Shared motherhood

Shared Motherhood, also known as intra-partner egg donation has been designed to give both you and your partner a way to share in your family building experience with Care.

With Shared Motherhood, both individuals in the couple can both take part in the IVF journey to family as a shared experience right from conception. One partner donates eggs to her partner in IVF treatment, and is the ‘biological mother’. The other partner carries your baby and experiences the pregnancy as the ‘gestational or birth mother’.

The Treatment Process

Shared motherhood gives a number of emotional and psychological benefits to both partners. It allows both partners to experience and share in your journey to parenthood. And if you decide to have another child you may decide to reverse your roles
