Kim Kardashian and her surrogacy story

"I had something called placenta acreeta where the placenta grows inside your uterus," Kardashian shares with US Magazine about her first pregnancy. "It's honestly what people would die from in childbirth... So, there's no choice — this is so graphic and gross — but he had to literally cut the placenta off with his hands, with his fingernails, inside of you. And it left a hole in my uterus, and so that muscle doesn't grow back. So I could not get pregnant with Saint."  Because of this, Kardashian used an embryo to carry her eldest son, then surrogates for Chicago…

As surrogacy booms, fears Ukraine becoming 'online baby store'

Tears of joy stream down Andrea Viez's face as she lifts her baby boy, born to a surrogate mother in Ukraine. "He's a star," the Argentinian in her late 40s says, her voice trembling. After nine years of trying to have a child, Viez can finally hold her son in her arms, thanks to a booming surrogacy industry in Ukraine that has given hope to thousands of struggling would-be parents. But behind their dream-come-true is a highly profitable and murky business that many worry is taking advantage of desperate young women and operating in a grey zone open to abuse.…

An influencer who has shared her infertility struggles has revealed that her mother will carry and give birth to her child after becoming her surrogate. Breanna Lockwood, from Chicago, Illinois, has blogged about her and her husband Aaron’s attempts to get pregnant since they got married. However, after three and a half years, seven surgical procedures, numerous attempts at in-vitro fertilisation, two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy, the couple decided to use a surrogate - Breanna’s 51-year-old mother, Julie. According to Breanna, initially doctors declined her suggestion to have Julie be their surrogate, as the standard cut-off age is 45,…

100 Babies Stranded in Ukraine After Surrogate Births

Travel bans have prevented the babies’ parents from entering the country. One official says as many as 1,000 babies will be born before restrictions are lifted. MOSCOW — The babies lie in cribs, sleeping, crying or smiling at nurses, swaddled in clean linens and apparently well cared for, but separated from their parents as an unintended consequence of coronavirus travel bans. Dozens of babies born into Ukraine’s booming surrogate motherhood business have become marooned in the country as their biological parents in the United States and other countries cannot travel to retrieve them after birth. For now, the agencies that…

Health Insurance for Covid-19 Treatment in Ukraine

During your travel for your Ukrainian surrogacy journey insurance is required to cover your medical care due to Covid-19. Entering Ukraine without an insurance policy is prohibited.

We at Delivering Dreams International Surrogacy will accompany you while planning your Ukrainian surrogacy journey. We want you to have a successful and affordable surrogacy experience. *The insurance policy should be issued by a company registered in Ukraine or a foreign insurance company that has…

Yes! The process for visiting Ukraine for your surrogacy or IVF journey just became very simple and painless for “Green Zone” countries. Position of country according to "Red zone" and "Green zone" shall be taken to account during customs clearance in Ukraine, not during departure of foreign national from his/her country.

The citizens from countries with a high level of COVID-19 cases who have been in Green Zone countries over the past 14 days*…

Important Tips for Entering Ukraine for Surrogacy from the “Red Zone”

No more private jets or flying strange routes! Now you can get into Ukraine easily to start your surrogacy or IVF journey in Ukraine without a 14 day quarantine. This decreases the cost of surrogacy and shortens your stay! The "Red Zone" consists of countries with more than 40 active coronavirus cases per 100,000 people. The fact that a citizen has a certificate of COVID-19 does not waive the need to undergo COVID-19 testing using the PCR method after crossing the state border or undergoing an observation if the citizen has arrived from a country entering the “red zone”. Persons…

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.

The babies have been stranded in Ukraine since the country closed its borders because of the…

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…

There must be a medical reason you can’t carry a child. You are also able to participate if you have had 4 unsuccessful IVF attempts.
