Go for a Baby to Kharkiv
We have just received visitors in the Clinic – journalists of 112 Ukraine TV Channel. They asked questions about inbound medical tourism: what makes patients from abroad come to GC-IVF for infertility treatment, what is the patient’s journey, what prospects for development of this sphere we see.
The news features a couple from the US who are instantly preparing for IVF in the clinic. They say that they considered infertility treatment in the US and Mexico. However, they chose Ukraine for quality-price reason. The price in Ukraine is twice as low as in the US. Equipment here is as good as in their home country. Besides, they have been recommended GC-IVF by friends as one of the top IVF-clinics in the CIS.
This is the lab where the couple’s embryos have been obtained. In several weeks, the embryos will be transferred into the female patient’s uterus. In the lab, there is no loud talking. It is where a new life is born.
The Medical Director of GC-IVF Valentyn Parashchuk tells the journalists that over 10,000 babies have been born with the help of the clinic’s specialists. The first Ukrainian IVF baby Katya was among them. A couple of weeks ago, Katya who is 28 now gave birth to a baby-girl.
The staff of the clinic do not remember when they received the first overseas patients. Now, the Clinic receives over 100 couples from abroad annually. Most of them come from Europe and North America. At the moment, for example, a couple from London are expecting a baby in a surrogacy program. They had had several attempts in Great Britain before turning to Gryshchenko Clinic-IVF. This time, the couple’s fertility specialist obtained pregnancy quite fast.
To sum up, affordable prices, high quality of services provided in combination with loyal legislature attract patients from other countries to Ukraine for infertility treatment.
