egg donation
What is an egg donor?

An egg donor is a healthy young woman between the ages of 19-32 who donates her eggs to a recipient who can’t have a child without donor eggs. Following the removal of the eggs from the egg donor the eggs are fertilised with the recipient’s male partners sperm or with donor sperm. The resulting embryo’s are placed in the recipients womb. This process gives her the opportunity to become pregnant and have the family she has been dreaming about.
