What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is an arrangement between a woman and a couple or individual to carry and deliver a baby. Women or couples who choose surrogacy often do so because they are unable to conceive due to a missing or abnormal uterus, have experienced multiple pregnancy losses, or have had multiple in vitro fertilization attempts that have failed. The advantage of gestational surrogacy to the parents is that the embryo is created from the woman’s egg and the man’s sperm, so it is biologically theirs.
The surrogacy arrangement is sometimes made through an agency and other times contracted privately. When searching for a surrogate mother, a couple might use the Internet contact an agency, or network through friends and family. Surrogacy arrangements are sometimes made between strangers who never meet, or between persons who meet only occasionally through the process.

 

Types of Surrogacy

Type I  Gestational Surrogacy also known as full surrogacy is when the surrogate mother has no genetic link to the child she is carrying. The embryos are generated from the eggs and sperm of the ‘genetic’ parents and the surrogate just acts as the host for them. The woman producing the eggs goes through an IVF cycle while the surrogate prepares her uterus for conception. The eggs are then fertilized outside of the woman's body and the resulting embryos are implanted in the uterus of the surrogate.

Type II  Traditional surrogacy is the arrangement in which the surrogate would be using her own egg, and will therefore have a genetic link to the child. In this arrangement, the Surrogate agrees to be inseminated with the sperm of the intended father who is in most cases is the husband of the ‘commissioning couple’.
