Surrogacy Mother or temporary uterus transfer
Important: we don’t accept patients to be a surrogacy mother in exchange for financial benefits. If this is your goal when accessing this page, we advise that such practice is forbid in Brazil. We are talking about a life and not buying a product.
Although it seems like a modern theme, we have had similar stories for thousands of years. In the Bible, in the book of Genesis, Sarah and Abraham were a childless couple. Sarah was already 75 years old and was unable to get pregnant. So he offered her Egyptian slave, Hagar, giving birth Abraham’s first son, Ishmael. Today, with the advent of IVF, it is possible to development embryos outside the uterus, without the need for sexual intercourse, which made the use of the modern surrogacy mother viable.
We understand that the term “solidary belly”, despite being usual, is an inappropriate term, as it implies a commercial relationship that is not allowed in Brazil. The correct technical term is “Substitution Gestation” or “Temporary Assignment of Uterus”. Here in this text we will use the term “Surrogacy mother”, because we find it more appropriate to the act of detachment and love that these women have when volunteering to help other people.
Surrogacy Mother allowed in Brazil?
Yes! It is allowed, it is legalized and it can be done following certain legal and medical ethics norms.
Who can be my Surrogacy Mother?
According to the Resolution of the Federal Council of Medicine number 2.168 of 2017, the patient who will be a surrogacy mother must belong to the family of one of the partners in blood kinship up to the fourth degree (mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece or cousin). When the person isn’t related up to the fourth degree, an authorization from the Regional Council of Medicine must be obtained before accomplish the treatment.
Does The child register go out in the name of the genetic parents
Yes. This point is already understood by the Superior Courts in Brazil. In the civil registry office, the child is already registered in the name of the genetic parents. No lawsuit is required to obtain the birth certificate.
How Can Neo Vita help you?
The Neo Vita accomplish the treatment of in vitro fertilization with pregnancy by substitution to patients who don’t have kindred.We refer the patient throughout the process. From orienting informed consent terms to be filled out by all involved, medical and psychological report attesting the emotional and clinical suitability of the temporary uterus donor. We are recommending the participation of other professionals, such as psychologist, social worker and lawyer and perform to bureaucratic processes for CRM authorization.
We are a man homoafective couple. Can we have children with a surrogacy mother?
Yes. We have several cases like yours here at the clinic. The difference is that another person will also be needed to help, an egg donor, because the surrogacy mother will not be able to donate the eggs for your treatment. Egg donation must be anonymous
We are a female homoafective couple. Can I treatment be done?
No doubt. In this case the procedure is called ROPA: receiving eggs from the partner. One partner gives up the eggs (which will be fertilized with a semen bank) and the other the uterus. Thus, we will have children born to two mothers who can also be registered in the registry office normally.
What does the surrogacy mother need to do for participate in the treatment?
She needs to have a medical assessment of her general health and gynecological and obstetric conditions. It is an assessment of whether she can get pregnant without risk to you or the child to be born.Tests for infectious diseases are also necessary for all participants in the process, so that inadvertent contamination does not happen during treatment. The surrogacy mother will have a health insurance contracted to have medical monitoring, access to laboratory tests and delivery in a high standard maternity hospital in the city of São Paulo, due choice of the genetic parents.
Are there risks of regret or the surrogacy mother don’t want to turn over the child after childbirth?
This risk always exists, although we have never experienced such a situation in our clinic. Before the supportive belly is released for the medical procedure, it undergoes an extensive psychological assessment. All aspects of pregnancy are addressed, from the changes that the body undergoes, that the child at birth will have other parents, that there will be no breastfeeding until the preparation to break the bond that was established during pregnancy. We also accomplish an assessment of the socioeconomic conditions of the surrogacy mother to ensure that there is security for the child generated and for her at home. Immediately after childbirth, the child is already in an environment separate from the surrogacy mother, an environment that has the presence of genetic parents. Thus, there is no risk that the child will don’t be delivered. It is not an act of cruelty because all this has been prepared and agreed upon in advance between the parties. It is even a way of easing psychological issues and giving back to the surrogacy mother its normal life.
We are open to clarify your doubts and know that the surrogacy mother is a viable and fundamental option to solve cases that were previously considered insoluble. Count on us!
