“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.”

One of our biggest challenges is getting the message out to the fabulous, kind, generous, selfless, amazing and like-minded women out there… and YOU can help us to make a huge difference!  We need your assistance with recruiting more wonderful women just like yourself!  After all, no one knows better than you how truly rewarding it is to be a Nurture egg donor!

To kick start what could be life-changing for someone, please shout out to your friends, family members, colleagues, acquaintances, Facebook peeps and spread the word! You can do this easily by sharing this link

Lets think about it, if each of you were to tell a friend (or 10!), think how many people could be reached (their friends, friends of friends and even more friends) who might be willing to help someone else create the family they’ve struggled for and dream of.

So, you have a person in mind, how does it work ?

  1. She will need to meet Nurture’s basic requirements listed here
  2. She needs to complete Nurture’s online application found here
  3. She MUST reference YOU in the original application under the heading of “How did you hear about Nurture”
  4. Once she becomes an “ACTIVE” donor on Nurture’s database, we will pay you the referral donor bonus fee.  We are firm believers that sharing is caring after all!

If you’d like to be a guest blogger and share your donation journey through us, please let us know! We’d love to highlight your specific journey and perhaps you too will inspire others to support the potential recipients out there!

Should you or your referral have any questions about the process please get in touch with us at info@nurture.co.za

“All my stressing was for nothing”

f4a51b4536b087af3a55871cfb05379a“Never in my 21 years of life did i ever imagine myself willingly choose to go for an operation or procedure thingy.

When I first came across Nurture, I googled it and came across the website. I saw the R6000 compensation and naturally, as a student that caught my attention. I read up more and more about it and started to really consider becoming a donor. I chatted to friends and family, with many having negative things to say like “but it will be your child running around” but I had a broader mind then those few.

So off I went to Johannesburg (a City I had never been to) for my initial appointment, nervous as anything but I was welcomed with open arms. It started to feel so surreal and it was a bit overwhelming seeing all the women in the clinic, not your age, who are obviously the ones having problems conceiving.

Before I knew it, it was time for the actual donation process to start, and yet again I could not believe I voluntarily injected myself every day – a tiny painless prick.

Procedure day arrived and I was a wreck. I had never been under sedation, never been to an operating theatre and I never go to the Doctor unless I am dying! So there I was, I sat and waited for my turn to go in, heart racing and imaging how sh*t and painful I was going to feel afterwards.

Nonetheless, my gynae came in and chatted to me as he does, and well let us just say that was the best three hour nap I have ever had! I was out of the sedation after about 30 minutes, however I was so comfy and so relaxed I chose to sleep an extra two hours.

My oh my, I look back now and I can’t believe what a simple procedure that all was! All my stressing was for nothing, if only I had listened to the nurses in the first place! In the end I realised the R6000 compensation was nothing compared to the warm and fuzzy feeling you have afterwards, knowing that parents who are so desperate to have a family, might have a chance at it now”
