The kid with express delivery of

of Such children call “gold“. It is not enough of them - about 500 in a year all over the country. The birth is preceded for many years inspections, by treatments, hopes and disappointments.“ Gold children“ are born thanks to the program of surrogacy.

What is it

Around surrogacy goes many rumors. Actually it is only one of the auxiliary reproductive technologies (ART) when the kid is born not by genetic, but substitute mother. Experts call such woman - the gestational courier, from the word a gestation - term on incubation of the child. Pregnancy is caused by fertilization of ova of genetic mother spermatozoa of the genetic father.

makes a reservation In advance that as parents of the mature and born child genetic father and mother - people whose gametes were used for fertilization act. The gestational courier - only a vessel, the “living space“ rented for 9 months for a fruit. Quite so the World Health Organization in 2001 defined surrogacy.

As it occurs

After several years of unsuccessful treatment of infertility the married couple addresses to private or state clinic which is engaged in reproductive technologies and has the database of potential gestational couriers. The choice of substitute mother happens in most cases anonymously - according to dry information in base on age, a state of health. But at desire it is possible to get acquainted with the woman personally. Further both parties sign the contract. it is important to p to understand

that substitute mother does not keep any rights and duties in relation to the kid. All disputes, disagreements which can arise during implementation of terms of the contract are allowed in a judicial proceeding according to the current legislation.

If future parents prefer not to meet the gestational courier, it is better to sign two contracts. One - between substitute mother and medical institution where artificial insemination and further observation over pregnancy course will be made. The second - between this medical institution and spouses - customers.

Who such genetic parents

of Steam can take part in the Surrogacy program only in case other auxiliary reproductive technologies do not work. For example, when the woman has congenital malformations of a uterus or lack of a uterus after surgery. A common cause - unsuccessful carrying out procedure of extracorporal fertilization (EKO) more than three times. There is also infertility of not clear genesis when doctors cannot define why treatment does not give the expected result.

Who substitute mother

Substitute mother can there is any woman from 18 to 35 years who has the healthy child born naturally. She earns the reward stipulated in advance as nearly a year of the life devotes to a good cause - incubation of foreign child. Before being included in the database, the pretender has to have full medical examination, interview with the psychologist and testing - definition of the psychoemotional status. Only the fifth part of all candidates meets strict criteria.

If the woman is married, she has to agree to providing information concerning the used medical technology to the husband. And he is obliged to confirm in writing that he does not object, and it is obligatory in the presence of the doctor of clinic. The spouse should incur some obligations too - for example, to pass full medical examination, to limit or stop sex life with the wife.

for genetic parents specialists of clinic, agency are engaged in

in Selection of the gestational courier. Some couples prefer to be engaged in search independently. It is possible to address with a delicate request for incubation of the child to the relative or the acquaintance - positive examples much. In this case participation in the program happens gratuitously. However not everyone genetically parents is ready to undertake moral and a liability for possible frustration of health of the good acquaintance during pregnancy and after the delivery.

In case of pregnancy approach genetic parents pay food and inspection of the woman bearing the kid, childbirth and at their successful completion - remuneration. Contrary to rumors and conjectures, in Russia there was no case when substitute mother did not give the born child.
