Have you helped childless couples have children? Either through surrogacy or egg donation? Kelly Parsons shares her amazing IVF egg donor story with The Sun…
When Kelly Parsons got in touch with her incredible story we knew a paper would love to hear from her.
After suffering three miscarriages Kelly was inspired to help other women suffering from fertility problems have children.
Over the course of 18 months, she donated over 50 eggs and helped three childless couples have FIVE children.
She kept a photo diary of her grueling IVF donor sessions and shared pictures of her bruised legs after having to inject twice a day for two months to stimulate her ovaries.
The recipients are anonymous although the children have the legal right at the age of 18 years-old to get in touch with Kelly and her two children, who would be the babies’ half-sisters.
The 39-year-old spoke candidly to The Sun how her 11-year-old daughter Charlotte is excited by the thought that she has brothers and sisters out there and even wants to become an egg donor when she grows up.
How Talk to the Press can secure the best coverage for your story
Feature editor Paisley had a long chat with Kelly and then mapped out her media journey for her.
To start with, Paisley placed Kelly’s story exclusively with The Sun – where it appeared as a double page spread.
After, she secured Kelly magazine deals with two of the biggest women’s weekly mags.
For Kelly, raising awareness for egg donation was her ultimate goal and she wasn’t fussed about profiting from the story.
However, we ensure all of our clients receive top fees for their stories regardless of whether they want payment or not – what our client chooses to do with their fee after is entirely their prerogative.
True to her selfless character, Kelly chose to donate hers to charity and we supported her every step of the way.
If you’ve become an egg donor or surrogate we’d love to hear from you. Call us on 0207 549 5406 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

“The Talk to the Press team have been amazing right from first point of contact.
Georgie and Paisley have been super friendly yet very professional in helping my story reach its full potential, I have total trust in their opinion.
It’s been a fantastic experience and I was really pleased with the coverage they secured for me in The Sun and in two women’s magazines.
“My story was handled sensitively and Paisley read it back to me before it went to press to make sure I was happy with it. For me, it wasn’t about making money it was about raising awareness.”
