Surrogacy Process

  1. Establishing of the legal relations between the parties.

    You will only need to provide your passports, marriage certificate with apostille and confirmation of your diagnosis.

  2. Selection of the surrogate.

    Our coordinator will help to find the best candidate upon your individual requests. In cooperation with First Egg Bank we also help to choose high quality egg donors with best matching characteristics in case of need.

  3. Stimulation

    After confirming the surrogate, the doctor synchronizes the cycles of the Intended Mother (or donor) and the surrogate and plans the stimulation.

  4. Egg retrieval.

    At the day of egg retrieval the Intended Father needs to provide fresh semen sample. The embryologists fertilize the oocytes and store them in special environment, so they develop to the stage of blastocysts.

  5. Embryo transfer.

    The doctor transfers 2 embryos to the uterus of the surrogate and if there are more embryos - they are frozen.

  6. Pregnancy confirmation.

    In 14 days after the transfer we perform the HCG level test, which shows us whether we achieved pregnancy. In two weeks more we perform the first USG, where we can see the number of fetuses and heartbeat(s). From this day pregnancy screening begins.

  7. Pregnancy

    During all the period of pregnancy the surrogate is under constant care of the doctor and her medical coordinator. Every 2-3 weeks she comes to the clinic for the regular check-ups. She receives recommendation from the nutritionist and is supported by personal psychologist.

  8. Genetic testing.

    On week 11-13 we perform combined test, on week 16-18 - triple test. These tests allow calculating the risks of such genetic diseases as Down, Edwards and Patau syndromes and defects of neural tube. Childbirth. Starting from week 35 in case of one baby and week 33 in case of twins, the surrogate is under additional control of the obstetrician who will be delivering the baby. After delivery the surrogate and the baby are discharged from the hospital after 3 days in case of natural delivery and 6 days in case of Cesarean section.

  9. Legal process.

    Final step of the program which includes obtaining Ukrainian birth certificate. In case of need our lawyer can help you with preparation of all necessary documents for confirmation of child’s registration and citizenship at home country of his/her parents.

 

Our Surrogates

A surrogate mother is not just a woman, who carries a baby, she is an amazing person, who dedicates herself in order to provide the Intendent Parents a chance to feel the happiness of parentage. For nine months she takes care of a baby, she takes on herself a great responsibility for a new life. Not each woman can be a surrogate mother, she really has to wish this and be physiologically very strong. Before starting  a program and beginning medical procedures, it is important to ensure the body of a surrogate is truly ready to carry a pregnancy.

Under the Law of Ukraine, a woman, who has a wish to become a surrogate mother, should meet the following criteria:

- be between 18-36 years old;

- to have at least one healthy born child;

- be mentally and physically health.

WHAT DO WE TEST THE SURROGATE FOR?

In order to guarantee the perfect mental and physical condition of the candidates, we perform their screening for: −

  • Critical infections (HIV, HBsAg, HCV, syphilis),
  • Alcohol, nicotine and drug tests,
  • Pelvic ultrasound, USG of mammary glands, thyroid gland and internal organs,
  • Hormones (prolactin, TSH, T4, TPOAb, TGAb),
  • Gynecologist examination, vaginal swab, PAP smear.
  • IgG, IgM, IgA to TORCH infections (Ureaplasma urealyticum, Mycoplasma hominis, CMV, herpes type I-II, Toxoplasma gondii and Chlamydia trachomatis),
  • Blood morphology and biochemy, coagulogram,
  • Psychologist and psychiatrist consultations,
  • Endocrinologist examination,
  • Consultation of therapist and ECG,
  • Fluorography.

THE PROGRAM OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT

The surrogate visits psychologists regularly, so we ensure the psychological environment for the baby is as comfortable as it is possible. Moreover, we work on maximal including the Intended Parents in the process of pregnancy: by speaking to the baby and the surrogate in person or by Skype, recording stories for the baby, etc. Our team of psychologists is ready to help the patients in case of need.
