We will ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire and provide photos to help us get a very clear understanding of the characteristics that are important to you in your egg donor search.
How long will my search take?
We will share egg donor profiles that fit your criteria with you as we find them and we are typically able to send clients a list of options in just a few days. A complete search will take about 1-2 weeks and we are generally able to send a total of about 15-40 profiles, depending on search criteria. We only accept a limited number of clients at a time so we can be sure we are able to devote the necessary attention to each and every client we assist. Contact our office to find out our availability for your egg donor search today!
What is included on an egg donor profile?
While each agency includes different information in their egg donor profiles, you can typically find a large amount information including a donor's health history, family history, educational background, physical characteristics, interests, etc. including a photo gallery with recent pictures of the donor and sometimes childhood photos as well. We will send you all the information and photos the agency includes on the profile including a spreadsheet with any additional information we find out from the agency that may not be listed on the profile. We like to collect as much information as possible on each donor that we send to you so you can make the best, most informed decision.
You give me the donor profiles... then what?
Once you have made your official egg donor selection, we will introduce you to the agency that represents your donor and you will go on to work with that agency independently.This allows you to maintain your anonymity and only share your information with the agency that represents the donor you ultimately select.
Why are your fees less than other search services?
That is easy - Because we want to save you money. Egg donation and IVF already costs a fortune. Finding your egg donor shouldn't have to. We are obsessed with keeping our expenses down to the bare minimum, which allows us to pass the savings along to our clients.
How is Family Match Consulting different from an egg donor agency?
Not every egg donor agency is going to have an egg donor for every client. That puts the huge burden of the search on the them. We have access to almost 100 egg donor agencies and over 10,000 available egg donors! We cast the largest net possible to find you the very best egg donor.
What is your experience?
Our founder Stephanie Levich founded and ran one of the top egg donor and surrogate agencies in the country. She has helped thousands of people become parents through egg donation and surrogacy by closely guiding them through the egg donor and surrogate selection process. As an adoptee, and also a mom through IVF, she has a unique blend of both personal and professional experience that she brings to each client she assists. While we have support staff that helps with various administration functions, Stephanie is the main point of contact for every single client we work with. What if the egg donor I select does not work out?
Each egg donor agency has a different policy. Though rare, some agencies will refund the fees you paid in full. Others will refund a portion, while some do not offer a refund but will try to find you another egg donor within their agency. If my first donor does not work out, will Family Match Consulting assist me with another search?
Certainly! If additional searches are needed, we are happy to conduct them with a 50% discount.
What if I decide not to select an egg donor you present to me? Though extremely rare, this is possible as we cannot guarantee that you will ultimately be comfortable with any of the egg donor candidates we present. We are happy to conduct additional searches for 50% off. We require a one to two month wait in between searches in order to allow time for donor's availability to change so we can provide you with a brand new list of profiles.
Will I receive a refund if I do not select one of the donors you present or the donor I select does not work out?
Family Match Consulting passionately devotes our time and resources to each search we conduct for our clients. Therefore, our fees are non-refundable. What will the total cost be for the egg donation and IVF process once I select my donor?
A complete list of estimated expenses can be found HERE. Do I need to choose a donor that lives locally to my doctor's office?
Not necessarily. Most egg donors are willing to travel as needed for the cycle and opening your search to other areas will give you many more donor options. You will be responsible for their travel fees so the overall cost is higher when an egg donor is required to travel. Do you work with international clients?
Absolutely! We have helped hundreds of international clients become parents through egg donation. We will walk you through the egg donation and egg donor selection process, step by step. Confidentiality is extremely important to me. Is my information private?
Absolutely. Confidentiality is something we take very seriously. We will never share your information until you give us permission to make the introduction to the egg donor agency you ultimately decide to work with. For clients who require an extra level of anonymity, our Fertility Vault program was created to accommodate you so that your information does not need to be shared with your egg donor agency, and you get the extra level of care and discretion that is needed. Contact our office for more information. All inquires are handled with the strictest of confidence.
