Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) September 13, 2011 -- After recently expanding into the UK, The World Egg Bank along with the CARE Fertility Clinic has helped a recipient couple have a baby from donor eggs that were sent from the United States.
Since moving into the UK, The World Egg Bank has sent over 180 donor eggs to recipients throughout the UK. The first baby was born in May at a clinic in Nottingham and there have been six other confirmed pregnancies.
Diana Thomas, founder and CEO of The World Egg Bank said, "I wish I had this option available for me when I conceived my three children with donor eggs a decade ago. What a relief it would have been to have my pregnancy attempts simplified with such great potential for conception"
The World Egg Bank provides fertility services to women who need donated eggs to achieve pregnancy. By partnering with CARE Fertility Center in the United Kingdom, The World Egg Bank is providing easy, local access to donor eggs and eliminating the travel time and costs that are traditionally associated with the egg donation [http://www.theworldeggbank.com/for-donors.html] process.
"CARE has teamed up with The World Egg Bank to find an innovative way to reduce the long waiting times for donor eggs in the U.K.," a representative from CARE Fertility said. "The process of getting the eggs over seas involves importing them from donors sourced within the United States and preserving them by the ground breaking new technique of vitrification."
Because the UK waiting list for donor eggs can be in excess of 2 years, The World Egg Bank has seen a lot of interst in their services. They are currently partnered with several clinincs in the U.K. and plan to continue expansion throughout the region.
The World Egg Bank provides recipients with a fast turn around time. Once a donor has been accepted, it takes only about eight weeks for treatments to begin. Having access to the U.S. donors also provides recipients with a wider choice of donor eggs from a variety of different age groups and ethnicities.
With the help of new technology, The World Egg Bank has become an international leader in donor egg banking. Women now have a choice on how they would like to conceive. The technology used in egg vitrification gives this technique comparable success rates to those obtained in a conventional egg donation cycle.
