If you’re thinking about becoming a mother using donated eggs, here are eight questions and answers for you

As is only to be expected, women have a number of doubts when they first take the important decision to become a mother using an egg donated by another women. The first reaction is one of shock when a woman finds out that she will need to rely on egg donation. Once they have had time to come to terms with the situation, many women take it on board naturally and accept the option that will allow them to give birth to their child. For others, however, the process takes longer and it needs to be thought through before it can be accepted or, in some cases, rejected.
Women go through what is known as genetic mourning during the process when they become aware of the fact that the baby will not have their genes. According to the experts at Instituto Bernabeu, accepting this situation from the outset is the best way forward if patients are to avoid turning the doubts and questions that come up along the way into a concern or even an obsession for the future mother.

The Rafael Bernabeu Foundation and its social welfare calling

The Rafael Bernabeu Foundation, the social welfare foundation at Instituto Bernabeu, has been working towards helping to improve health, well-being and financial conditions in society since 2007. Support programmes for patients with financial difficulties, scholarships and long-term support for various NGOs and academic and medical institutions are just some examples of the work which is carried out “as part of our commitment to the people of Alicante.” To the company, “social responsibility is a must.”

The foundation was set up at almost the same time as Instituto Bernabeu in Alicante. Whilst work went on in the reproduction and fertility clinic, the needs of the local population surrounding the medical group as it grew and became more consolidated became clear. It was the company’s closest reality, its closest community, the people who could potentially one day walk past one of the groups newest branches. IB began donating part of its financial resources and this increased as the institution grew. Along with the company’s growth and strength came the decision to provide this giving spirit, which had been active for many years, with a more formal structure. The Rafael Bernabeu Foundation was born in the cold month of January 2007 with the aim of providing different causes and adverse circumstances with warmth and solutions.

“Our patients and everyone in the IB team are participants in this support aimed at the very same society which has enabled us to grow and to which we wish to return the favour,” says the Rafael Bernabeu Foundation. Since it was set up, its work, donations and activities have grown and centred around three core areas: health, training and financial support for NGOs. […]

PGD, PGS, CCS and PGT-A: are they all one and the same?

PGD or pre-implantation genetic diagnosis consists of a set of techniques used on the embryo prior to transfer to the mother’s uterus with the aim of studying any possible chromosomal and/or genetic abnormalities. Its purpose is to ensure that children are born healthy and put an end to the transmission of a given condition to offspring.
Huge steps forward in the analysis of embryo abnormalities have been made in the 21st century. The range of options in diagnosis as well as the reliability of the techniques have turned something that was a pipe dream only a few years ago into a reality. These techniques are now routine and Instituto Bernabeu is a worldwide leading entity in providing its patients with the latest developments in embryo genetic diagnosis. […]
