August is Women’s Month in South Africa, which commemorates the 20 000 women
who marched to the Union Buildings in 1956 to protest the extension of Pass Laws to women.
Over the years, Women’s Month has grown to celebrate strong women from all walks of life – and we just so happen to think that our donors are some of the most amazing women of all!
If you’re still on the fence about donating, here are four reasons to consider donating.
You can (literally) make someone’s dream come true
For many of Nurture’s recipients, the decision to use donor eggs is another step in an often incredibly difficult journey to become a parent. By donating your healthy, beautiful eggs to a person who needs them, you could help them to achieve their dream of becoming a parent.
You will have the best ice-breakers
Trust us, we’ve used the “I’m an egg donor” fun fact more often than we can count! Apart from the fact that it’s a great conversation starter, it is also a way to start getting other people to think about issues around infertility and LGBTQ+ parenting (particularly if you have donated to a gay couple or a single gay parent), as well as conversations about reproductive health.
You learn AMAZING things about your own body
As you go through the egg donation process, you will get to learn some pretty mind-blowing stuff about your own body, your own fertility and your menstrual cycle. You will have access to some of the best doctors and nurses in the fertility industry, so ask EVERY question you can think of.
After doing a donor cycle, you’ll almost certainly never look at your body the same way.
You will feel like a superwoman
You have truly given one of the most generous gifts that a woman can give – and this is something for you to look back on with pride later in your life.
Without a doubt, you are someone’s superwoman.
