My Experience as an egg donor...
Well at first I was a bit hesitant on the whole idea of giving apart of me away. It's a strange thought to know that there could possibly be another half of you out there, however as I started to process what this meant and how I could change the life of someone else I started to readjust my attitude toward the whole thing.
The process is a humbling one. What would I do if I were in their shoes? I know I would be devastated to say the least.
My first visit to the clinic was a heartsore reality of how many couples there are struggling to get the one and only thing they want more than anything else…a beautiful baby. How unfair is that? They could give these children the most loving homes, they are so wanted. It was in actual fact one of the easiest things I have ever done and I am so happy I did.
Every egg donor has their own personal reasons as to why they are willing to give their eggs to a deserving couple. My own is a bit complicated but it's what I wanted and needed to do this. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I don't know my recipient but I think of her often and hope with all my heart that the end result is a positive one.
The whole thing was so easy. From start to finish, painless, exciting and a journey. The doctors, nurses and baby2mom are amazing.
Thank you for the opportunity to change a life and hopefully help bring one into this world.
