If you’re female (please check!) aged 20 to 34, healthy and from a healthy family, you could be a very special person: you could donate a few of your eggs to people (Recipients) who need them to start their own family.
Yes, the National Health Act of 2003 (regulations about artificial fertilisation and related matters) confirms it’s all completely above board. It is true that there are some places in the world where you may not donate eggs; that’s why a large number of international Recipients who visit South Africa to use our service.
Of course. Once chosen, you will chat to our counseling psychologist. We want you to be entirely comfortable with your decision to help our Recipients become parents.
Our secure database is password-protected. You will join our list of Egg Donors, where registered ababySA Recipients (those looking for eggs to start a family) can view your profile.
It’s not a competition!
Obviously, your physical look is important. An infertile woman and her partner will often choose a donor who looks similar to her. So, hair- and eye-colour may be important. Or not. Your shared interests may be important. Or not. So, there’s no such thing as a perfect look and feel: we need women of all races, heights and appearance.
Couples (or singles) may want a child, but can’t fall pregnant using their own eggs. There are many medical reasons why this happens, such as premature ovarian failure, no ovaries, early menopause, age- induced ovulatory dysfunction and advanced endometriosis.
Hang on – as an egg donor you must be prepared to have internal examinations (by the fertility doctor) and injections on a daily basis (for 14 or so days). And, if you are married, your spouse’s consent is needed as well.
You know that you want to do this: Thanks. you are a special woman.
Now, please register with us.
Your name will be a pseudonym. Now’s your chance to use that name you secretly wanted! And published pictures are only of toddler-age and less.
This is a very serious, emotional and expensive business for infertile parents. Above all, they need to know that you are committed to give your time and to stay healthy during the process of helping another human being to become a parent.
