Why I Became An Embryo Donor

Clara & David

Although we knew that IVF could be tough, we hadn’t expected it to be so emotionally gruelling. After three attempts and our IVF not working out we decided to go down the adoption route. Two years ago we adopted our son and daughter and we really couldn’t be happier. We now look back on our fertility treatment with very mixed feelings. If it had worked out for us we wouldn’t have had the amazing children we now have. We still have some embryos in the freezer and after some counselling sessions at the clinic and chatting through some of the practicalities with the NGDT we’ve decided to donate them – so much love and effort went into creating them that we’d like someone else to have the chance of using them.
