Surrogacy in Colombia

Colonbia

Surrogacy in Colombia is available to everyone, offering a unique alternative for homosexuals, singles and couples who are looking for a more affordable option.

The Surrogates:

All of our Surrogates are local Colombian women and reside in Bogotá. They all undergo a lengthy and rigorous screening process before being accepted in to the program and they must have had at least one healthy baby derived from a successful pregnancy. During the pregnancy, the surrogates live with their families and maintain their lifestyles as per usual. They have regular visits with Dr Pedro Martinez at our clinic, who monitors their pregnancies according to standard Western pregnancy protocols. They undergo all the customary pregnancy tests in addition to periodic blood tests to ensure that their overall health is satisfactory and on track for a successful birth. The surrogates are generously compensated for the service they provide, and this process enables them to secure a future for their children and their families.

The Egg Donors:

Our Egg Donors are all local Colombian women, many of whom qualify and enter our program as premium egg donors. They are all required to perform the egg extraction procedure at our clinic in Bogotá. All of the Tammuz Family egg donors undergo psychological and medical screening and IP’s are provided with the donor’s genetic profile, medical history, family medical history, education, employment history, interests/hobbies and a selection of current pictures.

Our Clinic:

All IVF procedures, including embryo transfers, will be carried out at Celagem clinic in Bogotá. The clinic is located in one of the best areas of the city in the north in a brand-new sate of the art medical building that also houses a 4-star hotel, making travel for international Intended Parents extremely convenient. The clinic is also an advanced centre for reproductive medicine and the medical director, lab personnel, geneticists, nursing staff, psychologist, and coordinators all work together to provide the best possible service for our Intended Parents. In addition, our team is bilingual so all questions can be answered in either Spanish and/or English. Pregnancy monitoring will also be done at Celagem clinic. 

Dr. Pedro Martinez

We are proud to collaborate with Dr. Pedro Martinez, a leading fertility specialist in Colombia who has assisted thousands of parents on their IVF journeys over the last 20 years. He is the founder of 10 health institutions including fertility clinics and genetics and molecular biology laboratories in Venezuela, Colombia and the Dominican Republic.

He started the first genetics and biology laboratory in the city of Bogotá with a focus on reproductive health and an emphasis on pre-implantation genetic diagnosis of diseases. In addition, he was the first to use Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) for 24 chromosome analysis and the additional analysis of mosaicism in pre-implantation embryos. He works jointly with genetics societies and patient societies of Colombia and Venezuela and has a vast knowledge of the diagnosis of this type of pathology.

He is currently the lab director of several fertility clinics in Colombia, Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic including the general director of our fertility clinic in Bogotá. Dr. Martinez is fully bilingual in English and Spanish.

Pregnancy protocols:

The pregnancy protocol is rigorous and set to Western standards and will include monthly ultrasounds, nuchal translucency, GTT, anomaly examinations, etc.

Legal Services: 

We are pleased to work together with Attorney Fernandez Garcia, who will assist and advise our Intended Parents throughout their surrogacy journeys on all the relevant legal processes in Colombia. His services will include drafting the contract between the Intended Parents and the surrogate, as well as registering the baby immediately after birth. The biological father’s name will be listed on the birth certificate in addition to the surrogate’s name. The surrogate will then sign a legal document relinquishing all maternal rights which then automatically triggers the process for her name to be removed from the birth certificate. This procedure should take approximately 4 weeks from the birth of the child.

What happens after the birth?

In most instances our case managers will guide you on the exit process however we encourage all Intended Parents to do their due diligence and seek advice from a local immigration lawyer to ensure you are abiding by all local laws with regards to babies born via an international surrogate agreement.

HIV+ Intended Parents:

Tammuz Family is also proud to lead the surrogacy revolution among couples and individuals who are HIV+. This represents a welcoming change in stereotypes and allows these families to become an inseparable and integral part of the broader community. Advanced fertility technology enables couples and individuals who are living with HIV to undergo IVF and conceive perfectly healthy children. Intended Parents fly to Bogotá and undergo specific tests at our clinic before the ‘sperm washing’ procedure commences. After the testing phase is completed, the sperm washing phase is carried out. Sperm washing is now internationally recognised as being a safe procedure. In May 2017, after reviewing reports on 11,500 assisted conception cycles that used the sperm washing technique, during which no woman or offspring contracted HIV, the US Government’s Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined the process was safe enough to endorse.

Plans:

Costs are inclusive and cover all medical and legal procedures, as well as the surrogate’s and baby’s health insurances (hospitalization, neonatal ICU and medical complications).
