For some couples, the road to starting a new life as a family has medical or other considerations that get in the way of a traditional pregnancy and childbirth. One alternative, however, is surrogacy, where a woman agrees to undertake pregnancy on behalf of a hopeful couple. Once the baby is born, the infant is united with the couple to start their new life together as a family.
While surrogacy is widely practiced throughout the world, there is a preference on the part of some couples to travel abroad and have a surrogate pregnancy take place in another country. There are plenty of reasons for this, including considerations of cost and choice, and it’s because of these factors that Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia in Eastern Europe, is a popular destination for many.
If you’re thinking of paying a personal visit to Tbilisi, there are plenty of things to do and certain agencies, such as Stork Surrogacy, that you should be thinking of evaluating as part of your search for the perfect surrogacy clinic partner.
The country of Georgia sits at a literal crossroads, as it is located in far eastern Europe and was, during the days of trade on the “silk road,” one of the nations considered a gateway between east and west. As a result of this location, Georgia has a culture, language, and history all its own. It has retained its independence, being neither a member of the European Union nor allied with nations of the Soviet era.
However, because of its independence and association with Western nations, Georgia, in general, and Tbilisi, in particular, enjoy the benefits of being a developed nation. This includes a robust transport infrastructure and modern amenities such as up-to-date, cutting-edge medical facilities, experienced, highly trained medical staff living and working within the city, and more conveniences such as robust nightlife, food, and culture to make for a memorable stay for tourist and recreational purposes, in addition to for surrogacy needs.
Perhaps most importantly, Tbilisi is very friendly to surrogacy-focused couples. Georgia’s constitution protects the rights of hopeful couples, provided all Georgian surrogacy laws are properly observed throughout the pregnancy and birth of a child. Tbilisi also has much experience dealing with expatriate couples from all parts of the world, whether Chinese or American, for helping a couple to have a baby and start a family.
Stork Surrogacy Has Options
Stork Surrogacy Service is a comprehensive agency that helps couples through every phase of the surrogacy process. Many surrogacy agencies have only one function, albeit an important one; finding the right surrogate mother for the right couple. However, for many couples, there are still complex considerations that need to be addressed even after the right surrogate has been matched to the right couple.
This is where Stork Surrogacy excels, as it shepherds couples through any additional needs and procedures that may be relevant to their experience. Part of Stork’s ability to do this is through an understanding that the best way to offer top-tier service is to work with top-tier talent. Stork Surrogacy has recognized the many outstanding surrogacy organizations within Tbilisi that have successfully started new families for many couples and have forged alliances with them to ensure that the right clinic, medical center, or laboratory is paired with the right couple to ensure their distinct needs are being met.
The GGRC clinic is a one-stop shop for a variety of different surrogacy needs. Assistance with locating a suitable surrogate mother can be provided if required. However, services extend beyond that to even help with legal considerations regarding returning to the country of residence, ensuring that issues of citizenship for the newborn are resolved before returning home.
Zhordania IVF Center
Zhordania Clinic is a Tbilisi facility ideal for more elaborate surrogacy needs. If there is a requirement for in vitro fertilization, or IVF, which requires that the egg and sperm are fertilized in a laboratory setting and then implanted in the surrogate mother, this facility is a good choice for these more demanding techniques. The staff is experienced, and the equipment is up to date.
Chachava Medical Center
The Chachava Medical Center has been in operation for over 100 years, first opening its doors to Georgian patients in 1875 and eventually welcoming couples from around the world interested in surrogacy. For pregnancy, birth, and reproductive health concerns, this medical center has been helping many couples achieve their dreams of finally starting a family, whether within the couple itself or through the help of a surrogate mother.
Inova IVF Center
Inova IVF center is young, having only gone into operation in 2015. Still, despite not having the legacy of an older medical center, Inova has quickly established itself as a place in Georgia to go for cutting-edge health treatment and advanced surrogacy needs.
Inova can help with general gynecological concerns and the specific needs of couples wanting IVF surrogacy.
