The life for us changed for ever
Couple from Lithuania shares their experience on surrogacy program
We found the Successful Parents Agency on internet and decided to go ahead with their surrogacy programme.
From the very beginning the communication with agency was excellent. We selected potential surrogate candidates during online interview. They then had to undergo meticulous medical tests including endometrial pipelle biopsy in order to give our single healthy embryo best chance to survive. It worked, the surrogate mother became pregnant!
Unfortunately the war started soon afterwards. Our surrogate mother preferred to stay in Ukraine since there were no fights in her city and we agreed to this. The pregnancy went very well, the surrogate remained in a good health. Despite of a very difficult time the pregnancy care was excellent. Our surrogate motherunderwent numerous health checks and ultrasound scans. The results were sent to us the same day with translation to English and baby scan videos were attached.
The surrogate mother remained very positive, she kept sending her pregnancy and family photos andmessages to us via agency which reduced our anxiety down to the minimum. She was moved to Kyiv 2 months prior to her due date to be close to the maternity hospital and best medical services. The labour went well and our baby boy was born big and healthy via vaginal delivery.
We arrived in Kyiv soon after our son was born and left one week after when all paperwork was completed. We felt pretty save in Kyiv, seen no incidents there and our coordinator Elena made sure we were well looked after. We really liked working with Successful Parents Agency - loved the fact that surrogates were treated with respect and their wellbeing was important to the agency. Our programme coordinator Elena became our friend, we are so grateful for her devotion to her job and would really love to see her and work with her again!
