Agencies Unite to Launch Donor Network Alliance: First-Ever Web-Based Collective of Egg Donor Candidates
Date:3/10/2009

CHICAGO, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Web site has launched that facilitates the search for egg donors by prospective parents undergoing alternative reproductive processes. The Donor Network Alliance (DNA) is the first and only consolidated source of egg donors recruited by multiple agencies across the United States.

Membership-based DNA was started by three competing Chicago egg donor agencies that saw the need to pool resources: The Center for Egg Options (CEO), Northbrook, IL; ConceiveAbilities, and Alternative Reproductive Resources (ARR), both of Chicago.

"DNA is needed as the fertility field grows in size and complexity," said Robin von Halle, president of ARR. "This has resulted in a proliferation of agencies that recruit egg donors, which makes weighing agency and donor choices more costly, confusing and time consuming for intended parents."

The DNA Web site is the portal to a robust, searchable database of hundreds of anonymous egg donor candidates represented by donor recruitment firms of all sizes across the country. It is expected to house at least 10,000 profiles from participating agencies by the end of its first year in business.

For a nominal fee, subscribers have unlimited access to the database for the two-week usage term. They can search according to various parameters, from ethnic descent to eye and hair color. Searches can be saved. Favorites can be flagged. Each donor profile is posted alongside her agency, which can be e-mailed directly from the site for further information.

"It's all about putting the intended parents in control of the egg donor search process," said Nazca Fontes, president of ConceiveAbilities. "This helps them avoid excessive research of multiple agencies, tracking multiple usernames and passwords, and paying multiple usage fees. It's a needed improvement of the customer experience."

Nancy Block, president of CEO, noted that egg donor agencies also benefit in an environment where it's costly and difficult to achieve differentiation. "DNA helps to level the playing field, giving participating agencies exposure to far more prospective parents through a shared site than they'd see individually," she said.
