Embryo Adoption (with Katie Cline)

what is embryo adoption podcast interview with katie cline
It’s the miracle of life and it’s a miracle of science and it’s a way to help people who would love to be pregnant but can’t, and would love to have a baby but can’t.

As many of you know, our sound engineer is currently out because he and his wife just had their first baby.  Today we honor him and parents everywhere with an episode all about babies and the interesting ways we can have them.  Many prospective parents face difficulties when trying to get pregnant.  Today’s guest, Katie Cline, will explain the various options available today to have a child.  We’ll take a deeper dive into Katie’s forte, embryo adoption, and how this relatively new procedure is helping struggling couples have children of their own.

There’s an estimated 28 couples waiting for every baby available for adoption in the United States.
We wanted to make a way that the prospective parents and the embryo donors could really get to know each other.
