Hi, everybody. I was searching the internet to find some information, and found this forum where one woman has already discussed this clinic. I decided to write here cause I also need some help. Firstly, some words about myself. I’m 37. I’m childless and I can’t give birth to a child cause I have a heart disorder. Actually, my cardiologist has prohibited to do this. He told me that pregnancy may kill me, and better not to take risks. My hubby and I decided to find a woman who would assist in becoming parents. So we’re looking for a surrogate. We decided to ask a clinic to help us in this. There were quite a lot of feedbacks about this clinic on various forums, so we also went there. Here is one more feedback about Biotexcom. The clinic turned to be a small private house with various doctor’s offices. The halls are so overcrowded that some clients even had to sit on the stairs. The staff was too busy. I guess if they could, they would run. I didn’t like the clinic’s administrator. Her eyes, voice and facial expression proved that she was nervous and really tired of communicating with the patients. The phone rang every ten minutes, and the administrator didn’t have time to answer. There were large queues everywhere. We had to wait nearly an hour before the doctor was ready to meet us. While waiting in the queue, we got acquainted with one French couple. They were also getting their egg donation program there. They told us loads of things about the clinic, and we were really shocked by the fact how careless the clinic managers were. Firstly, the clients always have to wait in the queue. Sometimes they even have to come the following day to get a doctor’s consultation. Our new male acquaintance told us that he had to wait nearly two hours before they were able to pick up his sperm, and it made him so tired and nervous… We’ve decided not to sign up a contract with any clinic yet. Now we are pondering what to do further: to contact one of Ukrainian clinics or look for something else? What do you think about it??? Maybe, there is someone else who has already been in Ukraine and had his egg donation program there???
P.S. Please share your experience with me… I really need your help… I’m looking forward to your answers.

O gosh… Sounds not very good, dear!!! I don’t think reputable clinic should treat their clients like this. If they can’t organize their work properly, maybe, it’s better to quit them. What do you think, dear? Or at least you may google. Some information on them. I would also visit various fertility forums and see what other ladies write there.

We decided to deal with this clinic cause our close friends used to cycle there several years ago. They got a positive result and praised the fertility specialists who work there greatly. However, they didn’t tell us about those large queues. We also googled some information about this clinic on the net and found quite a lot of favorable feedbacks about them. We visited their official website and liked the services they offer. Their prices are quite normal. These are the main reason why we decided to meet with them.

The clinic seems to be rather reputable at the first sight. Your close friends’ baby is a nice proof that their services are rather effective. Nevertheless, you should also check the way they’re going to choose a surrogate. It must be a healthy and young enough woman ready to give a birth to a baby who won’t be hers. She must also get necessary things during pregnancy to feel well. I would also check this if I were in your shoes. Good luck, hun! Xxx

We have to sign up a contract with the clinic. According to this contract, the clinic will find a woman who will become a surrogate for our baby. This woman must be healthy for fertilization, pregnancy and delivery. The clinic’s representatives will also check the psychological health of the woman. She must be ready to carry and give birth to the child of the intended parents. The clinic is going to supply her will all necessary things to feel her comfortable during her pregnancy. She will get monthly a certain sum of money to cover her living expenses. In addition, the clinic’s representatives will phone her weekly or pay a personal visit to check her needs. A surrogate will also get a medical insurance. She will have to visit the clinic regularly to do an ultrasound checkup. This is the clinic will find and treat a surrogate. What do you think about it???

Hi! I think you should also check whether you’ll be able to leave the country without any problems. It’s really vital to do this as different countries have different laws. In some countries, surrogacy is forbidden, so you break the law while doing it. Make sure that you’ll be able to leave the country and enter your country with a baby without any problems. Maybe, it’s reasonable to contact the lawyer. What do you think about it?

Hi, Cuttie2017. I quite agree with you, hun! We have already visited the lawyer, and here is what he told us. Surrogacy is allowed by the Ukrainian laws. It means you may freely find a woman who would agree to carry and give birth to your child. Secondly the intended parents are considered to be true parents of the baby who was carried and given birth by a surrogate. It means a surrogate won’t be able to claim her rights for the baby. Finally, the names of the intended parents will be included into the child’s Birth Certificate. We plan to use this paper to get the pass in the name of the baby, leave Ukraine and enter our own country.

Hi, ladies. Just decided to join your talk as I’m also interested in going to Ukraine. We want to visit one specialist there. However, my hubby says that the country is at war now, and it isn’t safe there. Is he right? We also want to visit Kiev? Is it a cheap or expensive place?

Hi, Megan2012! We were in Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine. All in all, it was ok. The city turned to be very peaceful and quite modern. I think you would easily find an apartment there. The prices are low. However, I would advise you to hire an interpreter as not all Ukrainians are perfect English-speakers. You may also check whether the clinic you’ve got interested in can provide you with an apartment. Biotexcom supplied us with a comfortable apartment not far from the city center. Every time we needed to visit the clinic, a driver came to our clinic and took us there. It was really handy. Our program manager was our interpreter and helped us to communicate with the doctors in the clinic.
P.S. They even supplied us with free meals. When we were leaving Kiev, our program manager organized a short tour around the city. It was fantastic! I wish you good luck in your journey, hun!

Ihope - It seems docs dont' speak English at Biotexcom. I came across many posts of ladies who travelled to Czech rep (Zlin, Repro) and Poland (Invicta, mailny) where they communicate with docs and staff without any translators.

It’s always cool when the doctor speaks English. You get an opportunity to communicate with him by asking him or her questions and getting direct answers. However, in Ukraine English isn’t much spread. It’s quite ok that they’ve provided you with the interpreter’s services. It’s also very handy. Will they also provide you with the services of a babysitter? As far as I know, some fertility clinics in Ukraine and Russia provide their clients with such services.

Yes, they will provide us with a babysitter. She will come daily to look after our child for four hours. I think it’s quite handy as we’ll be able to visit the embassy and prepare all necessary papers to leave the country and don’t need to take our child with us. The baby will also be checked by the attending pediatrician. He will come to our place. If we have any problems with the child, we may phone24/7 hotline and consult an English-speaking pediatrician. The doctor may also visit our place and check the baby in emergency cases. I think it’s really great that all these services are included in the surrogacy package.

Hi, there! Ihope, thanks for your feedback about Biotexcom. My DH and I are also looking for a surrogate mum for our future child. I can’t get pregnant because of a high blood pressure. Unfortunately, we don’t have a close friend or relative who would agree to carry and give birth to our child. We decided to find a reputable fertility clinic and ask them to look for a surrogate for us. We haven’t made a decision which clinic to deal with yet, so your feedback turned to be very useful for us. I want to ask you one more question about Biotexcom: does the clinic check whether a surrogate leads a healthy lifestyle or not?

I think they do this. According to the contract we are to sign up, the clinic has to find a surrogate for us. This should be a totally healthy woman. The clinic would test her in various ways to see whether she’s healthy enough to be fertilized, carry and give birth to a child. The woman has to pass a psychological test to see whether she’s ready to carry and give birth to a child who isn’t hers. When a surrogate gets pregnant, she has to visit the clinic monthly. She will be done an ultrasound check and alcohol, drug and smoke tests. The clinic’s representatives will also phone or pay a personal visit to the surrogate’s place of residence weekly to check her needs.
