About Our Donor/Donor Embryo Programs
Atlantic Shared Beginnings offers patients a Donor/Donor Embryo Program. Our donor/donor embryos are created using an egg donor and donor sperm.
These embryos are not donated by other couples who have completed their families and have donated their remaining embryos.
The embryos in our program are high-quality PGT-A tested embryos created by an intended parent recipient who has chosen their egg donor from our egg donor database and a sperm donor from one of our approved sperm banks throughout the country.
Atlantic Shared Beginnings also has donor/donor embryos already created that are available for a recipient to select from our embryology database. These created embryos are part of our Shared Program because they are available for choice by more than one recipient.

Donor/ Donor Embryos FAQs
What are Donor/ Donor Embryos?
Donor/donor embryos are embryos made from donor eggs and donor sperm.
How does Atlantic Shared Beginnings Donor/Donor Embryo Program (DDE Program) work?
Atlantic Shared Beginning’s DDE (donor egg/donor sperm embryo) program is a unique way to share embryos created from donor egg and donor sperm.
Our DDE program coordinates fresh egg donations in which more than one recipient shares eggs.
The first individual(s) who start a DDE program select an egg donor from our donor database and a sperm donor from one of our partnering sperm banks to create a new profile for an egg donor’s next fresh donation.
The first DDE intended parent also selects how many embryos they want to receive from their new profile. Once the egg donor’s fresh eggs are fertilized with thawed donor sperm, the resulting embryos are available to the first intended parent.
Any remaining embryos are then available in Atlantic Shared Beginning’s embryo database for selection by other recipients. The DDE “shared cycle” means the embryos will be shared among more than one recipient.
Our donor/ donor embryos are created from eggs from donors 21 to 32 years of age who have completed comprehensive medical, genetic, and psychological screenings. The embryos in the DDE program are good to excellent quality and are cryopreserved (frozen) on Day 5 or Day 6. This process ensures the highest chance of success for an ongoing pregnancy and live birth.
What are donated embryos?
Donated embryos refer to embryos that are donated by individuals after their own IVF journey is complete and they have remaining embryos they do not need. They wish to donate these remaining embryos to others who are seeking to start or grow their own families.
What is traditional embryo donation?
Embryo donation by individuals who wish to donate their embryos to others is referred to as traditional embryo donation.
Recipients of donated embryos need legal counseling & contracts by a reproductive lawyer.
Embryo donation programs have fees related to their matching and administration services.
Each program will have its own requirements, which may include a home study.
Success rates with embryo donation depend on the quality of embryos at the time they were frozen.
What are the advantages of Atlantic Shared Beginning’s donor/donor embryo program over a traditional embryo donation?
Atlantic Shared Beginnings allows choice in donor selection and embryo testing. The majority of embryos in the DDE program have completed pre-implantation genetic testing (PGT-A) and are cryopreserved on Day 5 or 6 ensuring the highest chance of success for the recipient.
DDE recipients will see the full medical and family history of both the egg and sperm donor, reproductive psychology vignette, donor photos, and carrier screening. These embryos are created in compliance with the FDA and follow the American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s guidelines.
Atlantic Shared Beginning’s DDE embryos are created from eggs from donors 21 to 32 years of age, typically younger than individuals who participate in a traditional embryo donation. Donors have also completed comprehensive medical, genetic, and psychological screenings. DDE embryos are good to excellent quality and are cryopreserved (frozen) on Day 5 or Day 6. This freezing process ensures the highest chance of transfer success for an ongoing pregnancy and live birth.
