Embryo adoption is the newest method of planning your family, which combines assisted reproductive techniques with adoption, so that instead of adopting a baby, infertile couples adopt an embryo.
At Rotunda, we handle embryo donation like a closed adoption. There is absolutely no contact between the donor couple and the recipients, who never see each other. The recipient couple does not even need to inform their obstetrician that they achieved their pregnancy through embryo adoption! Unlike traditional adoption, the couple does not have to go through a legal process to adopt, but do so through medical treatment. This means that the couple ‘biologically adopts’ the embryo. There are many reasons why couples may prefer embryo adoption to adopting a child. For infertile couples, embryo adoption offers the unique opportunity to be pregnant, to bond with their child prior to birth, and to give birth. In addition, embryo adoption may be much more affordable than traditional adoption in the countries like the US. Embryo adoption also offers couples privacy and secrecy, so that they do not need to worry about societal acceptance of their adopted child. Also in India, certain groups such as Christians and Muslims cannot adopt. Embryo adoption can be an extremely attractive option for them. Embryo adoption is an alternative for infertile couples who need egg or sperm donation.
The best results with embryo adoptions are with fresh embryo adoptions, which are done with a Donor Egg IVF Program.
