What is infertility?

Infertility is clinically defined for both women and men as the failure to achieve pregnancy after 1 year of regular sexual intercourse without the use of birth control, and for women who have had two or more failed pregnancies.

A variety of medical conditions and factors can contribute to fertility issues. Each case is individual and may have a single attributable cause, several, or—in some cases—no identifiable cause at all.

  • One-third of infertility cases are caused by male reproductive issues;
  • One-third are caused by female reproductive issues;
  • One-third are caused by both male and female reproductive issues or by unknown factors;

What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction whereby intended parents use the help of a gestational surrogate to carry and nurture their baby until birth. Intended parents use surrogacy to start or grow their families when they can not do so on their own. The surrogacy process can be complex; working with an experienced agency helps to navigate the peaks and valleys during a surrogacy journey and offers support when you need it most.

Surrogacy Program Options

Many surrogacy program options are available, as one does not fit all or work for every couple or person. This is why it is so important to have an in-depth assessment in advance of program selection and starting the surrogacy process.

Be Parent has supported many parents throughout their reproductive journeys using In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) combined with surrogacy. We understand that as you weigh your options, it’s essential to understand how the IVF process works. Intended mothers and fathers are assessed by our experienced IVF clinicians and are prescribed the best treatment path to create embryos using their own gametes. This involves egg stimulation, collection and fertilization using the male partner’s sperm.

Frozen Embryo Transfer & Surrogacy

Frozen Embryo Transfer (FET) involves thawing an embryo frozen from a previous IVF cycle and transferring it to the uterus of a surrogate carrier. Gestational surrogates require a cycle of medical preparation before undergoing a frozen embryo transfer in order to achieve pregnancy.

Prior to this procedure, she will be asked to meet with a fertility specialist to ensure she has passed all screening checkpoints and 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 receive (e.g. medication and it’s application and effects), as well as the the risks of the procedure and post-transfer recommendations.

Egg Donation and Surrogacy

There are many factors that can affect your ability to produce healthy eggs or carry a baby to term. Selecting an egg donor can be an emotional decision. It is not valued as simply a component of your fertility program, it is a decision that will have a significant impact on your family and your future child. Be Parent egg donor screening processes ensure that only healthy, capable, and informed egg donors are accepted into our programs. This keeps success rates high so we can consistently provide the best results for our intended families.

Egg donors can be both anonymous or open (directed):

Anonymous donor: An anonymous donor is a healthy female between the age of 21-29 who is interested in assisting a couple in achieving their dream of parenthood. In this scenario, both the donor and the recipient couple’s identities are protected. An anonymous donor is chosen by reviewing donor profiles, with the help of our donor coordinator, who helps you make a match that best meets your needs and criteria.

Open or Directed donor: An open donor is someone you are able to meet and keep contact with if mutually desired. Once a donor is chosen, the post eligibility screening processes begin. All of our donors, whether anonymous or directed, are thoroughly screened before being eligible to participate in our programs.
