HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
According to medical advice and depending on the situation of each couple, surrogate pregnancy can involve: artificial insemination with semen from the future father, In Vitro Fertilisation with eggs from the surrogate mother, an egg donation process with donor’s eggs or double donation, with egg and semen from the donors. Whatever the assisted reproduction technique chosen, the most important factor is having a surrogate mother and a father, a mother or a couple who are intended parents who are of the same or different sex in order for the surrogate pregnancy to take place.
Fertysurrogacy are specialists in surrogate pregnancy with egg donation, and collaborate with one of the largest gamete banks in the world. Below, we explain the process step by step:
1. RECRUITMENT PROGRAMME
Fertysurrogacy will put you in touch with a legal advisor in order to sign the surrogate pregnancy programme and begin the process.
2. HEALTH CHECKS
An analytical phase where the state of health of the parents, genetic material of the sperm sample and other aspects are assessed.
3. DONOR SELECTION
To select the egg donor for the assisted reproduction treatment, you need to register at www.ovobankid.com and access the large catalogue of donors.
4. SURROGATE SELECTION
We undertake a rigorous process where the surrogate mother candidate is assessed. She must in a good state of physical and mental health and have given birth naturally to at least one child, amongst other factors. The role of the surrogate mother in this treatment is to carry and give birth to the baby.
5. IVF AND TRANSFER
For In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF), the egg donor must undergo an ovarian stimulation process in order to achieve a suitable quantity of eggs. Once mature eggs are obtained after ovarian drilling, embryo transfer is scheduled. For this purpose, the surrogate mother must undergo endometrial preparation in order to receive the embryo.
Ten days after the embryo transfer, the surrogate mother must attend a consultation to confirm the presence of Beta-hCG, the hormone indicating a pregnancy. Two weeks later, the specialist will perform the first ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy again.
7. PREGNANCY MONITORING
Fertysurrogacy provides you with all the facilities for monitoring the pregnancy in real time. Photographs, videos, daily video calls with specialists and the surrogate mother so that you are fully informed at all times. You can also visit the surrogate mother and stay at our facilities whenever you wish, with all the services and amenities.
The baby’s birth is the final part of the process and the most important. Our medical and legal time will be at your side from the beginning of the pregnancy to advise you on what you need for the journey home.
