Our exclusive services
GESTLIFE through its office in Barcelona, and its direct branches in the countries where it operates, is in charge of the whole process, from the moment you want to start it, until you return to your country of origin with your baby (whether this is Spain, or any other country).
GESTLIFE OFFERS YOU THE FOLLOWING SERVICES THAT OTHER COMPANIES CANNOT OFFER YOU:
1. WE GUARANTEE YOUR SUCCESS, OR YOU WILL GET YOUR MONEY BACK In a surrogacy process, many things can happen that may delay time, for reasons beyond your control. If we don't get you to be a parent within 30 months, or you will get your money back*.
2. WE ARE VISIBLE, AND WE ARE IDENTIFIED. We are a reputable law firm in Spain, with all our data publicly visible. Many of the agencies do not indicate on their websites which companies are behind them, and they do not even comply with the Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (“Ley de Servicios de la Información (LSSICE))” which obliges them to publish on their website their tax identification number, commercial register, address and telephone numbers. It seems that this information was secret and did not want to know who is behind. Beware of those who hide so that you do not know who they really are.
3. WE ARE LAWYERS We have not created an agency because we have seen a business. We have already existed before surrogacy, and we will continue to exist if one day they legalize it in our country. A law firm always complies with the law, and you have someone in Spain to whom to turn to if something goes wrong.
4. YOU WORK WITH A SPANISH COMPANY Besides, you pay us in Spain. Neither in Cyprus, nor in the Seychelles as some agencies do. GESTLIFE complies with current legislation, and avoids you future problems with the Public Treasury.
5. PHYSICAL COMPANION DURING THE TRIPSThey are our employees who belong to the company’s staff (not external collaborators such as translators, taxi drivers, etc.). They will pick you up at the airport and take you to the hotel or apartment where you are going to stay. During the days that you are in the country, you will be accompanied by someone in every step involved in order to achieve the process. This person speaks in English, and the language of the country, but he is not just a translator. This person is an assistance officer, capable of solving all the problems that may arise. We do not give you a telephone number to call so that only then you will be assisted by telephone, or if it is personally, so that you will not have to pay a supplement that you were never told about.
6. A BRITISH LAWYER WILL GO WITH YOU TO THE BRITISH CONSULATEAs soon as you have to go to register the child, an English lawyer will go with you to make all the arrangements so that you only have to take care of the child, and to sign.
7. INDIVIDUAL APARTMENTS AND HIGH LEVEL HOTELS Most of the agencies that include accommodation, host you in houses shared with other couples, with children. In some cases, there is only one toilet for all the couples. GESTLIFE host you in top level hotels (for the first short trip) and in individual apartments when you go to pick up the child.
8. PAEDIATRICIAN SERVICE AT HOME When the baby is born, and you are in your apartment waiting to return to your country, you will receive a visit from a paediatrician every day, to verify the good condition of the child. Our companions will take care of the simultaneous translation of what the doctor tells you.
9. FREEZING OF THE STEM CELLS OF YOUR CHILD'S UMBILICAL CORD It is a totally free service that we give to all our parents. Because it is as important to be parents as to ensure the good health of our child in the next 20 years. GESTLIFE is in charge of organizing the process with a prestigious German cell bank, where you have already paid 20 year instalments in advance.
10. A CARE MANAGER TO FOLLOW-UP YOUR FILE You will be assigned a care manager to follow up and manage your file. You will be able to talk to him whenever you want, and he will keep you regularly informed by e-mail and telephone, and in the event of any news. Besides, you will be able to see your file through the INFONOW application.
11. LOCAL MOBILE PHONEThe company will give you a local mobile phone during your trips to the destination city so that you can keep in touch with both the office in the destination country and your companion at no additional cost.
12. 24-HOUR/DAY 365 DAYS A YEAR ON-CALL SERVICE While you are travelling in the country of destination, in addition to the personalised companion, you will have GESTLIFE offices in the country and a 24-hour on-call telephone.
13. MORE THAN 80 EMPLOYEES DEDICATED ONLY TO SURROGACY A surrogacy process requires a multidisciplinary team in all the countries where it operates. GESTLIFE has more than 80 employees, dedicated only to make your dream come true.
14. PSYCHOLOGIST SERVICE ON STAFF We are the only company in the sector that has a psychologist on-staff to deal with the concerns of parents. The psychological assistance service is provided free of charge up to 4 years after the birth of the child, and includes both the parents and the child.
15. GUARANTEE OF RESTART IN THE EVENT OF DECEASE OF THE BABYUnfortunately, as of the 7th month, all the agencies consider that if the baby is born prematurely, and dies, the programme has been accomplished, and you are left with no child and no money. GESTLIFE is the only company that covers this terrible contingency, guaranteeing you the restart of the same type of programme you had contracted, in the event of the child's decease up to one year after the decease at no cost to you.
16. EXCLUSIVE INSURANCES GESTLIFE has exclusive insurances that cover contingencies that no other company covers, such us loss or deterioration of embryos during transport, free change of donor in case of “puncture in blank” (without eggs), etc.
