Egg Donor Information

Intended Parents Information

Nurture was founded in South Africa in 2008 and is South Africa’s 

most successful egg donor program. 

In 2012 we brought Nurture to the UK and successfully built Nurture UK’s reputation, working with initially one and now six reputable fertility clinics in London. Founded in 2008, it is run by Melany Bartok, Tertia Albertyn and their passionate, caring and experienced team.  We are here to ensure that your journey with us, either as a donor or intended parent is a positive and successful one.

What is Egg Donation?


Egg Donation is when a woman between the ages of 19 and 35 donates some of her eggs to help families who, for various reasons, can’t use their own eggs.

The egg donation does NOT affect the donor’s fertility, and this generous gift provides hope to families who long for a child.

Why YOU should work with Nurture UK

Between the lot of us, we have personally done over 40 IVFs of our own!!

We have helped over 1785 families with egg donation and supported over 3000 donors.

In Nurture UK, Lee-Ann heads up the team, with  Gabby coordinating all the UK donors, and Kirsty liaising with the recipients.

We know our stuff,

We have been around longer than most others and we are fanatically, madly passionate about our donors and the families receiving eggs.
