Paul, Marilyn S., Berger, Roni, Blyth, Eric and Frith, Lucy (2010) Relinquishing frozen embryos for conception by infertile couples. Families, Systems, & Health, 28 (3). pp. 258-273. ISSN 1091-7527

This qualitative study sought to provide an in-depth understanding of the experiences of couples who have relinquished their stored frozen embryos to one or more infertile couples. All couples were recruited through a U.S. based not-for-profit, prolife, Christian “embryo adoption” agency. In-depth semistructured interviews were undertaken via e-mail. Implications for practice strategies, including effective ways for educating couples with surplus frozen embryos are offered.
