A Carrot member and her husband living in the U.S. wanted to retrieve embryos from overseas.
After recent unsuccessful IVF attempts and learning that accessing more eggs would be a challenge, she and her husband wanted to use embryos they had previously frozen while living in Australia.
However, trying to find a qualified transportation company that could safely move their embryos proved overwhelming — so they were beginning to lose hope.
The Carrot Care Team got to work, helping the member understand the legalities of shipping embryos internationally and connecting her with a U.S fertility specialist who would accept them. The Care Team enabled the member and her husband to choose between two options: travel to Australia to receive IVF there, or ship their embryos to a high-quality Carrot provider in the U.S.
The member and her husband decided to ship their embryos to the U.S.-based Carrot provider. They received IVF care with the continued support of their Care Team.
