Did you delay motherhood? Now you want to start a family but are worried it might be too late? Not with Neway! We would be honored to help guide you in your fertility journey and your dream of becoming parents!
Your initial consultation with Neway can help decide if using donor eggs and/or a gestational surrogate is the right option for your family.
Choosing your Egg Donor
Neway will be your partner in this process, helping to guide you every step of the way. In general, you want your egg donor to be a healthy individual, and relatively young (age 21-32). Regardless of the donor you choose, whether it be a family friend, relative, or an anonymous source, the individual will be screened extensively to rule out possible complications to your fertility journey. This screening includes infectious disease testing according to FDA guidelines, a questionnaire on family genetic history, fertility and past gynecologic history, and a fertility workup to evaluate potential for egg donation.
Egg Donor Options:
- A family friend or relative
- Frozen Eggs selected from NEway’s Egg Bank
- Individual selected from NEway’s database of eligible donors (fresh eggs)
- Frozen eggs selected from outside egg bank that are transferred to NEway
Choosing an egg donor is a very important first step in this journey and we will be here for you every step of the way!
Choosing your Gestational Surrogate
Your choice of a gestational surrogate may be a family friend, relative, or someone selected through an agency. Regardless of the source, as with the egg donor, this person will be screened extensively to rule out possible complications to your fertility journey. This screening includes infectious disease testing according to FDA guidelines, a questionnaire on past gynecologic history, and a fertility workup to evaluate potential for surrogacy.
The sperm donor can be a family friend, relative (of the other female partner), or from a sperm bank. Neway works very closely with the best sperm banks all over the country and can help guide you in this selection process.
Regardless of the sperm donor source, each sperm donor is screened extensively for infectious diseases according to FDA guidelines, as well as genetic screenings and a brief medical and family history is obtained. The sperm is then quarantined for six months to minimize risk of infection to you. If the sperm is from a qualified sperm bank then the six month quarantine process and screening has already been completed.
