Surrogacy – An Assisted Reproductive Technology

Surrogacy is one of the most preferred procedure of giving birth to a baby for intended parents with the help of surrogate (women) who carries and gives birth to a baby in case they are unable to have a child despite basic and advanced fertility treatments.  surrogacy as an assisted reproductive technology is mainly preferred by the woman who has the following issues-

At  Kiran Infertility Centre we are offering several basic and advanced fertility treatments like surrogacy.

Whilst the concept of Surrogacy has been seen around for a long time and dates back to biblical times, the concept of medical surrogacy as we know today is the outcome of in-vitro fertilization.

Gestational surrogacy is a procedure in which an embryo created through IVF technology is implanted in surrogate sometimes called gestational carrier. Gestational surrogacy allows many intended mothers to be related to their children. Intended parents who have remaining embryos from past IVF treatments can use those in gestational surrogacy at the kiran infertility centre.

There are usually three important phases in the gestational surrogacy procedure such as-
·        Egg donation that involves egg donor undergoing a series of the treatment procedure to extract some eggs.

·        Fertilization where the egg is fertilized with semen in the laboratory.

·        Transfer of the fertilized egg into the womb of the surrogate mother.

Steps taken during surrogacyA brief introduction

The screening of surrogate forms the basic foundation of the surrogacy technique where the surrogate undergoes thorough medical and psychological evaluations. Psychological interviews are carried out to determine that the Surrogate Mother is mentally healthy and is capable of following the protocols provided to her in due course of becoming a surrogate mother.

at Kic under the supervision of eminent doctors and psychologists ensure that the surrogate mother is not subjected to any pressure or coercion to become a surrogate.

The concerned surrogate mother is then required to undergo blood tests for determining the existence of sexually transmitted diseases and or any other communicable diseases. A variety of hormone tests and other pathological and biochemical tests are performed.

Such a variety of tests are required to screen for infection with Chlamydia, Urea Plasma, Gonococcus and other infective organisms that might interfere with a successful surrogacy outcome. Once the surrogate mother is deemed fit in terms of Medical, Physical and Psychological fitness she is then formally inducted into the Surrogacy Program.
