Third Party Reproduction Overview

Family building with third party donors or surrogates

Sometimes the path to family building involves working with a sperm, egg, or embryo donor, or with a gestational surrogate. These “third party” options allow individuals or couples to move forward with family building when they might not otherwise be able to. These options also tend to raise a number of questions for prospective parents and require them to make a number of decisions. For example, how you find or select a donor or surrogate? What do you tell the child, or other friends and family members?

At the CRH, we have the resources to support people in building their families with the use of donor gametes and surrogacy.
