Allowing Altrui to help you find an egg donor means that you can undergo your treatment at a clinic of your choice right here in the UK. As well as being a more convenient and cost-effective process, it will also give you the confidence knowing you will receive ongoing care from a team you know, your egg donor has been through fully regulated screening, and you will benefit from the full protection of UK law.
As Alison, the founder of Altrui, says:
“If I needed donated eggs I know that I would be very fussy about where I went for help and who I trusted to help me. I would have a myriad of questions and would want to be assured that whomever I was dealing with really knew what they were talking about and had the knowledge and experience to do things properly.
Although I admit that primarily I would be looking for a donor who was a great match with me and with whom I felt a connection, I would also be concerned that the donor was being well looked after and cared for and really appreciated for her extraordinary generosity in making such an amazing gesture. I would want to feel that the people I was turning to for help cared enough to get it right for me.
In starting Altrui, that is exactly what I have set out to provide. My aim at all times is to offer exactly what I would want if I was in your position.”
