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.

The whole process was great and fitted into my life easily. The team at Altrui and the clinic were amazing and made me feel well looked after. I feel so privileged that I have had the opportunity to do this. The other great thing was how open and honest Altrui and the clinic have been about the process and the future of the eggs I have donated. I really feel part of something incredible and even though my part is now over, I still feel very looked after and informed.

If you are considering egg donation think about it first but also remember that you are giving a family something that they have wanted for years, something that doesn’t have a price on it, something that they will cherish every second of their lives, what an amazing journey.
Thank you!

Our son was born two days ago. He is absolutely perfect. We’ve been enjoying getting to know him and being a family. I can’t tell you how happy we are ;0) Thank you once again for all your help and especially to our donor – there is just no way to put how we feel into words.

Caroline - Egg Recipient

I have just successfully donated my first lot of eggs and found it to be a very rewarding experience and nowhere near as difficult as I first thought it would be. The worst parts are the taste of the nasal spray, but a sweet or drink sorts that out, and the injection which doesn’t really hurt that much – I found it was more in my head, the thought of doing it was a lot worse than the deed itself.

Jane - Egg Donor

Donating through Altrui was brilliant. The ladies are all so friendly and I felt like I could speak to them if I ever had a problem. They are forever telling me how wonderful I am for donating, but they definitely made it easier for me by being so supportive. I feel like I am able to ask them anything at anytime and they would be supportive and understanding.
