Fertility North provides a certified donor programme which strictly abides by current state and federal legislation. Our Donor Programme incorporates the care and treatment for donors and recipients, and their partners (if applicable).
To oversee the smooth delivery of our programme, Fertility North is proud to employ an experienced Donor Coordinator who provides ongoing information and support, as well as the planning and organisation of donor appointments, counselling, screening tests and treatments.
Fertility North has a range of local and international sperm donors, via our exclusive agreement with the Seattle Sperm Bank. However, we are always on the lookout for new sperm donors locally. Sperm donation is an incredible gift that can help one or more families achieve their dream of becoming a parent. At Fertility North, we do everything in our power to make this process as easy as possible for our generous donors.
