Surrogacy and Gestational Surrogacy

What Is Surrogacy?

Many couples choose to grow their biological child in another woman’s womb, often because of a medical constraint or predisposition. In a surrogacy arrangement, a surrogate lends her uterus to a couple as she grows their baby for them. Surrogacy is suited for couples where the female partner exhibits a weak uterus, has existing medical conditions or has a history of implantation failures. Women who plan to become single parents can also opt for surrogacy. On Cloudnine, surrogacy arrangements are strictly governed by an upstanding, ethical protocol. At the outset, a surrogate is mandatorily asked to sign a contract-cum-consent form with Cloudnine.

Why Choose Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a promising route to pregnancy for couples who have been unable to carry a baby to term on their own.

Carefully Handpicked

All our surrogates are carefully selected based on a stringent series of fertility criteria, with the most significant being age. Members of our surrogacy pool are all young, fit and healthy.

Fertility Record

All our surrogates have produced at least one healthy child in the past. Further, a surrogate’s pregnancy potential is reviewed by a spate of scans and blood tests.

Medical Screening

As a first step, a selected surrogate is screened for infections like HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis.

Is Surrogacy Right for Me?

There are several potential reasons why you may be advised to opt for a surrogacy programme. If you have been diagnosed with an unconducive uterus, surrogacy may augment your chances of pregnancy. Similarly, if you have struggled with implantation in the past, surrogacy offers you a haven to grow an embryo to term. Alternatively, your doctor may recommend surrogacy if you have medical or surgical conditions due to which carrying a pregnancy can pose a risk to your health or life. Surrogacy is also a valid path to single parenthood.

What Are the Steps of Surrogacy?

1

Surrogate Selection

Once you opt for a surrogacy programme, Cloudnine alerts its partner bank to release a suitable surrogate based on predetermined clinical and physical criteria.

2

Surrogate Evaluation

Your surrogate’s pregnancy potential is evaluated based on scans and blood investigations. These aim to rule out medical conditions and infections.

3

Legal Contract

A legal contract-cum-consent form is signed by you, your partner and the surrogate, binding you into a legal agreement for the duration of the pregnancy. Another contract is then signed by you, your partner, the surrogate and the assisted reproductive technology bank. By signing both contracts, you agree to take full responsibility for the child, pay for your surrogate’s pregnancy expenses and take full responsibility for her until delivery. Likewise, the surrogate loses all rights over any children she carries to term under the surrogacy arrangement.

4

Uterus Preparation

Your surrogate’s uterus is readied for embryo transfer through a course of medications aimed at building the uterine lining.

5

Embryo Transfer

As a final step, your eggs and your husband’s sperm are united to create embryos. Embryos produced in the laboratory through this process are then transferred to your surrogate’s uterus.

What Are the Risks of Surrogacy?

Surrogacy per se does not carry any specific risks. A surrogate is as likely to experience complications during pregnancy and delivery as any other pregnant woman.
