Welcome to Nurture Egg Donor Program

Nurture – South Africa’s most successful egg donation program is the creation of two fabulous South Africans (who just happen to be best friends too) who have experienced the heartbreak of infertility first hand – Melany as an egg donor, and Tertia as an infertility patient who went through 9 IVFs to achieve her dream. Assisted by a fabulous group of women who bring the total tally of personal IVFs to over 40, the gals at Nurture make a formidable team who combine the best of heart and soul to provide truly excellent service. In our 8 years of operation we have completed over 2000 (and counting) donor eggs cycles.

“In June 2010 we had the good fortune of contacting you for assistance with having our dream of being parents come true. You not only assisted us but you went beyond any expectation we could have had, I often referred to you as my angel, my miracle maker…….I cannot tell you how much you meant to me. To us you were more than a business transaction, you were a friend, you supported me on an emotional level you were an angel. I will always be grateful to you. You are a remarkable person and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for me.”

A global donor egg service with a local touch, we absolutely love what we do, and our passion shows through in everything about us. Known for our honest, no-nonsense approach, we pride ourselves on providing the best care and support for our egg donors and our intended parents, facilitating the process from application through to egg donation and beyond. In a nutshell, we care. We call. We write. We rock.

“Thanks again a million again for everything!! You made it work, from a very uncertain beginning, with lots of stones on the road, to a successful outcome. Nothing would have been possible without you and your stubborn attitude that you will support your client, despite all difficulties.  I do not have the words to thank you enough. You will always be in my heart.”

Based in Gauteng and Cape Town and operating country wide, we have a team of people who are able to meet with you in person to discuss how we can help you in getting pregnant or providing donor eggs – to achieve your ‘happily ever after’.


Nurture supports the egg donation guidelines and ethics outlined by the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynecological Endoscopy Regulations (SASREG).

Nurture shares SASREG’s concerns insofar as the health and safety of egg donors are concerned. Nurture is strongly against the actions of agencies and/or individuals who operate irresponsible cross-border egg donation programs.  Nurture adheres to the egg donation laws, regulations and guidelines provided by the The National Heath Act, as supported by the SASREG guidelines. Should you have any questions or concerns about cross-border egg donation, we refer you to SASREG’s website:  http://www.fertilitysa.org.za/EggDonation/index.asp

“Thank You Tertia, you are such a special person. Thank You for all the unconditional love and care. You are a Star in my life. You helped me to achieve my dream after 7 long years. I cannot put in words the way I feel.”
