Gail Freeman, WHNP

Patient Testimonial
Having a team that’s with you the whole way really boosts your confidence, makes you feel safe, makes you feel like you can ask questions… It was wonderful, it honestly made me feel kind of treasured in a way.

My mother struggled with fertility and had my wonderful brother with fertility treatments and I would love to give another family the chance to either start a family or expand their current family.

For me, egg donation is a privilege and I consider myself lucky to be able to give in such a profound way. The first time I donated, I remember vividly how emotionally good I felt. Pure, simple goodness in the knowledge that I created hope where previously there had been none.

I felt so passionate and positive about my experience, I couldn’t wait to share it with more women so that they, too, could experience the same.

It’s the excitement and joy that I feel knowing that I can help a family in such a special way that means the most to me. My next donation is already scheduled, and I plan to continue donating as long as recipients continue to choose me.

I didn’t have money to pay for IVF and tried other companies. I can never fully express my gratitude to Fertility Finance for making my dream of motherhood come true. You are responsible for giving me the most precious gift I will ever receive and I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Q&A

I spent my early nursing career working in women’s health. While pursuing my master’s degree as a NP I worked in the fertility office where I had been a patient (a successful one). I found my new calling. I felt that I could bring a perspective to the job of a previous patient. I have never looked back on that decision.

Watching just about any sport on TV or in person, especially baseball, reading, needlepoint and traveling.

Probably nothing, since I’m a pretty open book.
