When my partner and I set out to find an egg donor, we were overwhelmed by the process. We spoke to many agencies, but were immediately impressed with the staff at BHED. You really get the sense they care about their donors and their clients. They have an incredibly detailed and thorough vetting process, providing a wealth of valuable information about the donors. Once you enter the process, you really feel cared for. They were on top of every step of the process and incredibly responsive and professional throughout. I highly recommend them!

The largest gay magazine and website in the UK, Pride Life, a one-stop lifestyle resource for the LGBT community, recently featured Beverly Hills Egg Donation (BHED) as a go-to provider of egg donation services for LGBT families.
The featured article, entitled “Becoming Parents”, answered potential egg donation recipient’s questions from the unique perspective of an LGBT family.
The article included one family’s success story with BHED: “Our smartest move was assembling a top-notch team: a surrogacy agency that matched us with a heroic surrogate; an egg donation agency, BHED, that brought us donor after donor when fate (including some bad timing and poor cycles) conspired against us; and a doctor who made magic happen before our eyes while gently holding our hands through it all.”

FAMILY BUILDING NETWORK
MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUP MEETING
The FBN is a monthly support group that brings together families formed with the help of egg/sperm/embryo donation and/or surrogacy as well as parents-to-be; giving them the opportunity to ask questions, get answers to their concerns, share experiences and feel supported.
The decision to parent with the help of donors/surrogates involves multiple choices. Many parents are unsure whether they should tell their children about their conception. Even for those who make the decision to tell, the uncertainty of how and when to begin this conversation can often result in years passing by and children not being told about their genetic origins. Fear of “doing it wrong” or “being rejected” by their children seems to become the biggest roadblocks to talking and sharing.
The monthly FBN meetings provide a safe and comfortable place where you need not feel alone or different. Often, listening and sharing stories with others can give parents the confidence needed to not only start the talk with their children and others, but continue to grow the conversation.
