The World Egg Bank

Rainbow Fertility has a range of donor eggs available, with no waiting periods (NSW & QLD only). Call our Fertility Advice Team on 1300 222 623 to find out more.

Rainbow Fertility has joined The World Egg Bank (TWEB) in a partnership to provide those who do not produce eggs or cannot use the eggs they produce, with the opportunity to experience pregnancy and to bear a child. The donated eggs can also be used in surrogacy to help others achieve their dream of parenthood (depending on state legislation).

Your decision to use donated eggs is extremely important, and for this reason, we aim to provide you with as much information as you require. Our fertility nurses are available to discuss any questions you may have about The World Egg Bank Donor Program or you can contact The World Egg Bank Donor Program directly.

About The World Egg Bank and Why we Chose them

Before you think that all banks are equal, consider how an egg bank is managing egg quality.

The World Egg Bank is specialised

The World Egg Bank has developed a unique structure: they are the only egg bank that focuses only on providing quality donor ova. They built a state-of-the-art facility that solely focuses on egg freezing. Their unique centralised model ensures they conduct all egg vitrification with proven protocols and the same experienced laboratory systems and professionals. They manage all donor stimulations and retrievals in one single location. They manage quality.

How do other egg banks operate?

All other egg banks out-source donor recruiting, screening, retrieval, egg freezing and egg transport services; a plethora of different clinics are recruiting, stimulating, retrieving, and freezing donor eggs. Individual clinic employees at each out-sourced clinic location are coming and going, and new training must take place with each new employee at every stage of the donor process. Who can manage consistency network-wide for donor recruiting, screening, retrievals, egg freezing, and shipping?

Why does it matter who is freezing your eggs?

The World Egg Bank donors comply with Australian state laws and national regulations, including both External Donor Gamete Compliance and Internal Donor Gamete Compliance.

Who is handling/shipping your donor eggs?

All other egg banks who outsource to network clinics have additional risks. Moving eggs from a storage tank to a shipper is a delicate matter. The World Egg Bank ships your eggs once – directly to Rainbow Fertility. There are no middlemen or distribution hubs.

The World Egg Bank knows what matters?

They do everything. The World Egg Bank manages all donor recruiting, stimulation, retrieval, egg freezing, and shipping of The World Egg Bank eggs at their single, state-of-the-art freezing centre. No out-sourcing, no inconsistencies, interruptions, or distractions. Their team applies the same protocols and procedures to every facet of their operations to create highly consistent quality banked donor eggs.


Who Needs Donor Eggs?

  • Those who have undergone premature menopause.
  • Individuals who for genetic reasons cannot use their own eggs.
  • Individuals who have been repeatedly unsuccessful on the In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) program.
  • Individuals born without ovaries.
  • Those who have undergone treatment for cancer.
  • Individuals considering surrogacy.
