    Hi. I have been going through surrogacy process for almost 2 years and can say for sure that my life has changed since I started. Because of lack of money for surrogacy in the US I had to start with Ukrainin agency. It’s not a surprise I believe as after India approved that Bill in 2016, hundreds of couples need to look for other attractive options. Basically treatment in Ukraine is not that cheap but still it makes a huge difference if comparing to what we have here. Of course, going for treatment somewhere that far causes lots of concerns but we are coping with inconveniences. It was also nice of our agency to provide us with accommodation and transfer for the whole stay in Ukraine. Not sure if any agency does this. Well, so far so good and neither me nor my husband have complaints but we’ll see. I would be delighted to know I’m not the only one having treatment abroad.

    Yeah dear! Hello! Calm down. You’re not the single person who chose Ukraine. After long searches and mistakes I have decided to have my journey there.
    learning the pros and cons list I found lots advantages which can’t be provided in other possible destinations.
    and my husband and I are really happy due to it.
    When will you have the next visit?

    Hi Carrlow. I’m so glad I got a reply from you. How did you make a final decision? I mean what was helpful? I for one contacted a few clinics and all of them seemed great and pretty reliable but I had to look for testimonials on the web. Only this made me confident in our next step. What stage are you in now?
    We are going to Kiev in few months, closer to due dates I think. There is no need to be there earlier

    How was it? Mmm. Not easy.
    Just imagine you are just advised to start considering surrogacy after long road you had already walked up! What I mean when say the road. This is a billion appointments, failed ivf, plenty of heavy discussions.
    I didn’t know how to move on.
    Spending my time on the forums I couldn’t get confident in my future choice.
    The strongest impulse I got was after I found a community of people involved in fertility journeys.
    It was really helpful.

    Hey there. It was very nice of you to share your experience with us. I have been TTC with my DH for the past 10 years and I have also come to the point of opting for surrogacy in the foreign because of the high prices locally. I do not really want to waste more money to face more failures. This time I am thinking of keeping my hopes not that high and go for a reasonable treatment. I have read a lot about this particular clinic too and I have really heard only nice things about it. It is glad that I got to find your post and got to hear your experience over there. I have visited their website but I am really not sure if the prices that they are mentioning over there for their packages is gonna be the exact ones. I mean many clinics have nice things and low prices written on their websites but when you get there they double their prices by adding extra charges for stupid things. I just want to make sure that this clinic does not do such a thing because I have saved up for this treatment with a lot of difficulties and really want to get the treatment soon instead of investing more time into saving. I am very glad to hear your experience. Please, do share some details and keep us updated.

    Hey Missha! Hope you’re doing great. It feels great to have someone in the same boat but a little bit more experienced. Since I have high levels of FSH and low levels of AMH my doctor told us that my ovarian reserve was poor. I did try 2 cycles of IVF but both failed. So now DH and I have started our research on the clinics for surrogacy. Honestly, everywhere I researched especially in the US is so expensive. For both of us, the major concern is the financial problem. However, at the same time, we want a baby as well. Hearing about your review, I will visit their site and check for myself as well(link, if provided, will be helpful). I just want to go somewhere where the success rate is also high since I cant accept a failure anyone. I hope you can understand. I guess that is the only reason why I myself am willing to go somewhere abroad. When it comes to being a mother, the feeling is pretty mutual so is the extent. Best of luck to you. All my warm wishes are with you.

    We was together 7 years and childless… Finally i am mother))) my baby Bee was borned in May 2016 )
    I used international surrogacy. Actually I hadn’t enough money to have surrogacy in US and pay for every attempt, so I decided for surrogacy trip in Ukraine. One clinic made a very attractive offer, which included everything we needed abroad ( I mean accommodation, meals, translator, transportation, medical treatment, medications, unlimited attempts, child registration, pediatrician, babysitter and so on).

