Spanish couple’s baby born through international surrogacy
For a couple who has dreamed of having a child together, there is no greater joy than hearing their baby’s first cries and holding their child for the very first time. For Pere & Xavi, a gay couple living in Spain, the journey to finally meet their son through international surrogacy took them across oceans, and required them to entrust their most precious dreams to the care of others. The Fertility Center of Las Vegas could not be prouder that this loving couple chose us to help make their dream of a family come true through IVF in the United States.
Because surrogacy is not permitted in their home country, Pere and Xavi knew they would need to find an egg donor and surrogate abroad. They had friends who were going through the process in countries such as Thailand and Mexico, but they wanted to be sure that their child would be conceived and carried in the most ethical way, with help from a supportive team of caring professionals who would guide them through every step.
Choosing FCLV for international surrogacy
After a single Skype consultation with Bruce Shapiro, M.D., Pere and Xavi knew that they had found the right person to help them have a baby through IVF in the United States. In addition to Dr. Shapiro’s extensive experience and education about the international surrogacy process – and assurances that the Pere and Xavi would be able to bring a baby back home to Spain – the couple had the full resources and support of FCLV’s enthusiastic team on their side.
