For many patients abroad, traveling to the US for fertility treatments may appear to be more trouble than it’s worth. It can be challenging to secure travel documents, pay for a plane ticket, and secure lodging in the US. However, there are several advantages to undergoing fertility treatments in America that you may not have in your home country.

Why Choose to Come to the US for Fertility Treatments?

We offer legal gestational surrogacy (using a surrogate mother) and legal egg donation surrogacy (where the egg comes from a donor instead of the prospective mother). 

Dr. Saadat’s fertility treatments in the US offer several advantages compared to treatments offered by fertility specialists abroad.

Flexible Surrogacy Laws

One of the challenges in other countries is the legal status of children born through a surrogate. This can be complicated, especially in countries like China or Germany that ban the practice of surrogacy. In many countries, laws can be ambiguous or even hostile on the subject of legal parentage through gestational surrogacy. 

German law, for example, states in section 1591 of the civil code that the legal mother of a child is the woman who gives birth to it. This makes legal surrogacy impossible. 

Under California law, surrogacy contracts can be drawn up that explicitly define parents’ and surrogates’ roles, responsibilities, and rights to prevent these issues. 

Regulatory Frameworks

Egg donation, surrogacy, and sex selection are covered by several laws in the United States to protect donors, parents, surrogates, and babies. The American legal system aims to protect all participants. 

In other countries, the laws around fertility procedures are often not as well-defined, especially legal protections. For example, Spain stopped registering children born through gestational surrogacy as citizens in 2019

This makes it safer to undergo fertility treatment in the US compared to most other countries. However, prospective parents should be aware of their home country’s laws regarding returning with a surrogate child.

If you want a higher chance of achieving pregnancy, selecting Dr. Saadat as your fertility specialist is one of the best choices you can make.
