Jones Institute PA

The Jones Institute at West Penn Allegheny Health Network is one of many fertility clinics in Pennsylvania that Baby Steps Surrogacy Center, Inc. is proud to work with as part of our families’ surrogacy experiences.

Whether you are a surrogate mother or the intended parents of your future baby, you will more than likely need to know about and participate in certain reproductive procedures in order to achieve your goal of creating a healthy pregnancy. As such, we have gone into further detail about two of the third-party reproduction services provided by the Jones Institute PA: intrauterine insemination and egg donation.

Intrauterine Insemination

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is commonly used when there is an issue with male fertility or when using donor sperm in order to become pregnant. The sperm are placed inside of the surrogate mother’s uterus during ovulation so that the sperm have a better chance at fertilizing the egg.

By increasing the number of sperm that are introduced to the egg, your odds of achieving a pregnancy can be increased. Many couples and individuals will choose IUI as an alternative reproduction option as it is far less expensive than in vitro fertilization (IVF), and because it is much less invasive, it is often a good starting point for your surrogacy experience.

If you are interested in learning more about IUI at the Jones Institute in Pittsburgh, or if you are considering IUI for your surrogate mother, consult with our Pittsburgh team at Baby Steps Surrogacy Center, Inc.

Donating Eggs at the Jones Institute

Surrogacy, in some cases, would not be possible without egg donors. Potential egg donors can meet with the team at the Jones Institute to learn more about the egg donation process and how it may impact them.

Generally speaking, a woman who donates her eggs will be given a trigger injection up to thirty-six hours before the egg retrieval procedure. During the procedure, the eggs will be suctioned out of the ovaries so they can then be donated to a family or individual in need.

Egg donation is a larger commitment than it may seem, so before making the decision to become an egg donor, you should speak with your close friends, family, and your physician about any concerns you may have and the process as a whole.
