About Nurture UK

Meet The Team

“I’m really humbled by your team’s professionalism and the amount of support I received from you”

Melany Bartok

Global CEO

Melany is co-founder of Nurture Global and an ex-egg donor herself. To round it off – she underwent many IVF cycles to try and have a 2nd child. That said, she has one fiercely independent 7-year-old daughter who is almost as bossy as her mom.  Melany oversees and manages Nurture with a vision to make it the most professional, caring and reactive egg donor agency.
