Embryo Adoption


Has anyone done or considered Embryo Adoption? I've done 2 rounds of IVF with 3 unsuccessful transfers and since I'm over 40 I don't think my eggs are the way to go any more. My clinic has embryos available for adoption that others who have extra embryos have donated. We have a list of couples to choose from but it's hard to pick and so scary. Just wondering if anyone else has gone this route or thinking about it. I would love to give a little embryo a home.

I don't personally have any experience of embryo adoption but I watch a lovely women on YouTube who has, she suffered from secondary infertility after 2 babies she also has 3 adopted children and new baby twins born though embryo adoption. I think some of her videos could help you decide.

I am considering embryo adoption. As you can see from my signature we are trying to find our path as well and embryo adoptions feels like a good path for us. We live in Canada though so I am having a hard time figuring out how it all works and what to do.

Miss Zoie - Thanks I will look that up!

S-secret - Your journey sounds as rough as mine, I'm sorry. Check with the fertility clinic you use as they may have embryos available for adoption. I'm not sure what the Canadian laws are. I can always give you the contact information for my clinic if you want as they have embryos available to choose from and don't require the home study and for the parents to choose you that some clinics require. You are added to a list and when you reach the top, you pick from what is available. It's a lot less money than a full blown IVF treatment.

Hope I checked with our clinic and they don’t do anything. I honestly think our clinic may be a bit of a dud as far as clinics go. I would love the name of yours. I have also been looking into private donation so hopefully that is an option too.
