When did surrogacy start? https://www.mother-surrogate.com/when-did-surrogacy-start.html 8888002300 Tue, 20 Jul 2021 18:29:00 GMT When did surrogacy start? -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov To better understand the essence of the process, how surrogacy works, knowledge of history is critical. Feskov Human Reproductive Group has prepared facts and useful information about the beginning, formation and development of such a method of assisted reproductive technologies.
The history of surrogacy, how long has it existed
We can say that the idea itself has ancient roots, and its modern execution, taking into account moral and ethical norms, has been in the last 30-40 years:

The Book of Genesis. The case of Abraham and Sarah. The married couple wanted, but were not able to conceive a child. Then Sarah asked her servant named Hagar to give birth to a baby for Abraham. That, after birth, was declared to belong to the married couple.
1884, artificial insemination of a woman was carried out, in an ethically dubious manner.
1975 - For the first time, the embryo transfer was successfully carried out in an ethical IVF process.
1976 Legal Specialist Noel Keane developed and signed the first legal contract for the traditional type of procedure, whereby the surrogate did not receive monetary compensation for her services. He was an ardent supporter of this method of reproduction. The Center for Infertility in the United States, which he founded, helped over 600 children see the world.
1978 - Louise Brown was born thanks to the research activities of Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe. The first child conceived through IVF.
1980 - The first compensable surrogate agreement was signed between the surrogate and the intended parents. Elizabeth Kane charged $ 10,000 for her services.
1984-1986 — The Baby M. Case. When the Sterns hired Mary Beth Whitehead as their traditional surrogate mother for $ 10,000. Who, after giving birth, refused to give them the child. This led to years of struggle for child custody.
1985 - the first successful case of a gestational process. Which was a turning point in the history of the process.
1990 - Johnson v. Calvert in the United States. When the gestational surrogate refused to give the child. The court, according to the signed agreement, fully supported the alleged parents and ordered the return of the baby.

Thus, such a concept has always existed. However, due to the public taboo on the topic of infertility, illegitimate children and the like, little was said about this until recently.
The era of traditional surrogacy
As the story of Abraham and Sarah testifies, this method of parenting has been practiced for thousands of years. But, due to the fact that modern ART were not used until 1980, all cases of substitutionary motherhood were traditional until that time.
In this case, the woman who carries the child for the intended parents is also his biological, that is, a real mother. She gives her egg for fertilization. And since conception took place naturally, the topic was hushed up and turned into a taboo. Intrauterine insemination with the sperm of an alleged father in 1884 paved the way for traditional surrogate pregnancies.
The famous Noel Keane was the intermediary in the conclusion of the first legal a traditional type of contract. The Infertility Center he founded has performed hundreds of pregnancies annually and participated in several key cases in the history of surrogacy in the United States.
But, until IVF, as we know it, became more common in the 1980s, all surrogacy cases were traditional. Which, due to legal or emotional difficulties, have not always been successful.
For example, Elizabeth Kane, despite the fact that she gave the child to the real parents, was not ready for the emotions that she experienced after the birth of the baby. She regretted her decision and even wrote a book about her experiences, “Birth Mother”.
6 years later, the most discussed incident in the development of surrogacy took place - the case of baby M. Stern's husband and wife offered Mary Beth Whitehead $ 10,000 to become their traditional surrogate. Her eggs were used for artificial insemination, which made the woman the biological mother of the future baby. When it came time to deprive her of her parental rights, after the birth of the baby, Whitehead rejected all previous agreements and took over custody of Melissa Stern. Thus began a two-year custody battle. Ultimately, the Supreme Court ruled that the surrogate contract was illegal and reinstated Whitehead's parental rights. Thus, father Bill Stern became the official guardian, and the surrogate mother was able to see the child.
This non-standard situation highlighted the legal and emotional problems associated with the traditional type of process, revealed the emerging risks. It prompted the creation of stricter surrogate laws, some of which are still valid today. Finally, it marked the transition to gestational surrogacy, which is considered by all parameters the preferred type of the process.
New norms of gestational type
The first successful case of a gestational procedure took place in 1985 - a year before the scandalous case of Baby M. was completed, when the alleged mother's fallopian tubes were damaged due to a childhood illness. This set a precedent for a new norm - a gestational type of service, without the use of surrogate mother's eggs.
Getting rid of the biological connection between a surrogate and the gestated fetus reduced the likelihood that the woman will change her mind after the birth of the baby.
With the development of IVF technology, surrogacy has become more affordable for intended parents. Some jurisdictions even began to prohibit the traditional type of service to prevent complications, as in the case of baby M.
At the same time, lawmakers and lawyers began looking for ways for prospective parents to protect their parental rights through parental orders. And also provide them with legal protection using enforceable surrogate contracts.
Following the demand, special agencies and specialists in surrogacy, reproduction centers and reproductive clinics appeared on the market. They offer, in addition to medical services, intermediary services in the field of surrogacy as well in order to help prospective parents and potential surrogate mothers better understand financial, legal, emotional, and medical aspects every step of the way. And also make it more comfortable, simple and understandable.
Probably, more than one million children were already born as a result services of gestational surrogate mothers. Since the time when this type of surrogacy has become a common practice.
Obviously, the modern form of the process has gone far from what it was before the end of the 20th century. Thanks to the symbiosis of rapidly developing innovations in medicine and the types of ART that are more accessible to most people, the number of such babies will grow. It is reasonable to assume that his story is only at an early stage. And taking into account the emergence of new introductory notes in the process, many fresh pages will be added to it in the future.
At Feskov Human Reproductive Group couples from all over the world can become happy parents with guaranteed reproductive programs of conventional surrogacy, services of a surrogate mother and egg donor, IVF. ]]>

