Ethical Fertility Treatment
The ethical guidelines of fertility treatment often pertain to both who should receive the treatment, and also the treatments themselves.
Any woman who has been unable to conceive for a period of more than a year of unprotected intercourse, could be a possible candidate for fertility treatments. However at Zeeva, we further evaluate the situation by reviewing the nature of the relationship or past children history before making a final decision about the treatment. Ultimately we prioritize the welfare of the child that could be born because of treatment and of those who might also be affected by the birth.
Another goal of our ethical treatment is to avoid unsafe multiple births. Multiple births can be risky and complicated. Dangers exist both to the mother as well as the babies. Those risks include extremely premature babies, kidney or lung damage, mental retardation, and poor growth. Codes of conduct are in place to deter these births, and decide how many embryos should be transferred. Zeeva has always followed these ethical principles and have been leaders in reducing the number of embryos transferred per IVF cycle to reduce the chance of higher-order multiple pregnancies. We feel that the best chance for a successful pregnancy occurs when the outcome results in a single or twin babies.
Zeeva Fertility is at the forefront of ethical fertility treatment. Dr. Shweta Goswami is an internationally trained infertility & IVF specialist with great repute nationally, as well as abroad for her ethical, transparent as well as professional clinical approach. By the establishment and enforcement of such ethical guidelines we protect our patients from dangerous or unnecessary treatments and instil their lifelong trust in us.
