Long live Chachava! - Couple from Turkey
As we write this our precious baby is one month old, sleeping in her bed and each and every day we think to ourselves how we are blessed to have found Chachava Clinic to help us through our journey to this happy end.
After many failed attempts of IVF and a frustrating miscarriage (my wife had intrauterine adhesions) we were at the edge of giving up completely. I was 45 and my wife was 43. In the beginning, we were just like you, confused and desperate, the only fact that we knew was that surrogacy was legal in Georgia, which obviously made this country so noble and and ahead of its time before our eyes. Apparently, Georgia was our last chance.
Thanks to the Internet, we made a quick research, found a few contacts and flew to Tbilisi in a short time. Tbilisi was an elegant city, full of history and had a spirit. People were warm and friendly, transportation was cheap. We took a taxi and the driver took us to wherever we want the whole day for a very reasonable price. My wife and I went to our first two appointments in the morning, however, our first impression was not satisfactory with those centers.
Then in the afternoon we found ourselves in Chachava. Just like the city, the facility was very impressive with the historical architecture and the ambience was very inspiring. As a medical professional, while I was strolling the hospital I noticed the facility was clean, well-organized and the equipment they used were hi-tech.
We met Keti and Tatiana, who we will never forget and will always be obliged to. They informed us about their approach and pathway thoroughly. Our trust to the foundation doubled. We instantly knew we were in the right place. We learned about the expenses, the legal procedures, the technical issues, the risks, and everything. By that evening, we were ready to go already.
We failed in the first ET attempt with our surrogate. But our trust to the staff was full, and their self confidence was full too. In the second attempt the surrogate got pregnant. Once again we were so impressed by their professionalism.
The pregnancy went so smooth, the expenses and payments were just like they were planned, nothing extra happened in an unexpected way. We always keep in touch with Keti and Tatiana, they answered our questions instantly and kept us relaxed us all the time.
Our daughter came 3 weeks earlier than planned, however she was healthy and beautiful, thanks to God. The neonatal department staff were so professional as very caring and love-giving. Big thanks to them once again.
We stayed in the hospital in one of the hotel rooms of the facility, which was a blessing as well. We spent our days in a five-star hotel comfort. The whole staff was so supportive. We also made new friends from other parents whose stories were just like ours.
One warning here should be given: Each country has its regulations for the travel documents of the newborn babies. The paperwork may take from at least 2-3 weeks to 6 months to travel back to your country with your baby (babies). Your country may not even have a consulate in Tbilisi which renders the procedure harder and longer than you think.
Just two weeks after the delivery we were able to fly back to our country. Hope everything goes smooth with you my friend and our prayers are with you. I call this “the fellowship of Chachava”. Long live Chachava!
