International Benefits Program:

Nurture understands that travelling from abroad to a foreign country for medical treatment requires far greater coordination and administration, both from the patient’s side and the agency’s side.  As such International Patients are automatically enrolled in our International Benefits Program which includes the following:

  • Extended Booking Benefit: Nurture will extend the period in which we will keep international patient’s donors on hold from the normal 3-month limit to 4 months
  • Access to established relationships for additional travel services (accommodation etc)
  • No additional bank charges
  • Tax (VAT) exemption

Cost inclusive of:  Agency fee to use a donor from Nurture Egg Donor Program.  Costs are incurred in the recruitment, selection, screening, administration and ongoing support of donors both before and after the donation process, coordination of travel arrangements for donors and contract execution, as well as ongoing engagement, communication and coordination with the doctors & clinic coordinators during the donation.

PLEASE NOTE:  The Nurture agency fee excludes the donor compensation which is set at R7,000.  The donor fee should be included in the quote you received from your fertility clinic.

IVF Costs:

 (Paid to the fertility clinic)     

Between R50,000 and R90,000 (Clinic dependant)

Cost inclusive of:  Cost of psychological assessment and medical screening for donor, doctor appointments for both recipient and donor, scans, medication for both recipient and donor, laboratory fees, anaesthetist, other IVF costs, donor fee.

Please note that IVF costs are indicative costs only and these will vary from clinic to clinic, doctor to doctor.

Costs for “Out of Town” Donor Travel

If you select a donor that does not reside in the city in which the donation will take place, additional travel costs will apply.

It is less expensive for you to choose a donor that resides in the city in which you would like the medical treatment to take place.  However, sometimes our recipients fall in love with a donor who lives outside of the city where your chosen fertility clinic is situated.  Nurture is very experienced in managing all the travel and accommodation requirements ensuring that the donor arrives safely and as planned at your chosen fertility clinic.  Additional travel costs will apply as per the tables below.
