By shipping their eggs anywhere in the world, The World Egg Bank is giving women everywhere a glimmer of hope when struggling to become a mother.

“It’s one of the great injustices in the world that people that can afford great education get a great education and the people that can afford to have babies get babies,” said Diana Thomas President and CEO of The World Egg Bank.

The World Egg Bank has recently partnered with CARE Fertility Center in the United Kingdom to provide easy, local access to donor eggs. The partnership will help eliminate travel time and costs that are conventionally associated with the egg donating process. Dr. Simon Fishel founded CARE Fertility and is world renown as one of the doctors who had the first “test tube” baby in the world, Louis Brown in 1978.

The World Egg Bank provides fertility services to women who need donated eggs to achieve pregnancy. The company offers screening, recruiting and egg donor matching services to arrange for fresh or frozen egg donations for recipient women.

As the first and only commercial egg bank in the world, The World Egg Bank strives to provide recipients with comfort, education, and information about the various types of egg donating processes in order to ensure that each woman is making the best decision for their lifestyle.

The World Egg Bank was formed in 2004; however, Thomas has been matching donors and recipients for 14 years. Her inspiration for the company originated through her own struggles with fertility.

“When established, the company was way ahead of the technological and medical acceptance curve for egg banking, but we wanted to start educating the public and doctors about the option of using frozen donor eggs,” Thomas said.

With the help of new technology, the company has become an international leader in donor egg banking. Women are now offered four different options (the fresh egg process, the frozen egg process, a custom choice option, and a custom choice embryo option) to choose from when planning to conceive.

“Unfortunately there is no science to nature,” Thomas said, “We can only create the best scenarios that we can.”
