The Greatest Gift
A Truly Remarkable Gift!
You might be asking yourself: “Why should I consider Egg Donation?” For many aspiring parents, Egg Donation is the last hope they have for a baby. In fact, over 15% of couples in Canada who want children are not capable of conceiving on their own. You might be the answer to their dreams.
Most of the Intended Parents who come to us for Canadian Surrogacy or Egg Donation programs are extremely loving, compassionate people who desperately want to build a family. Here are some of the most common reasons Intended Parents come to Fertility Match for help and why you should consider helping them:
- Heterosexual couples who are otherwise healthy, but have tried everything to conceive on their own. They have experienced exhaustive testing, countless appointments and some very difficult periods of waiting to hear positive results that never come.
- Homosexual couples who want children, but the only way they can have a biological child is through Canadian Surrogacy or Egg Donation.
- Couples where the woman may have gone through premature ovarian failure from a devastating disease like cancer.
- Couples where the woman was born without ovaries and/or a uterus, and hence not able to have her own children.
- Single women who never gave up on their dreams of having a child even if they did not meet a partner in time to have their own biological child.
All of these intended parents have one very important thing in common: they want to have a family more than anything. The gift of Egg Donation can turn their dream of having a family into a reality.
We truly appreciate you considering giving this amazing gift to these aspiring families. At Fertility Match, we respect each and every person’s unique concerns, challenges and questions and will help through your decision of Egg Donation.
