Anonymity at Shared Beginnings

We are dedicated to building families together and we looking forward to working with you!

Donor Anonymity

Will my donation be anonymous?

Yes, your anonymity is assured. Atlantic Shared Beginnings utilizes undisclosed donors, meaning that they do not disclose any identifying information about the donors.

What are my legal rights to the eggs I donate?

As an approved egg donor, you give up all rights and responsibilities to the eggs you donate or any child born from your donated eggs.

Do I get to meet the woman or couple who could possibly get my eggs?

The entire process is completely anonymous. However, if you move forward with donation there is an optional donor registry. While not mandatory, the donor registry is there so that a child (after age 18) conceived with a donor egg can find their donor.

What is an open ID donor?

An open ID donor is open to some form of contact at some time in the future.

What is a closed or anonymous donor?

Closed or anonymous donation means that the donor wants zero contact in the future, none at all, not even for medical emergencies.

What are undisclosed donors?

Atlantic Shared Beginnings utilizes undisclosed donors. The clinic does not facilitate any contact, nor do they disclose any identifying information about the donors or the recipients, neither between donors, nor between recipients who may have chosen the same donors.
