Surrogacy is an essential part of any ART program.
Women who are born without a uterus, or have severe
congenital defects of the uterus, or have had the uterus
damaged due to tuberculosis or repeated D & C
(recurrent miscarriages), or have had repeated IVF / ICSI
failures due to failed implantation could benefit from
The clinic provides a social worker who recruits a suitable
surrogate mother for the couple as per mutual requirements.
The IVF procedure is then started once their menstrual cycles
are synchronized. The couple can expect a 50% chance of
pregnancy per cycle of IVF / ICSI with gestational surrogates.
Once the ART Act of India is in place, these mothers will be
sourced through registered semen banks and the IVF procedure
will be carried out at the clinic. Legal and ethical
requirements are well highlighted in the guidelines of the ICMR.
