We’re honored to support the amazing women who are willing to donate their eggs to others. Your donation will ultimately help those who cannot achieve a family on their own, including women with poor egg quality, women who have undergone cancer treatments, same sex male couples, trans women and other members of the LGBTQ+ community. You have the ability to change people’s lives, and we will be with you every step of the way.
Donors must meet FDA and ASRM guidelines, and undergo a medical and psychological screening process with our team to ensure they’re ready. All ethnicities are welcome and encouraged to apply. Donors must be able to attend a schedule of medical appointments for monitoring during the donation process.
Once the online application is complete, qualified prospective egg donors will be scheduled for an initial fertility consult. During this appointment, you will have a transvaginal ultrasound to visualize your ovaries and to determine your “Antral Follicle Count” or the number of eggs we could expect to receive in a given cycle.
You will also complete bloodwork as well as have the opportunity to ask your physician any questions that you may have about the process. If we agree that moving forward as an egg donor is a good option for you, then we will schedule your egg donation process. NEST partners with Spring Fertility to provide clinical services.
Is egg donation safe?
Yes, complications are exceedingly rare and the hormones only function on your ovaries.
Does it hurt?
Common side effects include bloating, discomfort and minor fatigue – you can think about it like severe PMS symptoms.
Will it affect my future fertility?
No! Just like birth control pills don’t prolong your fertility, an egg retrieval will not take away from your fertility. We’re retrieving eggs that would have died off normally.

Help a family have a family, while planning for your own. Our EggShare Program lets eligible women donate eggs while freezing some to keep for their own future use through egg freezing. All costs are covered, including storage of your frozen eggs for three (3) years or until age 30 (whichever is longer).
Our goal is to make this process as easy and seamless as possible for you. We recognize the immense selflessness required in becoming an egg donor and we will be with you every step of the way – from our welcoming waiting rooms with snacks and sparkling water, to your dedicated care team throughout the process – we’re here for you.
We also firmly believe that everyone who wants a family deserves to have one, and one of our greatest joys is helping to match egg donors with intended parents.
