How many babies have gone home on these packages?

Confirm the Price of Medication & Treatment:

Confirm the Price of Medication & Treatment Often medication and treatment is much cheaper in India. If it is cheaper in India, you may choose to do the entire IVF cycle in India, thereby spending more time in India, but spending less money.

Forward the Relevant Medical Information:

Forward the Relevant Medical Information At a minimum this will include a sperm analysis & culture and a STD screen as well as a note from your doctor confirming why you are needing to undertake surrogacy. If you are sending embryos, you must be able to show that a STD screen has occurred at the time of conception, if you are using your own eggs, more detailed information will be required from your treating specialist. You'll have to prepay some fees, likely via bank transfer as it is likely that surrogate preparation and or egg donor preparation will happen prior to your arrival.

Schedule a time to Begin your Surrogacy Treatment.:

Schedule a time to Begin your Surrogacy Treatment . If you are using your own eggs, it is likely that some of your treatment can occur at home, with egg collection in India. If you are using donor eggs, then your treatment time frame will be guided by when egg collection happens for your egg donor. http://www.seedartbank.com/surrogacy-process /

Plan your Travel to India:

Plan your Travel to India Please be aware that currently to undertake surrogacy in India you must apply for and travel on a Medical visa. If you are using donor eggs, or sending embryos from your home country you will only need to spend 3- 5 day in India. If you are using your own eggs, you will spend 5- 15 days in India.

Slide 9:

Prior to any treatment, on your first meeting with your treating doctor, discuss with the doctor how many embryos you are wanting to transfer. Most reputable clinics will only allow up to four embryos, but this will depend on the quality of the embryos. While this can increases the odds of a successful pregnancy, it also increases the odds of a multiple pregnancy. This is a very personal decision, but be aware that under the current laws gestational surrogates can only carry twins and a higher order pregnancy will result in a foetal reduction.

Slide 10:

On the day of egg collection, if you are using your own eggs, you will have minor surgery. Don't plan on doing much else that day - it is a relatively short procedure that does not require an overnight hospital stay. If you are using donor eggs, you may be required to supply a fresh sperm sample. Your fertility specialist should be able to provide you with a summary of how many eggs were collected; how many eggs fertilized; what embryos developed, the grading of your embryos and what was transferred to your gestational surrogate. You should also be provided with a date for your pregnancy test.

Slide 11:

If you are successful, Congratulations. You should be aware that as with any IVF process, this is a journey, on average it takes most clients up to three attempts to get and stay pregnant. Now you are pregnant, what is your clinics communication strategy? How do they keep in touch with you? What tests are undertaken? When to scans happen? What happens if things go wrong? These are questions that you should know the answers to before proceeding with treatment .

Picking up your Baby. :

Picking up your Baby . By the time this has happened, you should be aware of what the requirements are for your particular country and embassy to get citizenship and a passport for your baby. For most countries this requires a DNA test to confirm the genetic link to one parent by a DNA service approved by your Embassy. Irrespective of whether you use your own genetic material or donor eggs, both parents names will be on the birth certificate . Your clinic should have someone who is able to walk you though this process. For most countries this process takes between 2- 4 weeks .
