A Little Help From Friends



April 19, 2017
In my previous post, I  wrote about my hope to help others navigate through the infertility process overseas. In furtherance of this goal, Jeff reached out to Egg Donation Friends, an organization we used in our search, to see if our story can help others. Through a series of emails we agreed to collaborate

Egg Donation Friends graciously wrote the following for the followers of Baby Blues:

Dear Friends,

We’re writing this letter to all women and men who dream about becoming a parent and are currently starting or are in the middle of their fertility journey.

We, EggDonationFriends, know that your dream can cost you a lot: physically, emotionally, socially and financially. The decision to use donor eggs may be hard but necessary. IVF egg donation treatment and preparations to that treatment can affect every aspect of your life, including career and holiday choices. We are aware of that, and we would like to tell you that you are not alone. We’re here for you.

Where can I seek support?

If you have already started IVF egg donation treatment with a clinic of your choice, we hope that your fertility doctor, nurses and patient service staff at the clinic are doing everything they can to make you feel positive and hopeful about the outcome of your IVF with donor eggs. However, if you feel the need to talk to other IVF patients, blogs like Baby Blues can help you feel you are not alone with your infertility issues. Try finding a local community support group, Facebook forum group or Twitter profile for IVF patients. Women on forums are truly supportive and understanding. Feeling you are not alone with your problem is crucial to your treatment.

I’m new to IVF. How to start?

If you or your partner have been diagnosed with some type of infertility recently and you have decided to have affordable egg donation abroad, first it is good to do your homework. EggDonationFriends recommend that you first read about IVF egg donation, about the preparations, the process itself, etc. There are websites which offer reliable and user-friendly Egg Donation Guide, best fertility clinics ranking, FAQ or Knowledge Base and they also regularly publish articles on breakthrough fertility research, IVF news, clinics and treatment they offer. The Internet can be a very good source of information if you choose the source wisely.

Did you know that some websites also feature complete and very detailed fertility clinics profiles? Now you can choose a clinic from the comfort of your own home and while you are having coffee with your partner. Some websites even offer their consultants’ help and suggest clinics which match your exact needs. You do not have to send countless inquiry e-mails or make endless international phone calls. The fertility clinics abroad know their patients’ needs and they usually initiate contact by e-mail or on the phone. All that for your peace of mind.

After you choose the clinic join a forum for fertility patients or subscribe to a few blogs like Baby Blues. You can get a lot of support and advice from women who are sharing the fertility journey with you. You can’t believe how many women are in the same circumstance as you. It is simply comforting to know that there are women out there who have to deal with similar issues and that you can exchange your experiences, those good ones and the bad ones, as well. You’re not alone. We’re here for you.

We wish you all the best in your “pilgrimage for pink or blue” and we hope your dreams of becoming a parent come true after egg donation abroad with EggDonationFriends Let’s meet on Facebook if you wish to tell us your fertility story – get in touch. Good luck!


Best regards,

Egg Donation Friends
