Santa Barbara Fertility Center Assisted Hatching

Assisted hatching is a laboratory procedure used on embryos that have a thicker outer shell, or zona pellucida. Through assisted hatching, a small hole is drilled into the shell, allowing the embryo to grow and expand, and eventually hatch out of the shell in order to have the opportunity to implant in the uterus.
