Embryo Donation: How You Can Help Someone Else’s Family

From frustration to joy, the journey to overcome infertility and bring a child into your world is life changing. If you’ve been there, and are fortunate enough to know the elation of finally being able to conceive through in vitro fertilization (IVF), congratulations are in order! So, now that your family is complete, what will become of your remaining embryos?

It’s a question millions of lucky parents ponder each year. Once they have their dream family, they must decide what to do with the extra embryos of a successful in vitro fertilization. There are three options to consider: Freeze, thaw, or donate the embryos.

Embryo donation can help other families

Of course, this is a very personal decision and only you can make it. However, for many families, donation is a particularly rewarding option. Think of it this way: You would be providing an opportunity for life. You would be “paying it forward” by helping another family experience the wonder and delight of children.

Imagine giving a hopeful mom-to-be the chance to carry and have children. It will change her and her partner’s life, and maybe even yours. Donating your embryos is not only a selfless choice, it’s a wonderful gift for the adoptive family and the child. You can even be involved in the process of selecting a family.

But what about those all-important success rates?

Embryo donation success rates are excellent. Many couples for whom IVF has failed can still give birth through donated embryos. Statistics even show that overall, implantation success rates are higher using embryo rather than IVF.

What Our Patients Say About Us

RGI made our dreams come true! And Samantha’s gift of hope….there really aren’t words to express how they changed our lives. We won their grant in 2019 and it has continued to bless us several years later. Every time we make a financial decision I think of SGH and how I don’t know if it’d be possible if it wasn’t for them.
RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope has forever changed our lives in the best way possible because they have given us the greatest gift we could ever get—our sweet daughter. We have this joy of being parents we had previously only dreamed about, and honestly weren’t sure we would ever have. Now, everyday is filled with baby giggles and snuggles, cheering her on to her next milestone (which is currently crawling), and trying to be the best parents we can be. We will never be able to repay RGI and Samantha’s Gift of Hope, but we will forever be grateful to them and are daily reminded of it.
RGI made it possible for us to experience the joys of becoming parents. There is no greater feeling or love in this world that we’ve experienced than bringing Liam into this world. We truly understand the miracle and blessings babies are. SGOH we will forever feel grateful for. We cannot thank Lisa, Matt and Sam enough for their generosity and helping couples pay towards their IVF journeys. Honestly, SGOH really does provide HOPE. Winning the grant also helped us to feel like this is really happening, it’s meant to be.
Because of Samantha’s Gift of Hope, our dream of having a child came true. We could focus more on each step of the process and keep a positive attitude through it all instead of constantly worrying about what things cost and how we would make it work. Now, our sweet Tenley girl is 1 week old and I continue to be thankful each day for the opportunity Samantha’s Gift of Hope gave us. We are now living out our favorite roles as mom and dad and are filled with so much love for our little girl!
