If you suffer from infertility, and still have decided to become a parent – this article is for you!
Before discussing surrogacy programs, let’s first understand what infertility is and how it can lead to surrogacy.
What is infertility?
Infertility is defined clinically in women and men who cannot achieve pregnancy after 1 year of having intercourse without using birth control, and in women who have two or more failed pregnancies.
Many different medical conditions and other factors can contribute to fertility problems, and an individual case may have a single cause, several causes, or—in some cases—no identifiable cause. Overall:
- One-third of infertility cases are caused by male reproductive issues;
- One-third by female reproductive issues;
- One-third by both male and female reproductive issues or by unknown factors.
Surrogacy- the new way of becoming a parent
What is Surrogacy?
Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction where intended parents work with a gestational surrogate who will carry and care for their baby or babies until birth. Intended parents use surrogacy to start or grow their families when they can not do so on their own. While it’s relatively simple to understand “What is surrogacy?”, the process of surrogacy seems to be a bit more involved. The surrogacy process can be complex, and working with an experienced agency like Be Parent helps to navigate the milestones and provides support when you need it most.
There are several surrogacy programs, but not all work for every couple or person. That’s why it is so important to get more information about these programs in detail before starting the surrogacy process.
If you’re thinking about having a baby through surrogacy, Be Parent can help you to understand the surrogacy programs that are available.
Here they are:
- IVF & Surrogacy (with own eggs)
- FET & Surrogacy
- Basic Donation and Surrogacy
- Live Birth Donation & Surrogacy
- 12th Week Guaranteed Pregnancy – Donation & Surrogacy
It is very important that you know every detail of each program in order to decide which one is suitable for you! In this article, you will be able to get all the information you need about each program. We are here for you! Let’s get started:
IVF & Surrogacy (with own eggs)
IVF surrogacy uses a third-part “gestational surrogate” to carry the pregnancy when a patient is unable to carry a baby to term herself. The gestational surrogate may also be called the “gestational carrier” or “gestational mother”. Be Parent has helped many parents through their reproductive journeys by counseling them in their decision to pursue In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) combined with surrogacy. We understand that as you weigh your options, it’s essential to understand how the IVF surrogacy process works. It’s also important to recognize this choice comes with a number of considerations, but our team is here to help you find your path when it comes to your fertility and your well-being by answering any questions you have around this process. The gestational surrogate signs a contract with the intended parents to undergo an embryo transfer procedure using embryos created through IVF and to carry the resulting pregnancy.
FET & Surrogacy
Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) involves the use of thawed embryos that were frozen in a previous IVF Cycle and transfer this embryo into the uterus of the surrogate. A surrogate is required to undergo a Frozen Embryo Transfer cycle in order to achieve a pregnancy.
Prior to this procedure, she will be asked to meet with a Fertility specialist to ensure she is medically suitable for the surrogacy program. The surrogate will also be asked to attend an information session with a fertility coordinator. During this session, she will be informed about the type of treatment she will undergo (e.g. medication), the risks of the procedure and the pregnancy, lifestyle recommendations, and other requirements.
Basic Donation and Surrogacy
There are many factors that can affect your ability to produce healthy eggs or carry a baby to term. In these situations, Be Parent Fertility Services offer comprehensive egg donation and surrogacy service.
You have to take into account that choosing an egg donor is an emotional process. It can not be considered as just part of your fertility program, it is a decision that will have a significant impact on your family and your future baby. Be Parent Egg donor screening process ensures that only healthy, capable, and informed egg donors are accepted into our database. This keeps our success rates high so we can consistently provide results for our families.
If you wish to identify an egg donor, you have two options:
Anonymous donor: An anonymous donor is a healthy female between the age of 21-29 who is interested in assisting a couple to achieve their dream of having a baby. In this scenario, both the donor’s and the recipient couple’s identities are protected. An anonymous donor is chosen by reviewing profiles from Be Parent pool of donors, with the help of a donor coordinator, who helps you make a match that best meets your needs.
Directed donor: A directed donor is someone you will meet and who is interested in assisting you in having a baby.
Once a donor is chosen, the screening process begins. All of our donors, whether anonymous or directed, are thoroughly screened through the same process as surrogates.
Live Birth Donation & Surrogacy
