Meet our Egg Donation Co-ordinator, Kate

 

Becoming a donor is a truly amazing thing to do, allowing another woman to experience the joy of having a family of their own.

“I am Kate, the Egg Donation Co-ordinator at Nurture Fertility in Nottingham. I started at Nurture four years ago as a receptionist when we were based at The Queens Medical Centre and have been in my current role for nearly two years.

My job role means that I get the pleasure of dealing with both ladies wanting to donate their eggs and recipient ladies in need of donor eggs. My role is very varied but I love all aspects especially the personal contact with my patients and donors I have recently undertaken a venepuncture course which will enable me to also take the bloods of my patients for that continued patient contact.

I have the very important job of matching my donors with their recipients, but I do take great pleasure in ensuring I can get as close a match as possible both with physical characteristics and traits. It is a very big decision to make in choosing a donor and I try to make the process as easy, smooth and exciting as possible.

Becoming a donor is a truly amazing thing to do, allowing another woman to experience the joy of having a family of their own. The egg donation process requires around 10 visits to the clinic for initial appointments and treatment. We currently have donors waiting to come through for treatment and so recipients potentially have a choice of donors. However, we welcome those who would like to become an egg donor and urge you to get in touch! If you are interested in becoming an egg donor with Nurture, please email me at donate@nurturefertility.co.uk or alternatively if you are in need of donor eggs and would like to discuss this more, call the unit on 0115 8961900.

Thank you and I look forward to potentially meeting you in the future!”
