Pregnancy confirmed for the couple from Cyprus
This is a rare case when we are announcing pregnancy when the surrogate mother is almost in the middle of the pregnancy term. It was not an easy journey for Cypriot couple G.S. and E.A. from the very beginning, as due to unknown reasons first two surrogacy attempts results in an early miscarriage. The couple was devastated, but decided to proceed and the third attempt resulted in a confirmed stable pregnancy. It is hard to described the joy and relief they felt when we delivered this happy news to them.
Still, taking into account the two miscarriages from previous pregnancies, it was early to celebrate before the 1st screening was performed. We all were awaiting the results of the screening, wary in our hearts.
The first genetic screening on week 12 showed the risk of Down syndrome and it was another testing period of the couple. It was recommended to carry out the amniocentesis procedure to wave danger and make sure that everything is OK.
Amniocentesis (amniotic fluid test) is an invasive procedure aimed to diagnose chromosomal abnormalities and infections in fetus. There is a high risk that a miscarriage can occur after the procedure, so usually pregnant woman needs special medical treatment and medical supervision after this test is performed. So it is easy to imagine how scared were G.S. and E.A. They feared to learn that their baby could have anomalies, on the one hand, and that surrogate mother could miscarry after the amniocentesis, on the other hand. What we admire in the couple is that they tried to stay calm and focused and trusted completely the decisions of the Ukrainian doctors, transmitted by our Agency.
Fortunately, the amniocentesis was done successfully and without any bad consequences, the results of the test showed that the fetus is perfectly healthy and there are no reasons to worry. The second genetic screening on week 17-18 showed no further dangers, the baby boy is growing and impatiently waiting to see his parents when the time comes.
Our congratulations to this brave couple from Cyprus, we are proud of you and will continue doing our best for your surrogate mother. We look forward to seeing you in Ukraine soon!
Boy and girl are born to the couple from Spain
Today our congratulations go to the patient and lovely couple N.B.L. y F.L.L. from Sevilla, Spain. Their surrogate mother just several days ago gave birth to wonderful twins, a boy and a girl. ☺
The pregnancy was developing smoothly until a certain moment when a threat of premature birth was diagnosed during one of the ultrasounds. The surrogate mother was recommended a special treatment – pessary ring – to prevent premature delivery. Luckily, all went well and the pessary ring helped her carry the babies until week thirty seven.
According to the doctor’s suggestion, we asked the couple to come to Ukraine as soon as there appeared first signs of delivery. Still, the doctors were not in a hurry as everyone wanted the babies to gain more weight. So parents had to wait a little before a Cesarean section finally happened. It was worth waiting. In due time the operation was performed and babies were born healthy and hungry :)))
N.B.L. stayed with the babies immediately after doctors performed all necessary examinations and announced that babies are good to go with the happy mother. Three days after they were discharged from the hospital and now are waiting for all documents for the embassy to be gathered to proceed with baby registration in the embassy of Spain in Ukraine.
Another successful couple means another reason for celebration for Successful Parents Agency. Each time we watch the miracle happen and we feel we are part of it.
Our most heartfelt congratulations to N.B.L. y F.L.L., you made the right choice and you won this battle ;)

First Australian diplomatic mission opened in Ukraine
In March 2015 the first Australian diplomatic mission opened in Ukraine, headed by Douglas Trappett, Australian Ambassador to Ukraine. It is a really great news for all the Australian couples who choose Ukraine as their surrogacy destination. Previously all citizenship by descent / permanent visa applications for children born through surrogacy in Ukraine to Australian parents had to be processed through the Australian embassy in Russia, which was not convenient and took a lot of efforts.
The Australian embassy website gives clear and very detailed explanations as for the requirements presented by the Australian law to couples seeking surrogacy overseas.
In particular, intended parents need to know that in international surrogacy cases where the intended parent is a biological parent, and is also an Australian citizen, permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen, a Child (subclass 101) visa is the relevant visa for the child. Eligibility requirements for this visa are available on the Department's website. In most cases a DNA test will be requested as evidence of a biological link between the child and the sponsoring parent (usually father-baby biological link is required as evidence). More information on the embassy website, section dedicated to the international surrogacy arrangements: http://bit.ly/1iufRo3
As the Agency operating in sphere of surrogacy for more than ten years, we are happy that many Australian couples who we now work with, will have smoother path to take their babies home.

Sweet twins are born to the couple from Spain!
It was a long run for this couple, since many failed attempts in India, disappointments and struggles to understand why is it all going so wrong for them. Their journey to happiness is marked with years of fighting, tears and a lot of sufferings.
But the most remarkable in I.L.C. and M.J.N.G. from A Coruña, Spain is that undefeatable spirit of theirs, refusal to concede to misfortune and strong determination to win this battle.
The efforts they invested in all of their attempts is tremendous. They joined us in 2013 after India was closed for Spanish couples. We were surprised to see how diligent they are in preparation of all documents, medical tests and screenings. They were patient and lovely to talk to. Looking at them we always knew they will succeed in the end, because their absolute positive attitude was stunning. In some moment M.J.N.G. showed despair, she was devastated by their last failure and was almost ready to give up. But I.L.G., we would say the most supporting and focused husband in the world helped her overcome herself and try again.
When we learned the HCG pregnancy test result for them was finally positive, we were both happy and cautious. One would become cautious after so long story of trying. So we were very conservative in our greetings to them and advised to wait until the first trimester passes. They themselves could not believe it is happening until they finally hugged their tiny twins, with all tender and love they have been accumulating for all these years.
We are very happy for them and we wish them always keep this amazing spirit of fighting. Let this fight be the most difficult you experienced in your life, so that from now on you can fully enjoy the happiness that you won with your own hard work.
Olga, Yuliya and all the Successful Parents Agency Team!
Surrogate mother pregnant for the Israeli couple
First trimester milestone won by the surrogate mother pregnant for M.S. and I.S. from Netanya, Israel. Surrogate mother had to make an effort to make it happen though as during the first month of pregnancy the threat was diagnosed and she was hospitalized for around one month in private hospital in Kyiv. We were afraid that the baby wouldn’t make it, but fortunately the dedication and truly positive mood of the surrogate mother helped her overcome this danger and finally she was discharged with very optimistic forecast from the doctors.
Our congratulations to M.S. and I.S., we with you patience and sweet expectancy days!
Pregnancy confirmed for the Sweden-Ukraine mixed couple
Our congratulations to T.A. and M.C.K., residents of Sweden, on the occasion of living through the first trimester of pregnancy of their surrogate mother. T.A. shows especially tenderly attitude towards her surrogate mother, and we must say this affection is rewarded with great care that her surro is taking of herself and the fetus. There is still around five months to go, but we are already anticipating their meeting closer to the due date ☺
NOTE: For all the couples, where biological (intended) mother has Ukrainian nationality, the procedure of baby registration and receiving of travel permit (visa/travel passport) for the baby is quite easy. Of course, we keep in mind that the couple should be officially married and present to the consulate of their home country in Ukraine their marriage certificate and all supporting documents for the baby. Naturally, the procedure of baby registration in the homeland of such couples is also easier, especially in destinations where surrogacy arrangements are not allowed or not regulated on the territory of the country.
In case you need surrogacy and are a couple where a female spouse has Ukrainian citizenship, send us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll be happy to answer and help you receive most complete and detailed information.
