Surrogacy Treatment and Process
Surrogacy Treatments In India and globally has produced a much feasible option upfront to all those couples who were earlier been struggling with their “parenting dreams “just because of their infertility issues. Within the past few years, everyone form common people to celebrities have opted for high end surrogacy options in order to bring that little smile at their backyard.
Surrogacy treatments comes as an arrangement where a surrogate mother agrees to carry a baby for the intended parents in her womb either for monetary compensation or for free. When we talk about its various aspects, there are two types of Surrogacy arrangements i.e Traditional surrogacy and Gestational surrogacy.
Traditional surrogacy comes as a surrogacy arrangement where the surrogate mother is been artificially inseminated with the semen of the intended father and this case scenario, she will be biologically connected with the born child. On the other side, Gestational surrogacy is a surrogacy arrangement where the eggs and sperm derived from the intended parents are mixed in a lab dish and once it develops into an embryo, the same gets implanted into the womb of the surrogate mother. On the other side, Gestational surrogacy is more popular than the traditional surrogacy as here the surrogate mother won’t be having any genetic connection with the born child and both the parents will be biologically connected with the future child.
Surrogates are required to submit a pre-screen application which will either pre-qualify or disqualify them as potential surrogates.
The surrogate will be required to submit documentation, including recent photos her home, insurance cards, and a valid driver’s license.
Surrogates will need to submit their medical history and pregnancy medical records for review by a reproductive endocrinologist.
A surrogacy contract will be drafted and signed by both parties to officially begin the surrogacy journey.
Surrogates will fill out an initial surrogacy application consisting of approximately fifty questions about their background, pregnancy history, obstetrical/gynecological information, and spousal information.
Psychological Evaluation & Background Check
We will conduct a psychological evaluation consisting of a PAI personality test to ensure that the surrogate is prepared to handle the pregnancy. In addition, the surrogate and her spouse/live-in partner (if applicable) will undergo a background check to ensure that they have no prior convictions that could negatively impact the surrogacy process.
We will propose a match based on the criteria the surrogate and the intended parents provide, and a phone call will be arranged for the surrogate to connect with the proposed intended parents. If both parties would like to continue working together after the call, they will move on to the contract phase of the process.
