Our surrogates are screened at both medical and psychological levels. We tend to recruit surrogates how are in the range of 22-28 years of age. Apart from that all surrogates have had normal pregnancies in the past.
” We also involve the surrogate’s family so that there is emotional support for them from their families as well. “
Another point to consider is about helping out the surrogate financially, in-fact one of the reason’ we call ourselves an ethical agency is because we also offer to look after the surrogate’ for the rest of her life.
This is purely optional and does not cost much when you take into consideration US$ goes a long way when converted into Indian currency. This includes options like health insurance, education expense of surrogate’s children plus much more. Our surrogates live in a dedicated surrogate accommodation and are looked after by a Doctor and a Surrogate Caretaker who is responsible for her for the entire duration of her pregnancy.
