Embryos are created through Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). In order to minimize multiple pregnancies, excess embryos are frozen (cryopreserved) in liquid nitrogen for future use. Eventually, a caring and compassionate individual, an embryo donor, may decide to donate these frozen embryos when they feel they have completed their own family.

 

Rather than discard the embryos or donate them to scientific research, the embryo donor believes that their embryos deserve a chance at life and a patient in need deserves a chance at parenthood. It is truly a wonderful and amazing gift.

 

What is gender selection and how does it work?
Gender selection is a procedure used to determine the gender of a potential baby at the embryo stage, and requires pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT) to be carried out on embryos created in the lab via in vitro fertilization. Embryo gender selection can be carried out for medical (preventing a sex-linked genetic disease from being inherited) or non-medical (family balancing) reasons. Results following medical gender selection potentially enables parents to select their preferred gender should healthy embryos from both genders be identified.