17. TRAVEL ASSISTANCE INSURANCE During your trips you will be covered by a Travel Assistance Insurance with ALLIANZ SEGUROS.
18. OWN OFFICES IN THE COUNTRIES The rest of the Spanish agencies lack their own offices, with their own staff insured by the country's social security, in order to provide them with a good quality service. They go to external collaborators, but when problems or complications arise, they are not there, nor do they have personnel prepared to solve the contingency on site. GESTLIFE has its own offices in GREECE, RUSSIA, UKRAINE AND GEORGIA with 80 employees dedicated to helping you make your dream come true. When you have a problem, no matter how small it is, we are there for you. You will not have to call Spain to see what they can do for you.
19. PREPARATORY COURSES FOR FIRST-TIME PARENTS During the process, preparatory courses for baby care are given. The courses are conducted live, online, in multi-conference, with the doula, the psychologist and a midwife, and with other parents. It has an eminently practical sense and has been created especially for parents by surrogacy.
20. PAEDIATRIC SERVICE 24 HOURS A DAY/365 DAYS A YEARGESTLIFE offers you, totally free for one year, the online paediatrician service (telephone, email and whatsapp) 24 hours a day 365 days a year, in English. Thus, if you have any doubts during your stay in the destination country, you will be able to talk to the paediatrician and clarify your doubts.
21. BASKET WITH PRODUCTS FOR YOUR CHILD GESTLIFE gives you a basket with all the products you need to take care of your child.
22. PUSHCHAIR FOR THE BABY GESTLIFE will lend you a pushchair for your baby during your stay in the countries where we have an office (GREECE, UKRAINE, RUSSIA).
23. GESTLIFE IS ENDORSED BY THE PARENTS ASSOCIATION FOR SURROGACY An independent association, which brings together more than 300 parents who have become parents thanks to surrogacy, and which oversees the agencies to ensure good practices, endorsing only those that meet the parameters required (www.padresporgestacion.org).
24. WE COMPLY WITH LAWS, SUCH AS THE DATA PROTECTION LAW, OR THE LAW ON INFORMATION SERVICES GESTLIFE has registered its files in the DATA PROTECTION AGENCY, as established by the ORGANIC LAW 15/1999 of 13 December on the Protection of Personal Data and Information Society Services and Law 34/2002 of 11 July on Electronic Commerce (“Ley de Servicios de la Información (LSSICE))”, something that not all agencies can say. Have you verified that other agencies you are speaking to also comply with the Laws? If not, do you expect them to comply with you if they do not comply with something so basic?
25. WE WORK WITH ALL COUNTRIESWe do not have the need to "sell" you a destination as if it were the 8th wonder of the world, because we have no other to offer you. At GESTLIFE we work in all countries where surrogacy is legal. Our fees are the same for all countries, so you have the guarantee that we will guide you to the one that best suits you and not to the company. Other companies, with only one destination, must "sing" the glories of that destination, and try to discredit the other destinations, to obtain their own benefit. In GESTLIFE we have only one interest: to help you choose the destination that best suits you according to your personal conditions.
26. AN INFRASTRUCTURE THAT NO AGENCY HAS GESTLIFE employs more than 80 people dedicated exclusively to surrogacy. It occupies offices for a total area of 1,200 meters and has own offices in 4 countries. This is something that no agency can match, and that guarantees the reliability and solvency that you need. A surrogacy process cannot be contracted to a shady company that exists today but it can disappear tomorrow.
27. IF YOU CANNOT COME AND SEE US, WE WILL GO WHERE YOU ARE.In the event that it is impossible for you to move, our personal advisors will move to your home. This visit has a cost of 950 euros, but they are deducted from the price of the programme if you finally hire our services.
28. MULTILINGUAL STAFF (+ ENGLISH) IN ALL OFFICES 11 languages are spoken in our company. All those in charge of assist you are multilingual (French, Italian, German, English), also in the branches.
29. YOU DO NOT TAKE CARE OF ANYTHINGYou only provide the genetic material. The rest is handled by GESTLIFE and its branches.
30. CODE OF ETHICS - GESTLIFEIt has a code of ethics of mandatory compliance by all the personnel. We practice surrogacy by avoiding the exploitation of surrogate mothers; our teams control on site the conditions in which they live, the homes where they live, their food and habits, something that can only be done if we have our own offices where our inspectors carry out constant monitoring.
31. COURSES AFTER THE BIRTH OF THE BABY GESTLIFE offers free courses for first-time parents, once they have returned to the United Kingdom. These courses are given online and live by a prestigious DOULA and help parents in the first months of this exciting adventure.
32. FINANCING GESTLIFE allows you to pay for your programmes in 5 or 8 instalments, but also it offers you bank financing lines so that you can pay for the programme in comfortable monthly instalments.
33. ADOPTION OF THE CHILD BY THE INTENDED MOTHER, IF NECESSARY For those countries where it is necessary for the intended mother to adopt the child, once in the United Kingdom, GESTLIFE advises and writes the letter for free to the parents to carry out the adoption.
And what is more important…
