In the UK, it is possible to donate to someone that you know, which is referred to as a ‘known donor’ arrangement.
As part of a research project looking at the experiences of egg donors (the ‘EDNA’ study) De Montfort University, in collaboration with Pride Angel, Fertility Network UK, Donor Conception Network and the SEED Trust have produced this short guide for those thinking about known donation.
This resource shares the advice given by women who have acted as a known egg donor on a range of questions that this kind of donation raises, such as the relationships between the egg provider and recipient as well as any future offspring.
This new, free downloadable resource is intended to be of use for those considering providing eggs in a known arrangement. It may also be of interest to recipients of donor eggs and professionals who are supporting families using this arrangement.
