The new and innovative family building option.
For many, the path to parenthood is not always how they may have envisioned, especially after experiencing a long road of infertility. Surrogacy happens to be that ray of hope in the life of childless couples.
Giving birth does not make you a mother, you earn that title by giving your child unconditional love, care and nurturing.
In Gestational surrogacy, a surrogate or a gestational carrier does not have a genetic tie to the child she carries.
The intended patents undergo in-vitro fertilisation to form embryos which are transferred to the surrogate. In certain circumstances one of the intended parent(s) will contribute their egg or sperm but a donor sperm or donor egg or even a donated embryo is used in the process.
Your Surrogacy process begins with an in-clinic consultation with our fertility specialist
We will be sharing a database of women from surrogate agencies who would be willing to carry your embryo full term.
Once you’ve chosen a surrogate, we will bring them in for a fertility evaluation. This helps us put together a thorough plan to understand where she stands, if she is suitable and what will be needed to prepare her womb for a successful and healthy gestation.
Once you have finalised your surrogate and she clears the health checks, a legal attorney will be involved to draw up a contract between Grace Fertility, the intended parents and the surrogate.
Meanwhile, we will get started on your IVF procedure to form your biological embryos.

We will put the surrogate on medication to prepare her endometrial lining so that once the embryo is transferred, the implantation is successful.
Your embryo that was created through IVF, will be transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. This is a quick 5-10 minute non surgical procedure.
2 weeks after the embryo transfer, we will test the surrogate for pregnancy to ensure the embryo has implanted and has started growing into a foetus.
Throughout the 9-month gestation of the surrogate, we will be monitoring her closely every 10 days to ensure the health of your child.
The surrogate will deliver the baby under our supervision at a hospital of your choice and the child will immediately be handed over to you.
You should always be in a position where you have options on your hand instead of irreversible consequences.
