Success rate of IVF treatment using surrogate mother reaches 80% in IVF Georgia
Surrogacy is an additional service of the assisted reproductive technique involving a third person, thanks to which, a lot of women have a chance of maternity.

Absence of the uterus due to surgical intervention (hysterectomy/removal of the uterus);
Congenial vaginal agenesis (Rokitansky syndrome) / or its development pathology;
Multiple myomas in the uterus threatening the pregnancy;
