My intention to donate my eggs started when I
chatted to one of my close friend. She advised me that she had problems with her fertility. She also made me aware of the various options
available. Having two beautiful baby girls, I felt the need to help someone less
fortunate then myself. I then came across baby2mom, where I
met Jenny and where my amazing journey started.
Jenny contacted me and asked me questions about
my myself. Whatever questions I had, I felt really open and comfortable.
Jenny then sent me details of all the information they required to create a
profile for me. After the profile was created, it was uploaded on the baby2mom database. Within no time a couple was
interested in me. baby2mom informed me about the couple. I then informed them
that I would love to help the couple, but I needed to first chat to my husband
about it. He agreed to support me throughout the whole process. Jenny kept me
in the communication loop through out.
On the 17th of February I had to fly
to Cape Town. This is when I met Faith from Medical Tourism. Faith fetched me
from the airport and took me for my appointment at Cape Fertility Clinic for
my bloods and scan as well as seeing a counselor. I also had a chat to the doctors who
explained the whole process to me and answered all my question I had. I felt
comfortable and at ease.
Faith really made me feel so comfortable. After
I was done with all my appointments, she dropped me at the airport. She was
On the 24th of April I flew to Cape
Town for the remainder of the egg donation cycle. Medical tourism fetched me from the airport and took me to the guesthouse. I then met Faith again who gave me a tour around the
guest house in which I was going to stay.
My experience in Cape Town was amazing. I got to meet people from different places and other countries. I made new friends we went
out together to explore Cape Town and to do shopping.
Cape Town is such a beautiful
place. It's relaxed and chilled. The people are so friendly. I have been to to see the nightlife in Cape Town with friends and family. It was such
an amazing experience, it's something you do not see everyday, well at least not here in Johannesburg. Friends took me to see the Waterfront which is amazing
as well as Sea Point. These are very beautiful places, I felt as if I was in a different
part of the world. What was even more amazing, I went to Camps Bay, oh my word! I was amazed, it was like
heaven on earth.
There was a time when I felt home sick missing my
family. It was just one of those days and moods. But Jenny from baby2mom made
my mood change and brought a smile to my face and made me feel better by
sending me beautiful flowers.
On the 4 May I had my egg retrieval. I was a bit scared, but the doctors and nurses made me feel very comfortable and took good care of
me. I was in the best-hands.
After the procedure
was done, the nurses and doctors came to see if I was fine and if I needed anything. I felt so special at that moment.
When I felt I was well and that I was not feeling dizzy and
sleepy, I walked to get Faith from Medical Tourism, she was waiting for me. She made sure I was fine and
good to go home. She was right by my side.
Then something amazing and wonderful happened... The couple
that choose me left me the most
amazing gift that anyone ever gave to me. It was 3 beautiful recipe books and a
card. That made me feel so special, it left me speechless. It gave me more
inspiration. That for me was more then enough and till today I am
so happy and excited about my books that I started using and trying out. I really
