"After multiple miscarriages & failed in-vitro attempts, our doctor connected us with Valerie. The decision to use a donor was not an easy one. After my first conversation with Valerie, many of my concerns faded away. She is warm, compassionate, patient & realistic. Infertility can be an isolating experience. She became an important emotional support for me. Tomorrow I will be seven weeks pregnant. Thank you, Valerie."
“Being an egg donor and the process of donation (the medications, office visits and retrieval) was much easier than I imagined it would be! It was a wonderful experience. I’m very happy to know that I made a positive contribution in someone else’s life. I recommend Egg Donation for other women as a way of helping with expenses while doing something very good for someone else.”
“Initially, I felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the task to choose an egg donor but Valerie, our Donor Coordinator was very helpful and compassionate and I felt comfortable working with her. We chose a donor that had wonderful qualities and seemed very much like me and my sisters in personality. I was amazed at how excited my husband and I became once we had chosen our egg donor. We are now very proud parents of a beautiful baby boy! After years of trying to conceive the miracle of this baby in our lives is something that blesses us every day.”
"Valerie McMorris, my donor coordinator, has a wonderful Spirit! We met over a year and a half ago when I found out that my eggs were no longer viable. Our initial call lasted about 90 minutes as she explained to me the donor process. I thought that once she forwarded her the information and set up the appointments, her job would be done.
She made herself available to me and listened to me when I was down, up, or you-name-it. Valerie was determined that I was going to become a mommy, and we were not done until that happened. Valerie believed for the both of us when I doubted myself. I thought I would never find a donor fit for me.
I went through several donors that did not work out. I felt defeated on all fronts due to a series of life-changing events- as I sat in the company conference room speaking to Valerie, holding back my tears thinking this was an omen but Valerie stayed on the phone with me until I pulled myself together.
I truly thought Valerie would finally say, "I have done all I can do for you," but she stood by me through the initial excitement, the disappointment, and every human emotion that pops up when one is trying to conceive. Valerie had transcended the donor representative to become a friend.
We found not just a donor but the perfect donor for me. I took one look, and I knew.
Valerie is a true professional in every aspect of the word - troubleshooting, talking to doctors, breaking down terminology I didn't understand. I am forever grateful for her passion and love for her job and her patience and wisdom. I have no words to describe how honored I am to have her in my life. Today I am happy to say I am pregnant and looking forward to motherhood."
“In terms of the cycle itself, and the medications I took, I was surprised at how little the meds affected my body- I guess, I had expected to feel sick, but the shots barely affected me. My donation was a positive experience and it was easier than I thought it would be.
As a Donor Coordinator, Valerie was fabulous. Having been a donor herself, she really understood the process and all the questions I had. She made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. The screening can be somewhat long (and careful, and that is a good thing), but it can also be sort of frustrating: the donor wants the cycle to happen quickly and the recipient couple wants to be pregnant as soon as possible- Valerie understands that, and did a great job of expediting the process and getting the cycle started. ”
"I cannot say enough about Valerie. She is professional, kind, personable and compassionate. Valerie is incredibly detail oriented and has complete ownership of her subject. She is also very intuitive and perceptive and is therefore able to anticipate, and meet her clients needs completely. I can't recommend her highly enough."
"If someone had told us three years ago when we started our infertility journey that we would use an egg donor, we would not have believed them. After multiple miscarriages, chemical pregnancies and failed in-vitro attempts, our doctor connected us with Valerie.
Initially, the decision to use a donor was not an easy one for us. After my first conversation with Valerie, many of my concerns faded away. She is warm, compassionate, patient and realistic. We had many lengthy conversations, where she would answer all my questions, calm me down and make me feel better. I never felt rushed off the phone or like my concerns were silly. Infertility can be an isolating experience. We didn't share our situation with family and friends. Valerie became a very important emotional support for me.
We had some ups and downs in finding the right donor. Through it all, Valerie kept me informed every step of the way and continued to encourage us not to give up. Our donor had a limited time frame of availability. Valerie worked closely with the doctors office to make sure appointments stayed on track and things moved forward. Tomorrow I will be seven weeks pregnant. For the first time in three years, my husband and I are optimistic about the outcome. Without Valerie, we would not be finally starting our family. Valerie, I can't thank you enough for all you did for us. And because of Valerie, Donor Services of NY is the best Egg Donor Recruiting agency in New York City."
"When I finally resigned myself to the fact the only way for me to give birth to a baby was to use a donor's egg my first thought was.... where do I find a reputable agency? I began my search online looking at several agencies. I came across many that seem to create additional and unnecessarily costly steps to an already difficult process. I found most places to be expensive and not personable. I knew I needed to work with someone who would be understanding and sensitive to how important it was for me to find the right donor.
When I found Donor Services it was simple, easy and effortless. I spoke with my doctor and she gave me confidence, she had not only heard of them but worked with them in the past and they were in fact a good agency to deal with. After our initial screening they had us fill out questionnaires and almost immediately I begin to receive profiles of potential donors. Within a few short months we found the perfect donor match! I began this journey skeptical and ended it with a donor's egg who I was more excited about placing inside of me than my very own. I knew her eggs would be viable and would give us the best shot at having a family. We are currently five months pregnant with twins and couldn't be happier. Donor Services made everything simple, effortless and possible for us to have the family we so badly wanted. I will be forever thankful that I got to work with what I believe is the best donor agency in New York City."
"My husband and I were overwhelmed with the idea of having to find an egg donor in order to conceive pregnancy. We were given a referral to contract Valerie McMorris of Donor Services of NY. We did not know what to expect when we first made the call to speak with Valerie and I can honestly say, we loved working with Donor Services of NY; We were grateful to find so many wonderful egg donor candidates that were local and lived within commuting distance of the New York City Metro area. And I think we were even more surprised to discover that the majority of donor egg candidates were pretty, smart and very well rounded in their interests and talents. I can now, happily add that I am 8 months pregnant! I would not hesitate to recommend Valerie McMorris and Donor Services of NY to anyone in need of an egg donor."
“I thought about becoming an egg donor for a long time before I moved ahead with it. I did a lot of reading about the process of egg donation.
I wanted to help a loving couple have the child they dreamt of- And I was very happy to have been chosen to be an egg donor. I put the compensation money to good use- and I am now studying nursing. I am pursuing my own dream and Egg Donation helped that to happen."
"Valerie is diligent when it comes to matching the donors and recipient couples. She is very helpful and is always available to answer any questions you may have about being a donor. She is extremely kind and professional. She is also very fun to work with. I love working with Valerie because she made me feel comfortable and has already matched me a few times. THANK YOU VALERIE!"
