IVF for lesbian couples in Greece

EmBIO Medical Center’s high success rates in fertility treatments, coupled with Greece’s progressive patient-friendly legislation, make it possible for same-sex female couples to get pregnant using IVF in Greece.

EmBIO has a long-standing history in Greece of successfully meeting the reproductive needs of same-sex female couples and lesbian communities with compassionate, patient-centered care. They believe parenthood is a gift EVERYONE should be able to enjoy. Their mission is to ensure each patient receives exceptional individualized care during their assisted reproductive treatments to conceive and deliver healthy babies.
For nearly 20 years, EmBIO has provided patients with a highly successful donor egg program with IVF success rates reaching 70% for donor egg patients. Their specialized experience and breakthrough technologies have helped more than 15,000 babies be conceived and thousands of patients become parents from around the world.

IVF options for lesbian couples

EmBIO’s fertility staff are specialized and experienced in all methods of IVF treatment, giving them an advantage in treatment success compared to other fertility clinics. Women in same-sex relationships can fulfill their lifetime dream of becoming mothers at EmBIO by using their own eggs, donor eggs, donor sperm IVF, donor sperm insemination, EmBIO's gestational carrier services or a specialized treatment solution.

If neither female partner is able nor chooses to use their own eggs, the EmBIO Donor Egg and Sperm IVF Program makes it easier for single women to have a baby of their own. Read EmBIO's patients' egg donation success stories.
EmBIO's program offers the largest selection of approximately 170 thoroughly screened and tested egg donors in Greece. They have performed many treatments using donated sperm from Cryos International, a safe Danish sperm bank that provides many donors at any given time. Their highly trained donor coordinators help each patient find a match meeting their unique requirements from a diverse selection of young, healthy, high-quality donors who would love to share their gift of life.

Lesbian couples seeking IVF can start a treatment cycle at EmBIO immediately as there are no waiting lists. All egg and sperm donors are anonymous and identities are kept strictly confidential.  Patients make the final decision on which donor they want to be part of their treatment.
Most importantly, EmBIO's affordable advanced fertility treatments using donor eggs are much more likely to help same-sex female couples achieve success to start a family.  Donor egg rates are much higher at 70% than IVF cycles using a woman’s own eggs.
With donor egg IVF, one or both of the female partners can enjoy the same wonderful experience of pregnancy by carrying and nurturing the baby in her own womb.  This allows for strong biological and developmental relationships within the family.
IVF also allows women in same sex relationships to freeze embryos for future pregnancies and offers higher success rates for older women, as only the best eggs produced are selected for fertilization.

Family building

As a lesbian couple, your concerns about building a family will be the same as those experienced in other types of relationships. At your initial EmBIO IVF consultation (in person or via phone) you can discuss these concerns with your physician and other members of your personalized fertility team. They will begin to develop a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan for you.
EmBIO's successful IVF treatments are helping many same-sex female couples embrace their fertility and maternal desire to be mothers.  
After conception, the EmBIO team will monitor your pregnancy progress through ultrasound scans transmitted in strict confidentiality by their associates all over Greece or your obstetrician/gynecologist back home.
