In the past 18 months, Shady Grove Fertility Center has established innovative partnerships with three UK fertility clinics -- the third just launched earlier this year.

Only then does the couple return to Maryland for embryo transfer. This streamlined, trans-Atlantic system results in pregnancy success rates comparable to those of couples using fresh sperm.
