The abeyance procedures are safe and have been carefully tested. Below is a rundown of the basic elements of the process…

Initial meeting: Once parents have decided to pursue abeyance, Family Abeyance Inc will set up a meeting to discuss cost and procedures, as well as safety and legal matters.  This session provides a forum to address any number of a family’s questions and concerns. Legal counsel is welcome, though not required, and everything that takes place in these sessions is kept strictly confidential. At this time, parents will be introduced to their Family Abeyance caregiver, who will be their primary contact throughout this process. Doctors and security personnel can also be present for questions if the family so chooses.

Pre-natal care: Once the parents sign the abeyance contract, mothers are welcome (and encouraged) to come to our care centers for top quality pre-natal treatments. Family Abeyance Inc will cover everything, from the prenatal vitamins to the final ultrasound. Our doctors are extremely experienced and come from lauded medical programs around the world.

Delivery: Doctors at our care centers can perform either natural or caesarian births. The choice is largely up to the mothers, though certain medical conditions or concerns may take precedence. Once the fetus is delivered, our physicians will give it a final check for the abeyance process.

Abeyance: After the final physical and tests, the fetus is gently sedated and placed in a chamber with the placenta. Gradually and painlessly, our doctors integrate cryonic fluid into the fetus’s system. Bodily fluids are mixed with a glycerol solution and also stored in the chamber. Finally, the chamber is flash frozen to -200ºC.

Safekeeping: After abeyance is initiated, the fetus can remain in a state of suspended animation indefinitely. The chambers are constantly monitored by our team of doctors and the family’s abeyance caregiver. The average time that a fetus stays in safekeeping is ten years, and families can arrange to pay for this safekeeping by the month, year, or terms of several years.

Reanimation: Once the parents decide that they are ready for their child, they contact their Family Abeyance caregiver, who then authorizes our physicians to begin reanimation. This process is slower than freezing, but is absolutely safe and carefully monitored.

Welcoming: Once the child is reanimated, the family’s abeyance caregiver will bring it to its parents at our Welcome Center. Families are invited to stay for at least a week to get to know the new baby. Doctors, nurses, and abeyance caregivers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to answer any questions a family might have while at the Welcome Center.
