Two wonderful Journeys with this Company. Surrogacy is a very emotional journey and believe me, we had our ups and downs along the way. But now have two beautiful boys thanks to them and the others that were a part of our Journey.

Our journey to parenthood was changed dramatically on the day we met our beloved surrogate - and it's all thanks to Leia and her team in CFC.

The support they provided us as IPs since day one, in dramatic times and in happy and confusing moments during the pregnancy, is something we will forever cherish. Thank you for being so authentic, down to earth, and patient to our million questions. Thank you also for the guidance and love you give to our beautiful surrogate - we are so grateful.
Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful experience from start to finish and just welcomed our son late last week! The CFC team was professional throughout and really helped guide us step-by-step through what can be an overwhelming process. We had spent multiple years working with agencies in the US and did not have any success, but CFC was about to make our dream a reality. We have plans to work with CFC again this year on a 2nd journey and are excited to do so!

I had a wonderful experience with CFC. I matched with an amazing couple and developed a close friendship with them. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Having cfc with me throughout my entire journey was a huge help. Knowing I could reach out at anytime with any worries or questions that I had. Leia was a great sounding board and came up with great solutions. Looking forward to working with them again for journey #2

CFC and my journey with them are the reasons a family of brand new parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins exist. So much love, and CFC made it happen. It’s one of the greatest honours of my life to have been this family’s surrogate and it wouldn’t have been possible without Leia, Courtney, Tara, Carley, Estelle, Melissa, Nadine and the whole team I had the joy of working with along the way.

Egg Helpers Egg Donation FAQ

Basics

Egg donation is a form of assisted reproduction, where a woman donates some of her eggs to another woman so she may have a child. This is possible through advancements in reproductive technology using in-vitro fertilization (IVF). People who would not otherwise be able to have children can now do so through egg donation and IVF.

Our clients require the generosity of an egg donor to have a child for many reasons. Some reasons include:

  • Premature ovarian failure.
  • Diminished ovarian reserve.
  • Endometriosis, PCOS, or another gynecological issue.
  • Same-sex couples.
  • Unexplained infertility.
  • Repeated IVF failure using the mother’s own eggs.

Regardless of the specific reason, all our hopeful parents genuinely desire a child and are committed to sharing this journey with you.

In Canada, egg donation is an altruistic process. But that does not mean free, or that Intended Parents don’t need to cover your expenses. At Egg Helpers, we reimburse up to $6,000 for all donation expenses to ensure the process is comfortable for you.

There are no proven long-term risks from egg donation. Empirical studies have not demonstrated a definitive link between egg donation and infertility, cancer, or any other significant long-term health problems. However, it is always important to discuss any side effects with your doctor.

Yes, egg donors will sign a legal contract after being matched with a recipient (future parent). All legal fees are covered by the recipient.


Requirements

To become an egg donor, you must:

  • be between the ages of 19 and 32.
  • be physically healthy and a healthy weight.
  • not smoke or use recreational drugs.
  • have no personal or family history of genetic disorders such as bipolar, epilepsy, or schizophrenia.
  • be fully committed to the egg donation process

You will need psychological and medical screening to ensure egg donation is safe for you.

Yes, you can! By having your tubal ligation, you prevent your eggs from reaching your uterus. As an egg donor, your eggs will be retrieved prior to being released from the ovary.

Process

The first step is to complete our Egg Donor application. We’ll review your application and call you to discuss your medical history and next steps. Once your medical history is approved, we’ll reach out to request you have your counselling and bloodwork completed. This takes place at a fertility clinic. The counselling appointment is to ensure you have all your questions answered and that egg donation is a good fit for you. From there, we’ll ask you to complete a full medical screening.

The egg donation medical screening process involves several medical tests and procedures to help the physicians determine that you’re in good health and that it’s safe to proceed as an egg donor. Each physician may have a different protocol for screenings, but they perform any number of these tests:

  • blood work for various diseases
  • vaginal ultrasound
  • genetic screening
  • STD testing
  • drug/nicotine screening
  • a gynecological exam

Yes, the ½ day screening appointment and monitoring appointments are usually early in the morning, so please note that a flexible schedule is an asset, as there are typically between six and eight appointments. You will need to block an entire day for the egg retrieval.

You might! There are two kinds of egg donation: anonymous and known. Our team will speak with you during your intake about what type of egg donation will be right for you.

If you are completing an anonymous egg donation then you won’t be able to receive information about the recipient(s). But if you are completing a known egg donation than you would be able to receive information about the recipient(s).
