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. The couple, from San Leandro, just south of Oakland, learned in early May they finally had a son from a surrogate mother in…

Babies Born To Ukrainian Surrogates Meet Parents After Pandemic Restrictions Ease

Foreign couples who waited two months because of coronavirus-related border closures have finally collected their babies from surrogate mothers in Ukraine. Ukraine's human rights ombudswoman, Lyudmila Denisova, said June 10 that 31 couples had arrived and been united with their infant children. There were emotional scenes as new parents cried and held their babies after a long ordeal because of the pandemic. “It's a very good ending of the story, unbelievable,” said Andrea Diez of Argentina, who held her baby for the first time. 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…

Surrogates left holding the baby as coronavirus rules strand parents

A week before Sierra Martin’s 27 February due date, she received an email. It was from the couple that Martin was carrying a baby for, as a gestational surrogate. This was Martin’s first surrogacy; she was carrying a boy for a gay couple from China. Due to the coronavirus travel ban, the email read, the couple wouldn’t be able to get into the US to collect their son. Would Martin look after him, until the restrictions were lifted? “I waited a full day before replying, because I didn’t know what to do,” says Martin, who is 22 and works as…

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…

As part of the initiative, the usually publicity-shy actress opened up to Yahoo Celebrity about her journey to Motherhood Via a Surrogate.

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. Due to coronavirus, the US authorities would only be issuing passports for life-or-death emergencies. Everyone else would have to wait. 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…

Fertility decreases monthly as IVF access is limited

Following the cessation of all fertility services (except fertility preservation for cancer patients) on 23 March 2020, fertility patients have been waiting to learn when they will be permitted to recommence treatment. For many, this has been a time of anxiety and frustration. One IVF consultant reports having had to make mental health referrals during the lockdown for patients who are suffering mentally and emotionally as a consequence of their treatment being postponed. This anxiety is particularly acute for those whose treatment outcomes are time-sensitive: for some patients, the delay might be the difference between success and failure. The government's…
