Why do people in Kansas City use egg donors to have a baby?
Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | July 10, 2019
The medical terminology given to women/couples that are candidates for utilizing an egg donor to conceive are women with premature ovarian failure or diminished ovarian reserve. Many people have never heard those terms, and will never fully understand the emotional and psychological burden of those that carry the diagnoses.
Emotionally, women and couples that utilize an egg donor to conceive do so because they want to realize their dream of experiencing pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. In some ways, the wonderful feelings of hope egg donation gives others, is similar to what people experience that receive the gift of organ donation to extend their life.
For those that dream of having a baby or babies, using an egg donor is not part of that dream, at least initially. But for those whose dreams are shattered by the diagnoses of infertility, and the inability to realize what we all assume is our reproductive right, it is an amazing opportunity.
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.