    Hey there Missha! Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Surrogacy in the US is very expensive and their services are not much good either. So you went to Ukraine for surrogacy, I heard a lot about one clinic there. Many people are sharing their success stories with that clinic, I m not much sure if that clinic is the best option for me, but after reading such good reviews about it, I think maybe it is worth one shot. After a lot of research for my surrogacy, I m also heading towards that clinic in Ukraine too. It’s not much expensive there, it is a little bit but it’s much less than other countries. So don’t worry you are not the only who’s going to have treatment abroad. I m just hoping that the service is good and the treatment is successful. Because if I fail after this, I will be left with nothing. I have tried almost everything and this is the only money I have now, saving it from years. Please sprinkle some baby dust on me and wish me luck. Much Love!

    um, to be honest, my financial status does not even allow me to go through surrogacy in the states. Especially now with the situation with taxes Its honestly just better to get it done from abroad. Catering for other expenses such as travelling, hotelling, dining etc through the somewhat research I have done you can still save around 20-30k. The truth of the matter is, one should be financially smart while making these decisions and should keep in mind the simplicity and complexity of the process.The main reason I’m so bent towards surrogacy from abroad is mostly due to the fact that surrogacy can be done through any fertile women as long as she is perfectly healthy and has had no previous issues like kidney disorders and what not.So why spend thousands of dollars more and if you look closely at the numbers you’ll see that the major difference in money is mostly due to the surrogate mother fee.This, in other words, means that the medical facilities provided to the SM are somewhat the same. The legal cost is more than 10 times higher. All in all the medical facilities are somewhat the same because of the nature of the procedure. I have come across a clinic which seems to cater for most of these concerns and currently in contact with them. If you guys have any question or need the link to the place where I am getting my numbers from contacting me and I would love to talk to you.Take care, you guys.

    I’m also going to Ukraine for my surrogacy.
    I had 3 miscarriages during my first marriage.I always had complications while getting pregnant.Now i’m married for second time at the age of 43. Having a look at my previous pregnancies i guess it is not a good idea to be pregnant again. So i persuaded my husband to go for surrogacy and he is ready to go for it if we will have a baby of our own DNA.
    So i started looking out for good clinics regarding surrogacy.I researched over the web and found many clinics regarding surrogacy.
    While i was researching about surrogacy i came across the name of biotexcom clinic many times. Having very good positive reviews.So i contacted that clinic and told them about my issue.They said they will help us in every possible way.They told me about their procedure and they will help us in every aspect. They told us that we can have baby of our own DNA sample. Surrogate mother will not have any effect on our child. She will just keep our child in her womb. The clinic will find a good surrogate for our baby. They will test her and will analyze if she can carry our child in her womb or not.
    If someone has some experience regarding surrogacy let me know your experience than.

    Hi, Missha! This is amazing. You are doing something for yourself. You’re not losing hope. And that’s what matters the most. You’re a strong lady, indeed. Clinics in Ukraine are really good. I’ve also had my surrogacy process from Ukraine. The clinic offered great services. And I was glad I chose the right clinic. So yeah, you’re not alone to go for this treatment in abroad. I’m happy to hear your experience. It’s good that you are totally satisfied with the clinic. It would be really nice of you to share some details of the clinic. What do they charge? How are their services? It would be helpful to people who are searching best clinics. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hey, Missha. I hope you are well. I loved reading about your surrogacy experience. I’m so glad it worked out for you and made your dream come true. I went to Ukraine for my surrogacy. It happened a couple of years and a half ago. My baby is nine months old now. The process didn’t take much time for me. Adoption takes so much time. I don’t think I would’ve been able to wait that long. The hardest part of it came after my application. They started looking for a surrogate that matched me. It took them three months to find me one. I know three months is not that long a time but I got really anxious. I thought of me being a mother seemed too good to be true. But it is true now and I couldn’t be happier.

    This is some thing great. I am surprised to see the huge database system of this clinic. Data is gold and you have all the data about this. This is the way we can be successful in our surrogacy treatment. I personally like it very much. I was confused in start about the procedure of choosing the egg donor.I’ve done surrogacy twice through that clinic..I must tell you it’s the best one.I found it with a lot difficulty.But I got the fruit of my hard work.Both of the time it went incredible.I’m so glad by the fact that now I’ve two beautiful children.And it’s all because of my clinic.All the doctors are so supportiveYou should surely get it done from there ,I’m sure it’ll benefit you.Good Luck.

    Hi! I think it’s lovely you’re going for surrogacy. I’m always happy to see a fellow IP. I also went abroad for this. I think it’s amazing what the clinic provided with the free accommodation, food, and transport. So nice of them. I can’t be thankful enough for the experience they gave me. And of course the little girl I got to bring home. My little girl. I wish everyone the same happiness. I hope they all get it. I’m glad people are more open to these treatments nowadays. My family was skeptical at first, but they soon realized there was nothing wrong with it. Good luck to everyone on the same journey.
