Gestational surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy in the world is the most common type of surrogacy and has helped thousands of couples and individuals grow their families. But what is gestational surrogacy and how does it work?
If you are looking into surrogacy, it is important to know that there are two possible routes you can take – gestational and traditional surrogacy.
Traditional surrogacy: Traditional surrogacy involves the surrogate using her own egg. This means that, if you choose to go down the route of traditional surrogacy, the surrogate will be the biological mother of the child. Traditional surrogacy often comes with a lot of legal and emotional challenges. So, if this is the route you want to take, it is important you are prepared for all possible outcomes.
Gestational surrogacy: Gestational surrogacy uses the intended parent(s) eggs and sperm to create an embryo that is then transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. This process involves IVF treatment and means that the surrogate is in no way related to the child.
Gestational surrogacy is where a woman carries a pregnancy and gives birth to a baby for another woman or couple. The difference between gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy is that gestational surrogates have no biological relation to the child.
Instead, the embryo is created by means of in vitro fertilisation, using the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors, and the resulting embryo is then transferred into the surrogate.
Gestational surrogacy is also widely referred to as “full surrogacy.” Gestational surrogacy is less legally complicated than traditional or other forms of surrogacy because the surrogate is not biologically related to the child, negating the need for second-parent adoption.
If you’re unsure whether gestational surrogacy is for you, the following people commonly consider gestational surrogacy to start or grow their families:
Couples or individuals struggling with infertility
Single parents unable to conceive
Same-sex couples
People who don’t want a genetic link between the surrogate and their child
Anyone who is unable to carry a pregnancy to full term
Women who don’t have a uterus or their uterus is damaged
A medical condition that makes pregnancy unsafe for the mother.
