 Gestational and Traditional Surrogacy

Gestational Surrogacy

is when a women also referred to as a surrogate mother carries a baby for an intended couple or individual.  The gestational surrogate has no genetic relationship to the child that she is carrying. The intended mother undergoes traditional IVF, creating embryos with sperm from the intended father or a donor for surrogate transfer. In some case an egg donor might be needed. A women who agrees to serve as a gestational surrogate must sign a gestational surrogacy contract prior to engaging in the surrogacy. The gestational surrogate must agree to medical evaluation and treatment during her participation in the program. If one commissioning couple member is the genetic parent, they’re presumed natural parents of the surrogate’s child. Gestational and Traditional Surrogacy .

Traditional Surrogacy

is when the surrogate mother uses her own eggs to create the child that she is carrying for the intended parents or individual. Either the sperm of the intended father is used or donor sperm. Even though the surrogate mother has a genetic connection to the child all intentions are for her to grant parental rights of the child she is carrying to the intended parents or individual that she has created a legal agreement with prior to the start of the cycle. The child is handed over to the other party right after the birth.