Gestational Surrogacy: separating facts from fiction https://www.mother-surrogate.com/gestational-surrogacy.html 8888002299 Fri, 16 Jul 2021 12:51:00 GMT Gestational Surrogacy: separating facts from fiction -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov Myth 1. Surrogacy is exclusively the prerogative of celebrities and the rich
Sarah Jessica Parker, Elton John, Jimmy Fallon and other celebrities have recently taken advantage of surrogacy as a way to create their families. Because of this, many people think that such a method is too expensive, exotic and inaccessible to mere mortals. In fact, the vast majority of couples and people who make informed choices are not millionaires or celebrities. While the gestational procedure is not cheap, it can be far more affordable than many realize.
Typically, when working with prospective parents who have financial constraints, the staff at the Reproduction Center will offer options to help take care of their costs. And also, the convenience of patients from other countries. For this, various service packages have been developed for a fixed cost without additional payments. For example, remote program with the participation of a surrogate mother and an egg donor occurs without the arrival of genetic parents in Ukraine at all!
Myth 2. A surrogate may want to keep the child
This is a common and unreasonable concern of people who are completely unfamiliar with the process.
First, the central element of gestational surrogacy is the legal contract that is concluded between the intended parents and the surrogate, and protects against the possibility that the latter might keep the child for herself. Since the contract clearly and specifically spells out the rights and obligations of the parties in relation to the future child and each other.
Secondly, with the gestational type of the process, unlike the traditional one (which is used almost nowhere in the world), the child gestated a surrogate is in no way connected with her at the genetic level. She carries the child for another family, using the expectant mother's egg or donor. By the way, Feskov Human Reproductive Group provides a unique service of personal meeting with an egg donor!
Thirdly, psychological screening of candidates is an important stage of surrogate programs. Which ensures that women fully understand the nature of the process, know their rights and responsibilities and know how to manage their emotions.
Every Intended Parent cooperating with a gestational surrogate should know and understand that, in fact, she does not want to have her child. Her task is different - to help others build their own families.
Myth 3. Anyone can be a surrogate
In fact, almost half of those wishing to become a surrogate mother are eliminated at the initial stages. So, candidates for this role must:


meet the age requirements - from 20 to 35 years old;


have financial stability;


have family support;


have a normal body mass index - from 19 to 25;


it is desirable to have personal experience;


be ready to travel when needed;


be in good health;


to be a mother to at least one healthy child, born naturally, etc.


It is also important that the woman does not smoke, drink alcohol and other prohibited substances. Plus, she has to be ready for a full medical and psychological examination.
Myth 4. If surrogacy is illegal in the state / country, then the possibility of having a child is closed for a person
In fact, this is not true. Yes, surrogacy laws differ not only from state to state, but also from country to country. There are jurisdictions that are more loyal to the process. But some of them are less loyal or even prohibit such practices. This is true both for states in the United States and for countries around the world.
With regard to surrogacy, people are not limited by their place of residence to resort to such an opportunity. Moreover, in some countries where the procedure is completely legal and the intended parents are protected at all levels, you can save a lot without losing the quality of medical, legal and other services. For example, Feskov Human Reproductive Group (Ukraine) works with patients from all over the world. A large selection of international programs allows people to become real parents as comfortably as possible and at minimal cost.
Myth 5. The relatives of surrogates will never agree with their desire to take this step
Based on practice, surrogate families: their husbands, partners, children, parents, brothers and sisters, usually understand a woman's sincere desire to help another family have a child. And they actively participate in this, help and support her. In addition, do not forget about the financial reward for the invaluable service provided. Which forces loved ones to be more loyal to the process.
In fact, one of the requirements for becoming a surrogate mother is family approval and support. Without this, the process would be too stressful to be successful. One of the responsibilities of the Reproduction Center is to help women and their families harmoniously adapt to this decision.
Oftentimes, surrogates’ families and intended parents become good friends. Some even continue to communicate after the end of the program.
Myth 6. Surrogate mothers are just "baby-bearing machines"
This is an imprecise and demeaning definition. Women who consciously choose the role of surrogate mothers are, perhaps, engaged in the noblest thing - helping others build strong, prosperous, loving families.
The typical surrogate is a thoughtful, educated woman who appreciates the fact that pregnancy and childbirth are priceless gifts for her that contribute to the happiness and self-fulfillment of other families.
No woman should become a surrogate for purely economic reasons. On the contrary, financial stability is a must for candidates for this role. The notion that women are forced to do this for money is unfounded.
In addition, there are countries where only an altruistic type of service is legal, without the payment of financial remuneration. However, even there women continue to take this step.
Myth 7. Surrogacy is just a weird, detached, clinical procedure
Quite the opposite. Many prospective parents did not even expect that in the process of communication and solving common problems, they would develop such a warm and trusting relationship with their surrogate mothers. Although, this is not surprising. After all, the intended family and the surrogate are partners in the event with common goals: a successful, healthy pregnancy and childbirth, a healthy child and a full-fledged family.
Most intended parents and their surrogates keep in touch during and after childbirth. Many are present at the birth of their child. Even if parents leave for their homeland with the baby, they continue to communicate with the woman who carried their child and her family. They send photos, congratulate them on the holidays, communicate using modern communications, etc. Too much has been experienced together - there's no getting around it.
These are just some of the ideas and misconceptions that have arisen around the topic of substitutionary motherhood. Since this is a relatively new social phenomenon. And also quite difficult to understand and accept. Therefore, as if around something unknown and frightening, all sorts of speculation and fantasies grow. And also the fears and emotions associated with them.
And the best solution would be to contact specialists at Feskov Human Reproductive Group, which will present only the facts that turn the surrogacy process into a transparent and open procedure. ]]>

The 7 Best Fertility Apps of 2021 https://www.mother-surrogate.com/the-7-best-fertility-apps-of-2021.html 8888002298 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 12:51:00 GMT The 7 Best Fertility Apps of 2021 -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov  
Therefore, a clear knowledge of this time period will help you get pregnant much faster. And with guaranteed reproductive programs of the Feskov Human Reproductive Group for a fixed price, a family with any infertility problems will be able to have a baby.
Features of using a fertility app
Special programs that are available for download on smartphones and tablets that help track the menstrual cycle and the onset of ovulation are called fertility apps. The user needs to regularly enter data about the menstrual cycle:

start and end dates of menstruation;
basal body temperature;
the presence of bloody discharge;
presence of cervical mucus, etc.

