“I could not believe something I had done made someone else so incredibly happy”

4fdfc2a9b00dd7bb8c7e3a7b21ea89e3“I started out feeling all excited when I was chosen by the intended parents to become their egg donor. I went for my internal scan, my first ever which was quite scary with me not knowing what to expect. I got my injections and started the process.

Today I went in for my egg retrieval, I had mixed feelings of nervousness and excitement all in one!  When I came out of theatre the lovely clinic nurse came to see me and brought me a lovely gift, which I really did not expect from my recipient parents! As soon as I got it I burst into tears, I could not believe something I had done made someone else so incredibly happy! I felt overjoyed and so emotional, all I could think was “Wow! I just did something selfless for someone I do not know” and that made me feel proud and like a very special person.

I pray, hope and believe that the parents will get their miracle. I cannot thank them enough for picking me to be a part of the joyful journey that lies ahead of them and the many treasured memories!!

Good luck to them and thank you Nurture for doing such amazing, selfless work!!”

“I get to put a smile on someone else’s face”

“Today was the day my eggs were being retrieved and I woke up feeling vibrant and happy! Finally the day had arrived where I get to put a smile on someone else’s face, I am going to be part of the bigger picture and give someone else the chance to feel the joy of having a baby. 16 of my precious eggs were retrieved, I am holding thumbs that the couple are able to conceive.
Love
A grateful donor”
