Your Guide To Finding The Best Egg Donation Programme In South Africa

Please share this article


Infertility can be a challenging and emotional journey for anyone experiencing it. While egg donation agencies have become more prevalent in South Africa, choosing the right one for your needs requires more than just finding an accredited programme.


You need an agency that understands the complex emotions that come with infertility. Let’s look at a guide to choosing the best egg donation agency in South Africa for women seeking to receive a donated egg.

They understand your infertility journey

Even though almost 1 in 7 couples experience infertility, you aren’t just a number. Each person has their own unique journey to accept and process the challenging realisation.

Many egg donation agencies have opened their doors in South Africa, but choosing the best one comes down to emotional insight and empathy for your situation.

We understand the feelings of anger, despair, and disappointment all too well because we’ve been there too. Between our team at Nurture, we’ve had more than 40 IVFs, and we all share the personal experience of struggling to have a baby.

We’ve been where you are now, and we will hold your hand as we facilitate your happily ever after.

They are unapologetically ethical

Egg donation is legal and ethical in South Africa while tightly regulated to ensure donor, parental and the future child’s safety. The agency you choose must meet the strict guidelines of the South African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynaecological Endoscopy (SASREG) and have a track record of success in egg donation.

But we believe that’s the bare minimum.

To qualify as a reputable egg donor programme, we think an agency needs to go above and beyond the letter of the South African law on donating ova (also called oocytes). We believe the programme needs to prioritise the patient’s constant medical care, emotional support, and psychological well-being.

Equally as important is taking care of the donor, and ensuring they are equipped with every bit of information they need to make informed and responsible choices.

They are fully transparent about fees and financial policies

You can’t put a price on the love of a brand-new baby. But the medical procedures behind egg donation, fertilisation, and implantation can be a significant financial investment.

That’s why it’s essential to choose an agency that is transparent about its fees and financial policies. Look for an egg donation programme that offers clear pricing and billing policies.

Make sure to get clarity about cost breakdowns and ask about donor recruitment and selection, donor support, arranging donor travel and accommodation, recipient support, and liaising with your fertility clinic.

Nurture partners with experienced fertility specialists, counsellors, and support staff who understand your journey intimately. Together, we provide patients with the highest level of care throughout their fertility journey.

Nurture has a large pool of carefully screened and selected egg donors, ensuring that future parents have a range of suitable options. Let’s start a conversation about finding an egg donor with us.
