Getting Egg Donation Right

For you as a donor, for you as a recipient and for your future child.

We specialise in finding, matching and looking after altruistic egg donors with one-to-one, anonymous donation. We are proud of the outstanding success rates with Altrui donors, from working in partnership with the best clinicians in this country.

Our whole ethos at Altrui is not just to get egg donation right for our donors and recipients but, most importantly, for any child, or children, that may be born as a result. Whilst we are fully focused on helping our recipients to get pregnant, we also look longer term to consider what is best for any future children, which is why we have taken such care in planning the way Altrui works and what makes us so different.

Hundreds of people have realised their hopes of starting, or completing, a family through us.

Using our extensive knowledge and understanding of all aspects of egg donation and IVF, we guide egg donors and recipients through the process, offering a very personal and unique service.  Our aim is to make the journey simple, safe and rewarding for the kind women who come forward to donate some of their eggs.

Our dedicated team is committed to making the egg donation process the very best experience for everyone. Your care is paramount at every step of the way, reflecting the Altrui ethos.

Everyone was so lovely, open and approachable that until they make the process even simpler there was very little I would change. I found the experience of being a donor so rewarding. I met lots of amazingly nice people and have just about conquered my fear of needles!

Kirsty - Egg Donor

My egg collection went very smoothly and, minus feeling a tad uncomfortable, I feel fine! Altrui have made me feel like a true super-hero. Thank you for being there 24/7 and of course this all goes to the hospital too! Even though my journey is now complete they have reassured me they will keep in contact. I have absolutely loved hearing that my couple are overwhelmed and cannot describe how grateful they are. Although it’s anonymous it feels like there are always personal touches. I can only hope that my eggs will now work their magic and I wish my recipients all the luck in the world.

Liz - Egg Donor

You are such a lovely team and always on the end of the phone! What amazing people you are to provide this service and to do it with such feeling! I couldn’t recommend you more! Thank you to all of you xxx

Charlotte - Egg Donor

The only thing I can say is ‘thank you’. But it makes me feel better to be able to tell others what Altrui does and has done to me. [Having] said that, I really hope there will be less and less need of support and lots and lots of new babies, including mine!

Sofia - Egg Recipient

Altrui have been there for me every step of the way. They always made me feel very special and comfortable every step of the way through my journey. Alison goes to such immense amounts of care when matching you up with your recipient that it can take a while but it’s very exciting waiting to hear!
