Surrogate Mother

When a woman is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term, a Fully-Vetted Surrogate Mother can help. A surrogate mother has no biological link to the baby she gives birth to for the Intended Parents. Gestational surrogacy helps couples realize their dream of having a biologically connected baby of their own.

Gestational Surrogacy may be achieved in a variety of IVF protocols using:

  • Intended mother’s eggs
  • Donor eggs
  • Intended father’s sperm
  • Donor sperm

IVF Protocols

IVF Process

After the perfect match between intended parents and their surrogate has been finalized, the next step is to begin the IVF process with a fertility specialist.

  • The menstrual cycles of the intended mother and surrogate mother are synchronized through medications suppressing their natural hormone production
  • Replacement hormones are administered to mimic the stages of a normal cycle in a controlled manner using estrogen and progesterone
  • The intended mother then undergoes a series of fertility medication to stimulate her egg follicle growth and induce the maturation of several eggs for surgical retrieval
  • Through IVF, the intended mother’s eggs are retrieved and fertilized with the intended father’s sperm in vitro (in a lab)
  • Once the resulting embryos have developed to a quality stage in a controlled laboratory, a predetermined number are transferred to the gestational mother’s uterus for implantation
  • The surrogate mother then carries the pregnancy to full term
  • The intended parents are intimately involved with the pregnancy and are present at the birth of the baby to assume parenting responsibilities
