Who finds the donors and how?

down pointing arrow

Manor employs a team responsible for finding and evaluating potential donors. Donors that meet our strict standards and requirements go through extensive psychological evaluations. Those who pass all evaluations are accepted into the program and go through additional medical tests.

Do donors go through psychological evaluations?

down pointing arrow

Yes. We're incredibly proud of our in-depth evaluations. A psychologist meets with each potential donor. They make sure she fully understands the process and has considered all the emotional implications of a donation for her and her family. They also ensure she's participating voluntarily. All donors that participate in our Australian program also meet with an Australian psychologist to consider the local legislation and potential contact with the offspring born from the donation. Manor Medical will never accept a donor into the program unless we're sure she understands the consequences and gives informed consent.

Can we get a photo of the donor?

How old are donors at Manor Medical?

Women aged 21-31 can apply to the donor egg program.

Who makes sure donors are medically fit to donate eggs?

down pointing arrow

Once potential donors pass psychological evaluations, our team asks them to provide blood samples for both medical and genetic testing. This includes screening for infectious diseases and genetic carrier status. All results are reviewed by our Medical Directors who choose which donors are qualified to donate eggs in the Manor Medical program. On average, only 55% of potential donors are accepted.
