Atlantic Shared Beginnings’ Pathway 2 is focused on affordability, flexibility and patient access to donor eggs. The pathway offers six FRESH donor eggs fertilized with partner or patient-selected donor sperm where all resulting embryos are cryopreserved.
Donor eggs, fertilization, embryo culture and cryopreservation of embryos are included in the pathway fee. Atlantic Shared Beginnings guarantees at least one good quality day five or six blastocyst. All resulting embryos belong to the recipient and may continue to be preserved and implanted as desired by the recipient at a clinic of the recipient’s choosing. Continued preservation and implantation are not included in the Shared Beginnings’ pathway fees. The fertility center of choice will charge the patient separately. Any future treatments with Atlantic Shared Beginnings will be billed as itemized fees.
Because this pathway starts with a larger number of donor eggs, it is possible to have multiple embryos frozen for future use. This option is attractive for patients who would like more than one child or patients who elect to include genetic testing of their embryos. Options are available to double the number of eggs at a discounted rate.
