South Africa and Gift ov life as an egg donation destination and the benefits for UK Recipients
Egg donor Benefits
- 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.
- Recipients receive baby/toddler pictures of egg donors and can select a donor from over 200 available egg donors
- There is no waiting period for a donor of your choice.
- Donors are available to view online at www.giftovlife.com at no charge.
- Recipients are assisted with selecting a donor based on their looks, eye colour, hair colour, height, body frame, education and many other attributes.
- Children born as a result of egg donation are not entitled to know their genetic egg donor when they turn 18 or at any other age.
- We offer an approved egg donation program and are referred to by all the leading fertility clinics in South Africa.
- 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.
- PGD (Pre implantation genetic diagnosis) for sex selection is available, although not common, in South Africa.
