Medical evaluation – the intended couple (or individual) and surrogate meet with an IVF fertility doctor for a consultation.
Independent evaluation – An independent obstetric and mental evaluation of the surrogate and the intended parents may be required.
Counseling – for the intended parents, the surrogate, and her partner, as well as any genetic concerns.
Independent legal counsel – a formal certificate stating that both parties have been instructed on their rights and obligations is required.
IVF Ethics Committee – analyzes and approves all necessary information.
If the intended parent wants to use her own eggs, they will be gathered after an IVF treatment cycle and fertilized with her partner’s sperm. After that, the embryo will be implanted into the surrogate.
After the pregnancy has been confirmed, the clinic counsellor will continue to discuss and finalize birth plans.
Under the Surrogacy Bill 2010, the baby is assumed to be the child of the birth mother until the intended parents’ parentage order enters legal effect.
Surrogacy can come in a variety of forms.
When a fertilized embryo is implanted into a surrogate, it is known as gestational surrogacy. In this situation, the embryo was created through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with the egg and sperm of the intended parents or a third-party donor. In this case, the surrogate has made no genetic contribution.
Traditional surrogacy, which is less prevalent, involves the surrogate using her own eggs and the intended father’s sperm, which is usually done through insemination. This indicates that the surrogate and the kid she is carrying share a genetic relationship.
The price of surrogacy treatment will vary based on the specific agreement. During your initial medical consultation, we will go over these with you.
