It is an unbelievable feeling when you hold your baby. Our son was also born in Ukraine through surrogacy). Previously we were dealing with infertility long 3 years. Due to a number of failed IVF attempts, my husband and I made the decision to investigate surrogacy and joined Surrogacy in Ukrainian. The clinic was quite ok for such price (around 30,000 euros for everything). It was some cons but it wasn
t so huge. Lines to the doctors office were really exhausted but we were ready to do everything at that time. Believe me, temporary unpleasantness you forgot when you will see your newborn baby. The big advantage of the Ukrainian surrogacy is its legality.
I have been through surrogacy in Bio tex, Ukraine and I can say that the feeling is so fulfilling.
Many intended parents who choose surrogacy do so because they’re struggling with infertility, either because of genetics, because they’re a same-sex couple who cannot have children on their own, or because they are single. The disappointment and stigma of infertility can be harsh, which is why surrogacy gives parents a chance to overcome these issues and successfully have biological children. Raising a child from birth: Surrogacy gives intended parents the chance to not only raise their child from the moment they’re born but also actively be involved in the pregnancy. Not all adoptions can offer the same advantages. Being involved every step of the way: Intended parents are able to be a part of every milestone of their surrogate pregnancy, from embryo transfer to their child’s birth. This way, intended parents can experience the pregnancy process in a way they may have never originally dreamed they could. Building a special relationship with the surrogate: While surrogacy is technically a business transaction, it’s much more to intended parents and surrogates. Usually, intended parents will form an intimate bond with their surrogate as they learn more about her and her family throughout the surrogacy process.
Just superb, hun, I’m so happy for you!! May your tiny ladies come to this world healthy and happy.
You’ve had enough, luv, god love you poor thing with your cancer sufferings…But god blessed you. I know the situation with surrogacy in Japan. In my opinion it shouldn’t be banned as it gives hope of parenthood for so many infertile couples! But the things are like they are. This is nice you chose Ukraine as destination. Friends of mine passed surrogacy there 2 yrs ago and were blessed with a lovely baby girl. We asked more how the process went for them there and realized there were super options at the clinic for our case. So we started research on ivf with donor egg there and soon found ourselves at the same biotex like them. We tried 2 shots with own egg home first but never got success. We put in yrs and huge money sums with no luck ever! That was frustrating to get to know we could save double price if went to biotex from the very begining!! This struggling is a huge investment always. We were lucky to get our baby after 2 shots with them. Then thought we wanted more kids. So currently are back to the process for a sibling with the same clinic. Wish me good luck.
Hi lovelies! Have found this recently on the internet. Thought it might be useful for those looking seriously onto surrogacy. Questions to ask your clinic~
How long has the program been in operation? Does the program maintain a referral listing of previous client couples? Does the program recruit its own surrogates? Through what means? Will they work with a surrogate recruited by the couple themselves? How are surrogates expenses handled? Is there a cap on these expenses? Does the program offer medical screening of the surrogate? To what extent? Who does the screening? Does medical screening include an AIDS test of surrogate and her partner? Is gestational surrogacy (also called surrogate IVF, host uterus) as well as traditional surrogacy available? What are the costs of surrogacy (traditional, gestational or donor)? What is the fee payment structure? What are the financial obligations incurred by the couple? What is the payment schedule? How long are the surrogate’s medical records kept? Does the program offer psychological screening and counseling to all parties? To what extent? Does the program offer on-site medical services (insemination or IVF) or do they work with local physicians and hospitals? How many babies have been born through the agency/clinic’s surrogacy programs? To what extent is contact between the surrogate and the couple encouraged? (By letter, meeting face-to-face, on-going?) Can the couple be present at the birth? What type of legal counsel is offered to the surrogate and the couple? Does this include the drawing up of contracts?
Which country is better to go? Recently Ukraine has become the best destination. This is 'cause of the surrogacy friendly law there. IP are considered to be the only legal parents of the baby from the moment of conception! The surro has no right to keep the baby after delivery. Then affordable prices. You might opt for 2 shots program for 39k euros. Or ‘‘guaranteed’’ 5 shots (unlimited number of attempts) for 49k euros. The clinic we’ve been with has its packages all inclusive. Meaning you’ll have all meds needed included into the package price. All legal support. Donor eggs (if needed) for no extra fee. Surro mother choice from their large database. You might also get ther special ‘‘guarantee’’. meaning you’re given 5 shots. if you fail to conceive within those 5 rounds, they’ll refund money back. (the point is that you’ll get a baby no matter how many attempts is needed for that). There are many repro centers in Ukraine. But I 'll definitely recommend Bio texcom. 'Cause I have personal experience with it. Attarctive sets of services. All inclusive plans. ‘‘Guaranteed’’ options. Large donor/surro database. 70% success rate. Legal support. The best experienced team. Affordable prices. How long it takes to find sm? - It depends on the package you sign up for. If it’s VIP it will take up to 3-4 wks to find the right surro for you. It won’t take you yrs. 'Cause a lot of women participate in the programs there. Some surros come back to the clinic for more programs.
Surrogacy legislation in both countries we were opting (Georgia and Ukraine) is quite favourable for IP. They have specific set of laws to protect IPs’ rights and the rights of SM. Intended mother provides medical certificate proving her disability to carry pregnancy on her own. Restrictions for SMs are also set by law: Age 18-39. Being absolutely healthy and having at least one healthy child.
What we liked is that SM has no right to change her mind and keep the baby after delivery. IPs are considered to be biological parents of the child. Birth certificate is issued with the names of IPs as parents, no name of SM mentioned. It was very important for us.
Then considering the contract conditions and fees. I found reproductive clinics’ directory on the web with their contact info and websites. Some websites provided service and price info, some didn’t, so I had to email them. The prices were different. The same were the conditions. When considering surrogacy fees, one should ask consultant if the price is final and what extra fees are, if any. Also the number of attempts they provide. Also if medications are covered by your contract. Some clinics assign lower price. But then it is actually doubled with costs of all medications needed. We decided to proceed with Ukrainian clinics, based on positive reviews and surrogacy experience in this country. Besides it was cheaper and quicker for us to travel to Ukraine.
