Bringing renewed hope to Australians and New Zealanders with South Africa’s foremost Egg Donation Program via our Aussie Package™
Gift ov life Australia is managed by Tami Sussman, Gift ov life’s founder in South Africa. We also have a former recipient of Gift ov life egg donation treatment who is our support person. As an Australian woman residing in Brisbane Australia, her and her husband sought egg donation IVF in South Africa, achieving a pregnancy and realised the hope that Gift ov life South Africa is able to restore to so many Australian and New Zealand couples needing donor IVF. Her name is Deb and she is available to potential recipients as a source of information, advice and assistance.
Gift ov life offers direct feedback from the experiences of Australian recipients that have returned to Australia pregnant after egg donation IVF in South Africa.

Unfortunately, and as you may be aware, egg donation agencies are not permitted to be registered as Australian businesses in Australia. It is for this reason that Gift ov life assists Australians, operating out of South Africa.
Gift ov life specialises in assisting New Zealanders and Australians that are in need of an egg donor for conception. Our Australian recipients select a South African Egg Donor angel from our large database of available donors and travel to South Africa for the egg donation procedure. Our South African donors do not travel to Australia, as this is not permitted according to South African guidelines.

- Up to 70% success rate
- Anonymous egg donation

Egg Donation in South Africa is legal, as is Gift ov life and our national egg donor program.
We offer an approved egg donation program and are referred to by all the leading fertility clinics in South Africa.
Furthermore egg donation in South Africa is anonymous and strictly confidential. The egg donor and recipient parents never meet, nor are names or details exchanged. There is no central donor registry available for public view.
Egg donation is managed with strict guidelines and protocol procedures contained in the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynecological Endoscopy Regulations (SASREG).
South Africa allows the transfer of one or two embryos to the recipients, provided that the recipient is capable of safely carrying twins.
Any additional embryos that result after IVF and the transfer of fresh embryos can be frozen in South Africa. Should you thereafter wish to use these embryos you can travel to South Africa again for additional transfers of embryo/s.
Should your male partner, in the case of recipient parents, not be able to travel with you for the procedure, sperm taken in Australia can be successfully cryogenically frozen and transferred to South Africa for the fertilisation process.
Fertility Clinics & Success rates in South Africa
The South African fertility clinics, which which we work, are world class, both in their facilities, expertise, technology and success rates. Located in first world cities and offering an IVF success rates of 65% (a confirmed heart beat by ultra sound at 8 weeks), South Africa has long been a popular choice for egg donation procedures.
This is compared to success rates for recipients aged 37 to 40 of 33%, and aged 40 to 42 at 20%.
Additional success rate statistics include:
According to a leading Johannesburg based fertility Clinic, the pregnancy rate per embryo transfer is *55%.
The cumulative pregnancy rate of patients after 3 cycles of egg donation reaches *92%.
The miscarriage rate is *15%. This contrasts with miscarriage rates of more than *50% in women conceiving with their own eggs, older than 42yrs, should they be fortunate enough to do so. * Pregnancy success rates vary depending on individual circumstances and expected success rates should be discussed with your clinic specialist.
We feel that an egg donor agency’s success rate carries little weight, as pregnancy depends on more variables than just the egg. The uterus and sperm are significant in whether a donor egg fertilises and then implants successfully. Having made this provision, Gift ov life’s success rate is 65% – A heartbeat at 6 weeks.
Gift ov life is one of the few egg donation agencies recommended by leading fertility clinics throughout South Africa.
Treatments available in South African fertility clinics include: Blastocyst Transfer, IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination), IVF (In vitro fertilization), ICSI (intracytoplasmic sperm injection), Donor Eggs (Frozen), Ovarian Tissue Freezing, Donor Embryos, PGD (Pre-Implantation Genetic Diagnosis), Donor Sperm, Electroejaculation, Sperm Aspiration (TESA)
