An embryo donation may be the blessing needed to make your family a reality.
At BBA, we help build families by matching donated embryos with loving intended parents like you who want nothing more than to grow your family.
We’ll facilitate the matching process and perform all coordination efforts before transferring your medical care to our partner clinic, ICRM.
Meet with one of our experienced staff members for an introductory meeting and consultation. We’ll explain everything, go over all intake paperwork, agency fees, and you will gain access to the electronic embryo database (Through Egg Donor Connect).
Our team will coordinate with you to find an embryo match that most closely meets your specifications. We’ll also coordinate everything needed for your journey for a known or anonymous embryo donation before any medical procedures or treatments.
From coordinating the embryo transfer through ICRM to scheduling all consultations and meetings, Building Blocks Agency is there every step of the way to guide you through your embryo donation journey.
An anonymous embryo donation means that the donor of the embryo will remain anonymous forever. Physical traits are still known, but the donors themselves are not.
With a known donation, the donors are identified, and additional legal work is required to establish the agreement.
If an anonymous donor is chosen, our team will coordinate the next steps to ensure that the journey is as seamless and stress-free as possible. As the recipient, you will be required to participate in a Reproductive Psychology Educational Consultation.
If a known donor is chosen, our team will coordinate the following:
It is our mission to help recipients achieve their dream of growing their families through a journey that is as streamlined and smooth as possible.
*For Anonymous embryo donations, a Reproductive Psychology Educational Consultation is required for the recipients and typically costs ~$600-800.
*For International patients, if an interpreter is required, this is an additional cost of ~$20-40 per hour.
#For Known embryo donations, a Reproductive Psychology Educational Consultation is required for both donors and the recipients, independently, followed by a joint consultation with both parties. A typical cost for all 3 consultations is ~$1,400-1,600.
In the event of failed transfers from the initial group of adopted embryos, re-access to the electronic embryo database will be $300, with additional fess if patients opt for Known embryo donation.
Disclaimer: A new patient consult with one of the physicians at ICRM needs to be scheduled to discuss potential embryo donation candidacy. A direct referral will then be made to BBA to coordinate the next step of an introductory meeting and consultation with BBA. The cost for the new patient consult through ICRM is not included in the BBA prices and services.
BBA directly partners with ICRM to help build families by matching embryos donated to ICRM from previous patients with recipient families.
When other infertility treatments are unsuccessful or too costly, embryo donation provides an alternative through high-quality embryos waiting to be matched with those who wish to achieve a successful pregnancy.
BBA will facilitate the matching process and perform any coordination required before scheduling the medical procedures or treatment that will take place under the care of ICRM.
BBA offers two types of embryo donations – anonymous and known.
An anonymous embryo donation involves no communication or connection between donor and recipient.
A known embryo donation involves an “open” relationship between donor and recipient, which begins with an introduction between the two parties.
All known embryo donations require a legal contract that solidifies the adoption terms between the donor and recipient.
