Create A Family through Gestational Surrogacy

diamond-shape

As the only full-service agency in Hawaii exclusively dedicated to surrogacy, we have more than a decade of local experience helping Intended Parents fulfill their lifelong desire to create a family.

 

We can help you, too.

 

At Hawaii Surrogacy, we are involved in every step of this process. We don’t believe that our job ends with matching. If you haven’t created embryos yet, we are happy to refer you to fantastic local and national egg donor programs if you need them. We will help you create a budget and compare costs across service providers.

 

Once you have your embryos and chosen surrogate, we work closely with the IVF coordinator at your clinic to make sure your cycle gets off to a great start. This means that our surrogates arrive at the clinic with all the necessary paperwork in hand and verified surrogacy-friendly insurance.

What is Gestational Surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy is a method for having a child for individuals and couples. Intended parents work with a gestational carrier who becomes pregnant using embryos created with: (1) the intended mother’s ovum or donor ovum, and (2) the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm. The Gestational Surrogate has no genetic relationship to the baby. She is simply the oven for a very precious bun!

Who is involved in surrogacy?

Besides the gestational carrier and the Intended Parents, there is the fertility clinic that performs the medical cycle and many other professionals – attorneys that draw up contracts between all parties, psychologists that explore the motivations and mental state of everyone involved, escrow companies that hold all the funds to be paid to the gestational carrier in a safe and secure account, and finally, an agency that coordinates all the parties involved.

What does the medical cycle involve?

A gestational carrier will carry embryos created through IVF. Prior to the embryo transfer, the gestational carrier will be on cycling medications. These medications are hormones that can control and suppress ovulation, as well as build up the uterine lining so the body is ready to receive the embryos. The hormones are taken in the form of injections.

 

The gestational carrier will have regular visits to the clinic to monitor her hormone levels and measure the thickness of her uterine lining. At the appropriate time, the doctor will transfer the embryos into the gestational carrier’s uterus via a tiny catheter. It is a short, painless procedure. The gestational carrier then goes home to rest for a day or two before resuming normal activities.
