These issues have been raised before. It is so they hold the information for the child considering records could otherwise be lost or destroyed. It is for statistical and accuracy purposes and in no way would it be published on the birth certificate. I looked it all up last time someone asked.
It's to protect the rights of the child and consider in NSW where all the donor sperm details were manually removed from files before clinic was taken over by another entity.
It's just what is required.
Thanks KMP, missed the original discussion. Hope all is going well with your daughter and you are recovering quickly from the caesar.
Miss Sagi - don't say AT LEAST 2, you will give her a heart attack !
Yay 2 on board and hopefully 2 to freeze.... a big relief.

Fantastic news Emski, especially possibly getting two to the freezer as well. So happy for you. X
Emski – Great news all round for you!! You are PUPO with 2 and you have 2 hopefuls for the freezer. Wishing a smooth sailing 2ww.
AFM – Heard back from CFC re the 2 frosties. They said ‘frozen embryos are not graded as they are frozen, once frozen, we don’t grade them. They either survive the thawing process or not. FET success rate is 50% and egg donation 65%. There is a 20% chance that the embryos don’t survive the thawing, so you still have a very good chance of falling pregnant with the 2 remaining embryos’
I have some thinking to do..
Faith that sounds like bollocks - my frosties were graded 3AB and something else so they are graded. Did you ask Kimrentha or someone else? When ours were frozen we got the grading then.
