Become an egg donor to change someone’s life

Have you ever wondered about what it takes to become an egg donor, and the profound impact you could have on someone’s life? Maybe you’re in the midst of researching the topic already, or you’ve got a friend who has recently donated eggs and is making you curious about whether you could, too.

It’s a path that not only allows you to change lives but could also help you achieve your own dreams in ways you might never have imagined.

Meet Shelby, the extraordinary founder behind Cloud9 Conception. As a two-time egg donor herself, her journey is one of compassion and empowerment. As you delve into her experience, you’ll gain a deep understanding of why she chose to become an egg donor, and what the experience can feel like.

From the emotions, the anticipation, and the indescribable feeling that comes with the egg donation day itself – watch and learn how the egg donation path could lead you to the fulfilment of your own goals, too.

Why did you become an egg donor?

Shelby shares her reasons for donating her eggs.

“The decision came quite naturally to me. I was working at a clinic at the time and witnessing intended parents experiencing pregnancy because they had access to donor egg IVF treatment.

For me, a donation was a way to give back to a community that I cared deeply about and worked closely with.”

How does egg donation day feel?

Procedures aside, egg donation day is an incredible milestone for you as a donor.

“This is an awesome day for egg donors. You wake up from that procedure and oftentimes the physician will tell you how many eggs were retrieved.

It provides you a sense of fulfillment knowing that you put this much effort into a cycle and this is how many eggs your recipient will get to try to build their family.”

How can egg donation help you achieve your goals?

Shelby knows the benefits of egg donation firsthand.

“The main thing is the sense of fulfillment, and being able to give to your community and help someone achieve their dreams of parenthood – that feeling never goes away. I still think about my recipients every single day.

There’s also a monetary benefit. Whether you want to pay off college, settle into a home or travel the world, it’s a really good way to start all of those bucket list items.”

Egg donation is not just a singular event; it’s a culmination of your empathy, your selflessness, and your desire to make a meaningful impact.

The egg donation process certainly isn’t simple, and agreeing to egg donation means a lot of things – but as you consider this transformative path, know that it has the power to change lives, including your own. It’s a journey where dreams are not only realized but multiplied, where compassion knows no bounds, and where miracles are born.
