Jacci Lötter Donor Support & Administration
As a mother-in-waiting myself for many years, suffering repeated losses and finally having 2 rainbow baby sons, my own experience of infertility translates to a deep passion for helping people build their own families. I’ve documented my journey in various book collaborations, one of which has become an international best seller.
Coming from the Higher education industry, and being a certified life coach, I adore interacting with young adults – The perfect egg donor age! There is something about this age which instils hope in me for our future, because they are incredibly smart and driven.
I started my journey with Nurture 10 years ago in Donor support, and because of Nurture, I have my first son! I was blessed to also have a freebie son 5 years later, leaving this Mother’s heart full and my hands busy. I want my boys to learn from me that they can be anything they want to be when they grow up, but they will be kind.
I’m fierce about my role in Donor administration and support, as I know each potential donor provides hope for childless families, and can literally change someone’s whole world.
