Story

The road to parenthood of Cristina, Boris and Martha, or Marcus and Dorothy were not a bed of roses. Over the years they were able to gain knowledge and establish many opinions about the world of fertility services.

“We met a number of doctors, travelled to several clinics in different countries, recognized many difficulties connected to egg donation.”

In order to help other patients – couples and singles, thinking of their situation and searching for a reliable place to start treatment – they have created EggDonationFriends.com.

The Beginning

A story like any other. They met at clinic’s corridor. Started talking. Then they phoned each other, sent e-mails, until they started meeting. And so it goes.

They have noticed that when you prepare yourself for this big step (IVF with donor eggs), you need a trustworthy source of information as well as assistance from other more experienced patients. They have focused on egg donation as they were convinced that it is a very delicate and complex topic. Especially, if you consider treatment in a foreign country. Then you really need to know everything about egg donation: you need access to various data about clinics, procedures, treatment conditions, prices, accommodations, etc.

They have searched through the web to find information, they got sick and tired spending hours and hours in order to find tips and hints they considered useful. … and they decided to change it.

EggDonationFriends.com was born

Mision

EggDonationFriends.com has come to life as a Friends to Friends Platform for patients from all over the world. Our mission is to inspire & to help you make clever decisions – especially in case you are considering a treatment abroad.

Friends are to inspire & to help you make a clever decisions!

We are aware – from patient’s perspective of our own – how difficult it may be to receive all information needed, how hard it is to handle unexpected situations and how upsetting unclear rules are — especially, if you cannot reach your clinic when in doubt. We have learnt much from our own experiences as well as received valuable feedback from hundreds of patients worldwide. This is how EggDonationFriends.com came into being with the supreme goal of supporting transparency.

 

Our Mission

EggDonationFriends.com has come to life as a platform for patients from all over the world. Its purpose is to assist them in making good decisions – especially in case they are considering a treatment abroad.

Inspired by the words of Dalai Lama, we believe that “a lack of transparency results in distrust and a deep sense of insecurity”, and we strive to change the attitude of medical centers when it comes to communicating with patients.

Our mission is to support the transparency of clinics’ standards and pricing policies as we believe it is vital for their credibility.
