Intended Parents Using Egg Donation in Kansas City: Coping With The Stress Of The Process
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | February 3, 2015
For most intended parents that use an egg donor to help increase their chances of success in building and growing their family, it comes at the end of a very long road of disappointment and past failed attempts to conceive. After years of trying and failing, many intended parents are stressed and have a hard time being hopeful that an egg donor will be the final answer.
Unfortunately, using an egg donor to attempt in vitro fertilization does not give you a 100% chance of success, but for most, it greatly increases the chance of having a baby. It is important that once the decision is made, intended parents let go of all of the stats and find a way to reduce stress and allow yourself to be hopeful.
How to go about doing so will be different for everybody, but these strategies will help most people reduce the stress of the treatment process:
- Improve communication with your partner/spouse.
- Look for support in new people/places.
- Talk nicely to yourself. You are going through a very difficult life experience.
- Focus on the present.

Egg Donor Program Disclaimer
Pathways to Parenthood Surrogacy Agency’s egg donor program is no longer in operation. After many wonderful years of helping families grow through egg donation, the difficult but necessary decision was made to close the program. The Covid pandemic’s economic impact and change in market conditions greatly influenced our decision.
The good news is that we are still building families through surrogacy. Plus, given our years of experience, we can provide education and guidance regarding the egg donation process for family building, and also recommendations and referrals for finding an egg donor. Please contact us for more information.
