In this session, Nicky will talk about research she is currently undertaking which explores the experiences of egg donors within Europe. She will present some preliminary findings from the ‘EDNA’ study which aimed to understand the experiences of women donating eggs in the UK, Spain and Belgium. She will show how egg donation is differently organised in these countries and how this impacts on the experiences and motivations of women who donate under different sets of regulations. She will talk about some of the common experiences women described when they donated their eggs.
As a recipient of donated eggs I’ve often wondered about our egg donor, their motivations and how this may have been influenced by the regulations held in that country. Whilst this session can’t answer those questions specifically for me, what it can do is provide a better understanding of this important, but sometimes overlooked, perspective within donor conception.
As with all Paths to Parenthub webinars, members have the chance to shape the conversation by submitting your questions ahead of the webinar and on the night.
