Egg donor study

May 13, 2019

If you have donated your eggs to another woman (either someone previously known to you such as a family member or friend, or someone not known to you, such as through a clinic), the donation occurred in New Zealand, and you are interested in sharing your views about your motivations for and experiences of donation, then you are invited to participate in this research!

This involves taking part in an interview at a time and place convenient to you. The interview can be either face-to-face (if it’s in the Auckland area) or via media or telephone. The interview is expected to take approximately an hour and a half of your time.

The aim is to gain a better understanding of some of the reasons for which women may donate their eggs and to explore their experiences of donation.


The study is conducted by Dr. Sonja Goedeke, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Auckland University of Technology in conjunction with postgraduate students in Psychology.

If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact:
