What is the process of surrogacy for celebrities?
Surrogacy is a complicated procedure. A medical and legal procedure for gestational surrogacy requires special consideration. In the case of celebrities, everything becomes more secret. In the following, we focus on the careful planning and coordination that VIP couples expect!
Privacy for VIP couples in the surrogacy procedure
The surrogacy process involves privacy in a significant way. At an early stage, when intending parents choose a surrogate, the pair decides how much personal information to divulge. Celebrities frequently decide to list their first name alone on contracts to prevent any leaking of their private data and retain their personal boundaries.
Regarding anonymous contracts, all communication is done through the agency with the surrogate. The intended parents and the surrogate each have their own attorneys, who would have all relevant contact information in the event of an emergency.
Leaking item contracts of celebrities cause a lot of legal trouble for the companies and the surrogate so setting up detailed and precise contracts is one of the signs of reliable and professional institutions.
When agencies similar TebMedTourism chat with VIPs (of course all of our clients are VIPs), most of them are scared that their private information will leak, so they keep their information limited in the early stages. But in our agency, rest at ease without any leaking information forever.
