Surrogacy is one of the most controversial and controversial reproductive technologies. On the one hand, it allows infertile parents or single men and women to have a child of their own. On the other hand, there are many moral and legal issues and claims relating to surrogacy.
Complexities of surrogacy
Surrogacy is one of the most complicated IVF procedures. The difficulties are not only in the selection of a woman for surrogacy, but also in the legal aspects of the process. Practice shows that every surrogacy case should be treated individually and only with the help of professional lawyers.
Independent selection of a surrogate does not guarantee successful completion of the program and is fraught with such risks as a woman falsifying health certificates, extorting money, or refusing to give up her child after birth. And the woman herself, who carried someone else’s baby under such conditions, is unprotected, for example, in case the biological parents refuse to take the child.
For these reasons, it is much safer to apply to our clinic, which specializes in surrogacy services. They will not only help to find a suitable surrogate, but also provide legal support for the entire period of the program.
Despite the difficulties that may arise when using this reproductive technology, the demand for surrogacy is constantly growing. First, it is promoted by minimizing the risks of giving birth to an unhealthy child. This is ensured by careful selection and detailed examination of a potential surrogate’s health.
Criteria for Choosing a Surrogate
One of the main criteria in finding a surrogate mother is the price of services. In each case, it is determined individually and depends on such factors as the region of residence, the woman’s social status, the amount of her remuneration, the degree of security during pregnancy, the cost of medical care and delivery, and a number of other criteria.
Besides, there is a list of medical requirements for a woman wishing to become a surrogate mother. As a rule, it includes:
- Excellent health with no chronic or hereditary diseases. Prior to admission to the program, a woman undergoes a complete medical examination for diseases and pathologies.
- Normal body weight. Excess or deficiency of weight is not allowed.
- Absence of bad habits.
- Use of some methods of contraception.
- Legally stipulated the interval from 20 to 35 years, but advantage is given to women under the age of 30 years.
- A stable psychological condition. Carrying another woman’s child can be associated with an increased mental stress, when a woman must resist her maternal instinct.
- Having at least one healthy child of her own.
It is possible to look for a surrogate on your own, but it is better to do it with the help of the clinic where the conception is planned. Searching for a surrogate through an advertisement is not safe. As a rule, women seeking to become surrogate mothers send their applications directly to clinics, where they find infertile couples.
Underpriced ads may be placed by scammers to extort money. In addition, the cost of services in such ads says nothing about a woman’s health.
