A family holding a babyWhat is surrogacy?

The process of surrogacy is an arrangement between a couple or a single person and the surrogate who agrees on carrying the pregnancy for the intended parents or parent. Very often because of some medical complications a woman cannot carry the child in her own body and she uses a surrogate. Also male homosexual couples sometimes use the services of a surrogate to have a child.

There are two types of surrogacy:

Gestational surrogacy:

Here the pregnancy is a result of transferring the embryo which was earlier created in an IVF process. In a result the surrogate is not genetically related to the child.

Traditional surrogacy:

Here the pregnancy of the surrogate is natural or artificial and the child is genetically related to the surrogate.
