Miscarriages in surrogacyUnfortunately, the human body is not an exact science. And pregnancy depends on many factors thanks to which it’s born to the term and we can hold our baby in our arms. However, it’s clear that thanks to the correct job both of the IVF clinic and the surrogacy agency the risk factors are minimal. But what are these factors?
First 3 months
The first 12-14 weeks of pregnancy are assocsited with a major potential risk of a miscarriage. It’s in this period the embryo starts developing fast and its cells continue multiplying. Any chromosomal alteration can cause a loss of the embryo. Is it possible to avoid it?
Well, once a transfer of an embryo to the surrogate’s uterus done – an embryo transfer – little can be done more there basing only on the surrogate’s life style and rest. However, there are various preliminary tests to check if the embryo is free of chromosomal problems. We mean PGD and PGS.
Of course tests and checks that can be done by an IVF clinic are vital to avoid a miscarriage. However, it’s equally important that the quality if the embryo should be good. It can be estimated by the biological material given by the intended parents, or in the absence of it, that of an egg or sperm donor.
We have to say that we should be very careful in selecting donors and make sure that their material is of good quality, as a bad selection may cost us a lot.
For this reason it’s very important to rely on the experience and medical criteria of a surrogacy agency . And the same is for the surrogate: she has to be healthy, pshysically and pscycologically, to bear pregnancy to the term. And this is a responsibility of the surrogacy agency as well. Insist on your criteria and aks them to be responsible. It’s their work, but it’s your future child! people like this post
