Surrogacy is a treatment where a woman (the surrogate mother) agrees to bear a child for another couple or individual ( intended parents). The couple will become the child’s parent(s) after birth.
In surrogacy treatment, the eggs of an infertile woman are fertilized with her husband’s sperm, and the resulting embryos are transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus. The couple whose embryos are transferred is called intended parents (IP). The surrogate woman is not genetically related to the embryos transferred to her.
Surrogacy can be done using donor eggs, donor sperm also, but there has to be genetic material from at least one intended parent.
The surrogate mother carries the pregnancy and, after birth, hands over the child to the intended parents.
Your surrogate mother may be a family member, friend, or compensated or uncompensated volunteer.

How does IVF work with the involvement of a surrogate mother?
After meeting the genetic parents and the surrogate mother, and they agree to work together, they enter into a legal agreement.
Menstrual cycles of an Intended parent and surrogate mother are matched.
Treatment for surrogate mother.
The surrogate mother is given an injection that will stop her egg production for a month, and this ensures the embryo that will implant is from the intended parents (IP) only.
Tablets are started for a surrogate to prepare the uterus for embryo implantation.
When embryos of IP are ready, they are transferred into her uterus.
Treatment of intended parents IP.
IVF injections are started in the female partner of IP.
Ovum pick up is done, and the recovered oocytes are fertilized with sperm of the male partner of IP.
The resulting embryos are transferred to the surrogate mother.
All advanced techniques to improve IVF results like blastocyst culture, ICSI etc., can be used.
How we select a surrogate mother
The surrogate mothers that are young, healthy and have normal screening are recruited. All potential surrogate mothers are married and have at least one living child.
We check the surrogate’s medical, family and personal history. We also check that the surrogate’s weight, height and blood pressure are within normal limits.
The doctor performs an exhaustive medical check-up to check the good overall health of the surrogate. Our fertility experts do a 3D ultrasound to check for any abnormality in the uterus and any other reproductive or gynaecological condition.
Eligible surrogates undergo blood tests for complete blood counts, blood sugar and tests to assess liver, kidney, and general health.
Blood tests to rule out STDs are done.
Our in-house team takes an in-depth personal interview of the surrogate. We evaluate that surrogate understands the process and evaluate their ability to understand and concentrate. We also involve her whole family and make sure that the whole family also understands the process and is ready to cooperate.
