Egg Donor Stories
This popular storytelling series features real stories and candid perspectives by egg donors around the world.
Here's a bit about us.
Hi! Raquel here, one of the founding members of We are Egg Donors. That's me on the right, during my first (and only) egg donation, learning how to self-administer injections.
Anyway! I have a question for you.
Have you ever noticed how egg donor ads never feature pictures of needles or surgery?
Or how all the "testimonial" stories on their websites read more like marketing ad copy than what an authentic conversation you'd have with a good friend sounds like?
When I met Claire and Sierra -- the two other founding members of www.weareeggdonors.com -- we all agreed that egg donors need non-directive, neutral resources and a safe place to connect about all sides of egg donation.
So we created this group! Fast forward to today: we've grown into an international community of egg donors in more than 12 countries.
Our organization does many things: We are an international community of egg donors all over the world. We are a global advocacy movement and stigma-free zone. We have a mission to advocate for health initiatives that prioritize donor health. We collaborate with health professionals, researchers, and wonderful institutions like Our Bodies, Ourselves to advocate for better practices and more resources available to egg donors.
We also have a donation policy that does not accept funding from the fertility industry, IVF clinics, egg donor agencies, or any institution that recruits or profits from donor eggs. There are plenty of businesses and websites that already do that. We uphold this standard because our mission is so important to us. We are the only resource that is fully dedicated to the needs of egg donors.
You can read our story here. Or you can poke around our blog. Or you pop in and say hi in our private Facebook group (apply here!).
Either way, we're here for you. Welcome.
