Gestational Surrogacy


The Rotunda Gestational Surrogacy / Gestational Carrier ART Program

Rotunda offers Gestational Surrogacy in India.

All surrogates taken into our program are between 21-35 years of age. They are made to run through basic serological screening tests as well as an infectious disease screen. They are also screened for Thalassemia.

We will be starting the surrogate on Estrogen tablets to prepare her endometrium from the first day of her menses. Subsequently, Gonadotropin injections will be started for the genetic mother from day 2 of her menses. The genetic mother will be taking an injection daily for approximately 11 days by which time she will have formed mature eggs in both her ovaries. The egg pick-up will be around Day13 and the genetic father will be required to give his semen sample on that day. An ultrasound guided embryo transfer will be done for the surrogate by Day15. She will then be on certain tablets & injections for luteal support and a pregnancy test done 15 days later will confirm if she is pregnant.

You will be required in our surrogacy clinic in India for a maximum of fifteen days initially to undergo the IVF cycle and your subsequent visit can be directly around the expected date of confinement of the surrogate. Regular updates about the surrogate’s progress will be given to you by e-mail. The surrogate will be under the care of our efficient obstetricians till term and delivered in a hospital set up. The baby will be handed to the Genetic parents/Intended parent immediately after birth.

Birth certificate will be issued in the name of the Genetic parents/Intended parent. You are requested to find out prevailing laws in your country or from your respective consulate in Mumbai to facilitate and expedite the process for you to carry your baby back to your hometown (Read this letter about Surrogacy Issues Involving Foreigners). We also offer to help you with contact with a lawyer to expedite your paperwork.

The Indian Health Ministry has appointed the Indian Council For Medical Research (ICMR) to formulate guidelines for supervising Assisted Reproductive Clinics in India. The ICMR has formulated guidelines after debates and consensus after two years of multi-city meetings & national debates. The guidelines can be found on the ICMR official website (Chapter 3 of the guidelines lists the Surrogacy requirements and Birth Certificate details). These guidelines are due to be tabled in the Indian Parliament for them to be passed as a Law. Presently, all IVF clinics are supposed to work under these Guidelines which should be considered “legal”. We have been coordinating and helping intended parents with paper-work requested by various consulates and have enough experience to guide you to correspond with your respective consulate in Mumbai.

We encourage potential patients to talk to parents from abroad who have already completed their families using our Surrogacy Program. Please refer to Our Global Ambassadors.
