After many years of struggling with infertility, the PVED founder, Marna Gatlin, discovered that the technology to have a child through egg donation was available. She was curious, excited, and above all, hopeful that this process might be the conduit to finally achieving her lifelong dream of becoming a parent.
As she began her quest to learn about egg donation, she was frustrated by the lack of information available about this particular assisted reproduction technology. What she wanted was education and support, but she was unable to find it. She did find a small e-mail listserv called Mothers Via Egg Donation, or MVED. That group became her lifeline through the process of conceiving her son, and over time she became its primary moderator.
From its beginnings in 2004 to present, MVED has thousands of members who share emotional support, as well as clinic, donor agency, medication, mental health, and other information about egg donation on a daily basis. Over time, MVED members were approached by traditional parents, single mothers, and single fathers, as well as gay and lesbian couples who wanted to know where they fit into the arena of people who choose egg donation. Many of these individuals didn’t feel they had the means to receive support, get educated, become empowered, or have a voice. Often they felt isolated.
Taking into account these desires-as well as the fact that MVED, while an important resource, was limited by being a list-serve – Marna Gatlin decided to create an organization that would embrace every parent who had chosen egg donation to grow their family. Her vision: a global resource for unbiased, timely, and accurate information about egg donation, eliminating the need to search far and wide for piecemeal information and answers.
PVED was born.
*Parents Via Egg Donation is not affiliated with any IVF clinic, embryo donation agency, independent egg broker or law practice. PVED is a non-profit independent organization.