Some apps allow you to enter information such as PMS symptoms and other detailed health data. Based on the calendar, the program processes the input and provides individual information about the current location in the cycle. Thus, you can predict the most fertile days - the so-called “fertility window”.
To make the forecasts as accurate as possible, you need to use one program for several months and scrupulously enter all the required data.
Why are fertility apps needed?
Today, most women prefer to use digital note-taking platforms rather than a notebook and pen. Therefore, the fertility app can be a more comprehensive and confidential way to schedule your menstrual cycle. Moreover, it is more convenient than calendar entries.
Many programs make the necessary calculations, predicting favorable days for conception, the onset of ovulation, when to wait for the next period. And also, what the totality of symptoms, cycles and graphs can mean in general picture of reproductive health.
However, it should be borne in mind that most programs use standard algorithms to predict fertility checkpoints - menstruation and ovulation. And if a woman has an irregular, too long or short cycle, personal data may not match the calculations of the applications.
Fertility app users
Any woman who is menstruating can benefit from these programs. Since most of them have flexible enough conditions for entering different data:

tracking monthly cycles;
management of PMS symptoms;
prevention of pregnancy (with or without contraception);
pregnancy (with or without fertility treatments);
watching for signs and symptoms of menopause;
obtaining clearer information about the state of health, with reference to the menstrual cycle.

Thus, the program helps not only to get pregnant faster, but also to provide a better understanding of the characteristics of your body and the processes taking place in it.
Fertility apps cost
Most of the applications are freely available. This means that they can be downloaded for free on any gadget and used at a basic level (entering calendar data on menstruation and ovulation). Many remain free, even if users get access to additional features:

message boards;
fertile period reminders;
health information;
forecasts.

Some apps charge a fee for advanced features, and some are with additional costs. For example, program-linked basal thermometers or permanent membership.
When is it appropriate to use fertility apps
When the girl starts her period, she can already start using these programs. Since the level of reproductive health directly affects overall well-being, including hormones, mental health, as well as the need for sleep, nutrition, and exercise.
However, the app does not replace visits to the gynecologist or reproductive treatment. In case of unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant during the year, excessively heavy, painful or irregular menstruation, suspicion of pregnancy, you need to make an appointment with a doctor.
With all the advantages of new technologies, in the issue of preventing unwanted pregnancies, one should not rely only on the program. It is better, in parallel, to be protected by other available means.
Also, it is worth remembering that all technologies in the world cannot guarantee the accuracy of the program. If you rely solely on it, you may not achieve the expected results. It is more of a tool to complement knowledge of reproductive health rather than the last word in female fertility.
It's like with IVF. First, you need to use all the opportunities to become pregnant naturally. And if it doesn't work, you can also resort to artificial insemination, as an important tool in the process of conception.
Application selection criteria
The accuracy of any fertility program will be as clear as the data entered. In addition, fertility can vary from month to month, fluctuating with stress, travel, sleep, illness, and many other factors.
How to choose the right program:

Cost. Most of the offered apps are free. Some have premium paid memberships with additional features. However, you can simply track your cycles in them for free.
Safety. In these program options, the confidentiality of all personal health data is guaranteed. You can share it in communities solely under your personal responsibility and at will.
Empowerment. You cannot judge an application by its results. However, it can be judged by how well it helps a woman to know her reproductive health. And also better understand the work of your own body. And if it helps to achieve the desired results - from preventing pregnancy to conceiving – it’s ideal.

In general, the application should be available around the clock, convenient to use, without hidden paid services.
TOP 7 Best Fertility Apps
Some of the most popular programs are:

Glow Fertility. It includes an ovulation calculator, fertility calendar, daily health journal. Also, you can enter data about your partner and his symptoms into the system, which can be useful when trying to conceive a child. More than 40 types of health information are subject to tracking. For example, basal temperature, sexual activity and others. And useful analytics tools such as a cycle diagram, an ovulation test analyzer and a feature for recognizing patterns of symptoms. Plus, through the program, you can connect with the online community and gain access to medical resources.
Clue Fertility. It is positioned as a symbiosis of science and ease of use, not only for tracking the cycle, but also when trying to conceive a child. It predicts the date of the next menstruation, the onset of PMS, ovulation, fertility window. Forecasts become more accurate the more information is entered and the longer the tracking takes. There are more than 30 of them. Also, you can add custom notifications and visit an active site on the Internet, where there is a lot of information about fertility, birth control, sex and much more on the topic.
Ovia Fertility. The developer of the program is the CEO who graduated from Harvard. He created her to help himself and his wife conceive a child. The application's proprietary algorithms are based on the latest fertility research. Therefore, they predict the period of the fertile window quite accurately, as well as report the daily fertility status. You can always be aware of how likely it is to conceive today. Women with irregular periods appreciated the accuracy of the system's predictions. Also, here you can track sleep, nutrition, exercise, mood and much more. Plus, data sync allows not only getting monthly cycle summaries but also sharing data with your partner.
Flo Fertility. This program is used by over 145 million people worldwide. More than 80 medical and health experts have worked to create it. The main difference between the application and other similar applications that collect data and turn it into information is the presence of artificial intelligence. Cycle tracking metrics include menstrual start, course and end dates, PMS symptoms, sleep, step counter, and more. It is important that even women with irregular periods, thanks to artificial intelligence, receive a high-quality forecast of peak ovulation days. Based on the individual characteristics of each individual person, and not on average female indicators. And a special pregnancy regimen helps to monitor the development of the baby, in case of pregnancy.
Kindara Fertility. An application based on numbers and graphics. Based on the raw data, detailed diagrams are drawn in the form of various color-coded visual images. This allows you to work with them together with a doctor on any fertility problems - from irregular periods to perimenopause. The basis is taken from the measurement data of the basal temperature with an ordinary thermometer and changes in the cervix. Also, you can connect a special digital thermometer sensor that continuously monitors the temperature and automatically adds data without manually entering. Premium options allow you to track more complex data such as vaginal sensations and mood. Or the ability to synchronize the cycle with the lunar calendar.
Period Tracker Fertility. It's a reliable, simple, easy-to-use way to stay informed about your fertility. For those women who need clarity and lightness, without any bells and whistles and heaps of additional information, often just confusing. In addition to occasional PMS symptoms such as bloating, cravings for sweets, acne, etc., the tracker analyzes your daytime temperature and signs of fertility. All this is needed to send personalized information about your next period, fertile days, and upcoming PMS symptoms. Thus, it is a great option to track your fertility and know what comes next from a reproductive point of view.
Natural Cycles. The only one of all the paid applications presented in the article. However, it is, figuratively speaking, worth it. Since the program is positioned as an alternative to hormonal and barrier contraceptives. As a natural form of birth control. The kit includes a special basal thermometer that provides an ultra-accurate temperature reading. Based on their and other signs of fertility (presence or absence of cervical mucus), information is given about dangerous and safe days during sex (when you need to protect yourself from unwanted pregnancy, and when you can relax). The app will come out a lot cheaper than many prescription and over-the-counter forms of birth control.

