Ontarians donating unused embryos from IVF

Posted by & filed under Eggs, IVF.

Our friend Erica Berman, PhD, sent us something interesting: a unique embryo donation program run by Beginnings. Essentially, embryos are donated by families who have gone through fertility treatments and no longer have a need for them. It works a lot like open adoption—biological parents choose intended parents as recipients of the embryos. The process is straightforward and relatively economical compared with other third-party fertility treatments.

To learn more, check out the Globe & Mail article or visit the Beginnings website.

I’m interested to hear what you think of this donation program. Leave your opinion in the comments!
