ROCKVILLE, MD. — Laura has donated her eggs four times to women who needed help having children.
“It gave me a real sense of purpose,” she said. “It really is a great personal pleasure to know that I have something that changes someone’s life.”
Laura, 28, from Manassas, Va., asked that her full name not be published to protect her privacy.
She made the donations through A Jewish Blessing, a company in Jacksonville, Florida, that matches Jewish potential parents who are infertile with Jewish egg, or ovum, donors and surrogates. The company has helped bring more than 180 babies into the world in its 10-year history, said founder Judy Weiss.
