Whether you’re looking to egg donation as an empowering way to help you achieve your goals, or you’ve already completed your family and want to support others, here’s the 101 – with someone who’s been there.

  • How many times you can donate
  • Risks and side effects
  • And everything else she wishes she’d known, before donating her eggs
