Pregnancy Slot


Some treatment countries require a Pregnancy Slot. It is a means to limit the number of families with the same donor in each country. This gives you the right to use the same donor for more than one child. It ensures you a continued use of the donor’s sperm throughout your treatment, for as long as the sperm donor is available.
To make sure the donor is available for future treatments for siblings, please consider our Parent Storage

Pregnancy slots are required in the following countries:
  • Austria
  • Finland
  • Norway*
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UK

*Barnrett: In Norway, the pregnancy slot is mandatory and slightly different. It is called Barnrett, and it gives you the right to use a donor for one (1) child only. This means that you need a Barnrett for each pregnancy. As Norwegian law stipulates that there can only be 6 families but 8 children per donor, we recommend that you consider how many children you want and purchase the relevant amount of Barnrett immediately.

The Pregnancy Slot or Barnrett can be refunded if there is no pregnancy, and you wish to discontinue using the donor. This requires that the clinic/doctor confirms that there is no pregnancy; that no embryos are left. Please contact European Sperm Bank if you have any questions.
