Reciprocal IVF (ROPA)

Shared maternity from the first moment.

What is it?

The egg donation in pairs, known as ROPA, makes it easier for female couples to experience motherhood in a shared way. One being the genetic mother and her partner the pregnant mother, while both are the biological mothers.

Family models have changed and Fertilab Barcelona works with the most pioneering techniques to obtain the best results either for women who face maternity alone or lesbian couples.

Having Fertibank, our own egg and sperm bank allows us to offer the highest quality samples and the best results from the first attempt.
