    @Canuck congratulations that's fantastic news. siansmum are you still deciding where to go? We've crossed paths a few times in threads and I used David O'Callaghan as well with my daughters birth...
    Hopefully you're closer to making a decision...Cape Town truly is beautiful and you'd have a great holiday for sure.

    Hi emski72,

    What a small world that you had David as your obstetrician! How divine is that man! I just can't speak highly enough of him, and I hope very much that we'll have another precious baby for him to deliver in the future.

    Well, after seeing Lynn Burmeister on Tuesday, we've now decided (on her recommendation) to go with Cape Fertility, as long as we can access my superannuation. It is certainly cheaper than Spain, and they were number two on Lynn's list, after a place in San Diego. My husband's still not convinced about the safety aspect, but at least he's agreed to go. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that we'll be able to get all the funds from my superannuation, because if we're declined then that's it for us.

    Just a quick hello from me, and I wanted to let people know that we delivered our second SA DE baby last week.

    Our son Ryan, is completely gorgeous and our family is now complete thanks very much to the team at CFC and our wonderful donor.

    Not sure how much I'll be online here now but I wish you all the very very best.

    I'm a bit confused though about the donor selection process - do you know anything about it? Does the clinic provide us with a list of donors and we make our selection or do we have to go through an agency? Just don't quite get that.
    You have to go through an agency and they have to be registered...the agencies follow a fairly strict set of guidelines. CFC will give you a list of the current member agencies. Some people on here prefer some agencies but I, personally, think the most important bit is to pick the right donor for you.......

    My Australian fertility specialist said, " pick one who is young...say 25 or younger" and "make sure she is proven". Some agencies say a donor is 'proven' and it just means she has taken all her meds....what you really want is someone whose eggs have resulted in a live birth - either through her own kids or through previous donations.

    After that is the fun bit.......! Picking for the qualities you are looking for...whether that is looks, personality, lack of diseases in their family etc etc. You get a fairly comprehensive list of their medical history, reasons they are donating, baby pictures and you can always direct questions about the donor to the agency. You can also check with CFC on that donors history (if one exists).

    ...this is my SHORT answer! I've selected two donors through CFC (and also a sperm donor in previous cycles that I did in Australia) but I'm not an expert!

    Happy hunting!
