I heard that PUAH provides supervision. What is supervision and why is supervision necessary?
AnswerFor all fertility treatments that involve genetic material (sperm, ova, embryos) that may be used to achieve a pregnancy a halachic supervisor must be present. These supervisors are specially trained and are highly knowledgeable about the medical process as well as the relevant Jewish laws. All aspects of the lab work are overseen, including sample washing, centrifugation, freezing, and loading of pipettes. When samples need to be incubated or stored they are locked in dedicated incubators, storage tanks or in separate sections of a larger unit. An embossed seal is also affixed to ensure that no possible mistake can be made. To date, almost 50 mistakes have prevented by the PUAH supervisors worldwide. Each case is analyzed to improve future supervision. Click here for more information about supervision or to order supervision.
What does PUAH's educational program consist of?
AnswerProper education about fertility, medicine and halacha is important to help you and others on the path to building a healthy family. We offer a wide variety of courses, lectures and seminars for couples, medical professionals and rabbis, as well as the community at large. Click here to learn more.
