A Detailed Guide To Third Party Reproduction Options

Sep 07, 2017

Cocoon Fertility offers third party reproduction options through its working partnerships with ICMR recognised ART Banks.


In some cases it may not be possible for a lady to carry a pregnancy. This can be overcome by the surrogacy treatment where another woman will carry the pregnancy for 9 months and deliver the child. Surrogacy is offered for :

• Women without a uterus

• Women with a diseased uterus e.g : Endometrial damage

• Women with chronic diseases e.g. : heart disease, epilepsy, diabetes, if carrying a pregnancy can endanger mother's health / life.

• Recurrent implantation failure in IVF.

We choose surrogates who are young ( 21 to 35 yrs), who have 1-2 live children of their own, who are disease and infection free and from a good family background. We have a process of robust counselling and legal paperwork to make the process as stress free as possible.

Donor Egg and Donor Sperm

In rare cases it may not be possible to perform treatments with your own eggs or sperm e.g. advanced age of the woman, ovarian failure, and azoospermia. When this happens sperm or eggs from a donor can still help you have a baby.

Patients are carefully assessed before treatment and counselling is provided regarding the use of donors and the legislation governing donor treatments in India.

Donors that we select are screened for sexually transmittable infections (including HIV and Hepatitis B) and genetically inherited diseases. The donor is matched for height, weight, build, skin colour, eyes colour, hair, blood group, with either the husband or the wife, i.e. couple taking treatment. We also will have information about the age, education, etc of the donor.

We hold detailed records of our donor cycles. If a genetically related sibling is desired by the family, we can arrange for sperm from the same donor to be saved with us at the clinic for future use. For donor eggs, extra embryos are created at the same time and can be stored for later use.

It is important to note that the Indian legislation does not allow any clinic in India to use a known donor. Hence, the treatment will be with an unknown donor arranged by the clinic.
