What is surrogacy?
A surrogate mother agrees to carry a child for another woman or couple. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother’s eggs are used in the pregnancy. In this instance, she has a genetic link to the child.
How is gestational surrogacy difference from traditional surrogacy?
In gestational surrogacy, the intended mother’s eggs are implanted into the surrogate’s womb. They are fertilized with the father’s sperm. In some cases, the eggs are fertilized by a sperm donor. Gestational is the most common form of surrogacy.
In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate’s eggs are used in the pregnancy, and they are artificially inseminated with the father’s or a donor’s sperm.
Can I choose the parents?
Yes. When an intended parent or couple expresses an interest in working with you, you’ll have the opportunity to know about them. If both of you agree, then we set up a meeting to start the process.
How often will I keep in touch with the intended parents?
This depends on you and the intended parents. The amount of contact between you and them is a personal choice for everyone involved and will vary.
What are the responsibilities of a surrogate mother?
Surrogacy is a big commitment. For this reason, we ask that anyone considering it be prepared for devoting a considerable amount of time and effort into the process. We ask that you keep your appointments and follow the directions of our staff and doctors.
