We can help make sure you are legally, mentally, and physically protected with these screenings.
The Health Screening Process through the Surrogate Mother’s Pregnancy
Through the pregnancy, you will go through standard checkups that will make sure everyone involved is safe. You will start with a physical along with laboratory testing. To prepare for the “in-vitro fertilization” (IVF) process, you will go through some fertility tests and treatments. These treatments will better prepare you physically. After the tests and treatments, the intended mother’s egg will be fertilized by the intended father’s sperm in a lab. The fertilized egg will then be placed in your uterus to carry, this is the IVF process. Then throughout your pregnancy, you will go to standard doctor’s appointments and ultrasounds which we can help you schedule.
