"Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them"

red hearts intertwinedAnother positive pregnancy result and our special egg donor had this to say:

“Wow! I am so thrilled and crying tears of joy, that is absolutely wonderful news. I’ve kept them in prayer since my donation. Words can’t explain how amazing it feels to have helped them. Please congratulate them for me and I wish my Angel recipient well over her pregnancy and for the future ahead. Parenthood will bring them a lifetime of joy.

Children bring happiness and blessings into families, and for me to have given her a little ‘push start’ to becoming a mother has just fulfilled my purpose “Helping Others”.

A very big thank you to the entire Nurture Team as well as the Dr’s and staff of Cape Fertility Clinic.

Hugs n Kisses from a very happy Nurture Donor xx”

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give”

Yesterday I went for my egg retrieval procedure, and it really wasn’t too bad! A bit of pain but nothing that a warm bottle couldn’t fix!

After the whole procedure I think it finally hit me, what I’m actually doing. That was the 2nd proudest moment of my life (1st was the birth of my own child). Realising that I’m actually helping someone conceive a precious baby, a little angel, helping someone to give life is the best feeling ever!

TOL2 copyI also received a gift from “my couple”, a necklace with a tree on it, A TREE OF LIFE. Knowing that I’m helping them build their tree of life is sooooo precious to me, something I will forever treasure around my neck.  Its so special and I really do hope that all of this works out for the special couple.TOL2 TOL2

Thank you guys for everything you do, Nurture and Vitalab are truly so special.  Thank you to Anne too from Vitalab, she helped me and guided me through everything , you guys are definitely blessed.

Thank you for the support and love, I will definitely do it all over again!

This quote I feel is so true “We make a living by what we get, but we make a Life by what we Give

Inspirational Egg Donor feedback

wses068011On checking in with a egg donor following her recent donation..

“I am completely recovered. Following the egg retrieval I learned that my son received a full scholarship to one of the top high schools here in Cape Town for Grade 8.

Being an egg donor for Nurture has blessed me beyond what I ever could have imagined. I am excited and looking forward to my beautiful recipient’s results. I think about them everyday :-)”

The elated new Mother

“Hi Nurture,

Our beautiful bundle of joy was born on February 2nd. Thank you for your support and for helping me find the perfect donor. I now have my perfect baby. The joy I feel is beyond description.

Please continue helping bring hope to the many couples out there that are yearning for babies. You guys are awesome!

To Our Donor:

“I don’t know how to thank you enough for what you’ve done, words fail me. Your selfless act has brought us immense happiness. Please find time to read Numbers 6:24-26.”

Forever grateful”

Her incredible Egg Donor’s response:

Oh my word Mel !! Thank you so very much! You have absolutely no idea what this update means to me.

You know when I got that first update from you to tell me my recipient was pregnant, I thought that was the best news ever,  but now that she got the wonderful opportunity to experience childbirth, I think this update deserves to take first place as the best news ever! I’m so glad, I’m crying and I don’t even know how to thank you enough.

The Nurture team are really a group of remarkable women and yes I think you, the donors and recipients all deserve front row seats in heaven. You really are very good at what you’re doing and wherever I go, I tell people about egg donation and Nurture. I hope you get more wonderful donors to help create more beautiful families.

When I was busy with my first donation, I was busy with one of the most important exams of my life. I missed one subject because I travelled too far and didn’t make it back in time to the exam centre, they wouldn’t allow me to rewrite the subject, not even with a Doctor’s certificate.  However, when people ask me if I regret doing it, I say NO with much pride in my heart. I’m just so very glad that I was able to help create a miracle. I’ve made two people very very proud and happy parents. If I could do this all over again, I wouldn’t think twice”

To my recipient:

“I’m so happy for you and I’m so glad you chose me as your donor. I know you will take very good care of the little one, you really deserve to be parents.

I am the one who should be forever grateful. Thank you for blessing me with that wonderful scripture.

