The feeling of becoming a parent is by far the most magical and empowering moment of anyone’s life and easily taken for granted when you just simply fall pregnant and become a family just like nature intended, so to find out I was eligible to give this gift to somebody, albeit a perfect stranger, didn’t even take a second thought!

Michelle - Egg Donor

I would definitely recommend Altrui for anyone looking to do egg donation. I felt like they were there for me through every step of the way, even at my emotional times! But at the same time gave me the space to get through things if I needed to on my own. It was so easy to contact someone on the team and I always had a reply! Also expenses were convered on the same day of purchase, there was never a delay! Had a great experience with them!

Stacey - Egg Donor

Altrui, as last time, were fantastic at ensuring I was looked after and had someone at the end of the phone or email 24/7. Everyone from Altrui I had contact with were friendly and professional and great to communicate with. I would like to thank Alison for her continued support during my donation and for being there to sort any hiccups! Altrui are truly a great support network for all involved and I hope to keep in contact with you … until next time!

Sally - Egg Donor

Alison I can’t rate highly enough, but dealing with her yourself I hope you see the love she has inside to help others and support them – one truly amazing woman! With her knowledge, respect, support, kindness, answers, guidance (the list could go on) I feel at ease that I chose Altrui and to help that future family through them.

Natalie - Egg Donor

I highly recommend any woman considering becoming a donor to get in touch with Altrui. They give a clinical process the human touch and that means the world. I know already that I want to do this again one day and know who to contact to make sure it goes as well as this time. Just knowing that I’ve helped give someone the potential to carry a child of their own is all the thanks I need and I know 100% that this was the right thing to do.

Does gamete donation need an overhaul?

It is disappointing to read about the closure of the National Sperm Bank (NSB) as its success could have helped many more people have a family using UK-donated sperm (see BioNews 875). As has been well documented, in the past it has not been easy to recruit either sperm or egg donors in this country. […]
