Congrats! I cannot imagine such a huge undertaking! What a wonderful way to help others have the gift of a family. way to go Tertia and Melany.

Well done on a fantastic idea Tertia and Melany. I know it will be a huge success of this project, and you are going to be helping so many people. Like Charne says, an inspiration indeed. If I wasn't an old bat myself I'd donate for sure.

Hi Its amazing that you have told us this as i actually contacted you on facebook in order to find out how to get involved in donating but never got the chance - weird!!
Congrats and all the best

I did a post about it! Good luck! This is awesome!

A true inspiration Tertia. Doing something you love and close to your heart is the ultimate drive to make something happen. I wish all the success to everyone - win win is always the best!!!

p.s. How do you find time to do everything?? You're superwoman, supermom, superwife, supersister, superfriend, superemployee and superemployer. Did I forget other roles?!

LOVE the logo btw.

Good luck, girls!!

I will post about you tomorrow.



my eggs aren't vrot yet!!! i'm only...

*stomp foot*


i'm only 36


That is wonderful Tertia!!! I will do a post for sure.
Have you considered having a sperm donor programme too? From my last appointment it was made obvious to me that there is a serious need for this in S.A as there are very few good donors at the moment.

Congratulations!! All the very, very best!

Wow - congrats! What an amazing thing to do!!!

I'm not currently in the market for eggs, but I COULD use a nice vooma...what does that cost, and how do I get on the waiting list?

Congrats! What a wonderful undertaking! Maybe one day you will be able to quit your job and work there - wouldn't that be great!

Best of luck to all of you!

Wow, Tertia--that's awesome! Congrats!

Yay you two! And I'll do a post in coming weeks.

Congratulations--this is very cool.

So cool! I mentioned it on my blog and the Network 54 egg donor boards. GL!

This is fantastic--I cant wait to hear about all the amazing stories that will come of this work-and all the lives you will touch!

Freaking AWESOME!!!! GO YOU!!!

That's wonderful! You rock!

Wow, Tertia! You amaze me with the things you can do! You are an inspiration to us all to go out there and change the world. Congratulations!

Wow, Tertia... I'm FLOORED that you've jumped into such a huge and possibly life-changing endeavor. You've taken hold of the reigns and are making a difference where you thought one was needed. If there were more people like you who don't just sit around whining about what is needed and actually make a DIFFERENCE the world would be a better place.

Congrats and good luck to you and all of the potential recipients!

Tertia you never stop amazing me! Congratulations!This is awesome. I don't get to check in as often anymore (taking care of both my parents now, they are both ill so it's a full time job plus running the business) but I'm so glad I checked to see how you are today. WOW! You are going to help change so many women's lives and make their dreams come true, how rewarding and fulfilling is that. You should be so proud of yourself Tertia.

Awesome! Best of luck in your new endeavor.

brilliant. BRILLIANT. you are the woman for the job. I predict success, and that you will quit your "day job". Really great move. Think about advertising in the US too -- seriously.


What a brilliant recipe for success you two are !!

Well done and enjoy every minute

Hi Tertia,

Congrats!! I hope you are able to bring joy & happiness to many deserving families out there!

Awesome!!!!!!!!! Best of luck!

wOW! Right on. interesting to see impact on renew?

Congrats. But I can't see some of the images either???? I'm using the windows browser, latest version.

WOW! I'm so touched and thrilled that you have decided to make the journey of infertility a more positive one. Your book, your blog, the involvement in fertilicare/ support groups and now Nuture! You are an amazing woman and I feel so blessed to share a peek into your life. Well done to you and Mel, this is so needed here in SA and thank you, thank you for everything you're doing!

Awesome! So proud of you Tertia - I know this is going to be a huge success!

Very exciting indeed! Congratulations, and what a wonderful way to integrate your passion with your career. Smart girl.

So, DH and I have been considering doing a DE cycle in South Africa. Will watch your progress very closely. Maybe we could be one of your first customers?

What a wonderful thing the two of you are doing!! It will no doubt make such a difference in so many lives. I couldn't be happier for you both, and for all those women who you will help. God bless you Tertia and Melany, and God bless the donors who give the ultimate gift.

I do think this is a simply lovely idea!

I am seriously interested in donating (remember we discussed it a little while back) but it looks as though South Africans aren't only excluded from donating blood over here in the UK but eggs as well ;-()

Would you consider me if I could time the actual harvesting for when I am over there? My GP would be happy to handle the build up.


Hey T - I just gave it a mention on my blog.


This is so great -- congratulations, Tertia!!! I am so excited for your new adventure and cannot wait to hear about the new families you will help build. As you know, my darlings were donor embryos, but the original couple used donor eggs. I thank this woman who donated her eggs every day of my life.
Way to follow your passion, girl.

This is an amazing project! Congratulations! I wish your success!
