I first heard about donating my eggs from a friend of mine, who told me a lot about it. Initially I think I did it just for the experience of it, but after my first donation it became a lot more than that for me.
I was adopted and my mother who adopted me can’t have children, and as much as I know she loves me, I know she would have loved to have had children of her own. For me it became more like a gift for women who were struggling to have children, like my mother did.
The first time I donated it was actually quite an emotional thing for me seeing the eggs during scans and knowing that I was giving a piece of my DNA away to someone else, I almost wanted to keep them for myself, as all of this actually made me feel quite broody.
I have donated 6 times, and all very quickly I guess I was very lucky in the sense that I was always a very reliable donor, 5 of my recipients fell pregnant and I always had lots of eggs. This all together was one of the most amazing things I think I have ever done for anyone and I am proud that I had the opportunity to do this, I just wish I could still do this for more women but unfortunately I am only allowed to donate 6 times. I wish all my recipients the best of luck with their amazing little gifts of life and I am very sure you will all be fantastic parents.
