Last but not least - Are you at a crossroads and can't decide what to do with your left over embryos? Maybe we can help.

Parents via Egg Donation (PVED) provides the unique opportunity for embryo donating parents who have completed their family building to connect with intended parents (embryo recipients) who are looking to create or add to their family. We are dedicated to providing embryo donors and embryo recipients the opportunity to find each other, with the ability, autonomy, and support to work out the details of their embryo donation on their own terms.

We offer a completely open embryo donation program, which will provide children the right and ability to know their genetic origins and each other. What that means is you the donating parent selects the individual or family to receive your cryopreserved (frozen) embryos. As the donating parent this is an opportunity to learn about the intended parents that will be receiving your embryos, what open donation looks like, and what continuing contact means to both families. In some cases both families may even choose to meet face to face (in person).

We help you do all the heavy lifting at no cost to the donating parents. Let us help you navigate the uncharted waters of embryo donation.

Our criteria in regards for accepting embryos is as follows:

We will accept embryos into our program if they are embryos created via Egg Donation, as well as Egg Donation and Sperm Donation (often referred to as donor/donor ) The cut off for embryos created via egg donation and genetic father sperm is age 55 without CCS/PGD/PGS testing.

If embryos were created using the genetics of the genetic parents (genetic mother and father) our cut off is age 36 for the female parent and 55 for the male parent without CCS/PGD/PGS testing.
