Rajni Fertility Centre

If you are looking for an excellent IVF surrogacy program, you should know that Rajni fertility Centre has consistently been one of the best surrogacy clinics.

Surrogacy is the treatment of fertility in which a woman carries and delivers a baby for another couple.

Gestational Surrogacy: Egg from the intended mother is removed and is fertilized with the sperm of the intended father. This embryo or the fertilized egg is then transferred to a surrogate. Genetically, the child belongs to the intended couple. Surrogate only carries the child in her womb and gives birth.

What is IVF surrogacy?

IVF surrogacy uses a third party “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.” The gestational surrogate signs a contract with the intended parent or parents to undergo an embryo transfer procedure using embryos created through IVF and to carry the resulting pregnancy.

Why IVF surrogacy?

The main draw of IVF surrogacy for most couples is the ability to have a child who shares the genetics of both the mother and father, even when pregnancy is not possible for the woman. While we know that a biological link is not necessary for family bond, the natural desire to share your genetic heritage with your child is strong.

Some women are medically unable to carry a child to term, but are still able to produce healthy eggs. For some women, this is because they have a congenital problem with their uterus, or because it has been damaged by injury or disease, or removed by a hysterectomy. Some choose IVF surrogacy because they have undergone several unexplained pregnancy losses. Others may have been advised against attempting pregnancy due to other medical issues such as diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease. Whatever the specific circumstances of a case may be, using an IVF surrogate can offer hope for patients who have suffered repeated heartbreaking miscarriages or when other ART methods have failed.

Gestational surrogacy with IVF is less legally complex than traditional surrogacy because the surrogate is not genetically related to the baby, which makes it a more accessible and easy choice for many couples.

How are surrogates selected?

Choosing a surrogate is obviously a very important decision. Some fortunate patients have a close friend or family member who has offered to carry a pregnancy for them. Others advertise privately for a gestational surrogate, but most clients decide to go through an agency. A reputable agency can provide you profiles of carefully screened potential gestational surrogates, and guide you through the process of choosing the right surrogate. They should also be able to inform you of any legal considerations in your state concerning surrogacy, and even introduce you to a lawyer who can prepare the necessary contracts and paperwork.

Surrogates undergo strict screening to ensure that they are physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy enough to carry a pregnancy for a client couple without undue risk. The exact standards used may vary between agencies, but generally the attributes of an ideal gestational surrogate include:

  • • Between the ages of 21 and 40
  • • Healthy lifestyle (no smoking, substance abuse problems, healthy diet, etc)
  • • Has had at least one successful pregnancy, preferably with no complications and an easy delivery
  • • Has passed medical and psychological tests
How are surrogates selected?

At the beginning of the IVF surrogacy process, the biological/intended parents and the gestational surrogate will go through an assessment and laboratory tests with your clinic to make sure that you are all healthy and prepared both mentally and physically, and that there are no sexually transmitted diseases that could damage potential embryos or be given to the surrogate during the embryo transfer. From here the process is relatively simple:

  • • The biological mother (who is providing the eggs) and the gestational surrogate will take medication to synchronize their menstrual cycles.
  • • Once the cycles are synchronized, the egg provider will begin her IVF protocol to stimulate her ovaries for egg production.
  • • The egg provider will undergo an egg retrieval procedure.
  • • At the same time, the gestational surrogate will begin taking supplemental progesterone to prepare her uterine lining for pregnancy.
  • • When the embryos are ready, one or more will be transferred to the surrogate’s uterus.
  • • In two weeks, the surrogate will take a pregnancy test to determine whether implantation was successful.
  • • If pregnancy occurs, the surrogate will be monitored by the IVF clinic until the pregnancy is 10 to 12 weeks along, at which point her care is transferred to an OB.
  • • When the pregnancy is complete, the surrogate delivers the baby.
  • • The baby goes home with its intended, biological parents.

Sometimes, the biological mother undergoes her IVF cycle some time before, and the resulting embryos are frozen for later transfer to the gestational surrogate, in which case the timelines can differ.
