Surrogacy Programme


Surrogacy is a form of assisted reproductive technology where a woman (the surrogate) offers to carry a baby through pregnancy on behalf of another couple and then return the baby to the intended parents once it is born.
Surrogacy is a highly complex process, and there are many important steps to ensure that both parties make the best decisions –  including extensive counselling, psychiatric assessment and independent legal advice In surrogacy, an embryo is created using an egg and sperm produced by the intending parents or the donors and is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. The surrogate has no genetic link to the child. Her eggs cannot be used to conceive the child.

The surrogacy programme is valid for only Indian nationals and under only certain criteria’s.

A person is eligible to commission a surrogate if:

1) A woman is unlikely to become pregnant or to be able to carry a pregnancy or give birth due to a medical condition.

2) Multiple IVF failures or repeated miscarriages inspite of transferring good quality embryos.

3) Women with certain conditions in which the uterus is absent or hypoplastic and there is a persistent issue with the formation of a normal endometrium (lining of the uterus).
