Gestational surrogacy uses an embryo created outside of the surrogate mother’s body, and the embryo is then implanted into the surrogate’s uterus. Using IVF, intended parents can establish a biological relationship to the child by using their own sperm and/or eggs. The eggs are fertilized in an IVF facility outside of the woman’s body, and the embryo is transferred to the gestational carrier’s uterus. Intended parents may also use donor eggs and/or donor sperm to make their embryos. Reproductive Possibilities works exclusively with gestational surrogacy arrangements.
We knew from the first minutes of our first meeting with Melissa that we wanted to work with her and that she and her team would not rest until we had our baby. That was the one thing that was definitive to us in this complicated, roller coaster of a process.
Our experience with Melissa was just as she promised. She described the type of surrogate she thought would be right for us and then went out and found her – an extraordinary woman and her extraordinary family. Melissa guided us to the perfect right clinic and the specific doctor there that would be the right match for us. And just as she described – after our baby was born in VA, all the paperwork to have both of our names on the birth certificate was taken care of by the hospital and her office.
And through it all we were gently guided with enthusiasm, kindness, care and love.
