Aussie Egg Donors - HOME
Welcome to the Aussie Egg Donor Online Community Bulletin Board
Welcome to the AED Bulletin Board. This board grew from a need to expand a yahoo support group - Aussie Egg Donors - both in terms of usability and a fast growing membership. The AussieEggDonor group was started in 2002 when two Australian egg donors thought there was room for an Australian/New Zealand support group. From a few initial members, the group has grown to over 400 active members, providing support, information and guidance in all stages of the egg donation journey, both recipients and donors, as well as surrogate mothers and embryo donors. As a community, we are committed to supporting others on this path and warmly welcome you.
To maintain as much of the character of the AED yahoo group as possible, we have created this space as a private bulletin board, and all members are approved by Administration. It has always been the group's aim to protect each member's privacy and to provide a safe haven to talk frankly and openly. Due to the senstive nature of the information we share, we expect people to post at least once every two weeks in order to discourage lurking. If it is not possible to post once every two weeks, please contact Admin and let them know so your account is not deleted.
As per our guidelines at AED, although we have provided an opportunity for recipients to indicate they are looking for a donor, we encourage all recipients not to approach donors, but to allow donors the freedom of the board to approach recipients if they choose to do so. Likewise we encourage donors to only approach one recipient at a time. We encourage everyone to be honest with their dealings with other people. Under Victorian legislation, it is illegal for recipients to advertise for a donor unless they have the appropriate written authoristaion from the Minister for Health - we will delete all advertisements from Victorian recipients until they have the appropriate approval.