Each woman chooses which application to use for herself. And if you want to get rid of the problem of infertility forever, you can contact Feskov Human Reproductive Group. Various reproductive programs are designed for both couples and singles, without a partner. Since everyone has the right to become a real parent!

What to Do When You Can't Get Pregnant https://www.mother-surrogate.com/what-to-do-when-you-cant-get-pregnant.html 8888002297 Thu, 01 Jul 2021 12:51:00 GMT What to Do When You Can't Get Pregnant -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov  
Specialists at Feskov Human Reproductive Group has been successfully treating infertility for more than a quarter of a century using reproductive programs IVF, surrogacy, donation. So what steps should you take?
Appointment with a gynecologist
There is no need to go straight to a reproduction clinic. To begin with, it is advisable to visit a personal gynecologist, who, if necessary, will issue a referral to a specialized medical institution. You can bring a partner with you, but this is not necessary. The following information will be helpful at your appointment:

dates of the last six periods, even if they are regular day to day. A fertility calendar and basal temperature graph are also encouraged;
a list of drugs taken on an ongoing basis by both partners. Since some medications, such as antidepressants and antihistamines, can interfere with fertility;
existing risk factors or disturbing symptoms;
exciting questions that you want to ask.

When discussing, even mentioning painful sex, increased hair growth, or decreased libido matters. Since, this may indicate a malfunction in the reproductive system. Male partner symptoms are also very important. Because, about 40% of families are faced with male infertility.
Basic examination and analyzes
The gynecologist may order an examination, which includes:

a woman's blood test;
analysis of the semen of a man;
hysterosalpingography;
vaginal ultrasound;
diagnostic laparoscopy;
examination on a gynecological chair;
Pap smear
tests for STDs.

Basic examination and fertility tests in 30% of cases do not lead to a diagnosis. Therefore, such couples have to be content with the diagnosis - inexplicable infertility.
Basic treatment
Based on the test results, your doctor may advise you to start taking action. For example, the following technique gives good results:

clomid (clomiphene);
femara (letrozole);
metformin (which regulates blood insulin levels), often in conjunction with clomid;
breast cancer drugs that increase estrogen levels.

If uterine pathologies or endometriosis are detected, the doctor may refer the patient to a reproductive specialist or reproductive surgeon.
Also, you must:

stop smoking and drinking alcohol;
if you are overweight or obese, try to lose weight. Since a large body weight may indicate a hormonal imbalance;
start exercising in moderation;
reduce the intensity of training with significant sports activities.

