Here they make Norwegian children that are illegal to make in Norway

Dr. Olga Zaytseff

Fertility specialist, Head of the International Egg Donation Programme

Dr. Olga Zaytseff set up the International Egg Donor programme at AVA-Peter in 2006. Since then, more than 1000 donor egg recipients from all over Europe whom she has treated have delivered babies. Many mothers have also had a second or even third child later from the same donor. Dr. Zaytseff focuses on highly individual egg donor choice and works out an individual treatment plan which suits each recipient’s medical circumstances to create the best possible chance for pregnancy.

“Motherhood is the best thing which has ever happened to me. I am grateful and happy to have this chance of helping childless women experience this miracle. Egg donation is a very special way to motherhood, as it requires an open mind and strong will from the mother-to-be and her partner. Choosing an egg donor you feel comfortable with is a very delicate and emotional process which will influence the wellbeing of the future young family. That is why it is so important for you to make your own choice based on your personal priorities and human values. To make it possible we offer you extensive information about hundreds of donors and our professional guidance.
I am extremely thankful and proud of each member of the dedicated AVA-Peter team who shares my views and truly put their hearts into their work.”
