California IVF Prepares for an Exciting Year Ahead and Celebrates with Family

The California IVF Family

In 2011, California IVF signed a collaboration agreement to take over fertility services for the UC Davis Department of OB/GYN, purchased a competitor’s facility in Sacramento and added three physicians to its roster. This coming year, California IVF will continue to expand and build the practice so we can help more patients in the Northern California region and from around the world.

Some of the most recent updates include: the installation of a new California IVF sign at our Sacramento facility, finalized renovation plans to bring a modernized IVF center to the Northern California region early next year, and new work with researchers at UC Davis to improve our ability to assess male fertility and embryo competency. ?Our California Conceptions Donated Embryo Program continues to grow and is providing an embryo adoption alternative for Canadian and Australian couples faced with restrictive oocyte donor laws.

Many people will find great joy and satisfaction through growing their family with adoption. There are many resources and types of adoption that may be available to couples. It is unfortunate that many adoption agencies make the adoption process very difficult, expensive, and time consuming. Everyone understand the need to ensure the safety and well being of the children, but many people find the process extremely difficult. Better understanding the various options for adoption will help avoid some of this frustration.

Private adoptions can happen when a mother desires to relinquish rights to the baby before the state or other adoption agencies are involved. These types of adoption are usually less cumbersome but are also more difficult to find. There are mailing lists and agencies that will work with you to increase your visibility to mothers that may wish to give their baby up for adoption.

Adoption agencies are regulated by the state and have to adhere to strict guidelines. The various agencies will have their own requirements including visits with a psychologist, a home study program (inspection), and often age restrictions. There are programs that make the process much easier than other agencies. Overseas adoptions offer many hopeful parents the chance to grow their family. The number of overseas programs are growing and there is a wider range of options than ever before. Adoptive parents are encouraged to thoroughly investigate the different agencies and programs.
