UPDATE:

BEE Davis and her wife may have found a potential sperm donor after a willing participant has put his hand up.

The 31-year-old Mooloolaba man, who doesn't wish to be named yet, said he had been thinking about becoming a donor for a long time and this would be the perfect opportunity.

"As a loving father myself I feel it's an opportunity to let these women experience a beautiful thing," he said.

" I believe 1000% in equality and hope that they get to experience and cherish being a parent as love and devotion alone will raise their off-spring into exactly who they are supposed to be."

The volunteer said he had seen his friends go through a similar struggle with IVF and hated the thought of other couples going through the same when he could help.

"I used to have pretty wealthy friends and they spent $60,000 on IVF and almost gave up," he said.

"I want to help people on that path be able to get pregnant."

He said he wasn't ready yet to reveal his identity

"I'd love to go 'hey it's me helping these people out,' but that's for another day if these people are happy for me to help," he said.

The potential donor said he did tick all of the boxes the couple were looking for.

"I'm 31, hilarious, self-proclaimed but that's ok, intelligent, active, not unattractive, healthy and free of anything and everything that may cause any health issues for the future gem."

EARLIER:

AFTER sinking thousands of dollars into failed IVF treatments a Sunshine Coast couple has publicly called for a sperm donor to help them conceive a child.

Bee Davis said she and her wife had been through six rounds of "dreaded IVF" where her "girl bits" had been "poked, pulled, prodded and stared at by five million people".

Thousands of dollars and a miscarriage later the couple said they had now resorted to Facebook and the "amazing community of the Sunshine Coast" for some help".

"We need sperm," Bee Davis posted.

"We are ready for some people to cringe at this, as we are well aware that some people think that same sex couples don't have the right to be parents.

"Regardless of what some people think, my wife and I will be amazing mums and all we want is to have the chance to raise a beautiful person."

Ms Davis said unfortunately now due to a lack of funds and genetic material they needed a generous donor to help them achieve the goal of becoming parents.

"Unfortunately my wife lacks the vital ingredient - the baby batter," Bee Davis wrote.

"I bet you are thinking to yourself there has to be an easier way to do this and not make is so public but believe me we have tried."

Bee Davis said while she and her wife weren't fussy there were a few things they were looking for in a donor:

1. Good health and a clear medical history

2. A kind person

3. Somewhat intelligent

4. A great sense of humour

5. Aged between 18 and 50

6. Someone that can be available four times a cycle

7. Not want to be the child's father

8. Have good values

9. Not a homophobe.

The couple's post on the Sunshine Coast Community Board Facebook page has already had more than 100 shares and 800 likes and other Coast residents have used the post to share their support and similar struggles of conceiving a baby.

"I'm glad you're putting it out there. We also have to use IVF to conceive anymore children because my husband is infertile. If we could share we would because I know how hard it is to want a child you can't conceive naturally," Katrina Nelson said.

"Been there and done that with IVF and lost eight babies and couldn't do it anymore. Wish you all the luck, if I was of the opposite sex I would give you the baby batter," Suzanne Boylett said.

"Well done for putting yourselves out there, I hope your dream of becoming parents comes true real soon. Having children is one of the best gifts and everyone who has love in their hearts to be parents should get to experience it. All the best to you both," Mel Lissa said.