Xxx”

"I can say one day I made a difference"

“Today’s scan went well. I’m ready and excited for the egg retrieval.  I can’t believe how quickly it went.  In November I couldn’t believe that I was matched again, and here I am anxiously waiting to make a deserving couple’s dream of having a child come true. What an amazing feeling it is, and I can say one day I made a difference!
Egg donation is by far the greatest gift I could ever give to another woman in her quest to become a mom. The wonderful waves of emotion that I have experienced on this journey will last me a life time. I can’t thank Nurture and Cape Fertility Clinic enough for making this possible. I have finally found my purpose. Thank you xxxx”

“I am so glad that everything went well, and I’m hopeful that my egg donor recipients will have the baby/babies they’ve always wanted. Please convey my best wishes to them and also thank them for the gift they left for me…it is so thoughtful and much appreciated.
 I am also sad that today was my last egg donation,  it was truly an amazing journey – from start to finish.
 It was such a privilege to have worked with Nurture and Cape Fertility Clinic (CFC).  It’s been really comforting to have you and your support every step of the way, with every donation.
Melany, thank you so much for everything. I am so blessed to have met you and “worked” with you. I have truly found a friend in you. Like you said, I will always be a part of Nurture and Nurture of me.
Keep up the amazing work you do by making dreams come true.
I will always love you and will never ever forget you”.kiss.jpg

Welcome to 2015 – Make This YOUR Year

The New Year brings with it new opportunities and possibilities and for many, a sense of renewed hope to achieve their dream of a family. For those struggling with infertility, the start of a year can come with mixed feelings. The holiday season can be a harsh reminder of the lack of a child in the family. For many women, a new year also means a year older, that biological clock is ticking away and the pressure to conceive soon is heightened.

Now that the year is well on the way, although not easy, it’s time to put the disappointments of the past aside and focus on your future journey of creating your family via egg donation. With an egg donor’s precious gift, you could be pregnant within three months and well on your way to parenthood!

The fabulous Nurture team have first hand experience and a very real understanding of infertility. We know that it can be hard to know where to start and whom to trust when it takes more than two to create a family.

Choosing an egg donor is a very personal decision. With physical attributes, character traits, a sound family history and optimal fertility health aside, you as the intended parent are looking for the perfect “fit” for your family. Finding your perfect donor is crucial to you feeling ready to take the next steps and begin the process of creating your family via egg donation. With 7 years experience in the egg donation field and over 160 donors available immediately, Nurture will help you do that.

At Nurture, helping you realise your dream of a family is our passion – we connect your chosen egg donor and if required, you with the clinic that is right for you and your family. We offer support and guidance throughout every step of your egg donation journey.

Welcome to 2015 –new beginnings and here’s hoping, a baby-filled one too!

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!

Thumbs up“All went well, the Dr said he got 13 big, beautiful eggs.

 WOW!!! I can’t believe my second egg donation is done and dusted and I got the opportunity to be in a position to help as a donor again!

Not only is it the best feeling in the world, but the Nurture team are amazing!  My health and safety was top priority to them.  Mel was supportive during the entire process, which I am so grateful for.  Nurture and the entire CFC team of staff are so professional and friendly.

Not everyone understands what being an egg donor is all about, it’s not just taking a bunch of pills and injections, you are helping someone/a couple become a family.   The entire process is humbling and to have the opportunity to help someone in need is heart-warming.

I’m looking forward to being an egg donor again in the future.

To my recipient – may this be the start of an amazing journey, I hope that it is everything you hoped for – and lots more!”

It is really fulfilling to know that I have gifted two sets of parents with something that is truly priceless

4ecbdf33151304f43784881b9bf4dad0“Gerida was totally amazing (give that woman a Bells!) and spoilt me rotten with the support she gave me throughout each egg donation experience.  It is really fulfilling to know that I have gifted two sets of parents with something that is truly priceless.

With that being said, Nurture has been so good to me but I feel like I have done enough. Maybe in the future I will donate again but for now, and for the most part, I am done.

It was really such a blast and a truly unique experience. Thank you for giving me this unique platform to express my womanhood!”
