The Gift of Life
If you’re like many people who have completed their family after a successful IVF treatment and have embryos they don’t intend to use, it’s likely you’re not quite sure what to do with your remaining frozen embryos. Embryo donation, or gifting your remaining embryos to a CNY Family in need may be the solution for you. Although there are many alternatives, we at CNY believe nothing is more powerful than embryo donation.
Known Vs. Anonymous Donation
Types of Embryo Donation
At CNY, we understand that people have their own reasons for and hesitations against donation. Some individuals would like to get to know the individual or couple they are donating to, potentially even forming friendships that their children may share. Others, however, would like to remain anonymous, giving the gift of life to a “stranger,” with no personal information exchanged between parties.
That’s why at CNY we have two separate programs so people can donate in the way that best suits their personal wishes.
Facilitated by our donor team, our anonymous donor embryo program allows for an anonymous donation that keeps the identity of the donors secret while still screening the donors for genetic disorders and collecting information to help recipients select the appropriate embryo(s).
For those looking to form a relationship with their recipients and potentially know the child born from their embryos, we host a private Facebook group to facilitate relationships between potential donors and recipients.
