Our surrogacy program at IVF New Jersey serves couples from Britain who wish to have children, but are unable to carry a pregnancy to term. For women who are unable to safely carry a child to term due to a absent or damaged uterus and gay couples who are physically unable to produce a child, surrogacy is the often the only option. IVF New Jersey is a full-service fertility and surrogacy agency dedicated to helping couples from around the UK complete their families.

The Surrogacy Treatment Process
Before the embryo can be implanted into the uterus of the surrogate, legal paperwork must be completed, including an agreement of compensation between the parties involved. Attorney Melissa Brisman has worked with IVF New Jersey for several years, guiding couples through the legalities of the surrogacy treatment process from finding a suitable surrogate to ensuring that the names of the couple are on the birth certificate. When the couple has found a suitable carrier, the prospective carrier will then undergo a background check and medical and psychological examinations. Once the carrier has passed these examinations and the background check, an insurance policy – purchased by the couple to cover the health of the surrogate during the pregnancy – is reviewed by the couple’s lawyer or Ms. Brisman and the attorney representing the surrogate. After everyone has approved of the arrangements made, including compensation, insurance, etc., all parties sign a contract to bind the agreement. Once the preliminary legal hurdles are out of the way, the medical treatments can begin.
Traditional Surrogacy Process
Couples may opt for traditional surrogacy when the female cannot produce healthy eggs. In this case, the eggs from the surrogate may be fertilized with sperm from the woman’s partner or a donor. The fertilization process occurs in the uterus through artificial insemination. In this type of surrogacy, the fetus can be related biologically to the surrogate.
Gestational Surrogacy Process
Our surrogacy program focuses on gestational surrogacy. This type of surrogacy is an option for couples where the female can produce healthy eggs, but the chances of a high-risk pregnancy make it impossible, possibly because of damage in the uterus. Gestational surrogacy is also used when the woman cannot produce eggs, but the couple chooses to use a donor egg. Eggs are harvested from the woman or a donor and fertilized with sperm from her partner through in vitro fertilization (IVF). The resulting embryo is transferred to the uterus of the surrogate.
