“You made this whole process so easy”.



Nurture take pride in guiding, supporting and caring for both our recipients and egg donors throughout their donation cycle.  Our recipient had this to say during her cycle….

“Thank you so much. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with your organisation. You made this whole process so easy.

We sincerely appreciate your help”.

Egg donation is a beautiful gift!

Another beautiful baby girl has made her entrance into the world. Special thanks to their amazing egg donor for making this dream a reality for her parents. Egg donation is a beautiful gift!


“We are now the very proud parents of the most beautiful and sweetest little girl.

She is now 7 weeks old, growing at a pace and charming us with her gurgles, coos and magical smiles. She seems to be a chatterbox and loves to ‘talk’. 

We are so immensely grateful to your organization for giving us the opportunity to have her. I could never have imagined the joy and love that this little baby brings us and she has totally transformed our lives in the most perfect ways.”

“Our experience with Nurture was amazing!”

Egg Donor Recipient Feedback:


“Just wanted to let you guys know that our baby boy was born a few days ago. He is absolutely divine and we are so glad we didn’t give up! He is the love of our life and just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and the team at Nurture.

Our experience through the whole process with Nurture was amazing!”

pink heart 5“We have some positive news.  Our beautiful daughter was born on the 5th of July. She is a precious girl and we love her to bits.  She is a very good baby, feeding and sleeping very well. She is very special and has set our town abuzz with excitement.  There are gifts and cards still arriving every day, including 3 today!!
Thank you so much for everything you did to facilitate our journey.  There were a few obstacles along the way, but we got there in the end after 8 and a half years” xxx

Beautiful words from our egg donor recipient….

“Even though you must have been through hundreds of egg donations, I felt that you understood what it was like for me as a first time recipient. You were patient, and always available – you answered questions that I should have been able to ask my doctor but didn’t feel comfortable doing. You literally changed my life – our beautiful daughter was born 4 years ago and is everything to us.

Thank you Nurture xxx”

“I am so honoured to have been part of this”

“This warmed my heart so much.  Please tell the future parents that I am so honoured to have been part of this journey with them, and to help them with one of the most beautiful things in life. I honestly hope everything goes smoothly for them and that they are blessed abundantly with their future family. It has truly been an amazing experience for me and I wouldn’t change a thing.
Please, please, PLEASE send them all my love”

Love notes between an egg donor & her recipient

We shared the news of our deserving recipient’s pregnancy news with her egg donor….
Her donor had this to say:
“That is the most amazing news on the day my sister went into labour of her baby girl.
“It brought tears to us all, and a moment of silence, in which we all realised how blessed we are that we can build our family without even blinking twice”.
At first my mum and sister were a bit sceptical about my donation, they now fully understand and are incredibly proud of me.
I am SO SO SO happy that we were able to change this family’s life and make their dearest dream come true.
I can’t even express :-)
I hope you Nurture ladies will keep up this incredible work and make as many couples as possible a family.
Lots of love and all the best for you and the family, please let them know how happy I am for them and that I didn’t regret my decision for a second.
On receipt of her egg donor’s note – our recipient’s feedback 
“Oh my God! This is really beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes too…… I really don’t have enough words to express how thankful I am and how much I appreciate her help, I can just feel…..
Although I never met her, I immediately felt positive vibes when I was going through her profile and I sense that she did the donation with the great desire to really help us. I think that she is a wonderful person with a beautiful soul.
Thank you all Nurture ladies for your help too! It is so nice that you help dreams come true for couples like us!…. And thank you so much for having the perfect donor for us.
I will update you later on how the pregnancy develops. I hope that everything will be fine and we will be able to share some baby pictures with you”

“Your positive energy has kept me going”

shutterstock_341731643 copy 2“Today was a special day…the retrieval day and sperm donation from hubby.

My fingers are crossed for a beautiful outcome…

Do let me know how our egg donor did…how many eggs were retrieved, how many fertilised and the grades for our embryos etc.

