Ranting & Raving about Doctors on the Internet

Written by Lauri on January 13, 2010

The following link raises some interesting thoughts regarding rants and raves about doctors on the internet. I’m sure what will follow is the same consideration regarding services — including surrogacy agencies, egg donation agencies, etc. I guess more ‘food for thought’ that we not just blindly trust what we read on the web, and before making a very important decision – like choosing a doctor or an agency – do your research. Here at Agency for

In the press and online, many are questioning that she has done it too many times — at the risk of her own health and potentially now of any future baby(ies). My greater concern is the fact that she has NEVER had/raised a child of her own — yet acted as

What is the process of becoming pregnant via Gestational Surrogacy

Written by Lauri on December 6, 2009

 

The medical procedure for the Embryo Transfer (ET) to the Gestational Surrogate (GS) is similar to having a Pap smear. In most cases it’s pain-free. First, your menstrual cycle and the menstrual cycle of the Intended Mother (IM) or Egg Donor (ED) are synchronized using birth control pills and daily injections of Lupron, a drug that suppresses ovulation. If it seems scary, don�t worry! Everyone who has been through the process feels intimidated at first. Often after the first few

If you pass the initial screening, we will ask you to fill out a much longer questionnaire, which covers a broad range of subjects so that we, and eventually potential Intended Parents, can get to know you. This questionnaire should take roughly 30 minutes to complete. We prefer to send and receive the questionnaire by e-mail.

What are the Types of Surrogacy?

Written by Lauri on November 23, 2009

 

There are two general types of Surrogate Mothers — Gestational Surrogates (GS) and Traditional Surrogates (TS). Each has some variations:

Gestational Surrogate (GS) or Gestational Carrier (GC)In this process, the Gestational Surrogate becomes pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), using the eggs from the Intended Mother (IM). The Gestational Surrogate receives the fertilized egg through an Embryo Transfer (ET), a quick, painless procedure. The Gestational Surrogate has no genetic relationship to the baby. This is currently the most popular form
