In traditional surrogacy, the egg of the surrogate mother is used. A medical procedure called intrauterine insemination is performed, which helps the intended father’s sperm to transfer to the surrogate mother’s uterus. In the case of gestational surrogacy, an ovum of the intended mother or a donor is used. And the technology of in vitro fertilization (IVF) is used, embryos are produced in the laboratory and transferred to the uterus of a surrogate mother. So the main difference is that with gestational surrogacy, the child has no genetic connection with the surrogate mother and can be native to both intended parents.
