About surrogacy

The word “Surrogate” literally means a person who acts as a substitute in another person’s absence.
In medical science, Surrogacy is an arrangement where a woman carries another woman/ person/ couple’s baby to term. The woman who carries and delivers the baby is known as the Surrogate Mother or Gestational Carrier.
Surrogacy can be used for a number of cases where assisted reproductive technology is required, such as:
people struggling with infertility
same-sex couple
single parents
women past the reproductive age
hopeful parents want to have genetic bond to the baby, which is not offered in adoption
women experiencing recurrent miscarriages
women who have undergone hysterectomy or cancer treatment and is unable to safely carry a pregnancy to term
In gestational surrogacy, the child is not biologically related to the Surrogate Mother as her eggs are not used in the process. Instead, the embryo is created via in vitro fertilization (IVF), using the eggs and sperm of the Intended Parents or donors, and is then transferred to the Surrogate’s womb where the baby gestates.
In gestational surrogacy, the Gestational Carrier may either carry an embryo created using donated eggs and/or sperm or Intended Parents’ own egg and sperm. It depends on the family preferences and the fertility issues they are facing.
For a couple with no experience and knowledge in this procedure, the very thought of considering surrogacy can be quite daunting. Therefore, experts advise that they visit a surrogacy agency.
Gestational surrogacy is sometimes also called “host surrogacy” or “full surrogacy.” In most cases, at least one Intended Parent is genetically related to the child. As the Surrogate Mother is not genetically related to the baby, gestational surrogacy is less legally complicated.
