In Vitro Fertilization in Georgia
Surrogacy has been regulated in Georgia since 1997, and, since then, the country has become a desirable destination for IVF programs, surrogacy and egg donation for parents-to-be all over the world. The surrogacy law resulted in many IVF clinics opening in Georgia. This competition increased success rates of the IVF procedure and live birth deliveries all across the country, raising standards for customer satisfaction.
Since 2008, New Life’s parents have been referred to our clinics from 73 countries worldwide, including Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and Asia. IVF clinics in Georgia are dedicated to providing every parent-to-be with the highest quality of care, affordability and compassion. Our high success rates stem from our commitment to keeping our parents-to-be comfortable and safe every step of the way through their journey to parenthood.
When you choose to complete an IVF with Surrogacy program in Georgia, you have two options:
1. You can choose to stay in Georgia for the entire duration of your stimulation process. The parent-to-be will need to arrive in Georgia on day two of her menses and stay for the duration of the stimulation (12 to 14 days) until her eggs have been picked up.
2. New Life partners with IVF doctors in virtually every country that can help you with stimulation, so, for a shorter stay in Georgia (only four to five days), you can start treatment in your home location. Then, the mother-to-be only needs to arrive in Georgia on day eight or nine of her stimulation and stay in the country for five days until the eggs are picked up.
Note: Male partners are required to stay in Georgia only for two days to deposit sperm and sign the required paperwork. This can also be done distantly via sending frozen sperm samples with the help of IVF courier company.
What tests are required?

Can the tests be performed in Georgia?
If you are visiting Georgia for self cycle Surrogacy, tests should be sent in advance for proper planning and preparation. Test results should be current (no more than six months old).
What medications will I take, and how much do they cost?
Your medication and dosage are determined based on your hormonal test results, so the cost of these medications is dependent on your individual situation. You may be prescribed the following:
Folic Acid-to prevent major birth defects.
Hormonal Injections-to develop multiple follicles in order to obtain enough eggs for the IVF procedure. These hormones are self-injected or injected by our nurse.
Pessary- to deliver progesterone in preparation for the uterus to receive and maintain a fertilized egg.
For more information about medications and costs, please contact New Life’s IVF Coordinator.
How many embryos are transferred?
Georgia has no restrictions on the number of embryos that may be transferred. At New Life, we generally recommend the transfer of two embryos, but the decision is made based on your personal preference. We will transfer only one embryo if you wish to avoid having twins, or two embryos maximum.
When will I find out if I am pregnant?
You can perform a beta-hCG blood test to measure the level of hCG (a hormone produced during pregnancy) present in your blood 12 days following embryo transfer.
What is the success rate of IVF treatment?
The success of your IVF treatment depends on your personal situation. Age, genetics, sperm and egg quality, and the number of embryos transferred can all have an impact on the success of your procedure. At New Life, we do everything in our power to achieve the highest success rates possible and typically see an 80 percent success rate for surrogacy and egg donation; however, this rate varies for self-cycle surrogacy cases.
