What are the procedures followed for surrogacy treatment?

Transferring fertilized egg, that don’t belong to the surrogate mother, into her uterus to achieve pregnancy, is permitted with judicial permission granted before the transfer, as long as there is a written and free agreement of the persons seeking to have a child and the woman who will become pregnant, as well as her husband, if she is married.

Judicial permission is granted upon application by the woman who wishes to have a child, if it is proven that she is medically unable to conceive and that the woman offering to carry the baby is medically suitable for pregnancy.

The suitability of all involved for this procedure is determined by standardized infertility assessment, suitability tests, psychological counseling, and other medical procedures, as required by Greek law or deemed medically necessary by the attending physician.

Surrogacy involves one or more cycles of IVF, where eggs are collected, fertilized, cultured and transferred into the surrogate’s uterus in a frozen embryo transfer cycle.
