About this title


Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation is a helpful, authoritative guide to negotiating the complex and emotive issues that arise for those considering whether or not to pursue egg donation. It presents information clearly and with compassion, exploring the practical, financial, logistical, social and ethical questions that commonly arise. This fully updated second edition also includes recent developments in the field, including travelling for egg donation and the emerging field of epigenetics.

This book will be valued by all those considering or undergoing donor conception, as well as the range of professionals who support them, including infertility counsellors, psychologists, therapists and social workers.

From the Inside Flap:

Increasingly, friends, family members, or physicians are asking , "Have you thought about egg donation?" It is asked of women who have lost ovaries (or ovarian function) to cancer treatment, women born without ovaries or having lost them to surgery, women unable to attempt pregnancy until they were over 30, young women being diagnosed with premature ovarian failure, and gay couples, more and more of whom are considering parenthood through collaborative reproduction.

Having Your Baby Through Egg Donation is the first comprehensive book for people considering parenthood through donated ova. It takes readers through the decision making process, focusing on questions they are likely to be asking themselves, including: "Are we candidates for egg donation?" "Will it work?" "How much does it cost?" "How do we find a donor?" "Should we ask a family member or work with a stranger?" "How do we talk about our decision with others?" "How will we tell our children?" Ethical questions related to egg donation are also examined: "Can a donor truly have informed consent?" "Is it ethically correct for donors to receive payment, and, if so, is the payment for ‘time and effort’ or for their eggs?" Perhaps the thorniest question of all is "How old is too old?"

For readers facing the unfamiliar new terrain of ovum donation, Ellen Sarasohn Glazer and Evelina Weidman Sterling are wise and compassionate guides. In simple, clear, informative, and sensitive language, they address feelings that arise for individuals and couples facing egg donation decisions. Drawing from different and complementary areas of expertise-Glazer is a counselor and infertility coach, Sterling a public health specialist and medical ethicist-they provide readers with information and understanding
