We are working!
This is the first post in a while, and we have so much news to share with you.
Foremost, all employees of our Agency are safe and sound and continue working (mainly from the Kyiv office). We are sincerely grateful to all our clients for the words of support from the very first days of the war. It means a lot to us.
We are working and have not stopped the operation of our company for a single day.
Since the beginning of the war, according to the agreement with our clients, their surrogate mothers were evacuated from Ukraine. Many have already given birth to children and come back to Ukraine, and some expect childbirth soon. In the first days of the war, were evacuated seven pregnant surrogate mothers, two clients, and twins born prematurely under bombing on the 2nd day of the war in one of the Kyiv maternity hospitals (this deserves a separate story). In all cases, we were on top of all issues that arose and took care of our surrogate mothers and clients.
Some surrogate mothers who stayed during pregnancy with their families in Ukraine were relocated to safer regions of the country. In April, we arranged comfortable childbirth for twins of our Polish clients and received their birth certificates shortly at the Lviv registry office.
In May, our partner clinic in Kyiv started functioning at full capacity.
The clinic employees took all measures to ensure the safety of the clients' frozen genetic materials. Thankfully through mutual efforts, we were able to develop further our surrogate programs. At this point, we have performed six frozen embryo transfers, two of which have already received positive pregnancy results.
Given the current situation, we have reviewed many internal procedures in the Agency to guarantee the safety of all parties involved in the programs, especially pregnant women. We are constantly monitoring the existing situation in the war zone. We've made all necessary arrangements for the emergency departure of people from dangerous regions. We have rented apartments remote from the areas of combat actions. In addition, we have an agreement with maternity hospitals and civil registry offices close to the western border of Ukraine. These measures are taken to successfully carry out all our programs with the highest level of security possible under present conditions.
Considering the complex logistics upon the arrival of clients in Ukraine, we shifted focus to surrogate programs with frozen genetic materials, namely embryos or sperm (in the case of the surrogacy program with egg donation). This option is available with the frozen genetic material brought from abroad. Our partner logistics company provides reliable and fast transportation of your frozen embryos and/or sperm to the clinic in Kyiv. In this case, there is no need for our clients to arrive in Ukraine before the child is born. We can do such programs based on the power of attorney from our clients.

We are here to help you and bring your long-awaited child into this world.
Twin babies born to the couple from Portugal
Our news related with parents from Portugal are ending up with the birth of twins: the healthy baby boy and girl. Our clients T.S.M. and A.T.P. became happy parents of these two little stars.
First time this couple initiated a surrogacy program with frozen embryos from Portugal at the end of 2020. Despite all the efforts, that attempt did not result in a long-awaited pregnancy. That was a huge disappointment and emotionally hard time for them, but our clients were determined and did not give up. And this is the moment when miracles happen.
They decided to continue their treatment in Ukraine and try one more time. As always, the doctors we cooperate with were on top of every step in the process, and did everything feasible to help our clients. The outcome of this attempt exceeded all expectations. The surrogate mother successfully got pregnant with twins and had been doing well during the whole period of pregnancy.
Without any complications, the surrogate mother gave birth to twins in the 3rd decade of January.
The Portuguese Consulate has issued travel documents for children in an expedited manner making the final stage of the program as smooth as possible for our clients.
Just three days before the Russian invasion into Ukraine, the Portuguese couple returned home in a larger family composition.
PS. Ukraine is the place where the dreams of European couples struggling to become parents finally come true. It is the place where new life is born.
Believe in Ukraine! Trust your feelings! And God bless us all.
