NEDC Baby Counter: 857
ANOTHER OPTION PROFESSIONALS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
There are an estimated 700,000 to 1, 300,000 embryos frozen in the U.S. About 20,000 are available for donation to another couple.
The goal of the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) is to give these embryos a chance at life and to give infertile couples a new name: parents.
The NEDC office and lab are located in Knoxville, TN. We are also the country’s only medically supervised, clinic-based non-profit embryo donation agency. The NEDC handles the medical, legal and social aspects of embryo donation. We work diligently to match donated embryos to couples across the country.
There is no cost to your patients to donate their remaining embryos. There is also no cost to your clinic. Plus, we offer a variety of placement options (open, semi-open or anonymous) for embryo donors.
Simply call us at 866-585-8549 and speak to our patient coordinator. We will supply the necessary consent forms to the patients, as well as arrange for infectious disease rescreening. At your request, we will also supply your office with consent forms to release you from liability for loss or damage during shipping. NEDC will pay for shipping fees using your delivery service or our own.
Before your patients get started on their journey of embryo donation or adoption, there are some important forms they will need to fill out. If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 865-777-2013 or call toll free at 866-585-8549.
