{guest post from Rikki Walsh at Sunshine Egg Donors}

So, you’ve decided to have a baby.

A HUGE decision in its own right.  Something there is no turning back from, but you want that baby, child, little person in your life.

If you are a couple, you start the conventional way – stop your pill, time your cycle and have at it. Month after month after month nothing happens, and a tiny bit of you dies each time you get a negative result.

Eventually you accept you need to talk to someone about it – find a solution, find out why it hasn’t happened ALREADY.

You make the nerve wracking appointment.

You both head off.  You do all your tests, and more tests, and then wait to see what happens. The news you never imagined you would hear arrives …….. Sorry, you have no more eggs, your reserves are gone.

Your only choice is to use an egg donor.

This news could arrive after many failed IVF cycles trying with your own eggs, or at the first test.  You could be 23 or you could be 43.

There is no way to know before you have tests and trials.

You take some time.

You accept that you need a donor, but what is your next steps?

Who do you talk to about it?

It’s never comes up in discussions with your friends or family  – what will they think, do you tell them?  So far all the “well meaning advise” you have been given is horrific and usually includes “just relax it will happen….”

You ask your Doctor and he recommends a few donor agencies, and that is where we step in.

With 10 personal donations under our own belts and having helped over a hundred couples through this process, we are well versed in the procedures to follow.

Sunshine Egg Donors are here to help with all the questions you may have.  Or if you just want to talk to someone who you will know understands what you are going through.

We have over 100 lovely active donors on our database.

We will work with you as long as it takes to find the perfect donor for you.

This is an intensely personal choice, much like choosing your partner, this is something that will be with you for the rest of your life.  At Sunshine Egg Donors we are PASSIONATE ABOUT MAKING FAMILIES.

To start with, we suggest you sit down with your partner and make a list of what is most important for you in a donor.  This could be looks, education, personality, or simply the fact she is a mom or has donated before, so you know “her” eggs work.

Perhaps a combination of them all.

There is a perfect donor out there for everyone, and we will help you to find her.  If you don’t know where to start, but just need to talk to someone to give you some guidance and assist you in taking the next step, please call us.

Together with your chosen clinic we will help to arrange a donor cycle in a time frame that suits you and go beyond that to make your already emotional journey easier.

This may means helping with accommodation near to your clinic, some relaxing tours or even acupuncture.

We keep you informed every step of the way what is happening with your donor and how she is doing on a physical and emotional level before and after egg retrieval.

Finally I will stalk you until I find out that you are pregnant and can shed a tear with you.  Then drink the glass of Champagne I am sure that you will be giving up for the next 9 months!

Thinking about being an egg donor?

At The Sunshine Agency they are passionate about creating families!

If you haven’t experienced infertility first hand, it is difficult to understand the unbearable heartache, anxiety and pain that it brings.

As a team they have thirteen collective years of experience working with egg donors and intended parents.

Sourcing first class donors for recipients and helping them through their process of egg donation, from when they start looking for an egg donor until they are successfully pregnant.

They pride themselves on an ethical and professional approach to egg donation whilst still maintaining a compassionate and personal touch.

By working with recognised SASREG accredited fertility clinics in South Africa, recipients and donors are assured of excellent and safe medical care from private clinics that deliver good success rates.

Whether you are considering becoming an egg donor or know someone who may be on fertility journey of their own, The Sunshine Agency offers personal, compassionate and on-going support.

Who makes a good egg donor?   A healthy young woman between the ages of 21 and 33 who has the time to commit to the egg donation process. Preferably a non-smoker or someone who smokes less than 10 per day.

Egg donors are always in short supply – and so too are surrogates. If something in you resonates with the idea of donating an egg or being a surrogate, give Rikki a call, even if it is just to chat and discuss what the options are.

Nice girl that Rikki!