Such lifestyle changes significantly increase the chances of conception during treatment and have a positive effect on overall well-being. This is true even if the patient decides not to continue treatment. Sometimes, only the correction of weight and lifestyle makes it possible to get pregnant faster and easier.
Find a Fertility Clinic
If the basic manipulations have not been successful, or if the test results are beyond the competence of the gynecologist, the couple can be referred to the Reproduction Center. And since insurance usually does not cover these costs, you need to find a reliable institution with the level of medical care that people can afford.
Reproductive treatment is expensive. Therefore, you need to plan in advance the amount of spending, including the time it takes for travel and procedures. If the clinic is not nearby. And even more so in another state.
Additional fertility testing
In the selected reproductive clinic, they may want to do new or repeat the existing tests. For example, a gynecologist might check the level of follicle-stimulating hormone, and the clinic's doctors decide to do an antral follicle count or other study of ovarian reserve. With a history of miscarriage, the gynecologist could send fetal tissue for analysis. And the clinic can offer karyotyping or hysteroscopy.
Making a plan of action and starting serious treatment
After a second examination, the fertility doctor will suggest a recommended treatment plan. The clinic's financial consultant will tell you about the amount and payment options. A married couple can take the time to think and make the most informed decision, according to their capabilities.
Fertility treatments range from relatively simple to very complex ones. For example, with endometriosis, surgical removal of deposits on the endometrium is first done. Then, after recovery, you can try to get pregnant naturally or with IVF.
If a mother herself cannot bear the baby, she can use such an ART method as surrogacy. For example,VIP surrogate mother at Feskov Human Reproductive Group has a positive experience of participation in programs and all the necessary recommendations. And also, the couple can start implementing the program immediately, without waiting time.
Flexible approach to treatment
Fertility treatment rarely consists in one correct decision, but rather in an integrated and varied approach. When one thing doesn't work, you need to try another. It is possible to get pregnant in the first cycle, however, it often takes several cycles before success.
A good specialist will always make it clear when to stick to the current plan, and when to make big or small changes to it. Also, there are some restrictions. For example, Clomid cannot be taken more than 6 cycles in a row.
One failed cycle is not a sign that the treatment will never work. Even perfectly healthy couples, it takes 3 to 6 months to conceive a baby.
Sometimes, when you are tired of everything, you can take a short break. Delaying treatment will not reduce the chances of success, but will normalize your mental health. Since this is also very important.
Monitoring pregnancy
If the treatment ends in a successful pregnancy, the clinic will most likely monitor its progress for several weeks or longer. And also, it may be recommended to continue hormone therapy in the form of pills or injections.
Depending on the cause of infertility, the patient may need to be closely monitored during pregnancy. Since, conception after fertility treatment is not identical to the usual process. After all, even such good news that everything worked out, after all the torment, can cause stress.
The decision to move on
It is believed that not all infertile couples can conceive. This understanding alone plunges people into the abyss of despair. However, modern medical reproductive technologies that are successfully used at Feskov Human Reproductive Group, enable almost all people to have a baby.
Now, not only married couples, but also single people, without a partner, can experience the happiness of parenting with the help of a special programs for singles. Therefore, with any fertility problems, there is no point in despairing. You just need to find a reliable Reproduction Center, a guaranteed program with a fixed cost and all available services, and calmly go about the process. And after about a year, get the long-awaited miracle.

How to Compare Surrogacy Agencies for Surrogates https://www.mother-surrogate.com/how-to-compare-surrogacy-agencies-for-surrogates.html 8888002296 Tue, 22 Jun 2021 12:51:00 GMT How to Compare Surrogacy Agencies for Surrogates -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov With the growing demand of surrogacy and public awareness of the process, the number of options with whom a woman should cooperate is also increasing. Each company offers its own experience. Therefore, when comparing different agencies, you need to pay attention to the most important criteria specifically for a potential surrogate. Therefore, when selecting and analyzing information about the agency, it will be useful to consider the following factors.
Surrogacy Agency Feskov Human Reproductive Group - experience and history
The choice of a serious and credible agency should be based on:

The duration of the functioning of the enterprise, work experience.
The number of surrogate travels, their success.
How the business was formed.

Many agencies are set up by parents who have gone through the process of substitutionary motherhood themselves and want to help other people create families. Or by successful doctors, surgeons, reproductive specialists, scientists striving to develop medical technologies and innovations for the benefit of humans.
For over 25 years Feskov Human Reproductive Group is successfully working in this field. The founder of the company, professor Feskov A.M. - a renowned scientist, author of numerous works in the field of reproductive medicine, member of ASRM, ESHRE. Thanks to the latest reproductive technologies, highly qualified specialists, guaranteed surrogacy, donation programs, IVF, the agency, together with the Reproduction Center, helped create more than two thousand babies! Who now live with their happy parents in all parts of our planet.
How is compensation done?
Payments to a surrogate mother vary slightly from agency to agency, and depend on some individual issues. But, in general, companies offer compensation payments in roughly the same price range. Studying and comparing the remuneration of companies, it will not be superfluous to clarify how compensation is paid, and how the process itself takes place.
A mandatory question like: "What guarantees does the surrogate mother have that she will receive all compensation if the intended parents run out of funds?"
At the agency Feskov Human Reproductive Group all reproductive programs for intended parents are at a fixed price, payable one-time. Therefore, the company provides financial support for each travel and can guarantee compensation for each surrogate.
Surrogate and Intended Parents - Matching Features
Each company has different waiting times for intended parents and surrogate mothers to match. This is due to the required number of candidates in both groups.
Therefore, when discussing the issue of time with representatives of the agency, it is necessary to ask: "How long does it take to wait for a happy coincidence with the parents?"
Before signing the papers, you need to make sure that the announced time frame is suitable for the woman to start the travel.
Reliability, safety and vast experience of work allows the agency of the Reproduction Center to find a response both among adequate surrogate mothers and intended parents. Therefore, there are always lists of people ready to travel. This determines the minimum waiting time for surrogate mothers in the programs. Especially for packages surrogacy with donation VIP and DeLuxe or packages without donor selection without a waiting period. Also, the agency has recruiting staff who are pro at finding suitable parents.
Support and help
Each gestational surrogate mother needs a different level of support throughout the journey. Therefore, a surrogate's understanding of her needs will facilitate the search for a suitable agency. Usually, the offices have dedicated support teams or individuals who help moms before, during and after the travel. These support circles or individual employees are required to support the surrogate mother throughout the entire surrogacy journey.
Therefore, it is important to pay attention to what kind of support and assistance the office provides, and what it looks like. You can ask the following question: "What support is provided to surrogate mothers within the framework of the program, and who provides it?"
The Reproduction Center Agency practices an individual approach, guaranteeing the right level of support throughout the entire process. Therefore, a woman will never feel lonely.
Medical billing issues
Each agency handles medical bills and other documents in an individual way. It is important to carefully examine how this or that office accepts, processes and when and how it pays medical bills during and after the surrogate travel.
The following question will be appropriate here: "What guarantees are there that the surrogate mother will not get stuck with her account associated with surrogate expenses?"
Each company approaches this differently. Therefore, it is important to make sure that this process and how it is carried out to the liking of the surrogate before signing the contract.
The agency Feskov Human Reproductive Group has made changes to this process and takes over the payment of medical bills. Since it cares not only about the intended parents, but also about the selfless surrogate mothers. Although the surrogate, as a patient, will always receive medical bills. But guaranteed fixed-cost programs for parents can protect both parents and surrogates and ensure that all medical bills are paid.
Success of the Surrogacy Agency Feskov Human Reproductive Group
When determining the success of an agency, a number of different criteria can be considered. But, the main focus is on how many children were born through the programs.
The longer the organization has existed, the more surrogacy travels have been implemented, and the more babies were born. And the more travels an agency has made, the higher its ability to cope with difficult and complex situations, thanks to its rich experience.
Therefore, the last question that can be asked to the agency: "What is the success of the office according to the number of children born within the program?"
Feskov Human Reproductive Group, thanks to guaranteed programs, boasts 100% of cases of healthy children born to couples with different reproductive problems!
Becoming a surrogate mother is a wonderful and rewarding experience. When choosing a surrogacy agency, it is advisable to ask all these questions so that a woman is confident in the correctness of the decision made for herself and her family. ]]>

