Surrogate mother pregnant for the couple from Cyprus!
Oooh, it was a difficult journey until the very second screening of the surrogate mother. Until this very moment, when surrogate mother has passed the second genetic screening we could not be sure whether this pregnancy will continue safely.
The thing is that in the beginning the doctor identified triplets, two in one sac and one fetus in single sac developing I the uterus of the surrogate mother. D.L. and her husband P.D., the couple from Cyprus and genetic parents of the babies were absolutely shocked by the news and they did not even think that triplets pregnancy will become their reality.
It was a hard time for them to accept the necessity of reduction, as soon as carrying triplets might result in premature birth and further health problems for all three babies. So of course the reduction had to be done, but they specifically asked to wait until the first genetic screening of their surrogate mother to see whether any of fetuses had any abnormalities. After the screening it was confirmed that all three fetuses are healthy, but the decision had to be done regardless. According to the doctor’s recommendation monochoreal twins were removed and single fetus was left in the uterus.
As emotionally exhaustive the process was, as strong the couple had to be. Their support of the surrogate mother was tremendous and very much appreciated by her and our team.
After the reduction was carried out, we all still had to survive the risk of losing the remaining fetus, but luckily the surrogate mother was very committed and now we can safely share the great news with all you guys. ☺
Our congratulations to D.L. and P.D., we wish you smooth and relaxed nine months of shopping in baby stores ;)
