Although we have already blogged about the laws surrounding egg donation in South Africa before, we feel that it is very important to reiterate how important this is, for anyone considering donating their eggs.
Egg donation can be a very daunting thought at first, but we at DESA dedicate ourselves to educating and assisting prospective donors, such as yourselves, to understand the processes involved; the importance, not only of donating eggs, but also the importance of understanding the law surrounding egg donation. Once you know these facts; egg donation will no longer be daunting to you.
At DESA we are 100% committed to you, and we appreciate and follow South African laws because they underpin the spirit of egg donation which is all about togetherness, empowerment, and hope.
South Africa has amongst the best egg donation laws in the world! South African egg donation is governed by the National Health Act (2003) and as mentioned before, these laws protect both the donor and the recipient.
The Act itself can be an exhausting document to get through with all the fine print, and can in turn be a little intimidating, so we have outlined four of the most important points that you need to be aware of, when it comes to making the decision to donate your eggs!
The National Health Act (2003) states that a maximum of six live births are permitted from one donor. This is why at DESA, finding more wonderful egg donor STARS like yourself is so important for our prospective recipient families who cannot conceive naturally.
Egg donation is a true gift of life and an altruistic act. We are always in search of wonderful egg donor stars to join our DESA family, so if you feel you are ready to give a wonderful family the gift of life, please contact us here.
Love DESA x
