Surrogacy

The couples that cannot have a child because the future mother does not have a uterus suitable for pregnancy or has no uterus at all have an embryo after their egg and sperm cells are fertilized in a laboratory. Then, this embryo is transferred to the uterus of another woman who agrees to be a surrogate mother. A child that was born by this method carries the genetics of his/her parents. There is no genetic link with the surrogate mother. The couples that receive treatment for surrogacy first start IVF therapy. Then, the retrieved eggs are fertilized with sperms. The fertilized embryo is then transferred to the surrogate mother.
Although it is difficult to determine the number of children that were born through a surrogate mother among newborn children in the world, the data of some countries is accessible. In this context, minimum 2.200 infants were born through a surrogate mother in the US in 2014. This figure is more than two times the number of children born in 2007. A large clinic that has become very popular among foreign people in India claims that they delivered more than 1000 infants through a surrogate mother between 2004 and 2015. When we even look at these figures, we could see that demand for giving birth to a child through a surrogate mother is increasingly growing.

Who could need a surrogate mother?

  • Women who congenitally have no uterus,
  • Patients whose uterus was surgically removed at an early age due to cancer or for any other causes,
  • Women that have congenital anomalies in the uterus,
  • Women that have myoma precluding pregnancy until due term,
  • Women that have a severe disease that threatens her life during pregnancy (for example, cardiac or renal diseases),
  • Women that have become pregnant many times but their pregnancy did not result in a live birth,
  • Women that have undergone an IVF therapy many times because of damaged endometrium or improper endometrium but could not achieve pregnancy,
  • The parent that wants to have a child may be a man or homosexual couple. In this case, a surrogate mother may be required to have a child without a woman in the family. In this case, oocytes or embryo have to be donated.

In different cases where there are different problems related to sperm or oocyte cells in addition to surrogacy method, it can also be possible to use sperm or egg donations other than a surrogate mother.

Why should I collaborate with an agency for surrogacy?

In order to further reduce the costs, some couples communicate with surrogate mothers through advertisements on the social media, or go to the countries where surrogacy is legal to directly contact with the surrogate mothers or persons who serve as an intermediary for surrogate mothers. Then, they make an agreement with the surrogate mother at a certain price to initiate surrogacy process. Unfortunately, many couples or very high number of couples that chose to use this method get conned by a fraudulent person or company before they can receive the promised service, or select a wrong surrogate mother, putting the infant’s life at risk.

 

Furthermore, in some cases the couples become frustrated when the woman chosen as the surrogate mother gives up giving the baby at the last moment after birth, and may face with a long and difficult legal process.

 

To avoid such risks from the very beginning, it is important for couples that want to have a child through a surrogate mother to work with a recognized, reputable and reliable intermediary agencies. An agency will assist the couples with following matters; they can

 

  • Perform a required medical control and select a surrogate mother among women that are psychologically and physically able to give heathy birth. Especially, a surrogate mother should be in the certain age interval, should not have any virus such as HIV and Hepatitis B that could adverse effects on the condition of baby, and should not use narcotic substances or drink alcoholic beverages.

 

  • There must be legal contract between the surrogate mother and the couple that stipulate to directly give the baby to the couple after birth in accordance with legislation of the country where service is received. This contract must be binding upon both parties (This contract sets out that surrogate mother has no rights in the baby, or all of her rights belong to the couple).

 

  • Carry out monthly controls of surrogate mother after she has achieved pregnancy to regularly check the condition of baby and surrogate mother, encouraging her to maintain a quality life.
The United States of America or Georgia for Surrogacy Service

Today, although many countries in the world provide surrogacy service, this service is under official state control only in a limited number of countries. The United States of America and Georgia are the countries where this service is under official state control. In both of the countries, the agencies that are highly specialized in this field provide a reliable and sound service to the couples that have waited long to have a child, so such agencies have acquired a strong position in this area. The governmentally secured legal contracts made between the surrogate mother and the couples that want to have a child ensure that child is given to the couples that receive surrogacy service.

One of the most important advantages to use surrogacy service in the US is that surrogacy system is a very advanced, established and ongoing service for years across the country. Both large number of surrogate mothers and a more conscious society make this service very attractive to receive it in the United States because the baby will be born in the USA and automatically become an American citizen.

On the other hand, the major advantage of receiving this service in Georgia is that service is provided at an affordable price. In the US, the average price is more than $50.000 whereas this price is reduced by two thirds in Georgia and reduced as much as $30.000-$35.000. In addition, it is also another advantage that Georgia is geographically very near Turkey, and the baby to be born will be carried by a surrogate mother whose culture is similar to Turkish culture.
