What Is an Egg Donor Profile?
If you are considering becoming an egg donor for Simple Donations, a subsidiary of Simple Surrogacy, congratulations, and thank you! You are about to give the gift of life to intended parents who long for a child. You are likely wondering about the egg donation process, part of which consists of the Egg Donor Profile. Just what exactly is an Egg Donor Profile?
Egg Donor Profiles on Simple Surrogacy
As one of the leading surrogacy agencies in the country, Simple Surrogacy values the privacy and anonymity of our egg donors. Egg donor profiles are all listed by number on Simple Surrogacy, in order to maintain anonymity. In an egg donor profile, you will provide photos of yourself and your family if you wish, including any children you might already have. Information that will be incorporated within your egg donor profile includes your age, height and weight, eye color, hair color and texture (both naturally), race, skin tone and tanning ability, body type, bust size (small, medium or large), shoe size, whether or not you have freckles, whether you have dimples, if you have had any plastic surgery, and which is your dominant hand. All of these specifications are important to intended parents who are looking for the perfect egg donor to help create their child.
Privacy of Egg Donor Profiles
If you read Simple Surrogacy’s blog, you will see some featured egg donor profiles that are viewable by the public. In order for intended parents to be able to view all egg donor profiles, however, they must first register with Simple Donations, a subsidiary of our surrogacy agency. When they do so, they will specify any qualities they are looking for in a prospective egg donor. They must also agree to not try to contact any egg donors without the approval of Simple Donations and not to try to identify any of the egg donors they view by information contained within the profiles. This maintains a necessary level of privacy for egg donors until they decide how much information they wish to share with intended parents. We at Simple Surrogacy/Simple Donations have taken the strictest measures to maintain the privacy of our surrogacy and egg donor community.
Anonymity of an Egg Donor
As an egg donor, you choose the level of privacy you wish to maintain. You may remain completely anonymous, be an open donor, or be a semi-open donor. Your egg donor profile will be listed by number only, with your stats and photo. If you choose to pursue some openness, you can receive information about the intended parents and they can receive information about you. An open donation allows for even more information to be shared between the donor and intended parents, as well as communication, if desired and only if both parties are comfortable with this arrangement. No matter what level of anonymity you choose, you, the egg donor, remain in control of it throughout the egg donation process.
Becoming an egg donor is one of the most generous, thoughtful things that you can do for intended parents. Thank you for considering becoming an egg donor with Simple Surrogacy. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions or concerns or to initiate the process of becoming an egg donor.
