In short, we are a team of experienced surrogate mothers and former intended parents who have various personal and professional experience in surrogacy and egg donation. More importantly, we have the passion to help create families. We are here dedicated to providing the best support to our angel surrogate mothers, egg donors, and deserving intended parents. IVF stands for In Vitro Fertilization. It is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART). From a high level, it consists of three major steps: retrieve the eggs, fertilize the eggs, implant the embryos into the uterus. The process begins with the female being stimulated with injected hormonal medication based on an IVF stimulation protocol. With this stimulation, the female will likely produce multiple mature eggs in follicles, which are fluid-filled structures in the ovaries. While the female is taking the medication, different key hormone levels in the blood and follicles size are regularly measured and closely monitored. When the follicles sizes reach 15-20mm diameter, they are generally considered to be mature. When that happens, egg retrieval procedure is performed to take the eggs out of the ovary. Afterward, the fresh eggs will be fertilized by the sperms. In our programs, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), in which a healthy-looking sperm is injected into an egg, is used to fertilize the egg to enhance success rate. Successfully fertilized eggs grow into embryos. If parents are interested in gender selection or genetic disease screening, cells can be extracted from the embryo to identify the gender and see if it is genetic disease free. In the last step, the female will take hormonal medication to prepare her body for the embryo. When the body is ready, one or multiple embryos are delivered to the female’s uterus. When the embryo sticks, pregnancy takes place and nature will do the work. All of our clinics have decades of experiences performing IVF procure with a strong track record. In traditional IVF, eggs are mixed with prepared sperm in culture media. Time will be given for the sperm to fertilize the eggs. The fertilized eggs will be transferred into an incubator to grow for 3-5 days in general until embryo transfer or embryo freezing procedure takes place. ICSI is different from this routine procedure. In ICSI, a single healthy-looking sperm is selected and injected into each egg using a tiny needle under microscopic guidance. ICSI is originally used when the sperm fails to fertilize the eggs. In our programs, ICSI is used from the start to ensure fertilization takes place. We have huge databases of young and healthy egg and sperm donors. For the egg donors, they are mostly in their 20s and well educated. We can help you find the right donor based on your preference on physical appearance, race, education level, etc. They are evaluated mentally and physically properly before they enter the program so that your chance of success can be maximized. In some cases, you can interview them through video conference or in person.
