The VFS Gestational Surrogacy/Gestational Carrier ART Program
VFS offers Gestational Surrogacy to people of all nationalities.
We can provide you an Indian surrogate recruited through advertisements in our local newspapers. All surrogates taken into our program are between 21-35 years of age. They are married with previous normal deliveries and healthy babies. They are made to run through basic serological screening tests as well as an infectious disease screen. They are also screened for Thalessemia.
We will be starting the surrogate on Estrogen tablets to prepare her endometrium from the first day of her menses. Subsequently, Gonadotropin injections will be started for the genetic mother from day 1 of her menses. The genetic mother will be taking an injection daily for approximately 10 days by which time she will have formed mature eggs in both her ovaries. The egg pick-up will be around Day13 and the genetic father will be required to give his semen sample on that day. An ultrasound guided embryo transfer will be done for the surrogate by Day15. She will then be on certain tablets & injections for luteal support and a pregnancy test done 15 days later will confirm if she is pregnant.
You will be required in our clinic for a maximum of 4-6 weeks initially to undergo the IVF cycle and your subsequent visit can be directly around the expected date of confinement of the surrogate.
