What is Surrogacy?
Surrogacy is the process of hiring other woman's womb to carry the pregnancy for the intended parents. Surrogacy is recommended to those who are unable to conceive naturally due to some medical reasons including multiple miscarriages, the absence of the womb or multiple failed IVF attempts etc. Surrogacy is also the only option to singles, Homosexual couples or Transgenders for parenting.
Surrogacy services require a complete medical, legal, financial and emotional support system for uniform management of both intended parents and surrogates. Surrogacy services involve:
Screening & matching
Screening and matching are conducted depending upon the surrogacy goal of intended parents and surrogates. A mutual matching process is a primary intention for surrogacy service providers.
Counselling & support
Surrogacy is a complex emotional experience ranging from hope, excitement, stress, and doubt. Building a positive relationship between surrogates and intended parents is essential to continue the process. Surrogacy services continuously counsel both the parties to facilitate and maintain the positive relationship and provide proper support system wherever required.
Education and coordination
The detailed knowledge about surrogacy process is very essential, especially for naive surrogates and intended parents. Professional experts of surrogacy service providing agencies give detail knowledge about surrogacy and also oversee the whole process for better coordination.
A vast legal work is required to conduct surrogacy. Surrogacy service providers are also taking care of the country-specific legal documentation for ethical acceptance of the surrogacy procedures, which include consent and relinquishment, second-parent adoption etc.
Fertility treatment, IVF process, prenatal care, and child delivery are different stages that require medical services. Surrogacy services take care of individual client-related medical help.
Surrogacy is an expensive procedure for intended parents. It involves financial compensation for surrogates. Surrogacy services usually manage the financial expenses fairly by providing the fee schedule and an escrow account for a transaction between intended parents and surrogates and provide financial protection for both the parties.
- First we clear all legal and health issues between surrogate and biological parents after that we match the cycle of surrogate and biological mother/egg donor.
- Surrogate mothers play a role to carry baby in her womb from embryo transfer to delivery. There is no genetic relation between baby and surrogate, baby carries genetic material of the intended parents or gamete donor.
- It is the same as an IVF process difference is only that we transfer embryos in the surrogate uterus instead of the intended mother. Once the pregnancy is confirmed the surrogate is monitored on the regular basis by the clinic and dedicated coordinator.
- Surrogate mother visit to hospital/clinic for a regular/routine checkup to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy.
