Screening of a Surrogate Mother
According to Order № 787 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine "On Approval of the Application of Assisted Reproductive Technologies in Ukraine", a medical checkup of a surrogate mother is carried out according to the requirements for the treatment by the assisted reproductive technology.
The surrogate mother is examined repeatedly: initially at the stage of submitting her candidacy for a program, and later she undergoes final testing before the preparation for an embryo transfer. During her pregnancy, each time the surrogate mother visits a clinic to examine the baby. Additionally, she undergoes obligatory examinations so that doctors can monitor the progress of the pregnancy. If certain indicators do not meet the requirements, the surrogate mother should undergo additional checkups or take prescribed therapy.
From our side, we control the fulfilment of all doctor's prescriptions by the surrogate mother, her timely visits to the clinic for ultrasound scans, planned or additional medical examinations, taking of medications, etc.
According to the contract between the surrogate mother and the intended parents, the surrogate mother should guarantee a healthy pregnancy. We strive always to be sure that she does all the things needed. Therefore, we have prepared a list of healthy pregnancy tips which are also included in the contract.
Do the Parents have a right to visit a baby in the maternity hospital?
Sure, you have the right to see your baby before discharge from the maternity hospital. However, prior to that, you should obtain permission from the hospital and doctors as well as undergo the necessary examinations (such as fluorography etc.). You will be individually notified about all the requirements for the visit to the maternity hospital.
When should a child be picked up from the maternity hospital?
The discharge of a child from the maternity hospital is directly related to the discharge of a surrogate mother. Before the notarial refusal is signed, the surrogate mother is still considered to be the mother of the child. Within 3-5 days after baby delivery, the surrogate mother and the baby can be discharged from the maternity hospital provided there are no contraindications and health issues for both of them.
