Egg sharing to reduce IVF costs (UK)

from the Yorkshire Post Today - Leeds,Yorkshire,UK

'Helping someone desperate for a child to realise their dreams is a wonderful thing'

A story from the UK about egg sharing. After egg collection, the eggs
are shared equally between the egg sharer and the recipient.

"With relatively limited NHS funding for IVF available nationally,
many couples with fertility problems cannot afford to pay for the
treatment that they need. Egg sharing provides IVF treatment for
infertile couples who are prepared to share some of their eggs, at a
drastically reduced the cost."
