Testimonials

Dear New Life International,

On behalf of myself and my entire family, we would like to send you our heartfelt thanks for helping us bring a new little life into this world and into our home! Our baby boy is wonderful and perfect, and we are so grateful for him. Our experience with your agency, and specifically New Life Georgia, was extremely positive. Your office staff was always very polite, helpful, quick and efficient in getting all of the paperwork done and in promptly responding to e-mails. We were amazed with your preparedness, and very pleased that all of the legalities and documentation on your end were entirely completed within 2 or 3 days after our child’s birth! There were no “loose-ends.” Your IVF clinic in Tbilisi impressed us with their competency and qualifications, and the hospital where our surrogate delivered was very clean and modern. All of our requests for special services (specifically umbilical cord, and cord blood stem cell harvesting) were pleasantly accommodated. Our surrogate was a kind, thoughtful, responsible woman, who took her role of caring for our growing baby very seriously. We could have asked for no one better. We would also like to thank all of the wonderful Georgian people that we met during our stay in your country, for their non-technical help and friendliness! We must thank the Georgian government, for passing legislation that allows and supports assisted reproductive technology to be used to help people who could not have otherwise had a family of their own. Lastly, we must also send our greatest thanks to New Life’s Founder, Dr. Mariam Kukunashvili, for her help and trust, and for understanding that all people should have the opportunity to be blessed with one of life’s greatest gifts… children. Please feel free to have any prospective clients/parents contact me personally, if they have any questions or concerns, or need clarification on any issues that might best be answered by someone who has actually gone through the process themselves.

With kind regards and best wishes to you all,


“Dearest Sophie,

Thank you for the supportive email. Thank you for thinking of us. We are very nervous! Actually we had good news last week. The pregnancy is showing twins! Both of the babies are doing fine, and we are now in the 9th week. Both of the babies are showing heart sounds. Next ultrasonography we are hoping to show what sexes they are… We are so thrilled!

Thank you again, we are so grateful!

Best regards from a warm Sweden!”


“Hello ladies,

Thought we would share some new pics of Eden. He is doing well so far. Eating well and putting on weight. Such an adorable cherub, we are both over the moon.

Thank you again for your support to make this happen. We will never forget where he was born.”


“Dear Sophie

We just wanted to say a very big thank you for your support and help last week, particularly when you were feeling so poorly. We do appreciate your care, concern and guidance and feel so much more confident about everything thanks to your input. We got home feeling happy that everything is being done to bring about a positive outcome – and now well just hope and pray.We hope you had a restful weekend and that you soon feel a lot better & are able to start enjoying your pregnancy. Do take care and let others do some more of the work now! Don’t worry about responding to this message – you have plenty of others to attend to.Very best wishes and bises (what the French call their kisses).”


“Dear Sophie,

Thank you for getting in touch with us again. It’s so nice to hear from you.So far the pregnancy seems to be going well. We are entering the third trimester, and we look forward to receiving a sonogram of the baby. I believe that Sonia said it would be a doppler scan.It’s very exciting not knowing whether well have a boy or girl. Some of my friends who are pregnant already know, but I have to say that I prefer not knowing.Thank you for all of your help in the early stages. You made the process very clear and reassured all of my worries. It has been such an incredible adventure. I continue to speak on behalf of New Life.”


“Mariam WOW yes you are are so right ! We are so happy. You both have no idea how much better you made us feel about everything after meeting that night. We had been so scared of all the myths of “Eastern Europeans’ and were so elated to meet a very professional, intelligent woman and a lovely clever and ‘together”donor. Hope Tamar is over the anaesthetic, I was a little bit worried and wanted to go out to the surgery and make sure that they were looking after her properly( silly me an old nurse). We wont forget your warmth and compassion and understanding that gay men want to have families as much as other people.No matter if we make the full 9 months you will be our “mate”for your help (very very good compliment from Aussie). No sharks here now, too cold just jellyfish.”


“I would highly recommend Mariam to anyone and I am so pleased with the service and support that I am going to go through Mariam again for another child 🙂 Mariam is an angel disguised as a human. Mariam has been a rock of support and so so positive and calming. I can not say enough good about her no matter how hard I try. Mariam answered all my questions, gave me hope and was full of love and support. No one really does that and it was above and beyond what others would. Nothing has been too much trouble and they were a god send for me. I feel so blessed that I have had Mariam help and I will now become a mother. Mariam also saved a substantial amount of sperm, only some was used so I look forward to going back there. I picked a beautiful egg donor and the surrogate is a young, fit healthy surrogate who has had a child before.”


“First of all, we just wanted to say thank you for everything that you have done for us.We would have never been able to pull everything together without you. With all of the coordination and support, you made everything possible and for that we will be forever thankful. You were so kind and caring during this whole process, a unique quality not often found these days.Mariam, thank you for bringing Tiko to India and just being so supportive to both of us while there. We really enjoyed meeting you and spending time with you both. Please tell her that we are very grateful for her taking time out of her life to come to India for us and for being so supportive. You are both people that we will never forget.

Take care and hopefully well talk to you sometime soon.”


“Healthcare agency International helped us through the entire egg donor process. Although our surrogate and clinic were in India, HAI coordinated the synchronization of cycles and the medical care of our egg donor and arranged for her travel to India with great efficiency (despite bureaucratic obstacles). Once in India the transfer was completed successfully. Despite the distance that separated us in New York from both the egg donor and clinic in Georgia and the surrogate and clinic in India communication was straightforward. We cannot thank our egg donor and the very professional staff of HAI enough for helping us, we will always remember them with thanks.”


“I never thought I would have children, I was diagnosed with Cancer when i was 15 years old and I had my sperm frozen. I met my wife and we started to try for a child through IVF, we went to all the places possible in the world and had no luck. We had the last ampoule of sperm and my wife had heard how good Janine Oakman was and decided to speak to janine regarding IVF/Surrogacy. Since that day we have not looked back. I am now waiting for the birth of my FIRST child 🙂 in 5 months and this was our first surrogacy attempt. Mariam, Maka and janine are the wonderfullest ladies my wife and i know, they have given us a child, no one else could. They used 19 year old sperm and made our dreams come true. Remarkable clinics and remarkable ladies. How ever much good I say about them is not enough. I can never ever thank them for blessing me with the gift of a child. I still have frozen embryos and will be attempting surrogacy again through Janine and Mariams
