Surrogacy has been regulated in Georgia since 1997, and since then, the country has become a desirable destination for IVF programs, surrogacy and egg donation for parents-to-be all over the world. As surrogacy isn’t legal in many countries of countries, we host patients from all around the world.
In gestational surrogacy, an egg is removed from the intended mother or an anonymous donor and fertilized with the sperm of the intended father or anonymous donor. The fertilized egg, or embryo, is then transferred to a surrogate who carries the baby to term. The child is thereby genetically related to the woman who donated the egg and the intended father or sperm donor, but not the surrogate.
How the surrogacy process is done?
1. An appropriate surrogate is chosen and thoroughly screened for infectious and genetic diseases. The age should be between 20 to 36 years, the surrogate mother must meet all requirements, like being physically and mentally healthy, nonsmoker, follow a healthy lifestyle.
2. Consents and agreements are signed by all parties. This is an important step in surrogacy cases.
3. The potential mother or egg donor is stimulated for IVF with medications to develop multiple eggs.
4. The surrogate is placed on medications that suppress her own menstrual cycle and stimulate the development of a receptive uterine lining.
5. When the patient's or egg donor's follicles are mature, an egg retrieval procedure is performed to remove eggs from her ovaries.
6. The eggs are fertilized in the laboratory with the Intended Father's sperm.
7. The embryos develop in the laboratory for 5 days.
8. Then, an embryo transfer procedure is done which places the embryos in the surrogate mother's uterus where they should implant.
9. If the surrogate mother is pregnant, she must be constantly examined by a coordinating doctor and do all medical tests needed.
10. The surrogate delivers the baby.
How long does the surrogacy process take?
The entire journey typically takes around 15 to 18 months and consists of three separate parts. The first is the time to find a match with a surrogate.
After a match, an in-person screening is needed at the IVF clinic; a contract needs to be negotiated and a trust account established, and the surrogate begins medications. This part of the process should take about two months.
Finally, once a surrogate is pregnant, the gestation period is hopefully nine months. The other time consideration is the embryo creation process, whether that involves an intended mother having an egg retrieval herself or matching with an egg donor.
The embryo-creation process will take two to three months and can run concurrently with the surrogate search and match phase of the process. Or some intended parents choose to create embryos first and then begin the search for a surrogate.
All surrogate mothers have their own coordinator from our agency and they keep daily contact with them to monitor the pregnancy process. We are happy to provide all reports done during pregnancy to intended parents and enable them to be aware of the full process.
