View Full Version : Advice
I will be talking to a possible donor in the next couple of days and wanted to know what kinds of questions should I be asking in the first meeting or get some feedback on how your first meetings went with your donors.
Any advice would be great!
I'm sure michelle and sarah might have some ideas being on the other side so to speak, I got most of the questions sorted on the phone, as we were interstate.
It all fell through but we met us anyway for coffee which was good
wishing you luck:fingerscrossed: that it all goes well

I dont know exactly what you are wanting to know.
Being on the other side of things I was nervious and very anxious.
Has you potential donor donated before? If not it is even more nerve wracking.
Just be yourself and relax, I am sure you will develop a wonderful friendship.
Need any more info just PM me.
as a donor for the last 10 years, i can tell you that if you are nervous, you can bet your boots that she will be too.
Important questions to ask:
Family history - health, mental health, origin of country
Do they understand the whole procedure? - this is really important as alot of people offer to donate and then back out when they find out that there are needles etc involved.
Do they have a partner, and if so , does the partner agree to the donation?
Do they have any expectations linked with the donation - eg seeing the child after it is born, further contact etc
Should the donation and any frozen embryos not be successful, are there any chances of a second donation
should you need to ask anything else just pm me and best of luck and remember to just be yourself:) :) :) :)
thanks Ladies and special thanks to Pices00 for responding. Much appreciated.
:yelclap: Good luck Tashimoo, I'm sure the nerves will settle once you meet each other and things will be just fine after that. I agree with all the other ladies, that it is important to start on the right footing and I think honesty is the best policy, as far as information sharing is concerned. I also believe it is OK to say you're feeling nervous, because as pisces00 has said, chances are she will be too!
Good luck and best wishes.:fingerscrossed:
