Egg donation is the process in which a woman donates her eggs to enable another person or couple to conceive through assisted reproductive technology. Egg donors can be anonymous or known (a relative or friend).
Donor eggs are commonly used by:
- Females who have decreased ovarian function
- Females with premature ovarian failure
- Females with genetic abnormalities
- Same-sex male couples
- Male single parents
“I was hesitant about egg donation at first. I needed to come to terms with the fact that my DNA would not be passed on to my child. However, I quickly realized that my blood, body, and food would nourish the baby and biologically she would be mine. For me, it was important to experience pregnancy, carry a baby, and go through the birthing process. Thanks to the egg donor program and the unbelievable staff at MLF we now have a beautiful baby girl. She looks EXACTLY like her daddy but I know she has my spirit and personality!”
