Surrogate motherhood is what it takes to turn a couple into happy parents
For a human being, propagation is not just a holy mission for a man and a woman. This is also indescribable joy of childbirth and upbringing the child up, the happiness of motherhood and fatherhood, the hope for a dignified old age.
Unfortunately, the number of infertile couples is constantly increasing. What can you do if medical treatment did not provide the desired results, and do you have to give up the idea of having your own children and only think about adoption?
Modern medicine and genetics have found the answer, which is surrogate motherhood. In this case, after the IVF procedure, an oocyte of the mother fertilized with the sperm of the father is transferred to the uterus of a woman who is willing and able to bear and give birth to the couple’s child. The use of this reproductive technology solves the problems involved in the legal and medical components of the program, as well as helps to cope with many other issues. Despite all that, many people opt for surrogate motherhood, although this option is very expensive.
Legally, artificial insemination can be performed only in institutions which have a medical license, and subject to a written consent of patients (the Basis of the Legislation of the Russian Federation on Health Protection of Citizens No. 5487-1 of 22.06.1993, Art. 35). According to the law, after childbirth the surrogate mother transfers all rights to the baby to its genetic parents (Article 51 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation). The information on artificial fertilization and on the carrying of the child by a surrogate mother is a medical secret. The cost of surrogacy depends on the choice of the clinic and the program and is not regulated by law.
From the medical point of view, the indications for the surrogacy programs are the following:
- absence of the uterus or its damage; incurable adhesions in the uterine cavity;
- impossibility of carrying pregnancy to term due to congenital or acquired diseases which result in deformation of the uterine cavity or the cervix;
- diseases in which pregnancy is contraindicated or impossible;
- serious diseases of organs and systems of the body, oncologic diseases;
- repeated attempts of in vitro fertilization (IVF), in which the transfer of viable embryos did not result in pregnancy.
