Nurture UKEgg Donation Agency
Why be an Egg Donor?
By becoming an egg donor, you are doing one of the most important, selfless things humanly possible.
You are helping other people have the child they have longed for.
Why do families need eggs?
There are many reasons, sometimes the recipient mother doesn’t have eggs or her own, sometimes there are genetic diseases that the mother doesn’t want to pass on to her children, sometimes the mother has had cancer and chemo has damaged her eggs.
Whatever the reason, many of the families who come to NurtureUK for help have had a terrifying, exhausting and emotional journey to get here. They see the NurtureUK donors for who they really are selfless, brave & incredibly kind people who are willing to offer hope to a stranger.
A few words from one of our awe-inspiring donors.
“Dearest Melany, I just wanted to say Thank You for all the effort you put into making my donation process a success. For always checking up on me, making sure everything was okay…Thank You!
I really had an amazing experience. What Nurture does is really magnificent…was glad to assist in making a difference in someone else’s life.”
How does Egg Donation work?
The first step to becoming a NurtureUK egg donor is to complete an initial online application.
You can do this by clicking here:
Become an Egg Donor
If you do meet the initial criteria you go on to complete a more detailed application. The application asks for information on your family health history, interests, education, toddler photographs, employment, and fertility information. We protect your identity throughout the process.
Once we have all your information, a NurtureUK team member will contact you for a
1 – on 1 interview
NurtureUK interviews all our donors before we accept them on to our program.
The purpose of the interview is to ensure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision to become one of our committed fabulous egg donors.
Once you are selected to donate the NurtureUK team will support and guide you every step of the way.

Egg Donor Compensation
We know that our egg donors want to donate their eggs because they care about their fellow humans because they want to help out because they might know someone who struggled to have a child and they have seen the heartache it causes.
But we also know how much time and effort it takes to be an egg donor which is why NurtureUK compensates our donors for their time, travel and commitment with £750 on the day of egg retrieval.
Quick Donor Checklist
Now that you have more information about donating your eggs, we’d suggest you do a quick check to see if you qualify to become an egg donor.

“From that first email saying ‘You have been chosen as a donor’, to the last nervous moments in theatre when the doctor said ‘You’re going to feel a little light-headed, but you won’t remember a thing’, my journey with Nurture has been nothing short of fabulous.
The whole process seemed to fly by so quickly. Once the paperwork was sorted out and the initial appointments with the doctors were done, there was no looking back – I was on my way to changing someone’s life forever.
The injections initially seemed so daunting, but after the first one, I knew I would be just fine. The next two weeks of doctors’ appointments, healthy eating (a little insanity on my part in trying to produce the perfect egg), and injections went well.
On that Monday morning, after getting stuck in traffic and getting lost a bit because of nerves, I got to the hospital to the friendly staff who reassured me that everything was fine and I began to relax. I wish I could have watched the actual retrieval, that’s how excited I was about doing this, but the doctor knows best…so sedation it was. After an hour (I’m guessing), I woke up to a little pain and discomfort, but it was done. After a few days of bed rest and light activity, my journey as a donor had ended.
I hope the family who received my eggs got their happy ending!”
