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.

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…

Surrogacy 'leads to better parenting'

The world's first scientific study to lift the veil on the realities of surrogacy carried out in Britain suggests not only that surrogate mothers have no problem handing over babies, but that the families who receive the child are warmer, happier and more caring than ordinary families. "It is often assumed that surrogate mothers will have difficulties handing the child over following the birth," said Fiona MacCallum, one of the researchers from City University in London, who will present her preliminary results at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology meeting in Vienna today. "We found only one instance…

Surrogacy: new parents stuck in US amid Covid-19 shutdown

James Washington, a 37-year-old lawyer originally from Norfolk, UK, was on the US Department of State website last Thursday trying to arrange a passport to take his newborn son, born via surrogate in the US, home to Amsterdam, when a message popped up.

As a result, Washington and his husband, Rob, 36, and their 11-day-old baby are stuck in an Airbnb in Portland, Oregon. Under normal circumstances, the Washingtons would have applied for a US passport for their son, taken…
