Surrogacy is one of methods of assisted reproduction technologies applied when a woman is not able to carry and deliver a baby due to her poor health state. Thirteen years ago the only way out of such a situation was adoption. Nowadays infertility problem can be successfully solved, even if ametria is diagnosed to a woman.
The essence of a surrogacy program consists in the following: a surrogate mother carries a baby to whom she has no genetic link. An embryo is produced by means of an extracorporeal fertilization: egg cells of the biological mother (or of an egg donor) are fertilized with sperm of the biological father (or of a sperm donor). After that the embryo is transferred into the uterus of the surrogate mother. According to the agreement made between the spouses and the surrogate mother, the latter is to hand them the baby upon delivery. The Civil Registry registers the spouses in the capacity of the legal parents of the baby.
In Russia surrogacy is absolutely legal and regulated by the current legislation.
As usual, married couples turn to specialized medical centers, which are competent to implement and coordinate such a program for them.
How is a surrogacy program implemented at clinics and specialized medical centers in Russia?
A surrogacy program presupposes the following stages.
The first stage is a candidate selection. The issue demands a thorough consideration. A medical center specialized in surrogacy disposes of its own database of examined candidates who meet the requirements of the Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation and can immediately participate in a surrogacy program.
A surrogate mother and the biological parents conclude an agreement on the basis of the current legislation of the Russian Federation. The agreement specifies the obligations of the parties. It is elaborated by lawyers and specific for any particular situation. The agreement stipulates all the issues including the compensation of the surrogate mother, the order of payment and the other points which are crucial for both the parties.
