I have already had one program with them. It is "Ideal Package" and, actually, I have switched my contract to another one. Yes, I am happy with them. In spite of some small issues, they are doing a great thing. I know what to expect from them and know that I will get the result. I had one negative and one positive but miscarried so they suggested me to switch to surrogacy. I agreed.Chico said:#odashwood so have you signed up with BTC ? And are you happy with them?
Thank you, hun! I am so excited and it seems to me that this feeling is increasing every second! I am smiling as never before))) I am full of hope and strength. I am ready to fight for my future!Chico said:I wish you every luck in the world
Thank you hun. How are you? Haven't heard from you for some time. I hope you are okay. I have already found several donors for us and passed this information to our doctor. Now they are going to check if they are available. I very hope so)miamiamo said:Good luck x
Hi SumSum1 said:Hi Chico,
I have been working with Intersono since February last year and my surrogate is now 30 weeks pregnant. They have been a great support and more importantly, very efficient and professional at all times.
They are more expensive than other clinics but we were lucky enough to fall pregnant on our second attempt so the difference is marginal.
The thing I love most about them is the access they give to the Surrogate. You are free to meet them at any point and as often as you like (as long as the Surrogate is agreeable, of course). They answer all questions directly and provide proof if asked.
I know you can never be sure about what happens behind closed doors but they have made me feel consistently reassured.
Let me know if I can provide any further information.
great news, congrats. Intersono is known to be one of the most realible clinics in UkraineI have been working with Intersono since February last year and my surrogate is now 30 weeks pregnant. They have been a great support and more importantly, very efficient and professional at all times.
That's so great to hear about a good experience and outcome)). My congratulations with your 21 weeks). I have heard about all of these clinics and considered only Illaya as an option but have proceeded with another place.singlepop said:Hello... first posting here in a long while.....
Summer of 2018 I has done my research and narrowed my agencies to Illaya (Kyiv), New Life (Kyiv) and La Vita Nova (Kharkiv). I flew to Ukraine to visit each personally, meet with the staff and tour the facilities.
Illaya was the most modern and had been profiled in a UK news piece (The Independent, I think) about Ukraine surrogacy. In the article, the Ukrainian surrogate had related that she chose to work with Ilaya for her second surrogacy, after a bad first experience elsewhere and on the basis of recommendations from other surrogates.
La Vita Nova I had a referral from someone I trusted who had a child through them.
Of the 3, Illaya was the most professional and modern. (And expensive). If you want a very comfortable experience, at the high end and its within your budget. I'd be comfortable going with them. New Life seemed fine but I didn't have any specific info to choose them.
I ended up choosing La Vita Nova after my visit there, due to the personal reference and the fact that the surrogates generally live close to the Kharkiv. (Many of the surrogates that work via Kyiv clinins, have to travel far and more infrequently for checkups). It was less expensive, but the surrogates seemed well treated. Several of the candidates had been surrogates with them before; which is a good sign.
La Vita Nova has been mostly great. Very responsive, the surrogate they matched me with seems to be well supported. At times its been hard to track finances, but most of the confusion has been around changes to the package we've requested as things progressed. They immediately had several surrogate canidates available, so as soon as we signed the contract, we were ready to start with donor selection. I have made 4 trips now to Ukraine... 1 to evaluate agencies (Kyiv/Kharkiv), two for IVF (Lviv) and one to be present for the 16 week ultrasound and to meet Julia. Its more expensive and a bit of a hassle to travel to Kharkiv, rather than Kyiv; and after the baby is born, we'll all need to travel by train to Kyiv to do the paper work with the US embassy. But the experience with LVN has been great.
IVF and transfers are handled by Intersono in Lviv; which has a good reputation for that work. It did mean that the egg donor and Julia, the surrogate,had to travel by overnight train across the country for it. The first IVF failed at an odd point; so I had to pay out of pocket for a 2nd round with a new egg donor. The 2nd IVF worked and the first transfer of a single embryo was successful.
We're now 21 weeks pregnant... a girl. Due date is this spring. Excited!!!
