Kathleen donated her eggs through our partner clinic, the London Egg Bank, which has seen hundreds of women come through its doors looking to donate their eggs since it opened in 2013. Here she tells her story.
"We will be eternally grateful to LWC Wales for their professionalism, care and support"
"I know that some people assume that I wish I had a husband with me along the way but this just feels so normal for me. This is my baby and we are a little team of two."
"It’s scary to think that you’ll not be able to have a baby without IVF but we made the right choice by going to the LWC Cardiff and having our treatment with the
best in the field"
"I was never treated any differently to a couple and never felt judged for being a single woman wanting a baby. My life feels complete now. Being a mum is the best job in the world."
"It was the best birthday present we could have given my Dad, and we definitely had a big celebration"
