Black & African Surrogacy

Here at Ebony Concept, we are pleased to offer African and black surrogacy in the UK to women and couples who are seeking an appropriate black or African surrogate mother.

Recurrent miscarriage or pregnancy demise

Repeated failure of IVF treatment

Premature menopause

Absent or abnormal womb

Need to avoid pregnancy because of a serious risk to health

Same-sex parents wanting to have a child

Surrogacy

Surrogacy is increasingly becoming an option for starting a family for people who are unable to conceive a child themselves. Although you’re not alone, we recognise that your need of a surrogacy service puts you in the unique category of women/men for whom an even more sensitive and so, a tailored approach is essential.

The demand for black surrogate mothers in the UK continues to rise simply due to their being a small number available. Here at Ebony Concept, we are thrilled to be able to facilitate this service for women and couples alike to allow them the chance to have a child.

    What Are You Interested In?

    Traditional Black & African Surrogacy

    Traditional surrogacy is when the surrogate provides her own eggs to achieve the pregnancy. The intended father provides a sperm sample that is utilised for artificial insemination into the surrogate in a natural or stimulated cycle (IUI) or for IVF treatment if either the surrogate or intended father has fertility issues. A black or African surrogate will undergo IVF which uses your eggs and the sperm of the father. 

    Gestational Black & African Surrogacy

    Gestational surrogacy is when the surrogate doesn’t provide her own egg to achieve the pregnancy. In such pregnancies, embryos are generated in the lab using an IVF procedure before they are transferred into the womb of the surrogate. There are various options for sourcing gametes (eggs, sperm and embryos) that are utilised for host surrogacy:

    Eggs of the intended mother fertilised with sperm of the intended father

    Eggs of the intended mother fertilised with donor sperm

    Eggs of a donor fertilised with sperm of the intended father, where the intended mother cannot use her own eggs

    Eggs of a donor fertilised with sperm of a donor, where the intended mother and father cannot use their own eggs/sperm

    Donated embryos generated from eggs and sperm of embryo donors

    Ebony Concept is pleased to support you all through the surrogacy pathway including:

    Deciding which black or African surrogate to work with

    Reaching an agreement about how things will work

    Trying to get pregnant via In-Vitro Fertilisation

    Supporting each other through pregnancy and then childbirth

    Applying for a parental order to transfer legal parenthood

    Helping your child understand the circumstances of their birth

    There is lots of information available regarding our African surrogacy service so if you would like to find out more, or if you would like to speak to one of our fertility experts before making an appointment, please call 07557 656251 today. 

    The Surrogacy Process

    1. Getting Started

    The first step to take when you are considering surrogacy, is to book a consultation with one of our expert fertility consultants. During this meeting they will undertake a review of your medical history and discuss any previous treatments or consultations you may have undergone. This process will allow them to make an informed recommendation about the best course of treatment for you.

    This process will usually involve you undergoing some blood tests. At this point we will also analyse a semen sample. There is a requirement for sperm to be quarantined for between 91-180 days dependent on the screening process, prior to the commencement of any treatment.

    Your surrogate will be required to take a scan, along with a number of blood tests. They will also need to provide evidence that they have received legal advice around the surrogacy process. A safeguarding letter will then be issued to both your GP and that of your surrogate before any treatment can begin.

    We feel that it is important for any patients considering the use of donor eggs to conceive, to meet with an independent counsellor to get a clear understanding of the implications around surrogacy. You will need to have individual counselling sessions, which should then be followed by a joint session.

    2. Choosing Your Donor

    Here at Ebony concept, we have a database of prospective black egg donors. Once you have decided to move forward, we will arrange an appointment with our egg donation specialists who will talk you through the process and arrange for any tests you may need. We will also undertake a personalised matching service that ensures you get the egg donor that is perfect for you.

    3. Preparing For Treatment

    Once a donor has been selected and confirmed, an appointment will be arranged with one of our doctors to map out your personal treatment plan. This is followed by a consultation with one of our senior nurses with extensive surrogacy experience. During this meeting all your pre-screening tests will be organised along with all the consents needed to allow your surrogate to begin her treatment.

    If the person you select as surrogate is married, she along with her husband will remain as legal parents of the child until you apply for a parental order. If the person you choose is single and any sperm used is your partners, you and the surrogate will be legal parents until the legal parentage is transferred through a parental order.

    4. Starting Treatment

    Your surrogate will be required to undergo hormone treatment for a period of about 17 days prior to transfer. This is to properly prepare the womb for embryo implantation. During this period, she will be closely monitored by our fertility specialists. This monitoring will take the form of regular ultrasound scans.

    The donor eggs will be fertilised in our laboratory by using sperm from your partner or selected donor. It will usually take five to six days of fertilisation before eggs reach the blastocyst stage.

    5. Embryo Transfer

    You will be given regular updates throughout the fertilisation process by our specialist embryologist. When the time comes, you will be allocated a slot for your embryo transfer. The embryo transfer is a relatively simple and painless procedure that can be carried out without the need for anaesthetic.

    It is usual for women to only have one egg transferred to prevent multiple pregnancies. All remaining embryos can be frozen and stored for a period of up to ten years should you require further treatment.

    6. Confirming pregnancy

    Once the embryo transfer has been completed, we will give you a date for your pregnancy test. We will also give you details of any medication required. If required there is the availability of a scan at 3-4 weeks designed to check for foetal heartbeat.

    “A wonderful and very helpful person.as i am from foreign country he was very understable and patient for me.before and after operation he answered all my questions and tried to support me!i highly recommend him as he saved my life, because now i will be able to have children.he made my dreams came true!!!

    “An absolute profesional dedicated to his career and a true gentleman, for me the attention to detail was 1st class. For any woman thinking of going to see this Dr, don’t think about it, do it, you are in great hands. Thank you Dr Edi-Osagie for making my life full again

    Dr Edi-Osagie diagnosed my stage 3 endometriosis when I was trying to get pregnant. I had a laparoscopy and treatment and I finally conceived my miracle. The treatment extended to my husband as we both had problems. It was very emotional to go back to see him with my little girl! I had a subsequent surgery to repair the damage I had after delivery and his care and expertise was second to none. He has been so flexible and made sure everything was OK and I could contact him directly after surgery. He is now my point of reference and I wouldn’t trust anyone else.
