Q: How important is epigenetics when a woman uses donor eggs?The importance of epigentics and donor eggs

A: According to a statement by Dr. Alan Copperman, we are learning more and more about how maternal lifestyle, health, and wellness affects pregnancies. This field of “epigenetics” or “gene expression” is relevant to all pregnant women- whether they conceived with their own biological eggs or with donor eggs. For many women who require ovum donation to conceive, understanding the role that a mom can play in creating a healthy environment can be both motivating and reassuring.

Dr. Alan Copperman is a physician with Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York.