5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Surrogacy or Egg Donation Agency https://www.mother-surrogate.com/5-things-to-consider-when-choosing-an-agency.html 8888002295 Tue, 25 May 2021 12:51:00 GMT 5 Things to Consider When Choosing a Surrogacy or Egg Donation Agency -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov To do this, you need to spend time and conduct a study of the largest and most reputable institutions on the market, compare their offers. Feskov Human Reproductive Group has been implementing guaranteed surrogacy programs and egg donation for people from all over the world. The Center's specialists have identified 5 main factors by which you can choose the ideal companion on this difficult and inspiring path.
Criteria for choosing the right egg donor
Conception through egg donation, IVF, and other medical fertility innovations have enabled many couples to create full-fledged families that might not otherwise exist. For example, in the United States, 1.6% of children are born annually as a result of donation and surrogacy.
In recent years, more and more healthy fertile women donate their eggs for the benefit of infertile families. On the one hand, it provides a wide choice of donors for intended parents. On the other hand, it complicates the search for the ideal candidate.
Some people think that the main thing is a healthy donor. But this is a self-evident moment. And what are the other factors for the right choice:

medical history - absolute physical and mental health. Usually, donors available in the database of the agency or clinic have already passed all kinds of medical examinations, including genetic screening for chromosomal abnormalities. Being in the database implies regular checks, tests and analyzes. However, before joining the program, the candidate is checked again;
external data. It sounds superficial, but it is very important what physical traits the future baby will inherit. Color of eyes, hair, skin, height, BMI, correct facial features, attractive pretty appearance - everything plays a role in the process;
education and intelligence depend on the preferences of the intended parents. Choosy people want the candidate to have a high level of education or an advanced degree. If the main thing is not an education document, but a person's potential - then more opportunities for choice immediately appear;
donor video or personal remote meeting. Not all agencies can offer this. However, in this way you can better know and feel the ideal person who will give her genes for the future baby as well as assess her adequacy and manner of communication.

Feskov Human Reproductive Group, unlike many other clinics, provides an opportunity to select a donor through personal remote communication. And also, for the convenience to choose, the Center's database contains candidates belonging to different races.
TOP 5 points to pay attention to when looking for a surrogacy and egg donation agency
 
A guide to the most important factors in choosing the right office:

Experience and history. Over time, more and more families with fertility problems choose gestational surrogacy and donation. Therefore, more and more such institutions appear around the world. The period of time on the market, the number of successful surrogacy trips, the presence in the team of people personally associated with surrogacy and donation will help in the selection process.
Market reputation. The abundance of information and the ability to check it is a modern trend in information technology. Real reviews about the agency or clinic, not only of the intended parents, but also of donors, surrogate mothers, will make it possible to draw the correct conclusions about the decency, honesty and openness of the institution.
The range of services offered, flexibility. This is the ability to provide all the needs arising in the process of donation or surrogacy, an individual approach to patients. For example, personal communication with the donor or donation anonymity, childbirth in another country, surrogacy for single people, guaranteed programs and other services.
A team of lawyers on the staff. Legal representation is an important and necessary point to draw up the necessary documents between all parties to the process (intended parents, egg donor, surrogate) in the correct way and according to the law as well as to obtain the appropriate documents for the newborn. Since every American state or country has its own surrogate legislation.
Emphasis on communication, support and relationships. This is constant friendly communication, coordination of all moments, emotional support, timely response to the emerging needs of all parties, since the high level of contact and the closer relationship between the intended parents and their surrogates / donors make the process smoother and less stressful. Many, even after the end of the program, continue to communicate with families or remember this experience as the most unusual and friendly.

Also, an important point is the feeling of trust in the company, which will be there for at least a year. And it arises after careful collection of information and analysis of the data obtained. When prospective parents are confident in the correct choice, they endure all the hardships of surrogacy or donation more calmly and more relaxed.
Feskov Human Reproductive Group is a reproductive clinic, legal representation and surrogacy agency all rolled into one. Thanks to a professional team, medical innovations, an individual approach and comprehensive guaranteed reproductive programs, the Center is one of the five most successful and oldest companies in the branch! ]]>

