3) Preliminary Medical Testing

There are several medical tests you will need to complete before receiving medical approval from our team. Every case is different, so we will let you know which tests are required for your program after your initial consultation.

4) Plan Your Travel

Within the Kira Surrogacy Client App, you will find our curated selection of recommended accommodations for your visit. However, we understand that the final decision rests with you. We kindly request that you inform us of your chosen accommodation, as this enables us to provide dedicated assistance and support throughout your stay. Your comfort and convenience during this period are of utmost importance to us.

5) Clinic Visit

We will coordinate a specific date and time for your visit to the clinic. During this appointment, depending on your personal requirements, the stimulation process for egg collection or sperm preservation will commence. During your visit, you’ll have the opportunity to tour our facility and receive a medical consultation. If additional follow-up appointments are required, we will inform you accordingly, ensuring a smooth and coordinated experience.

6) IVF

After obtaining your genetic material, the next step is to create embryos via in vitro fertilization. If an egg donor is needed, we’ll plan the retrieval during her next menstrual cycle. If you’re using your own eggs, the timeline depends on your menstrual cycle. After retrieval, the eggs are fertilized and allowed to incubate until they reach the blastocyst stage. Once ready, we will provide your embryology report through the Kira Surrogacy Client App for your convenience.

7) Surrogate Match

You will be matched with a screened, medically approved surrogate once your embryos have been created. It’s important to note that all potential surrogates have already gone through rigorous screening, including psychological evaluations, medical examinations, and thorough background checks. These measures ensure the surrogate is in good health – physically, emotionally, and mentally – and ready to take on the responsibilities of a surrogate pregnancy. Once a surrogate has been selected, the agency will work on legal agreements and contracts to protect the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved.

8) Embryo Transfer

Your selected embryo is carefully thawed, ensuring its viability, and then transferred into the uterus of your surrogate using a thin catheter. Following the transfer, your surrogate is advised to rest and undergoes monitoring to track the progress of the embryo implantation.

9) Pregnancy Testing

After the embryo transfer, there are several pregnancy tests conducted. The first test is a blood test to check for elevated HCG levels. If it’s positive, the next test looks for a developing gestational sac. If a sac is detected, an ultrasound is performed around 5 to 6 weeks after the transfer to check for a heartbeat. If a heartbeat is detected, the pregnancy is confirmed, and we will continue providing care for your surrogate throughout the pregnancy. In case any of the pregnancy tests yield a negative result, another embryo transfer can be scheduled. Alternatively, if more embryos are needed, an additional egg retrieval would be the next step.

10) Pregnancy, Delivery, and Exit Process

Throughout the pregnancy, your surrogate will attend regular care appointments with our team. After each appointment, we will provide you with a summary of the pregnancy progress, including any ultrasound images. As the delivery date approaches, we will inform you of the expected delivery date, allowing you to plan your return trip accordingly. If you are a US citizen, anticipate being in Mexico for about four weeks to obtain your baby’s US passport. For citizens of other countries, the duration of stay may vary slightly based on your home country’s requirements.
