National Infertility Awareness Week

Today is the start of National Infertility Awareness Week. To mark the occasion, we here at the Embryo Adoption Awareness Center want all families struggling with infertility to be aware of their options to achieve of pregnancy including embryo adoption.

“Given that this is National Infertility Awareness Week, we think it’s important for couples to know this option (embryo adoption) is available for them. Many medical professionals are still learning about this potential family building solution. It is certainly an economical option for those considering ART – especially if the couple is considering the purchase of donor human eggs. In addition, many clinic embryo donation programs have long waiting lists for patients interested in using donated embryos. Embryo Adoption Programs have donated embryos waiting for families.”

--Kimberly Tyson, Director, Embryo Adoption Awareness Center
