About Gestational Surrogacy

If you are considering surrogacy as a way to help intended parents achieve their dreams of having children, it’s likely that you already know a lot about how the surrogacy process in Ukraine works.
Although gestational surrogacy has become increasingly common in recent years, there are still some facts about gestational surrogacy that not everyone might know. These include, but are not limited to, the following facts.
Gestational carriers are not biologically related to the child
While gestational carriers (AKA surrogates) are solely serving as a surrogate for the intended parents, many people may believe that she is the biological mother of the child who is born, because she is the one who carries him or her. While this is often true for cases of traditional surrogacy, in gestational surrogacy, the gestational carrier is actually not the biological mother. The woman whose eggs were used in the fertilization process is actually the real biological mother! Therefore, many intended parents may find gestational surrogacy even more appealing, because they can have the option of maintaining a genetic link to their child.
Monetary compensation is provided to gestational carriers
Gestational carriers are extremely selfless women who want other families to feel the same joy that they have experienced from children. However, these women are making a large sacrifice to help other intended parents out. In cases of gestational surrogacy, monetary compensation is provided to help gestational carriers out throughout the pregnancy.
Some requirements for women who are interested in becoming a gestational carrier include: being between 21 and 41 years old, having already had one complication free pregnancy and delivery, as well as currently parenting at least one child.
For women interested in becoming gestational carriers, it’s extremely important to understand your own state’s requirements when determining whether or not it’s a good fit for you.
Gestational surrogacy intended parents can use a sperm and/or egg donor
Because gestational surrogacy uses a fertilization process called IVF, where a sperm and egg are introduced in a laboratory setting, it’s possible for intended parents who are interested in gestational surrogacy to use a sperm and/or egg donor. This is extremely promising for any intended parents who are in same sex relationships or may be dealing with infertility. After IVF is completed, a fertilized embryo is implanted into the gestational carrier who will carry the child to term.
There is no worry about a gestational carrier wanting to keep the baby
While some people may be fearful that the gestational carrier might “change her mind” and decide she wants to keep the child, this is impossible with gestational surrogacy. Because surrogacy contracts and agreements are negotiated prior to the pregnancy, there is no concern about the gestational carrier wanting to keep the child. When the baby is born, it will be the intended parents’ child.
