US national data showed that 11% of women and 9% of men have fertility problems. So many couples face the problem of increasing the family. Gestational surrogacy is the answer to the desire to have a genetically related child. It uses the egg and sperm of the intended parents or donors, if necessary. An embryo created in a laboratory using in vitro fertilization (IVF) is implanted in the uterus of a gestational carrier. Therefore, the surrogate mother does not have a biological connection with the child, in contrast to the traditional method, where the egg of the surrogate mother is used. Traditional surrogacy is prohibited in some states due to legal and ethical difficulties. Here’s to a couple from the US who, after many miscarriages, found out they had rare chromosomal translocations. This meant that it was impossible for them to have a stable pregnancy and the only option to have a child was to use gestational surrogacy. Having gone through this path, the couple had a child and are now fully enjoying the happiness of parenthood.
