ROPA or Shared Motherhood – this treatment is aimed at lesbian married couples. In this case, one female partner undergoes ovarian stimulation and donates her eggs to her married female partner. After IVF with donor sperm, the fertilised embryos are transferred into the non-donating partner who carries the child until birth. If the couple are not married, this shared motherhood is not possible due to the laws on donor anonymity in Spain.

An interview with the staff of Vita Reproductive Medicicne

Read the staff interview

Given that any woman is obsessed with fertility problems and every passing month is a nightmare, I am infinitely grateful to the Reproductive Medicine Unit of Hospital IMED.

The bitter struggle that women suffer, which sometimes leaves you considering giving up for good, ended the day I attended your consultation via Skype. From the first moment you transmitted a security and confidence that opened my eyes and I knew that with you I would succeed.

And this was the case, as today I find myself pregnant with my little Sophie !!

Isabella Price

From the age of 27 I suffered very severe pains during my period. Finally I was diagnosed with endometriosis and my fallopian tubes had to be removed. For a moment my life no longer made sense and thought I would never be able to have children. Luckily at one of my visits to the gynecologist, he told me about the possibilities that existed within reproductive medicine.

I went to several centers in London, but none of them gave me enough confidence, so I decided to contact international clinics. IMED Hospitals in Spain and Dr. Antonio Moya inspired the confidence I needed.

With IMED everything was bearable; I was informed at all times about both the good and the bad. Finally I had an IVF treatment and I got seven eggs of which 5 were fertilized 2 were put back!! Now we only have to wait until our child is born.
