What is the
First, a Surrogate must have medical screening done by the fertility clinics physician, which includes blood tests (if you are in a relationship you partner as well), an ultrasound, and a consultation where the fertility clinics physician will explain the process and answer all questions you may have. You will also see a counsellor to make sure you are emotional stable and they can explain the emotional process and answer any of your questions you may have regarding the emotional aspect of surrogacy.
Once you have been cleared both psychologically and medically, you will receive instructions for medications by the fertility physician. These medications cause your uterine lining to thicken, and prepares it to accept the transferred embryos. After the transfer, you will be on bed rest for 36 hours.
14 days after the transfer, you will have blood work done to find out if the transfer worked. If transfer was a success you will continue with all medications to ensure that the pregnancy remains healthy. After the pregnancy is stable, which is often typically around the 12th week mark. The clinic will instruct you to stop medication and at that point you can continue the journey with your own OB/Midwife.
