If you wish to have a limited relationship with the surrogate mother, but have the benefit of excellent healthcare, then Surrogacy in India is an attractive option. With a range of alternative medical solutions to childlessness becoming available, surrogacy in India has emerged as one route for many couples. For couples who want to have their names on the birth certificate, Surrogacy in Raipur should be your destination.
While some countries have banned the practice, commercial gestational surrogacy, in which a woman is paid to have a baby to whom she has no genetic link, has caught on in India. Here, the surrogates have no parental rights and cannot change their mind about handing over a child to the intended parents.
Many couples have pursued surrogacy in India and have been able to have a child with the parents own genetic material, or with the assistance of a donor egg, and the help of an Indian surrogate. After the first surrogate delivery in India in June 1994, India has steadily emerged as aninternational surrogacy destination.
India has offered relatively low cost surrogacy and medical facilities, with the use of latest reproductive technology, and the availability of surrogate mothers, who show dedication. Although the commercialisation of motherhood has raised ethical and social questions, has also raised fears of the exploitation of surrogate mothers. There are hundreds of quack infertility specialists, who have adopted this practice to fool the couples and extract huge sum of cash. In an effort to regularise the sector, the Indian Council of Medical Research in 2005 issued guidelines for the accreditation, supervision and regulation of surrogacy clinics, but those remain on paper. An expert committee drafted the
Assisted Reproductive Technologies (Regulation) Bill, 2010.
How to spot you surrogacy clinic in India?
1. You need to find a clinic that has experience with working with International clients. Therefore, ask questions and investigate.
2. Ask for the statistics of surrogacy clinic
3. Calculate and review the costs of surrogacy. Get a detailed list and cost for both a successful and an unsuccessful attempt. Also ask about additional costs (for instance, neonatal intensive care costs if the baby is born pre-mature).
4. Be clear on what you want. If you are looking for egg donor then review the availability of Indian and Non-Indian donors. If you are sending your embryos to India, then ask about the process. If you are using your own eggs, check out the facilities.
5. On your first meeting with your treating doctor, discuss with the doctor how many embryos you want to transfer. Most reputable clinics will only allow up to four embryos, but this will depend on the quality of the embryos. While this can increases the odds of a successful pregnancy, it also increases the odds of a multiple pregnancy. This is a very personal decision, but be aware that under the current laws gestational surrogates can only carry twins and a higher order pregnancy will result in a foetal reduction.
The Union government is now set to table in Parliament theAssisted Reproductive Technologies (Regulation) Bill 2013. It would address the issue of absence of appropriate legal provisions to ensure that surrogate mothers, who often enter into loosely drafted agreements with commissioning parents, do not become vulnerable is a serious issue. A comprehensive regulatory framework and binding legal provisions could bring order to the field, but the larger moral question whether human reproduction should be commercialised would still remain.
