“Wow!!!!
From a blue Monday this certainly turned into a big suprise of a day.

The trembling of my heart and the mixed emotions I’m feeling inside can’t be a patch on what the expecting mother is feeling.

I’m so happy now I can’t stop smiling. It’s like finding out your best friend is pregnant. This is definitely worth all the prayers. I don’t think there is a better experience than feeling a little someone grow inside you and becoming a parent. Since we were little girls we dreamed of becoming a mommy.

I’m just so happy this dream is finally coming true for this wonderful lady. This new mommy must be ready because their journey has just began. You’ll descover joy,  laughter and love at a completely new level. Especially love. May this bundle of joy change your life, only for the good.

Stay strong at the end it will be all worth it 🙂

Thank you for letting me be part of this wonderful news. Enjoy every moment and take lots of photos. I will do this all over again, just to know the joy it will bring to someone else. Love you and never lose faith ♡

Our first time egg donor shares her experience

images“I am a Nurture donor and completed my first donation on the 21st of October 2015. The experience for me was a great one and I wouldn’t mind donating again! From Gerida, who held my hand on the first day I walked into BioArt, to the clinic sisters who made sure I understood what needed to be done, how to take my medication and made
sure I was comfortable on the day of the aspiration too. I just want to say thank you to them and may they keep up the hard work, kindness and passion in which they do their jobs. My first time experience went smoother than I thought and was              very comfortable.
Thank you to everyone who played a part in making my visits to the clinic lovely and good luck to my recipient (I have my fingers crossed!)
Thank you all
xx”

“I really enjoyed this donation experience”

“The retrieval was great (18 eggs, again!). It was, by far my favourite aspiration to date. The Sandton Fertility Clinic staff are awesome.  Sister Iris is a superstar of great note and a super sweetie too!

I loved the baggie of goodies too! Thank you for the awesome opportunity to donate yet again. I really enjoyed this donation experience.

The Nurture team is awesome!

An egg donor’s message to potential donors

“I will always cherish the time I have spent with the ladies of Nurture, they treat me like a Queen. I have donated before and would do it again in a heart beat.  I always smile, knowing that I gave someone so much joy and happiness for a lifetime by donating.  I am happy and I know you will be happy after donating too”.hand copy 2

“Full of hope”

When asked why she’d like to donate, our beautiful “new” ‪‎egg donor‬ has this to say:
“I believe that if I can make a difference in even one person’s life in my time spent on earth, it would’ve been a life worth living. I cannot think of a more perfect way to make that difference than potentially giving the gift of life to a couple that are not able to conceive themselves.
Full of hope
xx”

Please give my love and very best wishes to my recipients…it’s been a long journey and I pray that they’ll get the baby/babies they long for so much.

This is a sad goodbye…once again. I wish you and the Nurture team a very successful and prosperous journey ahead.

Keep up the excellence! 🙂

A beautiful note from a recipient to her egg donor

thank you.jpeg copy“I have wanted to make contact with you for a long time, but I just haven’t been able to find the right words to convey what I feel in my heart. I think of you all the time. I wonder how your prince and princess are going. Whether you understand how much joy you have brought to the lives of your recipients. 

Our daughters are just beautiful. I look deep into their blue eyes and think of you. You said they would be perfect and they are…truly amazing. I love to hold them and play with their little fingers and toes. Pat their warm little heads and smell their baby skin. I still have to pinch myself that my dream has come true – twice.
After the tragedy of losing my children, I struggled on so many levels for years. Finally I have come out of that dark, empty place to a life that is rich in purpose and happiness. I can only sincerely thank you and the other amazing people who have made this a reality.
My sweet girls are very different. One has dark hair, the other light. In temperament one is feisty whilst her sister is laid back. One has a cry that sets off the neighbourhood dogs in the middle of the night, whilst the other snorts like a piglet. My eldest daughter just adores smothering them with sloppy kisses and cuddles. She wants more babies(!)
We are having our darlings baptised in a couple of weeks. It will be lovely to celebrate their precious lives with our family and friends. Being their mummy is such a privilege and I am loving every moment. Yes, even in the wee hours of the night, I really don’t mind. Please know that I am committed to being the best mummy I can be. I might not always get it right, but I will keep trying and learn from my mistakes. Above all I will love, cherish and support them – always.
I wish you an abundant life, filled with peace, joy and love. Your incredible gift has transformed my life and I cannot thank you enough.
All my love

"I'm helping a couple start a family"

Tammuz ad copy“I’m back from the egg retrieval and feel great, a little bit of an uncomfortable tummy but otherwise I’m happy… they managed to retrieve 31 eggs!

 I will definitely want to do this all again as it’s such a wonderful feeling knowing that for a few days of discomfort, and one small procedure I’m helping a couple start a family.

 I am now holding thumbs that the recipient falls pregnant and they can start their exciting journey.

 Thank you to you and your special Nurture team, you all have been so supportive. It’s such a pleasure to be apart of your agency! Definitely made my process easy!”

"I have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡"

As she’s reached her limit and her journey as an egg donor comes to an end, our amazing donor has this say:

“Wow I can not explain the feeling I have right now, that is so amazing! Thank you for this life changing experience, it really has changed my life and taught me so much about myself as a person and how it takes nothing, absolutely nothing to change someone’s world! I am in absolute awe today and have a great feeling of peace ♡♡♡

Thank you!”

As sad as we are to “lose” her – we cannot thank her enough for the amazing gifts she have given to our Nurture recipients.
