15 Apr Easter Eggs
Spring is upon us and everywhere you look, you can see signs of new life. Flowers start blooming. Nests are being built. Since ancient times, spring and fertility have gone hand in hand. Celtic celebrations, like Beltane, and the Pagan goddess of spring, Ostara, were centered around this time of year when life would start anew. Even in present day, as we celebrate Easter, we see fertility symbols like rabbits and eggs everywhere! Rabbits and their tendency to reproduce rather copiously, especially in the springtime, and being biologically able to conceive while already pregnant, are seen as a prime example in nature of fertility at it’s finest. Likewise, the egg is seen as a rebirth of life and symbolizes the physical embodiment of fertility. We decorate them and gift them to loved ones to show how important the fertility they symbolize is to the continuation of life on earth.
So, what better time is there to talk about creating new lives through egg donation? One of the many services that Same Love Surrogacy provides is to help intended parents with finding egg donors. Although it is easy to guess the role of an egg donor in a surrogacy, not many people know what is involved in choosing to be one. We have a wide selection of donors already for our intended parents to find their right match and are always looking to add to that selection. Our agency carefully screens each donor to make sure that they will be a great fit for our intended parents. They also undergo psychological and medical testing to ensure a smooth process for everyone involved.
Once all this is done and a donor has been accepted, they start the process of legal documents to make sure everyone on the journey is protected. Then the donor begins medications to help with the egg retrieval process and the procedure is performed by an IVF clinic. Once the retrieval process is complete, the journey can end there for the donor, if they choose to be an anonymous donor, or they can choose an open donation which allows the donor and intended parents to establish a relationship. In addition, donors can choose to donate for other intended parents if they wish to.
Egg donors are a very important part for many surrogacy journeys. They allow those who are experiencing infertility or have a biological inability to produce eggs to still have a chance at bringing new life into the world. By donating eggs, they are literally providing fertility to those who do not have it.
If you are interested in becoming an egg donor, or you’re an Intended Parent hunting for eggs this Easter through Same Love Surrogacy, please take a look at our information pages and feel free to email or give us a call to start the process. What an amazing way to celebrate spring and its celebrations of fertility!
