Popular Family Building Options
At RSMC, we provide personalized family building options, taking our patients’ individual needs into consideration and streamlining the process by providing all necessary resources. Thanks to advances in reproductive technology, there are options for Intended Parents to have your child biologically related to you. The most common option is gestational surrogacy and using donor eggs. In this case, eggs from your donor will be fertilized via IVF using you or your partner’s sperm. The person providing the sperm undergoes routine testing to analyze sperm motility, volume and concentration. Your resulting embryos will be transferred into your surrogate’s uterus, and the pregnancy will be carried to term.
If you have a partner and want to ensure that the baby has a biological relationship to both of you, sperm from each person can be used to fertilize separate batches of eggs from the same donor. Once the child is born, you have the option of using a DNA test to determine which parent is the father. Whether your goal is a singleton or twins, you have the option to choose simultaneous or consecutive surrogacy journeys.
