Survivorship Center: Alternative Options for Building a Family

For men and women who are not able to have a biologic child, or for women who are not able to carry a pregnancy, there are still options for building a family. These include:

  • Donor sperm or eggs
  • Donor embryos
  • Gestational carrier or surrogate (another woman carries a pregnancy with your embryos)
  • Adoption

The resources below can provide you with additional information on alternative family building options.
