Supporting (and not) Those Struggling to Overcome Infertility

Or maybe you’re not struggling to get pregnant, you never want to get pregnant, or you’re the friend of someone who is trying to get pregnant. Maybe you’ve tried to offer them that silver lining and make them “feel better” about what they’re going through.  Please, Stop it. You won’t be able to silver line your friend so that she feels better. In fact, you should refrain from ever saying the following: At least, [followed by literally anything else] Have you considered, [insert phrases like: ‘just relaxing’, ‘acupuncture’, ‘standing on your head’, ‘this supplement’] Can’t you just adopt? It’ll happen when…

Advantages of using and Agency for your UkrainianSurrogacy: No cost difference

Most people would think that going “directly” to a clinic should save money. In reality, it ends up costing about the same. Why? Most clinics give agencies a discount because they value the added benefit provided by an agency. Most clinics prefer to do what they do best - the medical work and not the documentation, preparation, communication and exit papers for your child. Agencies should also include costs that are standard for any pregnancy, but often excluded from price sheets presented by clinics. A good agency will include all necessary costs and fees that might turn into an unpleasant…

Advantages of using an Agency for your Ukrainian Surrogacy

Under Ukrainian law, only agencies can provide personal information about a surrogate. Clinics are only allowed to present surrogates anonymously. One of the ways clinics have gotten around this law is by creating their “own” agencies. Needless to say, this creates a terrible conflict of interest as a clinic’s agency, by its nature represents and backs the agency and looks out for their welfare not yours.

Why You Should Hire An Agency Not Affiliated With A Clinic For Your Ukrainian Surrogacy

Most agencies in Ukraine are actually owned by a clinic. This is a major conflict of interest. They have no reason to look out for anyone’s interests except their owners - the agency over that of the intended parents. This is something that may impact you at the beginning of the journey in the surrogates and donors you are offered and throughout your entire surrogate journey. Independent agencies (those not founded, funded and run by a clinic) like Delivering Dreams represent you and in the case of any conflict will fight for your interests above everything else.

Ukrainian Surrogacy: Don’t Believe Unbelievable Results – Question Them

If an agency or clinic presents simply outrageous results or success rates be wary. As much as you want to make sure you have success, if something is too good to be true and outside the norm of all others, it should probably be a big red flag as much as you want to believe them. ART is a science, but it involves unique humans, donors, IP and surrogates, not robots. Make sure the doctors at the clinic or agency you are considering look at your test results, history and situation and give you an estimate on your individual case.…

UkrainianSurrogacy: Do I need to be married?

Yes. The Ukrainian government only allows traditionally married couples to undergo surrogacy. Unfortunately this does not extend to married same sex couples. On of the documents you will have to provide before you are approved into and start the surrogacy process, will be a copy of your official marriage certificate. So, it means it must be a legally registered marriage. There is however, not minimum period for the marriage, so you can be newly married.
