Embryo Adoption at NCCRM Print E-mail
bab096lhMany people have considered adoption as a way to build their families. Whether you've exhausted your fertility treatments or you want to open your heart to raising a child that's not biologically yours, there are some options you may not have thought about.

In general, traditional adoption can cost anywhere from $5000 to $40,000, or more. Embryo adoption through NCCRM costs between $3000 and $5500 and you get to experience the bond of pregnancy and childbirth.

At NCCRM, we currently have embryos ready to be matched to couples who want to build their families. These embryos are cryopreserved and have been released to NCCRM by current and former NCCRM patients who have completed building their families but would like to help other couples who, for whatever reason, cannot use their own eggs and sperm. The pregnancy rates for embryo transfers is very good and the whole process is considerably more affordable and less complicated than traditional adoption. Also, with embryo adoption, you do not have to do a home study as is required by traditional adoption.

As a recipient couple of an embryo adoption, you also get to experience the miracle of pregnancy and the excitement of delivering a baby. In addition, you have confidence during your pregnancy because you would have the opportunity to make sure you are getting proper pre-natal care, good nutrition, exercise and rest.

The Process:
Adopting couples need to fill out an Embryo Adoption Application to help NCCRM's staff in the matching process. They should bring this application to their first consultation with our doctors.

  1. This is so strange. When I applied with NCCRM they told me they could not help me because I already had children and they would only help the childless because they had so few embryos.
