Surrogacy during the Covid-19 pandemic

Surrogacy during the Covid-19 pandemic picture

The impact of Covid-19 on surrogacy, as well as on all of humanity, is obvious. But let’s try to figure out exactly how it affects surrogacy.
As Covid-19 infections are on the rise in various countries, reproductive health clinics, like any other medical facilities, are reactingwith caution to the arrival of new patients. Because the safety of the people who put their trust in them is paramount.
The latest recommendations from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine ASRM are as follows:
– Careful study and consideration of the prevalence of the disease, both in the region of the intended parents and in the region of the donor or surrogate;
– use of cryopreserved sperm or cryopreserved embryos, as an alternative to personal travel, when in different regions or states.
There are clinics in Ukraine that offer distance programs for intended parents. Surrogate and egg donor can be chosen online. The clinics arrange for the parents’ biomaterial to be sent to the clinic and for the embryo to be transferred. Communication with the parents takes place via Skype. They are fully aware of the course of the pregnancy. When the time of delivery comes, the parents come to Ukraine to care for their child. In some clinics the surrogate mother may go to give birth in the parents’ country, which simplifies the paperwork.
The emphasis on safety and strict adherence to rules may discourage some patients. With this in mind, fertility specialists are aware of the stress their patients have to operate under. Therefore, they work tirelessly to support expectant parents, donors, and surrogates in choosing the safest options.
