Looking for a Charleston Surrogacy Clinic?
A Charleston surrogacy requires some complicated medical steps before a pregnancy is achieved. Fortunately, surrogacy clinics (also known as fertility clinics) can take care of these steps safely and ethically.
Most intended parents have a surrogacy clinic in mind when starting their Charleston surrogacy. They can often work with that professional, whether it is located in Charleston or not. But, if a clinic is far away from a gestational surrogate, intended parents must pay for her travel and lodging costs during these initial steps. After a pregnancy is confirmed, that surrogate will receive prenatal care from her local obstetrician.
A surrogacy clinic in Charleston or elsewhere in the South will take care of a few important steps:
- Screening, to confirm both parties are medically and psychologically ready for surrogacy
- Creating embryos for in vitro fertilization
- Prescribing a surrogate fertility medication and monitoring her cycle
- Transferring the intended parents’ embryo
If you don’t have a surrogacy clinic in South Carolina, please contact one prior to working with our program. A reproductive endocrinologist will confirm that gestational surrogacy in Charleston is an option for you. Get started with these local options:
- Coastal Fertility Specialists
- The Fertility Center of Charleston
- Fertility Center of the Carolinas
- Piedmont Reproductive Endocrinology Group
- Reproductive Endocrinology Associates of Charlotte