This would be my first informed IVF cycle, since I engaged with the fertility clinic in 2011.

I think a donor IVF cycle is better than a standard IVF cycle, in that there is someone responsible for taking care of your cycle, you are like their patient and kind hearted Gerida always makes her recipients forget the emotional side of their cycle with her humour and jokes! Keep it up girl. …we shall keep sending ladies like me to you!

I cannot stop thinking of how difficult it was for me to decide on going the egg donor route. Your positive energy has kept me going and I am taking it a lot easier that I expected. You don’t know how much you have counselled me with your kind words.

Gerida, I appreciate you a great deal. Keep it up. Botswana will keep you very BUSY!”


Wonderful news from our egg donor recipient

“I’m happy to let you know that indeed a baby boy was born on the 6th January 2016.  We are both doing very well and he is two months old today.

No words can describe our excitement for the successful treatment.  We are so grateful for your assistance and professionalism in the way you treated us throughout the whole process.

God continue to bless and keep you, so you may continue to help people like us.

Thanking you, always”



A beautiful note from a recipient to her egg donor

“This morning I woke up to an email that told me the donor I had painstakingly chosen was no longer viable. After a long and emotional search I felt once again defeated and inadequate, you see it’s not just about choosing another woman to be the beginning of your future child’s life, it’s about realising once again that you can’t do it yourself. BUT then tonight the wonderful Kim at Nurture brought me you and I was once again reminded again why everything happens for a reason.

I just turned 42, I am the Director of four businesses and I passionately believe in ideas and creation and doing what you love. I am a talent agent (like Jerry Maguire but it’s not that glamorous in real life, no one ever completes you!), my job is to make other people’s dreams a reality. Somewhere along the line my dreams were ignored. It wasn’t a conscious choice, I didn’t mean to be here at 42 without a husband/partner or a family, I didn’t deliberately put career over children and I certainly didn’t choose to be diagnosed with early menopause at 41 making it impossible for me to have my own biological children. Stupidly I thought I had more time.

Reading your profile tonight made me smile and laugh, you sound a lot like the very wilful, ambitious and determined 20’s something I used to be and still am (just with more wrinkles)! I wasn’t as clear as you are with my goals at that age, I just loved the ideas, I loved creating something and seeing it to fruition, I loved working hard and seeing the results.

When looking for a female donor you want that person to be as much like you as possible, a Caucasian with blue eyes was important because that best physically represented me, but intelligence was equally important. Not necessarily academic intelligence, I was more interested in ingenuity, wit and passion, if I have to choose another woman to create my child then she had to be like me. By the way you write I can tell you are smart, I can tell you are quick witted, that you are curious and that you not just learn, but you absorb the information around you. That’s the kinda gal I am after! I love that you are an actress, it’s a craft I gave up too young and my Mum and I actually fist pumped and did the gig when we read that you have a knack for writing as it is something I am very passionate about and have been told I am very good at.

Suffice to say I am very grateful you came along, you seem like the perfect fit. Although, there is one more thing I would like to ask of you (as if you aren’t doing enough), I am hoping you will reconsider the ‘no’ answer to the question about being contactable if the laws in SA change. In Australia the laws are that a donor must be willing to go onto a registry for the child only to make contact if they wish after they turn 18, the donor still has the option at that point to say no they do not wish to be in contact, there is a chance SA may eventually end up making the same ruling. I am asking you this not because I expect my child would need to come looking for a mother figure, I’m asking because I feel I should on behalf of my unborn child. I don’t think this is my decision to make, I think if the option was there then it would be my child’s and yours to make and if down the track you decided you didn’t want to then you would have the option to say no then as well.

I have no idea if the decisions I am making today are right or wrong, I guess like any hopeful parent I will just do my very best.   So if for whatever reason he or she would like to learn more about their genetic heritage then I feel like they should at least have the potential to do that and as their future Mum then I need to try to give them that option. I understand if your answer is still no, and it won’t change my decision to request you as my donor, I just needed to ask.

Thank you”
