Why are these egg donor requirements necessary?
Our requirements for egg donors have been determined in order to protect the health of potential mothers and newborns. For example, if an egg donor is experiencing any reproductive disorders or abnormalities in their family history, then there is a risk of future complications during pregnancy, childbirth, and after for both mom and baby. Other requirements are more straightforward, such as that the egg donor be in good physical and mental health. If you have questions concerning the egg donor requirements above, please call (877) 375 – 8888.
