Atlantic Shared Beginnings offers a unique program where you can create an embryo using fresh donor eggs with either partner sperm or donor sperm. There are different programs for pregnancy with donor eggs you can choose from to fit your individual needs.

“Dr. Walmer, and Stephanie were all great to work with. They made you feel like they truly cared about you and their ultimate goal of getting pregnant and having a baby. Dr. Walmer is such a kind and caring person and after our transfer I am pretty sure he either prayed or had words of encouragement to say. They were very reassuring throughout the whole process. Thank you so much! On April 6, 2022 we welcomed our little miracle into the world.”

I had the best experience here at ASB! Dr. Copland is the best at explaining all the steps in detail. We got our miracle baby girl and couldn’t be happier! Thank you again!

Jamie P.


Our experience was extremely satisfactory. We felt informed, prioritized, and supported. I would absolutely recommend Atlantic Fertility and Shared Beginnings to anyone hoping to grow their family.