Surrogacy in Ukraine: Legal Aspects https://www.mother-surrogate.com/surrogacy-in-ukraine-legal-aspects.html 8888002294 Fri, 14 May 2021 12:51:00 GMT Surrogacy in Ukraine: Legal Aspects -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov Although official statistics are not published, according to some data, 2000-2500 surrogate contracts are registered annually in Ukraine. And this trend is growing.
What makes surrogacy in the country such an attractive solution for childless foreigners is its comparative affordability (prices fluctuate in the range of 30,000 - 50,000 euros, compared to 80,000 - 120,000 dollars in the United States) combined with high quality services and loyal legislation.
Legal issues of surrogacy in Ukraine
Today, Ukraine is one of the few countries in the list where altruistic and commercial surrogacy of a gestational type is fully legal when a surrogate mother has no biological connection with the child being gestated. The traditional type of service, when a surrogate donates her egg for conception, is practically not used anywhere in the world due to moral and ethical issues. The service is legal both for its own citizens and for foreigners. All points are regulated in detail at the legislative level.
In case of gestational surrogacy, it is sufficient that one of the intended parents is a donor of genetic material. Thus, either the intended mother gives her egg or the intended father - his sperm. In any case, there must be a genetic link with one of the intended parents.
Only heterosexual couples who are legally married can be considered Intended Parents when they provide medical reports about the infertility of the alleged mother. When there is a diagnosis that prevents her from getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy in a safe environment for both her and the baby.
This means that homosexual couples, unmarried people and single people do not have the right to become parents through surrogacy in Ukraine. However, experts at Feskov Human Reproductive Group have developed legal packages of programs for single men and women looking to have a baby.
As for the surrogate mother, she has to:

be an adult between the ages of 18 and 35;
be the mother of at least one healthy child born naturally;
be physically and mentally healthy and morally ready for the process;

Her marital status and other factors do not matter as much as those listed above.
Features of the surrogacy process in Ukraine
A circle of persons participates in the organization of surrogacy, each of whom plays a role throughout this long process, which lasts more than a year. The main persons are, of course, the intended parents and the surrogate mother, who is referred to in contracts as a pregnant woman. On the way to happy parenting, they are helped by professionals from various related areas:

surrogacy agency;
reproductive clinic;
law office, lawyers, attorney.

Ideally, intended parents who have embarked on a surrogate journey should start by finding an agency and a lawyer. The task of the agency is to provide services, including the procedure for selecting a surrogate and a clinic, and general consulting. The institution acts as an intermediary between the parties in the event of any conflicts, failures and other force majeure.
The reproductive clinic is responsible for the medical part of the process, including all the necessary medical examinations, tests, prescriptions, artificial insemination, monitoring of pregnancy and childbirth.
Choosing a lawyer is very important for intended parents to safely go through the surrogacy process in accordance with the laws in the country. In particular, the responsibility of the attorney is:

Legally represent intended parents throughout the process until they become legal parents.
Form a surrogacy agreement and a donation agreement between the parents and the donor, if necessary.
Discuss and agree on all points of the documents with the surrogate, donor, parents or their representatives.

It is common in Ukraine that the first and only contact of prospective parents from abroad is the chosen reproductive clinic which undertakes all the organizational, medical, legal work at a fixed package price. The advantage of such a proposal is not only in the convenience and financial benefit for the intended parents, when all the elements of the procedure are present in one place and at the same cost, which does not change. The clinic gives people guarantees for the performance of some of its services, depending on the program being implemented. For example, Feskov Human Reproductive Group guarantees as many IVF attempts without additional payments (in comparison with other clinics where you have to pay for each IVF attempt), as needed before a successful pregnancy. It also guarantees the birth of a healthy baby (depending on the package).
The clinic organizes the selection of surrogates, donors and a meeting with the intended parents. To provide parents with the most suitable candidates, it may contact other clinics or agencies from different countries it has partnerships with. The legal part of the program is also organized by the experienced lawyers of the Reproduction Center, who not only represent the interests of the medical institution, but also the intended parents. It should be noted that Ukrainian legislation does not provide for any special requirements for the content of surrogate contracts, therefore the parties have the right to form it in accordance with their interests and the negotiation process. Therefore, if parents wish to work with their attorney, lawyers at Feskov Human Reproductive Group fully meet and solve all the necessary issues.
What about legal paternity?
It is true that according to Ukrainian law, a surrogate mother who voluntarily agreed to participate in the program does not have any rights to the child she carried and gave birth to. Moreover, the Birth Certificate is issued upon request of the intended parents, where only their names are displayed, without any reference to the surrogate or the way the baby was born.
However, it can be difficult if the intended parents are from countries where surrogacy is strictly prohibited (most EU countries).
For example, according to German law, a child born as a result of surrogacy is considered to be the surrogate's and the alleged father's own child. German law treats the case as if the alleged father cheated on his wife with a surrogate mother. Any written statements by the parties will not be considered. Moreover, even a Ukrainian birth certificate will be invalidated. In such cases, a real mother is forced to go through the difficult process of adopting her own child.
That is why, for the comfort of such patients, Feskov Human Reproductive Group has developed international surrogacy programs, according to which a surrogate mother goes to give birth to any country in the world.
Surrogacy and nationality
Another problem that may arise due to different regulation of the procedure is the nationality of the newborn. Previously, Ukrainian law required that a child obtain the citizenship of a foreign parent at the relevant embassy or consulate.
However, after numerous cases when the country of the intended parents (France, Spain) refused to grant the baby its citizenship, Ukraine began to make such children its citizens with the issuance of the necessary travel documents to cross the border with his parents. This was introduced so that the child would not be kept dangling without citizenship, and the parents would not be stuck with him in Ukraine for an indefinite time, unable to take away the baby without valid travel documents.
A similar thing happened in 2011, when the French couple Le Roche, not knowing what to do, in desperation tried to transport their twins across the border in the back seat of a car. They were caught and tried in Ukraine for attempted human trafficking. Therefore, you need to carefully study this issue before surrogate travel as well as carefully select a lawyer or clinic that will make all the necessary documents.
Besides, clinics and agencies are needed in order to protect intended parents from all risks, including an unscrupulous surrogate mother. Even when concluding an independent contract with a surrogate, all the rights and obligations of Ukrainian legislation apply to her. So the woman has no right to the child. If she does not want to give him away, it will be equated to a criminal offense under the article of human trafficking.
A surrogate mother and her partner do not have legal instruments to keep the baby for themselves. However, she can challenge the contract in court, demand the establishment of family ties with the child, challenge the entry in the register. Ultimately, she will fail, as Ukrainian law is completely on the side of the alleged parents. But legal battles can last for months. Not to mention really unpleasant situations when a surrogate blackmails parents with the threat of termination of pregnancy, extorting money or additional benefits.
To reduce potential risks, Feskov Human Reproductive Group strongly recommends prospective parents get quality advice from an experienced lawyer in this matter long before the start of the program. You can use your personal attorney, or you can contact the lawyers of the Reproduction Center directly. Extensive experience and high professionalism of the staff will help you find a way out of any legal conflict and go with a complete and happy family to your homeland with all the necessary documents. ]]>

