The Donor Source

With exceptionally attentive care and a comprehensive egg donor database, The Donor Source has helped many international clients find an egg donor on their journey to parenthood. Each donor in our database has been carefully selected for academic aptitude and medical history.

Benefits in the U.S.

The United States offers international intended parents numerous advantages:

  • Highly Regulated Medical Care
  • Strict Egg Donor Screening Process
  • High IVF Success Rates
  • Favorable Fertility Laws
  • Safe and Easy Return Home

Contact and Trips to the U.S.

At The Donor Source, your case manager will be in frequent contact with you to select a U.S. egg donor and only one trip to the U.S. is necessary. Preparation for the IVF procedure can take place in the intended parents’ home country to minimize traveling. Travel to the U.S. will be for the embryo transfer. Your case manager will coordinate all of the fertility treatments with your U.S. fertility clinic of choice. If you have not chosen a clinic yet, The Donor Source is happy to help you find a successful U.S. fertility clinic. The recommended length for your trip is two weeks, to provide enough time to receive medical treatment.

The Surrogacy Source

The Surrogacy Source welcomes intended parents from all around the world, seeking to have a family via surrogacy. The United States features the most progressive surrogacy laws in the world, making it a great destination for international intended parents to find a surrogate.

Contact and Trips to the U.S.

The Surrogacy Source has extensive experience guiding intended parents as they navigate the international surrogacy process. Your case manager will be in frequent contact with you during the process of selecting a gestational surrogate as well as to discuss costs, medical procedures and legal issues. Meetings can be held over Skype, including your surrogate when chosen. We encourage regular communication between you and your surrogate from then on. Trips to the U.S. are encouraged during the pregnancy, if feasible.

The final trip to the U.S. will be for the birth of your baby. We recommend you arrive one week prior to birth (earlier if twins) and expect to remain in the U.S. for approximately two weeks after your baby has arrived. This will allow you enough time to obtain a birth certificate and passport for your baby.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • If you do not speak English fluently, please let your case manager know ahead of time so we can assist you in obtaining a translator.
  • Your case manager can provide recommendations with housing and transportation.

If you’re an international intended parent looking to travel to the U.S. or a domestic intended parent needing extra assistance, call our international line at (949) 872 – 2800 or your case manager to make arrangements with Fertility Source Companies!
