6. Donation details:

*NOTE – in terms of the Regulations: Artificial Fertilisation of Persons, an embryo donor is not defined, but rather a ‘gamete donor’
is defined. This is because the law sees an embryo donation as a double gamete donation. Despite the below questions referring
to a ‘gamete donation’, this information is still relevant for the purposes of your embryo donation.

6.1. Is it the parties’ intention that the Donor be a ‘gamete donor’ as described in the Regulations: Artificial Fertilisation of
Persons, and that such donation is for the purpose of artificial fertilisation of Recipient Parent 1, and for the
consequences of those sections to apply? The consequences of the Regulations are:
6.1.1. that the Donor not to obtain any children and/or parental rights and responsibility for herself/
6.1.2. that Recipient Parent 1 and 2 become the legal parents of any child born as a result of the donation and are
therefore co-guardians and co-holders of all parental responsibilities and rights in respect of the child
YesNo, our intention is:

*NOTE – in terms of the Regulations: Artificial Fertilisation of Persons, a gamete donor is entitled to specify the number of
artificial fertilisations that his/her gametes are authorised to be used for. Although artificial fertilisation does not guarantee a
successful pregnancy and/or live birth, it is easier to equate the number of children that the donor consents to, rather than
the number of artificial fertilisations.

6.2. The Donor consents to as many artificial fertilisations, being performed, as are necessary for Parent 1 to conceive the
below selected number of children being born as a result of his/her donation:
