A Kiwi couple a week fly overseas for fertility treatment because it's easier to fulfill their dreams of becoming parents abroad, say fertility experts.
Infertile women needing donor eggs, who don't have a friend or relative who can help, can face more than a year waiting to be selected to receive donor eggs in New Zealand. And there is a chance they might never be picked.

The overseas option can see women waiting only a matter of months to have embryos implanted. The Herald on Sunday found several countries offering services from the US to India and Spain.
