On the day of your arrival to Ukraine (or on the next day) you’ll consult our fertility specialist who’ll provide you with full and detailed information about the possible kinds of infertility treatment, necessary medical checkups and tests (generally, it presupposes transvaginal US for woman, sperm analysis for man and Complete Blood Count for both spouses), get acquainted with the surrogate’s portfolio (medical history, family etc). First visit is obligatory for both spouses. Male might donate his sperm which later will be used for the fertilization.
- Signing of the surrogacy agreement
Our lawyers will help you to legalize all the documentation required for the program. Surrogacy agreements regulate the co-operation of all the members of the surrogacy process: reproductive center, surrogacy agency, intended parents and surrogate mother. After the agreements signature and first payment for the program our fertility specialist starts the patient’s ovarian stimulation and medical preparation of the surrogate.
Speaking about you, ovarian stimulation might be performed domiciliary under the control of your gynecologist.
Medical preparation of a surrogate mother presupposes the preparation of her uterine endometrium for the further embryo transfer using such hormonal medicines like Estradiol, Progesterone (Progynova, Utrogestan) which provoke maturation of endometrium. Synchronization might be also conducted in the natural cycle. During this stage of treatment constant check of hormonal level in blood, US monitoring of endometrium and surrogate’s ovaries are conducted.
During your second visit intake and preparation of the reproductive material for the further IVF procedure is performed.
Preparation of the sperm cells presupposes its intake in the process of ejaculation, further examination and separation from the seminal fluid and other impurities, selection of the most mobile sperm cells of high quality which are eligible for the fertilization. If it’s impossible to conduct sperm intake and follicle puncture at the same day, sperm cryopreservation is used.
Ovarian puncture and in-vitro fertilization. Under anaesthetic during the ovarian puncture eggs necessary for the further fertilization are received. At the same day they are fertilized with your partner’s sperm cells or intra cytoplasmic sperm injection (method of ICSI) is used. For nearly 3-5 days embryos are cultivated in the lab. Judging on their amount and quality, embryologist defines the most favourable time for their transfer and inform you about the date your surrogate should visit the reproductive center for performing this procedure. As a rule, it’s the 5th day after the ovarian puncture but in some cases it might be on the 2nd-4th day.
For the successful result of the IVF procedure, embryologist selects the best embryos and together with you defines their amount for the transfer (not more than 3 according to our legislation). Using a special catheter embryos are introduced in the surrogate’s uterus under the US control. Transferring more than one embryo, multiple pregnancy is possible. The rest embryos of high quality are cryo-preservated (freezed) – cost of this procedure is included to the total price of the program. In one hour of keeping calm, surrogate mother can return home.
After embryo transfer, surrogate mother continues to intake the medicines prescribed by the fertility specialists which she gets at the reproductive center. Pregnancy might be tested on the 12-14th day after the in-vitro due to HGC test or on the 21st day using US. During all this time we’ll keep in touch with you and inform about all the results.
During the 12-18th weeks of pregnancy, surrogate mother is registered at the antenatal clinic domiciliary under our control. It provides the systematical monitoring of the surrogate’s pregnancy since the early terms. Generally, during nine month of pregnancy, surrogate visit antenatal clinic 13-14 times: once per month till the 28th week, twice till the 37th weeks and each 7-10 days before the childbirth. We’ll provide you with full information about each visit (results of the checkups, tests and US).
On the 22nd week of pregnancy you can come here for the planned fetus’ US. At this term you can already see the eye-browns and hair of your child which grows so quick but still not too bright because of the melamine low level. Baby’s brain is already enough developed to do these or those movements and move fingers. Now he touches his body and placenta and, in such a way, discovers the inner world. Due to the high intensity of the movements, you’ll see the first movements of hands and legs of your child.
According to the US results, gynecologist predicts the date of childbirth. Orienting at this date, you have time to prepare all the things you should take to the maternity home and come here in time before the most important day of your life – birth of such a desired baby!
