Surrogacy is when a woman carries and gives birth to a baby for a couple (intended parents) who is unable to conceive naturally or has not been able to conceive through assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF. The surrogate mother enters a legal contract where she agrees to give the baby to the intended parents after the birth.
Based on whether the egg used for pregnancy is from the surrogate or the intended mother, surrogacy may be classified as follows:
In traditional surrogacy, the father’s sperm is transferred into the surrogate’s womb through artificial insemination. In this case, since the surrogate’s egg is fertilized for pregnancy, she is called the biological mother of the baby.
Many couples prefer to opt for gestational or host surrogacy where the eggs from the mother and sperm from the father are fertilized in vitro (IVF). The fertilized embryo is then placed in surrogate’s uterus. This makes the commissioning mother the biological mother of the baby.
