California couple takes winding path to parenthood through surrogacy, Ukraine and COVID-19

A Californian couple that has been trying to have a baby for an agonizing 17 years is going to have to wait a little while longer due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But thanks to a surrogate in Ukraine, they have what they've waited so long for. Yuvaraj and Sarvicka Nagendram, 56 and 49, respectively, called their new baby "the gift of a lifetime," but the journey to adoption was a long one that's still not over.

Coronavirus lockdown could keep St Andrews mum from baby's birth

Olivia Rowlands came through cancer treatment but as a result she went into the menopause. Olivia Rowlands and her husband Sam are expecting a baby girl in July. The baby is being carried by her cousin, Ellie Hutchinson, after treatment for bowel cancer left Olivia unable to go through pregnancy. But lockdown means many of the precious moments of the pregnancy have been experienced by video and the new parents may not be at the birth. Olivia, 31, a primary school teacher, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2017, when she was 29 years old. After 29 sessions of radiotherapy,…

Rights for Surrogate Parents

Surrogacy is when another woman carries and gives birth to a baby for the couple who want to have a child.  One or both of the couple may provide the genetic material for the child. You should seek legal advice before entering into a surrogacy arrangement. What rights does the surrogate have? A surrogate (whether or not they are genetically related to the child) is considered the child’s legal mother until and unless that status is altered by an order of the court (a “Parental Order” – see below).  A surrogate mother (who will be giving birth to the baby)…

‘It takes a lot of trust’: Surrogate delivers first baby of 2020 at UPMC Carlisle

Sarah Groff knew several things when she gave birth to the first baby of the new year at UPMC Carlisle Medical Center on Wednesday morning.  Most importantly, she knew the 5-pound 7-ounce little girl wasn’t hers in the genetic, legal or any other sense. And she knew that within a few days, the infant, Arianna, would be going home to Connecticut with her parents, Jovan Manero-Marrero and Emmanual Gonzalez- Rosado. Groff, a 23-year-old Philadelphia native and mother of two who lives in Shippensburg, was the gestational surrogate for that married couple. For nine months, she carried another woman’s egg, fertilized…

Paying gestational carriers should be legal in all states

Every year, hundreds of thousands of babies are born in the U.S. using assisted reproductive technologies, a multibillion-dollar industry that is controversial and largely unregulated. One of the controversies involves the use of paid gestational carriers, women who agree to carry a fertilized embryo, created from another woman’s egg, give birth, and give the baby to its parents. This is different from tradition (or genetic) surrogates, who provide both their own eggs and their own wombs. Gestational surrogacy now constitutes 95% of all surrogacy in the U.S. State laws about arrangements for gestational carriers vary widely and are in flux.…

Surrogacy: Who decides to become a gestational carrier?

Why would a woman decide to carry another woman’s baby? One answer is that there are times in life when a loved one is in need of help. This happens when a sister or a cousin or a close friend has suffered repeated miscarriages, or had an illness or surgery that made pregnancy unlikely. In these instances, it is not unusual for a family member or friend to step forward, saying, “I’ll carry your baby.” But what of the woman who decides that she wants to carry for strangers? What prompts her to seek, usually through an agency, an individual…

Ukraine’s Borders Open: Ukrainian Surrogacy Restarts After Covid

After months of closed borders due to the Coronavirus, Ukraine is opening its borders to foreign guests starting Saturday, June 13, 2020. Ukraine quarantined several weeks earlier than most countries and this has definitely helped. This included the closure of the metro and all intercity transportation. Similarly, fines and stiff regulations helped minimize the spread of the virus. The very best surrogacy clinics, the ones we at Delivering Dreams, verify and screen, abide by top international standards and regulations. They stopped IVF and fertility treatments including surrogacy in early March. Surrogacy clinics have now started with extreme new procedures and…
