Awesome message from one of our egg donors on her Nurture application

pink heart“Dear prospective recipient,

As long as I can remember, I have believed that choice is the most important thing we have. Some families were blessed with a healthy compliant body, one that would allow them to thrive and grow a baby, but there are some very deserving families, that for whatever reason, have not been blessed with the choice they so rightfully deserve. I want to help, as best as I can, in the only way I can. My body had eggs, she has stored them away and is waiting to use them to create life, I will never need them all and after she has worked so tirelessly to produce these little specks of life, I at least want them to have the opportunity to be useful, rather than falling away every month.

Choice is the thing that makes us human, it is the very core of our being and the very thing that allows us to be who we are. I want to give you the option to have a choice, to be able to say yes, we can try and maybe one month, when you pee on that stick, it will say positive. That little choice that I made has given you life. I don’t have money, I don’t have a lot of time, but I have this and if just one person is successful in using my choice for their family, then I have done my job.”


“I want to make a difference”

From one of our awesome Nurture egg donors. We are so proud and humbled to be associated with these amazing women.

“I may not be famous, I won’t cure cancer or bring world peace. When I’m gone history won’t remember me, but I want to make a difference to know I changed someone’s life in such a big way, even if the rest of the world doesn’t know. I’ll know I’ve done something incredible and I can’t help but be proud and smile when I think about it.”

“Thank you Nurture for helping me to have a purpose in life”

dc7473fa7455ae701da53e101fa42811We remain fascinated by the generosity of heart and the compassion of our egg donors. Our awesome egg donor had this to say..

“Another donation has come and gone. I just can’t believe that I’ve taken my time and given my heart to help another couple reach their dream. Today I went to get my eggs retrieved and they managed to get 20 eggs! I am really humbled by this. Thank you Nurture for helping me to have a purpose in life”.

Thank you gorgeous egg donor, it is our pleasure to work with you xx

“Thank you for your utterly selfless and compassionate gift. You are a precious soul”.

heartAn excerpt from a special egg donor recipient’s note to her phenomenal egg donor:

“I know that as parents one day, we will make mistakes, but we will protect, love and nurture our child forever. Having struggled for so long, my husband and I will never take the miracle of a child for granted. I don’t think a day will go past when we don’t say thank-you for your utterly selfless and compassionate gift.  You are a precious soul.

Lastly, I want to let you know that your profile struck a chord with me. I felt that we could easily have been great friends. I love your spunk, determination and sense of fun.  And we share a common dislike of cow-tongue on the menu :-).

We hope that this process is a comfortable one for you, and that you are supported, but never pressured.

With love and gratitude”



“I am simply the Fairy Godmother in this situation”

How privileged are we to have amazing women like this on our egg donor program.  We just love this egg donor’s message to her prospective recipient:

“I hope that I am able to help you achieve what you’ve been desiring.

I hope fate steps in and allows your dreams to come true.

I hope that you will be able to see this grow into everything you have wished for, and more.

I hope that you know that this is yours – all yours – and I am simply the Fairy Godmother in this situation.

I hope you never forget that”


“I want to help you through this in any way that I can”

“Hello Mommy and Daddy-to-be!

 I just wanted to write you something to let you know that I am just as excited as you to get everything started!  I’m sure that you’re nervous as well and I want to let you know that I’m in this with you. You’re definitely not doing this alone.

 After I received the email stating that you’ve done me the huge honour of asking me to become your donor, I smiled all day and immediately sent an email to my Mom to inform her that I’ve been chosen. Then I told 3 of my closest friends, and whomever sat close enough to listen! After explaining the entire process to them and seeing their, at times horrified faces (the guys were freaked out, the girls – not so much), I had to answer the same question over and over…….


 Simple. Because I can. But it goes deeper than that. Because I want to help. Because saying that “I know how you feel” and “I’m here for you” doesn’t always cut it. Because no one knows what you guys went through, and how hard your personal journey has been. Also, it’s who I am. I want to be by your side (in this case, figuratively) and to help you through this in any way that I can.  If that means telling my boss that I need to visit a specialist every now and then, telling them that I need specialised medical care so that I can get two weeks of sick leave, injecting myself with hormones, going on a hormonal rampage in the chocolate isle in Pick’nPay if necessary, and allowing strange men (a.k.a, doctors) to see my vajayjay, then so be it!

 Because it really is the least that I can do.

 I’m being a good girl, promise. I’ve already gotten myself into the habit of drinking my vitamins, and I’m eating all the fruits that I can find (my new smoothie machine is helping a lot on that score!).  I am still working on the tons of water thing, but I’m usually so thirsty after bootcamp that it shouldn’t be an issue.

Overall, when things get tough, remember that I’m thinking of you.

All my love (and lots of blessings).


“I have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡”

As she’s reached her limit and her journey as an egg donor comes to an end, our amazing donor has this say:

“Wow I can not explain the feeling I have right now, that is so amazing! Thank you for this life changing experience, it really has changed my life and taught me so much about myself as a person and how it takes nothing, absolutely nothing to change someone’s world! I am in absolute awe today and have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡

Thank you!”

As sad as we are to “lose” her – we cannot thank her enough for the amazing gifts she have given to our Nurture recipients.


“You have given us the most amazing gift in the world”

We received the most beautiful email from one of our amazing egg donor recipients.  We are honoured to have been able to help and to pass this message onto her egg donor. We are keeping everything crossed for them!

valentines-day-heart“To our beautiful Donor,

No matter how many times I try write a letter to you , I will never truly be able to express all my thoughts and feelings.

My hubby and I would just like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done for us.

There is not a day that didn’t go by that I didn’t think about you or wonder if you are doing ok. You have been by far the bravest person throughout this process and I will forever be grateful to you. You have given us the most amazing gift in the world and I thank God every day for you. I am overwhelmed by how there are such amazing people like you out there, and although we will never meet I am happy I found you.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your life to help me make my dream come true. I know I still have a long road ahead but you have done so amazingly well in starting my journey. On Tuesday the 14th you were the only person in my prayers and thoughts. I hope all is going well and just know that we are feeling incredibly blessed and thankful for your gift to us.

Lots and lots of love Us xxx”

“Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them”

4fdfc2a9b00dd7bb8c7e3a7b21ea89e3Another positive pregnancy result and our special egg donor had this to say:

“Wow! I am so thrilled and crying tears of joy, that is absolutely wonderful news. I’ve kept them in prayer since my donation. Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them. Please congratulate them for me and I wish my Angel recipient well over her pregnancy and for the future ahead. Parenthood will bring them a lifetime of joy.

Children bring happiness and blessings into families, and for me to have given her a little ‘push start’ to becoming a mother has just fulfilled my purpose “Helping Others”.

A very big thank you to the entire Nurture Team as well as the Dr’s and staff of Cape Fertility Clinic.

Hugs n Kisses from a very happy Nurture Donor xx”
