Selecting an Egg Donor/Surrogate Mother
In case you need an egg donor for your program, you can access the donor database and choose donor of your choice. Your case manage will help you in matching donor profile for you. You can choose local donor or Caucasian donor from our partner agency.
We will provide you list of tests to confirm your eligibility medically. You can do these tests in your city, and send scan copy for review of fertility specialist. Please note that in case, you are using an egg donor and surrogate mother, only male partner need to do Pre- IVF tests. If you are self-cycling, then both partner will be asked to complete tests. These may include hormone level tests for self-cycles, scans for ED IVF cycles, blood types, infectious disease screens and semen analysis.
One of essential requirement of surrogacy program is to complete paper work to ensure your rights and surrogate rights. To save time and money, agency/lawyer can make your specific Surrogacy Contract and email/fax/courier for your signature. Once reviewed and signed, you can bring signed copy with you while travelling for IVF cycle. Please note that in case you are using egg donor, you also need to sign separate Egg Donor Contract.
Once contracts are signed, the Intended Parents are required to make the first payment as per your specific price list. It is advised to discuss price and cost break down in advance with your case manager.
Preparation and synchronization
As soon as we receive first payment, tests and preparation/synchronization of your cycle with donor or that of your egg donor with the surrogate begin. Generally it takes 6 weeks to complete synchronization and start the stimulation protocol. If you are self cycling then you will receive clear instruction to start fertility medication and elaborated schedule will be provided to you before coming for egg pick up.
IVF and Pregnancy Test
Once you visit surrogacy country, you will be meeting local team, doctor, donor, and surrogate. IVF specialist will discuss your program with you along with date of egg pick up. IVF is done and embryos are implanted in your surrogate motherâ€™s uterus, she will be kept on luteal support for 2 weeks. A blood test is done after 2 weeks to confirm pregnancy. Once pregnancy confirmed and gestational sac and heart beat is seen, you will be getting regular update of surrogacy progress.
Surrogate Pregnancy Care
Throughout her pregnancy, the surrogate is closely monitored by our IVF team. Her routine blood tests and scans, check-ups will be shared with you. If you wish, you can also have skype meeting with surrogate mother. Surrogate receives monthly compensation and doctor closely monitors her progress in coming months.
The estimated date of delivery is discussed with you so that you are present at the time of delivery. In case surrogate goes in premature labor pain, you will be notified, and if Cesarean is necessary, it will be discussed with you. Once baby is born, baby birth certificate is given, which will further initiate process of applying for baby passport and subsequent baby exit.
Baby Exit Process
