Advances in technology have pushed egg freezing and egg donation into the spotlight as potential options for some women. But we still have a long way to go in making the process more accessible, supported, and overall more human-centric. We’re doing things differently around here, and we’re honored that you’re considering us as part of your journey.
We believe egg freezing can contribute to gender equality.
We stand for reproductive choice. And egg freezing is just that — a choice that a woman makes over her own body and future. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) states that egg freezing “promotes social justice by reducing the obstacles women currently face because their reproductive window is smaller than men's.” We couldn’t agree more, and we’re proud to do our part to lessen constraints placed on women by offering more accessible egg freezing options.
That said, we acknowledge that egg freezing and egg donation are not without their critiques. The processes come with big questions, and we want to be transparent about where we stand.
We believe women have the right to be experts on their fertility.
All three of us co-founders faced reproductive challenges when building our families. And all three of us wished we knew more about our own bodies when we embarked on our fertility journeys. Had we gotten the proper education about our reproductive health and options, or had we frozen our eggs at an earlier age, we might not have faced those roadblocks. We believe the dearth of fertility education today is truly anti-feminist, and we’re here to change that.
We believe anonymous egg donation is a thing of the past.
Our model honors freezers, donors, families, and ultimately, the donor-conceived children. While other agencies make false promises to donors of “anonymous” egg donations, we tell the truth. In a world of ubiquitous genetic testing, no gamete donation can be guaranteed to be anonymous. We work with all parties involved to build a relationship that feels right for them, and we encourage both donors and intended parents to consider the donor-conceived child’s best interest.
We believe egg donors should have a say in their donation.
We believe parents and donors should both opt-in to the match, and be on the same page for the type of relationship they want. Our donors specify their communication preferences up front, giving donors and families real options in the process.
For transparency's sake
We acknowledge that egg freezing and egg donation are not without their critiques. The processes come with big questions, and we want to be transparent about where we stand.
