Our agency is in the same building as Atlantic Reproductive Medicine in Raleigh, North Carolina. We serve patients from all over the state, region, country, and the world.

The History of Atlantic Reproductive Medicine and Atlantic Shared Beginnings

Atlantic Reproductive Medicine was founded by physicians David Walmer, MD, and Susannah Copland, MD in 2012 to help patients with fertility challenges.

These physician-scientists wanted to provide the best-tailored, evidence-based treatment plans using the most up-to-date technologies to help individuals and couples achieve their dream of overcoming their fertility challenges to start or grow their families. They focused on providing a very personalized, relationship-based approach to caring for their fertility patients.

Atlantic Shared Beginnings was founded to help those patients who cannot use their own eggs to start their families or in the case of male couples, need an egg to start a family.

Atlantic Shared Beginnings works with these patients to create their own embryos. Recipients will choose an egg donor from ASB’s highly-screened pool. The fresh eggs selected from the chosen donor can be fertilized by a partner sperm or a donor sperm. As a recipient, you are matched with your chosen egg donor who is cycling for your batch of eggs.

Is Atlantic Shared Beginnings an Egg Bank?

Atlantic Shared Beginning is not an Egg Bank? Atlantic Shared Beginnings is committed to helping recipients create their own embryos that match their unique family needs. We only work with fresh egg donors selected by our intended parents.

Does Atlantic Shared Beginnings have a Sperm Bank?

Atlantic Shared Beginning does not have a Sperm Bank. Atlantic Shared Beginnings is committed to helping recipients create their own embryos that match their unique family needs. After choosing a fresh egg donor, intended parents use their partner’s sperm or can select sperm from one of our approved sperm banks, California Cryo Bank and Seattle Sperm Bank, to fertilize their eggs.
