“We are in awe of the fact we now have a baby”

dc7473fa7455ae701da53e101fa42811Our gorgeous boy was born on Wednesday. He weighed a lovely 3.92 kgs!!!

Everything is going really well, he’s perfect in every way, has figured out how to feed already!

Loves his cuddles and his baths!! He’s very content and chilled out. We are totally in love with him. I can’t stop looking at him and listening to the gorgeous noises he makes.
We are in awe of the fact we now have a baby and can’t quite believe that we are parents. We feel so blessed and privileged.
Thank you all and a big thank you and hugs to our special egg donor for giving us this wonderful gift.

Egg Donor Recipient Feedback

“Thank you so much for passing on our egg donor’s messages. She truly is an amazing person. Everyone involved has been so wonderful to us. We could not have come this far in the process without everyone’s assistance.

I’m very excited and pleased as today I have the embryo transfer.  Finally today has come! It is comforting to know I have so many people’s well wishes and positive thoughts. We are grateful to even get this far in the journey and hope for more positive results ahead.
Thanks for your love and support”

Inspirational Egg Donor feedback

wses068011On checking in with a egg donor following her recent donation..

“I am completely recovered. Following the egg retrieval I learned that my son received a full scholarship to one of the top high schools here in Cape Town for Grade 8.

Being an egg donor for Nurture has blessed me beyond what I ever could have imagined. I am excited and looking forward to my beautiful recipient’s results. I think about them everyday :-)”

“It is the most wonderful thing that could have happened to us”

“I will be going for my 16 week scan on Friday and everything is going well so far.
It is the most wonderful thing that could have happened to us and it was made possible by you guys and our wonderful egg donor, we can never thank you enough!”

The elated new Mother

“Hi Nurture,

Our beautiful bundle of joy was born on February 2nd. Thank you for your support and for helping me find the perfect donor. I now have my perfect baby. The joy I feel is beyond description.

Please continue helping bring hope to the many couples out there that are yearning for babies. You guys are awesome!

To Our Donor:

“I don’t know how to thank you enough for what you’ve done, words fail me. Your selfless act has brought us immense happiness. Please find time to read Numbers 6:24-26.”

Forever grateful”

Her incredible Egg Donor’s response:

Oh my word Mel !! Thank you so very much! You have absolutely no idea what this update means to me.

You know when I got that first update from you to tell me my recipient was pregnant, I thought that was the best news ever,  but now that she got the wonderful opportunity to experience childbirth, I think this update deserves to take first place as the best news ever! I’m so glad, I’m crying and I don’t even know how to thank you enough.

The Nurture team are really a group of remarkable women and yes I think you, the donors and recipients all deserve front row seats in heaven. You really are very good at what you’re doing and wherever I go, I tell people about egg donation and Nurture. I hope you get more wonderful donors to help create more beautiful families.

When I was busy with my first donation, I was busy with one of the most important exams of my life. I missed one subject because I travelled too far and didn’t make it back in time to the exam centre, they wouldn’t allow me to rewrite the subject, not even with a Doctor’s certificate.  However, when people ask me if I regret doing it, I say NO with much pride in my heart. I’m just so very glad that I was able to help create a miracle. I’ve made two people very very proud and happy parents. If I could do this all over again, I wouldn’t think twice”

To my recipient:

“I’m so happy for you and I’m so glad you chose me as your donor. I know you will take very good care of the little one, you really deserve to be parents.

I am the one who should be forever grateful. Thank you for blessing me with that wonderful scripture.

Xxx”

“I’m looking forward to making a couples dream of having a family of their own a reality”

dc7473fa7455ae701da53e101fa42811We personally interview every egg donor prior to her becoming active on our database.  This is to ensure she fully understands everything about the egg donation process and also gives her the perfect opportunity to ask any and as many questions as she needs to. Some really lovely feedback after welcoming  another fabulous egg donor on board.  We are as excited to see you embark on this incredible journey!

“It was really amazing meeting you this morning, I’m grateful for the time you set aside to meet me, thank you. Thank you too for all the information that you have given me, it does help knowing that with this process I’ve got the support and knowledge needed. Its also nice to see so many woman actually have a good experience through this, as its not a light decision to make in the first place. I believe this will be a great experience and I’m looking forward to making a couples dream of having a family of their own a reality”.

“I can say one day I made a difference”

“Today’s scan went well. I’m ready and excited for the egg retrieval.  I can’t believe how quickly it went.  In November I couldn’t believe that I was matched again, and here I am anxiously waiting to make a deserving couple’s dream of having a child come true. What an amazing feeling it is, and I can say one day I made a difference!
Egg donation is by far the greatest gift I could ever give to another woman in her quest to become a mom. The wonderful waves of emotion that I have experienced on this journey will last me a life time. I can’t thank Nurture and Cape Fertility Clinic enough for making this possible. I have finally found my purpose. Thank you xxxx”

More awesome Egg Donor feedback

“I am so glad that everything went well, and I’m hopeful that my egg donor recipients will have the baby/babies they’ve always wanted. Please convey my best wishes to them and also thank them for the gift they left for me…it is so thoughtful and much appreciated.
 I am also sad that today was my last egg donation,  it was truly an amazing journey – from start to finish.
 It was such a privilege to have worked with Nurture and Cape Fertility Clinic (CFC).  It’s been really comforting to have you and your support every step of the way, with every donation.
Melany, thank you so much for everything. I am so blessed to have met you and “worked” with you. I have truly found a friend in you. Like you said, I will always be a part of Nurture and Nurture of me.
Keep up the amazing work you do by making dreams come true.
I will always love you and will never ever forget you”.kiss.jpg

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!

Thumbs up“All went well, the Dr said he got 13 big, beautiful eggs.

 WOW!!! I can’t believe my second egg donation is done and dusted and I got the opportunity to be in a position to help as a donor again!

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!  My health and safety was top priority to them.  Mel was supportive during the entire process, which I am so grateful for.  Nurture and the entire CFC team of staff are so professional and friendly.

Not everyone understands what being an egg donor is all about, it’s not just taking a bunch of pills and injections, you are helping someone/a couple become a family.   The entire process is humbling and to have the opportunity to help someone in need is heart-warming.

I’m looking forward to being an egg donor again in the future.

To my recipient – may this be the start of an amazing journey, I hope that it is everything you hoped for – and lots more!”
