EGG DONOR PROCESS
What are the steps?
Whether you have a reproductive clinic you are already working with or you need assistance in choosing a medical provider, we will help you determine the best route to meet your needs.
1. Choose Compass
The first step is filling out our intended parent application for egg donation. This provides us with information on what you are looking for, where you are in your journey, requirements you or your clinic have, and provides you with a checklist of additional steps that need to be completed prior to matching.
2. Choosing a potential donor
Once all tasks have been completed from your side, we will present potential candidates to you that fit your criteria as well as hers. We will assess next steps along with your clinic as well as potential costs, timelines, and screening requirements.
3. Match Call
Once the steps have been clearly outlined and relayed to all parties, if all are in agreement on the logistical side, a match call will be set up between the egg donor and intended parents to get to know each other and determine if all parties are comfortable moving forward with the match.
4. Medical and Psychological Screening
Your donor will then schedule all required screenings with your clinic as well as the psychologist for evaluation. The screening process is dependent on your clinical requirements and may include travel.
5. Legal Stage
Once cleared by your clinic, you and your donor will complete and review the legal agreement with each of you having individual legal representation. During this stage, we will help both parties determine if additional medical coverage should be put in place prior to cycle commencement.
Once the clinic receives legal clearance, we are ready for the cycle calendar to be scheduled between your clinic and donor. Once dates are in place, we will work with all parties to arrange travel, appointments locally and at the home clinic, and ensure proper communication between your doctor, staff, donor, and yourself.
