Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We continue with the news about the programs we run for our clients in Ukraine.
Recently, our Agency has seen a significant increase of inquiries from Polish couples. One of the reasons is that a lot of Ukrainian doctors who specialize in infertility treatments have suspended their practice. In addition, the procedure for taking a child home across the border between Poland and Ukraine is much simpler now.
Meanwhile, the results of our ongoing work continue to delight our clients from Poland. As an outcome of the last two programs, both surrogate mothers got pregnant with twins! Once again, on behalf of the team and our clients, we want to express our heartful gratitude to the doctors of our partner clinics!
Just to let you know, we organize programs both in Kyiv and Lviv clinics. These two clinics operate with the safety procedures and requirements necessary for the current time.
In addition, we arrange surrogacy programs with the frozen embryos grown and kept at the client's place of residence. Our clients can transfer their cryopreserved embryos to Ukraine using a safe courier service. This gives an opportunity for international clients to complete the surrogacy program fully remote.
We wish our Polish clients a calm and healthy pregnancy of their surrogate mothers and a timely meeting of intended parents with their newborns!
We have great news about the newest addition to the family of our clients from Lithuania!
Once again, this program proved that any goal can be achieved if people believe in themselves, and apply all their strengths to make their dreams come true.
Usually, when patients are older than 40 years, doctors recommend including the egg donor in the IVF program. However, our clients were confident in the positive outcome using their biological materials.
As a result, after preimplantation genetic screening for 24 chromosomes, only one embryo was recommended for transfer.
This required the Agency's more careful selection of a surrogate mother, not only from a medical point of view but also incredibly positive personality aimed at success. We reached the goal!
The embryo transfer occurred last December and resulted in a healthy pregnancy. Even the war that began soon after the transfer did not affect the optimism of a surrogate mother who, throughout her pregnancy, shared her positive vibe with intended parents and our team, sending photos and regular updates.
In August, a son was born to our clients in the Kyiv maternity hospital: he weighed 4320 gr. and was 56 cm in height! And a week later, they came back home with a newborn.
God bless them; we are so happy that one more story has a happy ending with our humble help!
We are excited to inform you that we have resumed egg donation programs abroad.
At the end of July, we organized traveling to Cyprus of another group of egg donors. They took part in IVF programs of our clients in one of the Cypriot clinics.
Even though the logistics of trip is more complex now due to the unavailability of a direct flight from Ukraine to Cyprus, we are able to keep the same old price for our egg donation programs.
As usual, our egg donors and medical staff of the clinic were on top during the process. As a result of the follicular puncture doctors retrieved 29, 18 and 40 healthy eggs from 3 egg donors accordingly. We see it as an excellent outcome of the well-organized teamwork of all involved parties.
We wish our clients a long-awaited healthy and smooth pregnancy, and we are looking forward to hearing joyful news from them soon.

We are here to assist you and ready to answer all your questions.
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.

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.
We are glad to share with you some more happy news!
Our Portuguese clients H.M.R. and A.P.B. became proud parents of a beautiful girl born in January.
The little princess was born earlier than expected. Medical personnel of the hospital took great care of her while her parents were on their way to meet their angel for the very first time.
The results of all the necessary medical examinations came back positive and met the requirements. A week after her birthday, the newborn girl was released from the hospital.
In the meantime, the Agency was collecting all the documents necessary to obtain a passport for baby from the consulate of Portugal.
Taking into consideration the tensions occurring on the Russian-Ukrainian border, the Portuguese consulate issued a passport for a child in the shortest term.
Last week a Portuguese couple had already left Ukraine and successfully arrived home with their baby.
P.S. Clients have 14 frozen embryos stored in a Ukrainian clinic. We hope we will have a chance to help them with their second baby soon.
The beginning of this new year has delighted us with the great news of several childbirths that started almost simultaneously.
On January 5th we were thrilled to inform a couple from Portugal M.P.B. and R.G.B. about the birth of their twin: healthy baby boy and girl. Twins were delivered by a planned cesarean-section. The best care was taken about the babies and a surrogate mother, who has been successfully released home after careful monitoring and enough rest at the hospital.
Look at photo of these adorable twins! You can see how little brother and sister share a particularly intense bond. Even after their birth they have this unique closeness, which is charming and fascinating. Let them be there for each other throughout the years.
Happy parents are completing the last steps to go back home: according to the requirements of the Portuguese consulate they are submitting necessary documents to receive passports for their newborn children. All these requirements are known in advance and our clients were prepared for this process.
We wish M.P.B. and R.G.B. and all their big family health, love and happiness!

Time flies so fast but our memories about a charming girl born to a couple from Portugal, A.G. & E.C. in September of 2021 will stay with us.
This was the 2nd surrogacy program of the clients with our Agency. The first one successfully ended with the birth of their son in 2019. It was a pleasure to accompany them in their new journey and help in bringing another adorable baby to their growing family.
The recent program was more challenging because the prenatal screening test indicated values close to the threshold, and these circumstances required closer supervision by the doctors.
The parents exerted great restraint and demonstrated true patience in this situation. They believed in the positive outcome all the way through. If you know the why you can endure any how.
Everything turned out fine in the end. Our happy clients went home to Portugal with their newborn without any issues, and their family celebrated Christmas with a new set of members.

We have received quite a few emails from our clients who are disturbed by the most recent news about the possible aggressive actions from the part of Russia towards Ukraine.
We would like to give more details on this issue below.
In 2014 Ukraine has finalized its development and politics vector in favor of the European integration which implies intentions to enter NATO and European Union. The Russian Federation in its turn wants to keep Ukraine under its influence. Therefore, Ukraine has become ground where interests of current major geopolitical powers collide.
Presently Russia carries Ukraine-related negotiations with the leaders of USA, NATO and the EU. To strengthen its position Russia gathered military forces close to the Ukrainian border as a pure demonstration of power. As opposed to such actions the allies of Ukraine in NATO transferred modern armament to level the threat of invasion.
The negotiations are now under way and according to most qualified opinions the parties must come to find the solution of their discrepancies in a strictly diplomatic way.
In frames of all the above mentioned Ukraine continues its normal peaceful lifestyle and our Agency keeps its working routines without any changes.
