Will the kid look like me?
Even when a donor egg is used, the recipient, that is the woman to whom the embryo originated from the donor egg and sperm of the partner is transferred, has a great influence on the development of the fetus. Her health and the way she takes care of herself during pregnancy will also affect the baby, even after birth.
The extent to which the recipient has an impact on the child’s appearance is never known. However, another factor to consider is that the child will imitate their parents – their facial expression, body language and habits.
Also, the legacy is much more complicated than previously thought five or ten years ago. It was thought that a child was defined only by a donor egg and sperm. However, in the meantime, we realized that the appearance and personality of a child is not only influenced by their genetic material.
Currently, a new area called epigenetics is the subject of considerable scientific research. The field deals with the study of heritable, conspicuous features that do not involve alteration in DNA sequences. In other words, the influence of the environment, lifestyle and other factors on the appearance and behavior of the child.
How do hospitals choose the right egg donor?
Hospitals are responsible for reviewing and selecting each egg donor before entering the program. To ensure the best donor selection for the egg recipient, the physical characteristics of the donor, such as height, weight, hair and eye color, are first considered, and so on – often hospitals also use facial recognition software to help them with this work. mapping the biometrics of the egg recipient or patient.
Hospital coordinators use this information, along with the physical characteristics of the recipient, to analyze the donor database and find the best match.It’s quite understandable that the question of “what the baby will look like” to you as patients is extremely emotional. That is why we are trying to find, together with the hospital’s medical staff, the ideal donor using the latest technology combined with the human factor.
We offer oocyte donation programs in collaboration with Cyprus and Ukrainian hospitals, hospitals in which you can enter your program immediately without waiting.
