If a woman carries and gives birth to a child for another person or another couple, this arrangement is called gestational surrogacy. At the same time, the surrogate mother has no genetic connection with the child. One or more embryos created with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF) are transferred to the womb of the surrogate mother. In IVF, the egg and sperm of the intended parents or donors, if necessary, are used, and they are combined in the laboratory. Gestational surrogate motherhood is extremely necessary in situations that do not allow you to carry and give birth to a child on your own.
