A Spanish couple has become parents of two girls!
The story of A.M.C. and M.C.P. from Spain is quite emotional. She was immensely afraid of all medical procedures after her uterus was removed due to evil disease. For years she was sure that she could not become a mother, because surrogacy in Spain is not something that is widely approved, rather vice versa. The couple searched all possibilities and finally wanted to do surrogacy program in India, but abruptly India has closed for all countries where surrogacy is prohibited by law. Luckily, Ukrainian legislation is much more favorable and the couple learned about it after speaking to our good friend who is a lawyer in Barcelona. In the end they ended up sitting in front of me in our office and watching me with hope that I will never forget. This is how it started.
I remember going to the egg pick-up with her, I remember her crying out of fear and holding my hand. I remember her joy when a lot of eggs were collected from her and I remember how happy she was when I wrote to her that twins are on their way… Now it seems that all those months of waiting were just a short moment until A.M.C. and M.C.P. came back to Ukraine to be present during the birth of their babies. In several days after they arrived, surrogate mother started her premature labor.
I rarely am present during births, usually Marina or Julia accompany couples to the hospital, but this time I felt it was me who should be there with A.M.C. It was 35th week, for two babies quite an early term, taking into account that each of them was 2 kgs when they were finally born. It was a great moment though, I felt like I accomplished yet again something important in my life, when I saw A.M.C. cry with happy tears. The baby girls were born prematurely and they had to stay in a hospital under watchful supervision of doctors for another week. But they seem to be as strong as their lovely mother, so yesterday they were discharged and now I bet she is singing some lullabies to them, nurturing them in her loving hands.
This is how I stayed with them from the moment of egg pick-up and until the moment of birth, and I have no idea why, but I feel that this very program became very special to me, near to private, and I feel proud for me, for our Agency, for happy parents and for two strong young ladies who very soon will learn to smile just as beautifully as their mother.
Congratulations and all the best!
