Different conditions of surrogate motherhood

Today, gestational and traditional surrogacy are distinguished. The most common agreement is a gestational agreement, which involves the biological contribution of both intended parents. The ovum of the intended mother is fertilized with the sperm of the intended father in laboratory conditions using in vitro fertilization (IVF). The resulting embryo is transferred to the uterus of the gestational carrier. Thanks to this method, the child has no genetic connection with the surrogate mother. In traditional surrogacy, the egg of the surrogate mother is used and she will be the child’s biological mother. This agreement is used everywhere, as it has a complex legal arrangement and many ethical risks. Genetics is a strong factor in a person’s sense of identity. So you need to understand that there will be a period when the child will show interest in his biological origin and you need to be ready to answer these natural questions. Scientific studies say that the best option is early familiarization of children with the story of surrogate motherhood. This is a much healthier approach than withholding information until the child is older.
