Your appointed Sunshine Support Assistant is well equipped to answer your many questions. She will contact you soon after you register with The Sunshine Egg Donor Program, getting to know more about you and where you are in your search for a donor. After you find a donor and all your required tests are done, you are ready to begin! While the fertility clinic screens your donor and starts your medical management, we stay in touch, maintaining open communication and a continuity of care.
For Intended Parents who will travel far from home to receive their special gift, we would like to ensure an enjoyable trip by offering travel information, accommodation to suit your needs, ways to keep costs down and general handy tips along the way. In-between clinic visits there will be time for sightseeing, a chance to nurture your inner-self or to simply relax in comfortable surroundings.

SASREG and South African Legislation
The Sunshine Egg Donor Program has signed the SASREG code of conduct which means we are fully compliant with the regulations and guidelines outlined in the Southern African Society of Reproductive Medicine and Gynecological Endoscopy Regulations (SASREG). http://www.fertilitysa.org.za
All our egg donations in South Africa are anonymous. No identifying information of recipient or donor may be revealed to either party. South African legislation prohibits any donor agency showing adult donor photos. Our comprehensive, detailed donor profiles are accompanied with baby and/or childhood photos of each donor. Confidentiality and anonymity of both the donors and the Intended Parents are guaranteed throughout.
The South African National Health Act (Act No. 61 of 2003) regulates the donation of gametes and the management of egg donation cycles. The accredited clinics strictly adhere to these regulations during their medical treatment.
Fees and Payment
Our basic admin fee (IVF rates and costs) is a very affordable once-off fee due when the donor agrees to donate. Additional travelling fees will be charged if the donor lives more than 1 hour away from the clinic. Upon registering you will be sent two emails. The first will give you your login details for the donor viewing pages. The second will contain all the information you need to know about choosing a donor, the process of egg donation in South Africa as well as our fees and payment methods.
Intended Parents will find The Sunshine Egg Donor Program's method of assistance effective and individualised, thereby easing pressure that could otherwise build during this process. We hope your egg donation experience with us marks the beginning of a lifetime of sweet memories, as your special dream is realised and you bring your little miracle (or two!) home.
