What is Surrogacy ?
The word surrogate means substitute. It is the practice by which a woman becomes pregnant and gives birth to a baby in order to give it to someone who is not able to conceive or who cannot bear children on their own. There are two main types of surrogacy, gestational and traditional surrogacy.
What is Traditional Surrogacy ?
In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is impregnated naturally or artificially, but the resulting child is genetically related to the surrogate mother. A traditional surrogate is the baby’s biological mother since the child was conceived from the union of her egg and the father’s sperm.
What is Gestational surrogacy ?
In gestational surrogacy, the pregnancy results from the transfer of an embryo created by in-vitro fertilization (IVF), in a manner so the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate. Gestational surrogate mothers are also referred to as gestational carriers.
