EP 146: Getting your head around using an egg donor and travelling to America to find one

Have you been told you need to consider an egg donor in order to get pregnant?

I met Sarah Esdaile at Fertility Fest 2018 when she took part in Fertility Fight club sharing her story and this is the video we shared via facebook live for you to check out. You can hear Sarah at approx 36 minutes.

Talking about egg donation

Sarah and I met in at Sarah’s hotel in Manchester (where I live and she had visited for work ) and found quite a lot of comedy in the decor which you will hear us chatting about and Sarah shared her fertility journey, from having failed fertility treatment to being told that she would have to use a donor. Sarah’s first attempt was with her sister’s egg and she describes the complexities of this decision and then the impact when it didn’t work. Sarah also spoke really honestly and frankly about how she had counseling from the first IVF appointment and how integral it was to her being able to deal with the emotional turmoil of what she was going through.

Shady Grove Fertility

Sarah had her treatment with Shady Grove Fertility and now works as a patient liaison, speaking to hundreds of women going through exactly what she did and helping them along the way. I think it’s fair to say that when you are trying to navigate your way through something like egg donation or sperm donation you really need to have access to people who really understand what it feels like which is why I was so keen for Sarah to share her story.

The ceiling in the hotel lobby, I had to share!
