Infertility, Intended Parents and Surrogate mothers
Infertility is a big problem now a day’s because of the urban population becoming too westernized and problem of modern society living culture; both male and female are more prone towards career building and especially female skipping their most fertile period till mid thirties. Sometimes for the sake of career building they sign a contract in which the clause of maternity leave is not there, thus the problem of infertility sets in. This gives an opportunity for the infertility treatment or if not conceive finally survive for surrogacy. Thus the demand for Infertility treatment and surrogacy gets its top most priority in India. We understand that infertility is not about being unable to conceive it is also the trauma individual or the couple passes through. India is the cheaper destination and low cost treatment provider with quality medical procedure and high success rate. The cheaper availability of surrogates in India is attracting a lot of couples from all over the world who are unable to have children.

Surrogacy and their types
Traditional or Straight surrogacy is the simplest and least expensive form of surrogacy and is also known as artificial insemination. The surrogate mother uses an insemination kit to become pregnant using the intended father’s semen. The baby will therefore be conceived using the surrogate’s egg. Some people prefer to use a clinic for inseminations, but it can also happen at home and can therefore seem a more natural and less ‘medical’ way of becoming pregnant than host surrogacy. It can, however, can be harder emotionally for both the surrogate and the intended parents.
Gestational or Host surrogacy is when IVF is used, either with the eggs of the intended mother, or with donor eggs. The surrogate mother therefore does not use her own eggs, and is genetically unrelated to the baby. It is physically more complicated and considerably more expensive than straight surrogacy and always takes place in a fertility clinic. Some Surrogates prefer this method as they may not be comfortable with using their own eggs in surrogacy.
There are three stages to gestational surrogacy:
1. Egg donation: The female Intended Parent, or the egg donor, undergo special procedures to extract a number of eggs
2. Fertilisation: The egg is fertilized with semen in the laboratory
3. Transfer: The fertilized egg is transferred into the womb of the surrogate mother
The fertilized egg can be transferred to the surrogate either ‘fresh’ or after having been de-frosted from egg storage. For a fresh egg transfer the monthly cycles of the surrogate and the egg donor must be synchronized, and this is done using hormone medications. In cases where embryos have been frozen already and the de-frosted embryos are being transferred some IVF clinics will insist on the surrogate mother taking hormone medications to ‘ready’ her womb lining.
The Complete Cost of Surrogacy in Pahlajani Surrogacy India:
Surrogacy costs in India may be less expensive than in your home country, the process is still expensive. Be aware that there are significant costs beyond those typically quoted in a surrogacy package, including travel costs, medical costs not covered by the package, and especially the cost of multiple tries. Because the full cost of having a baby through surrogacy includes much more than just the payment to the clinic, it's worth being clear on the full surrogacy costs at the outset. Listed below are approximate surrogacy costs at Pahlajani Surrogacy India.
Foreigners are attracted to India because it is cheaper than in the West to have a surrogate child. The 'package' for surrogacy can vary between Rs.9,00,000 to Rs.15,00,000, including the cost of doctors, legal fees, antenatal care, surrogate compensation, egg donor, drugs and consumables, IVF costs and other additional Charges in Pahlajani Surrogacy India.
The price of surrogacy has been increasing. There are many factors driving the increased costs like life insurance for the surrogate, higher surrogate compensation, strengthening Rupee and they are likely to keep going up. Prevailing exchange rates also affect the cost, as most of the clinics charge in Rupees.
Each clinic quotes fees differently and can change their packages over time, so the fees listed may not be apples for apples comparisons. Use them as guidance only. Confirm with the clinic you select what is, and is not, included in the fees, and compare with other clinics.

Legal Facts in India
Single men, women and even gays and lesbians could soon get the legal sanction to have children using surrogate mothers. The draft Bill legalizing surrogacy in India - The Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Regulation Bill 2010 has provided for single parenthood by allowing “unmarried couples” and “single persons” from India and abroad to have children using ART procedure and surrogate mothers. The Bill, with potential to rewrite the social landscape, may be tabled in the monsoon session of Parliament if the Union Cabinet clears it.
Commercial surrogacy is legal in India. But it’s still unregulated in our country as we don’t have legislation controlling surrogacy. And although the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has set ‘national guidelines’ to regulate surrogacy, these are still simply guidelines. All that this means is that surrogate mothers need to sign a “contract” with the childless couple. There are no stipulations as to what will happen if this “contract’ is violated.
The Indian Council for Medical Research gave guidelines to help regulate Assisted Reproductive Technology procedures. The Law Commission of India submitted the 228th report on Assisted Reproductive Technology procedures discussing the importance and need for surrogacy, and also the steps taken to control surrogacy arrangements. The following observations had been made by the Law Commission:
Surrogacy arrangement will continue to be governed by a contract amongst parties, which will contain all the terms requiring consent of surrogate mother to bear the child, agreement of her husband and other family members for the same, medical procedures of artificial insemination, reimbursement of all reasonable expenses for carrying child to full term, willingness to hand over the child born to the commissioning parent(s), etc. But such an arrangement should not be for commercial purposes.
A surrogacy arrangement should provide for financial support for the surrogate child in the event of death of the commissioning couple or individual before delivery of the child, or divorce between the intended parents and subsequent willingness of none to take delivery of the child. A surrogacy contract should necessarily take care of life insurance cover for surrogate mother. One of the intended parents should be a donor as well, because the bond of love and affection with a child primarily emanates from biological relationship. Also, the chances of various kinds of child-abuse, which have been noticed in cases of adoptions, will be reduced. In case the intended parent is single, he or she should be a donor to be able to have a surrogate child. Otherwise, adoption is the way to have a child, which is resorted to if biological (natural) parents and adoptive parents are different.
» Legislation itself should recognize a surrogate child to be the legitimate child of the commissioning parent(s) without there being any need for adoption or even declaration of guardian.
» The birth certificate of the surrogate child should contain the name(s) of the commissioning parent(s) only.
» Right to privacy of donor as well as surrogate mother should be protected.
» Sex-selective surrogacy should be prohibited.
» Cases of abortions should be governed by the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971 only.
Home Ministry Guidelines 2012:
The Home Ministry has issued new Guidelines in July 2012 regulating visas of foreigners coming to India seeking surrogacy
» They must be on a 'medical visa'
» Only a heterosexual couple married for two years is eligible for the visa
» The home country's foreign ministry or embassy must certify they recognize surrogacy
» There should be an official assurance that the child/children will be allowed to enter the home country as a biological child of the couple
» The procedure must be done at an assisted reproductive technology clinic recognized by the Indian Council of Medical Research
Process of Surrogacy:
Surrogacy is an expensive and complex treatment option, which is best reserved for women without a uterus. Research shows that the reason for failed implantation is much more likely to be genetically abnormal embryos because of poor quality eggs, rather than a uterine problem. For women with repeated failed IVF cycle; repeated pregnancy losses; and older women, donor egg IVF or embryo adoption is a much better choice, because it's less expensive.
