I didn’t want to use an egg donor. But I did want a baby and that changed everything.
For my husband and I, we had no other options. It took me a week or more to manage the grief that my body did not have enough healthy eggs. It took another week for us to warm to the idea of egg donation. Our turning point was imagining a baby who would not genetically come from me but would be nourished by my body and bathed in my chemistry. I would be carrying and growing a baby.
The egg donor process is not one that you can chat with coworkers about or the lady behind you in the grocery store. It’s intense, it feels strange at first and is greatly misunderstood by many who know nothing about it but have strong opinions about it. The two coordinators who helped me through the process at Fairfax EggBank were incredibly valuable. They talk with families every day who choose egg donation as an option. And they talked to me. They didn’t think a single question was odd or unanswerable. They were kind and supportive. They felt like an extension of the support I was receiving from my fertility clinic.
And then…it happened. It worked. I was pregnant. I didn’t believe the pregnancy would continue, but with the egg donor, through Fairfax Egg Bank, I had a baby. She is now an 11-month-old, cute-as-a-button, giggly goose. I had read that many people don’t think about the egg donor. I do. Every day. It’s amazing. Through the “gift” of a stranger, I get to be a mother. I get to walk through the door and hear my sweet baby squeal while she wraps her chubby arms around my neck. Her smile lights up a room and our lives. I am blessed.
My husband and I are so very lucky to have found Fairfax EggBank. We had great success the first time around and decided to purchase more eggs from a different donor. We’re hoping for a great outcome round #2. Going through the process, we had the undivided attention of our coordinator. We’ve heard from friends whose experiences elsewhere weren’t all that positive, and I’m urging them to go and give Fairfax EggBank a shot! Best of luck to all of you who are in the process of building your families.
I purchased eggs from Fairfax EggBank back in April of this year. Though this journey has been grueling and emotional, working with Fairfax EggBank made the process so much easier. The entire infertility course was anything but easy… so naturally, when I got down to having to choose a donor, I thought it was going to be another difficult task. Luckily, Fairfax EggBank and my coordinator made it as painless as possible. I am so thrilled to say I am 18 weeks pregnant and looking forward to the birth of our little one!
Our journey to parenthood has been long. I knew I wanted to be a dad for decades, but it took me a while to find the right partner who also wanted a family. But then it took us another few years to be in a financial position to be able to try to build one. There are a lot of expenses, from surrogate fees, IVF and medication costs, legal fees, and donor egg costs. Last year, we were finally ready.
After searching a few different egg banks, we settled on Fairfax EggBank because they had a wide variety of ethnic donors. We ended up finding a donor who was perfect for us – an unusual ethnic mix that matched my partner and my preference, had great looks and a strong education, bio, the whole nine. Our surrogate got pregnant with the donor eggs on the first try and we’re expecting a baby in the spring.
We were obviously very happy with the outcome of working with Fairfax EggBank. We just purchased more eggs from the same donor so that our children will be genetic half-siblings with each of us as the genetic father.
Warm and welcoming customer service! I was blown away by the donor selection on the website. So many lovely girls!
I worked closely with JeanMarie, just lovely more importantly she helped us to simply and cohesively understand the donor egg process from start to finish. We had a lot of questions and concerns but we were reassured that we had the freedom to take the information and continue our discussions thoughtfully and make the decision when we were ready. She was caring and very knowledgeable about the process and about all of the donors that we looked at. Sometimes the only person that you are sharing this experience is your coordinator and doctor so we felt good to have an ally to talk with. JeanMarie seemed genuinely invested in her work and helping us to achieve this dream. She took time to schedule calls with us so that my husband could participate fully. Now we are excited that we are expecting……….and So So… excited Fairfax EggBank is definitely…. Not just an EggBank, They genuinely care about the families that they are working with!!
My personal experience with Fairfax EggBank…
I dealt with Samantha. Samantha is a calm, collected and reasonable person. Every time that I had a question, she answered directly and honestly. When she didn’t know, she said so and got back to me with an answer. I was so lucky to have been paired with someone like me… good old fashioned honesty. I was, therefore, able to assess my options better and make realistic decisions because of Samantha’s professionalism.
When it came to my fertility procedure, this time it was IVF. I am not going to lie, most of the people in this fertility clinic were cold and callous. I did not go to the same clinics as my other two friends. The process was extremely terrifying… a lot of “ifs.” Samantha was always there to balance that out… filling in the bedside manners. Every single time, she was available to explain the procedures and reassure me, when I needed to be calm and confident with my choices. In the end, Samantha became my ‘go to’ because I often felt that I could not rely upon the specialist or the clinic… most of them often could not be bothered with taking the time to address my concerns and elaborate the way that Samantha did.
Samantha kept me calm all throughout my frustrated and panicked days… well, whenever I called her. I called her to tell her the clinic’s initial claim on viable blastocysts; there were 3. Days later, I then called to tell her the end result – there was only one viable blastocyst – the one inside of me. I had to patiently wait to see if the blastocyst would Implant and develop. Naturally, at this point, it could have gone either way so I deliberately remained calm because I didn’t want to look back and blame myself if it did not work out… it was very grueling waiting for the results.
I presently have a wonderful, healthy child who drives me happily and LOVINGLY crazy. My beautiful child… my son.
Thank you Samantha for your integrity… for being there… and for being you.
Thank you Fairfax EggBank for your vigorous effort and technology to help all of us who have a story as to why we couldn’t do it on our own. May you continue to do just that.

My wife Jennifer and I worked with JeanMarie last year in achieving the goal of extending our current family. We were more than blown away by the level of excellent customer service she gave us. Our experience was definitely challenging in a lot of ways but JeanMarie provided us with a level of comfort that helped us out greatly throughout the process. The entire process was very seamless and in the end, we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl.
Jennifer and I cannot thank JeanMarie and your company enough for the great level of customer service and overall care we received. We will definitely recommend your company.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! After 4.5 LONG years (4 failed IVFs and 7 failed IUIs) of trying to conceive, we found the Fairfax EggBank Family, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. After working with four different doctors and assessing about 10 other egg banks, the moment we spoke to our coordinator at Fairfax EggBank, we knew we hit jackpot. She was not only extremely responsive but also attentive and patient. As you can imagine, during the selection process we were very picky. But, she was very patient and punctual with responding to our inquiries for additional information on potential donors or candidates. From start to finish, she was thorough, honest, and professional.
Skipping forward to the day we found out we were finally pregnant with Micah – which BTW was only our first attempt with the donor eggs – we were extremely ecstatic, as I’m sure you can imagine. We immediately called our coordinator to thank the Fairfax EggBank Family endlessly for their support, healthy eggs, and seamless process. We think what also helped was the manner in which they established a relationship with our doctor. It made the whole experience so much easier and personal. Through the process it just seemed like we were one big family, equally hoping for success. In fact, our coordinator actually got very emotional when she learned we were successful. I loved it!!!
Now our son is almost 6 months old, and I don’t think a month has gone by – since the time we found out we were pregnant – that someone from Fairfax EggBank hasn’t reached-out just to check on our family. We feel like they’re family now, and we want to thank them from the bottom of hearts for helping to make this possible :-)!! By far, they have the best prices of all the places we consulted and, when it comes to top-notch customer service, they rank higher than the best!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We love you honorary Fairfax EggBank Family :-)!!!
