What is Surrogacy?
A surrogate, sometimes called a gestational surrogate, a surrogate mother, or a gestational carrier, is a woman who carries and delivers a baby for another individual or couple. The child is conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and is not genetically related to the surrogate mother. Intended parents may choose to use a gestational surrogate in cases where an individual or couple is, for whatever reason, unable to carry a pregnancy.
Becoming a surrogate is an incredibly generous act, which makes it possible for hopeful parents fulfill to their dreams of starting or growing their families. All expenses related to the pregnancy are covered by the intended parents, and surrogates are compensated for their significant investment.
