Becoming an Egg Donor

Donors The first and most important step to becoming an egg donor, either with us or with another agency, is to determine if becoming an egg donor is right for you. We have strived to provide a very detailed overview of the egg donation process on this website. For example if you want a general overview of the process check out our page on the Donation Process or you could also check out our Donor FAQs Page. In addition, the general resource section provides important links to websites like the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the New York State Department of Health where you can find out more about what it means to donate and be an egg donor. I also discuss first-hand (BFF to BFF) what it feels like to go through an egg donation cycle, as I went through seven (7) of them while trying to conceive my children through In Vitro Fertilization. You automatically receive a free copy of my book, The Infertility Survival Handbook when you are accepted into our donor program.

Although there are guidelines that we must follow when accepting a donor into our program (see the Donor FAQs Page for more information), we are not your typical agency. We aren’t just looking for women to put in our database and provide no service to you other than to match you with a recipient parent. We, on the other hand, are looking at you as a whole and unique person and we present you to the recipient parent in a different way than most other agencies as well. We want to highlight who you are as human being not present you as piece of paper with your vital statistics and a picture. We will work together to create a unique Donor Presentation Profile Book™ which (we hope) will set you apart from donors at other agencies! And that’s not all, either. Can you believe we would do even more than that for you?

Not only do I want to make that match for you but I want to make sure that your legal rights are protected during the process and that there is someone there to answer your questions and make sure that your needs as a donor are being met. Don’t have a companion for the day of the egg retrieval? Well then we will be there for you. If you don’t have someone to do an injection for you or are afraid to do them yourself, we will make sure that in your match a nurse (or other medical professional) will be required to do them for you. What you are doing is incredibly selfless and you should be treated with respect and honored for helping an infertile family realized their dream of having a baby, and not treated like just another woman in someone’s database.

Why should you choose us? You should choose The Stork Lawyer® Connection™ because we go the extra mile for you. It is my mission to make this process as rewarding, stress-free and fun (yes fun) as possible. You can find out about other services (like our mani/pedi-parties) on other pages throughout the website. And don’t forget that as part of the process of donating eggs you also will receive a free comprehensive medical examination; the recipient parents and the doctors need to know that you are healthy, so you get a full (free) examination as part of the process!

Only you can decide if this is a commitment you are ready, willing, and able to make. If you aren’t sure whether egg donation is right for you, please call us. We’d be happy to talk to you, connect you with an experienced donor “buddy”, or even a psychologist (at our expense) to help you resolve your concerns. That way, you hopefully will never second-guess your decision whether or not to participate as an egg donor.

This is a rewarding experience. While you may be considering doing this to help pay the bills or because you want to help someone (or a little of both), research says that most donors will tell you how happy they are that they donated their eggs. In my job as an attorney I have provided legal counsel to a lot of donors and almost all of them have told me that helping someone have a baby was the most gratifying thing they ever did and thought they would ever do in their lifetime; and that they never expected to feel so much joy from helping someone else. I have tremendous respect for what egg donors do. That is why I started this agency. Whether you are doing it to help pay your tuition or because you want to do something nice for someone, we’ll be there right next to you supporting you and making sure you aren’t just a number in a database.
