Gestational surrogacy is a treatment option for women who are not able to carry pregnancy to a full term for a variety of reasons. These reasons could be medical reasons such as genetic disorders, being born without a uterus, uterine defects or post-operation uterine damage as well as other medical conditions that can put the woman’s own life at risk with pregnancy. There are also non-medical reasons for wanting to use a surrogate mother to have a child. Another group of patients who will need a surrogate mother are same-sex couples, more precisely, gay men.
Our surrogacy program works in a dual phase where surrogate recruitment, all the legal work, contract drafting, court proceedings as well as baby delivery take place in the United States in a surrogate friendly state. For gay surrogacy contracts, your surrogate will need to be recruited not only in a surrogate friendly state, but also a gay surrogacy friendly state.
Gestational surrogacy requires a number of considerations:
1- Recruiting a gestational surrogate who will be willing to carry pregnancy to a full term. Our surrogates are all American citizens who are recruited from surrogate friendly states. We only use surrogates who have previously given birth to their own children to make sure that they are fit for pregnancy and that they can get pregnant.
2- Drafting a legal contract to protect all parties involved against unwanted disputes. The contract will make sure that your surrogate accepts that she has no parental rights over your baby and that she is responsible for your baby’s well-being all throughout pregnancy and her duties toward the baby are terminated once delivery takes place. The contract will also design your responsibilities toward your surrogate mother.
3- IVF treatment and Medical issues. Each IVF treatment is unique and different in itself. Our patient coordinators and medical team will make sure you are provided with the medical assistance that you require for your treatment.
4- Child delivery and picking up your child from the United States. Our lawyers and coordinators will ensure that delivery of your child runs smoothly and well coordinated.
