With the right guidance and support, the relationship between you and your Surrogate Mother will form the foundation of a rewarding surrogacy experience. From creating your Intended Parent profile to finding a Surrogate Mother, and eventually establishing a formal surrogacy agreement, important considerations await you as you begin the matching process.
Every surrogacy relationship is wholly unique. Finding your surrogate is a mutual matching process through which you choose each other. For this reason, TSE ensures that both Surrogate Mothers and Intended Parents are physically, emotionally and psychologically prepared to enter a surrogacy arrangement before the matching process even begins. Our pre-screening process ensures only the most qualified candidates are accepted into TSE' surrogacy program, thus alleviating any unnecessary wait time and anxiety.
We focus exclusively on facilitating a relationship between you and your Surrogate Mother that, from the very beginning, is based on mutual trust and respect. TSE’s relationship development process includes an initial consultation, developing an intended parent profile, speaking with surrogate candidates and executing a formal surrogacy agreement. You proceed on the journey at your own pace. Each step forward will be made with confidence.
Once you have successfully matched with a Gestational Carrier and established a contract, you will begin the next phase of the surrogacy process. There are many details to consider, including the medical procedures, pregnancy timeline, travel considerations, delivery plan and post-delivery expectations.
TSE is here to proactively manage the process partnering with the clinics, physicians, the hospital, attorneys to make this as smooth as possible. All while assisting you and your Gestational Carrier, to ensure that all goes according to your surrogacy plan. With the proper support, the pregnancy, delivery and days that follow can be free of anxiety and full of joy.
Your particular circumstances and treating fertility clinic will dictate what medical procedures are required for surrogacy. However, all cases will involve In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The fertilization process should be conducted by qualified fertility clinics with expertise in IVF and other assisted reproductive technologies. We are happy to provide referrals to some of the leading clinics in this field.
The IVF process consists of several steps. The following description is sourced from RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association.
