Will you know the identity of your egg share recipient?

No, you will not be told the identity of the woman to whom you donate your eggs and you will also remain anonymous to her, although she will receive some non-identifying information about you, such as a description of your physical characteristics. If you wish, you may be informed whether your recipient achieved a pregnancy, but no further information can be supplied. You will not be the legal parent of any child born as a result of eggs you have donated to another woman.

We keep safely protected records on all people donating and receiving eggs. At all times these records will be kept confidential and anonymous. In the future should any child born as a result of egg sharing (either the donor or recipient’s child) ask for identifying information this will not be given, however we will be able to confirm or deny any potential genetic relationship to a partner.