How the History of Surrogacy Changed Over the Years https://www.mother-surrogate.com/how-the-history-of-surrogacy.html 8888002293 Sat, 08 May 2021 12:51:00 GMT How the History of Surrogacy Changed Over the Years -  Surrogate Motherhood Center of professor Feskov Feskov Human Reproductive Group has a 25-year history of successfully helping desperate people to have a baby using surrogate mother services.
The ancient history of surrogacy
The first mention of the process can be found in the Bible in the “Book of Genesis” in the story of Abraham and Sarah. The couple could not conceive their own child for a long time since Sarah was sterile. Then the wife turned to her servant Hagar to become a mother for Abraham's child. This is the first case of traditional surrogacy, when conception occurs with the participation of the surrogate's egg and the sperm of the alleged father. Despite the fact that Sarah had no biological relationship with the baby, she and Abraham declared to everyone that the child belonged to them.
Approximately 30 years ago, this method was the only way for prospective parents to have a baby with the help of assisted motherhood. The traditional type of process had many obstacles on its way up to the 20th century, both in terms of morality and legislation. Children born by this method were considered illegitimate in all countries. And such a pregnancy could only occur naturally, which was morally unacceptable for most married couples of that time.
Active research in this area began as early as 1677, when the founder of scientific microscopy Lavenhoek studied the semen in detail and discovered the sperm. It was found that the male sperm is the basis of the family, and the female uterus provides a favorable environment for the development of the fetus.
And in the 18th century, in 1790, the Scottish surgeon and venereologist John Hunter decided to fight infertility with a syringe and male sperm, when he carried out the first intrauterine insemination, an analogue of artificial insemination, for a woman with her husband's sperm, injecting genetic material directly into the uterus.
The first cases of traditional surrogacy
Let us consider the chronology of events in the field of assisted reproductive technologies:

In 1976, Attorney Noel Keane entered into the first legal agreement regarding altruistic (no remuneration for surrogate) traditional surrogacy. Keane used this experience to create an Infertility Center, which will play a key role in the history of this ART technology in the United States;
in 1978, the first child was born as a result of artificial insemination - IVF;
in 1980, the first contract for compensated traditional surrogacy was concluded between foreign intended parents and surrogate Elizabeth Kane, 37 years old, from Illinois, USA. The woman received $ 10,000 for carrying and giving birth to a baby that was created using her egg and the sperm of the future father. Although she already had children and gave the child away for adoption, Kane was not prepared for the emotions of the experience and the challenges she faced after the birth of the baby. She subsequently regretted her decision to become a surrogate mother and even wrote a book about it;
in 1982, the world saw the first baby born from a donor egg;
in 1984-1986, the most famous case in the history of traditional surrogate motherhood took place - the “case of child M.” The spouses Bill and Betsy Stern agreed with the surrogate Mary Beth Whitehead for $ 10,000. For artificial insemination, a surrogate egg was used, which made her the biological mother of the child. After the birth of the baby Melissa Stern, Whitehead refused to sign the papers and give the baby to the intended parents. The fight for custody of the girl lasted 2 years. As a result of long litigation, the father received full guardianship, and the surrogate mother received the right to visit the child. This case became a turning point in the history of surrogacy, having played an important role in the development of thematic laws in the United States. It also showed that gestational surrogacy is more ethical and helps to avoid such legal conflicts.

Now, a gestational commercial type of service is legal in most US states, as well as in some countries, including Ukraine and Russia. However, intended parents from jurisdictions where the service is prohibited may travel overseas to legally have a child through this reproductive technology.
Modern surrogacy
The very first surrogate bearing program was recorded in South Africa in 1987 when a woman suffering from infertility asked her mother to give birth to a child for her. As a result, a healthy baby was born.
Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards from Great Britain are considered to be the pioneers in gestational bearing. In 1989, they managed to transfer embryos from genetic parents, created as a result of IVF, to the sister of an infertile woman. The experiment was successful, opening a new chapter in the history of substitutionary motherhood.
In 1999, the technology took it a step further with the development of the SPAR Special Program, which allows an HIV-infected man to become the biological father of his children without transmitting the disease.
And in 2011, the surrogate record was broken when the oldest surrogate mother on the planet, who was 61, gave birth to her own grandson.
Over the next years, lawyers from various countries have been working on the development of acceptable legislation in this area in order to:

Protect Intended Parents' Rights Fully
Ensure the fulfillment of the rights and obligations of the surrogate
Legitimize the relationship of all parties - parents, surrogate mother, egg donor.

According to statistics, this fast-growing, viable birth option produced 18,400 babies between 1999 and 2013. Among them, half are twins, triplets and quadruplets which indicates that research in this area will definitely be carried out.
As you can see, surrogacy has gone far from what it was until the end of the 20th century. Today, a combination of rapidly evolving medical innovations and the various types of substitutionary motherhood available are helping prospective parents to replenish families and future surrogate mothers to change the lives of others forever. Many successful women in the world of show business have already resorted to this method to have children. And the number of such cases is growing day by day.
The history of surrogacy is just beginning. And given its ever-changing nature, it makes sense to expect many new chapters to be added to this story in the future. And the specialists at Feskov Human Reproductive Group, Ukraine, are always ready to help childless couples find the happiness of fatherhood and motherhood! ]]>
