Deciding to proceed with egg donation as the solution to conceive and the answer to a dream is a fundamental one.
donation is only becoming a little more spoken about today, despite
this is as the treatment for hundreds and thousands of people every
year. This is because it remains a very private and intimate fact. In
fact, South Africans embrace a culture of great privacy and generally
select not to even share this with their parents or the child conceived
in this special way. My experience has found that persons from Europe
debate this aspect a little further.
But why is the decision so
private and so secretive is the question. Well, really to procreate is
exceptionally special, it is part of life and part of being human and
more specifically with the eggs, a very significant part of being a
woman. The contribution to the creation of a mini me, a reminder of how
this mom to be was as a child and the empowerment of being able to
produce offspring are very important feelings.
It often happens

any possible understanding or anticipation that egg donation may be
mentioned and this can certainly be devastating and earth shattering.

woman may anticipate that egg donation is required or may also need to
go through the learnings and appropriate understand of what this
entails, but still certainly require a period of acceptance and
readiness to accept and process this new information.
donors who contribute to the help dont only give life as in their
contribution of their seeds, they also help to heal this broken heart,
anguish and anxiety evident after a person has heard this news.
and this is meant with the utmost of sincerity, egg donation is one of
the most precious and beautiful ideas created, enabling emotional
healing and uncovering the joy within a person.
