Everything feels fluid, whether you are launching your surrogacy program, already in the ‘middle’ of your surrogacy journey, or exploring the new ways of empowering the bold new features that would transform your pack. Everything you need in just one bundle. The protocols that have you covered. The flexible configurations that provide a great surrogacy experience. The brilliant extras that seamlessly adjust to the ‘core’ surrogacy pack ‘magnetically’ — no need for cancellation, waiting–mode, or the program’s complete restart–mode. Explore all the stages your surrogacy program involves. 


(1) ‘We are just getting started.’ Nocontact, online, virtual initial consultation with VittoriaVita Rep. or Case Manager.

●Virtual consultation with VittoriaVita Fertility Pro on the patient’s or couple’s demand (via Skype or phone (or email)).

●Sending the previous diagnostic screening results, lab. tests’ results, blood tests’ results, ultrasound scan results (via mail) to VittoriaVita.

Something to say in conclusion?

Surrogacy with egg donation and the partner’s sperm program has several stages. The 1st stage is virtual, the 2nd stage requires the couple’s arrival and active participation, the 3rd stage is initiated remotely (without extra–arrival). Stage 4, 5, and 6 are also initiated remotely (without extra–arrival). The last stages (stage 7, 8, 9, and 10) require the couple’s arrival and active participation. Smile, you are in a remote surrogacy mode.
