The decision to proceed with the pathway to pregnancy with donor eggs is a highly personal and sometimes daunting decision. At Atlantic Shared Beginnings, we are committed to helping you make choices that are best for your situation, beliefs and lifestyle.
Some of the reasons that you may choose donor eggs include, insufficient eggs or sperm; advanced age; cancer or other medical illnesses; predisposition to a genetic condition.
We understand that there is a lot to consider when proceeding with a donor egg or embryo pathway. Most importantly, is the chance of success. And, our results with donor eggs and embryos are notable.
Atlantic Shared Beginnings will help you navigate this very personal journey and important turning point in your life.
Egg donors can be anonymous or known, all of which is managed through egg donor banks. Anonymous egg donors are healthy women between age 21 and 31 who do not smoke and want to give the gift of life to those faced with infertility. Once a woman applies to be an egg donor, she will go through extensive medical, psychological, genetic and infectious disease screening.

What will I know about my egg donor?
Once a donor has passed our testing, she becomes available to be matched with a waiting recipient. You will be able to see our available donors through the patient portal. Information provided includes: age, height, hair color, eye color, highest level of education, field of study, a vignette written by a psychologist and the donor and her family’s medical histories. What’s more, childhood pictures are available at the office.
