Collaborative Reproduction Options for Aspiring Parents
Egg donation and surrogacy provide exciting options for aspiring parents
struggling with infertility - and for same-sex couples, single individuals, and
other "non-traditional" aspiring parents who want to experience the rewards of
pregnancy and childbirth.
Egg donation enables aspiring mothers who do not have viable eggs - but who are
able to carry a baby - to carry a baby to term and give birth to a child that is
biologically related to the father. Click here to learn
more about becoming a
parent via egg donation.
For aspiring mothers unable to carry a baby - but with viable eggs - gestational
surrogacy enables conception with the biological mother's eggs; the gestational
surrogate carrier carries the child (or twins) to term but has no biological relationship
with the child or children. Click here to learn more

Also note that, for aspiring mothers without viable eggs and unable to carry a baby,
the combination of egg donation and surrogacy can enable the birth of a child that
is biologically related to the father (via his donation of sperm) but not
biologically related to the surrogate.
