Surrogacy Services or Gestational Surrogacy

Surrogacy is a promising pathway for couples who cannot carry a baby to term. Many couples choose surrogacy services or gestational surrogacy because of a medical problem or a pre-disposition. It is reserved for women with absent uterus, defective uterus, poor endometrium lining, or women with multiple IVF failures. Right at the beginning the surrogate mother enters into a contractual agreement with the commission couple.

What are Surrogacy Services or Gestational Surrogacy?

Surrogacy Services or Gestational Surrogacy is a method where the fertilized egg and sperm obtained from the couple is placed inside the womb of another lady who will carry the pregnancy to term.

There are two types of surrogacies.

In the traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother provides the use of her own egg as well as her own uterus to foster a pregnancy for another couple. The sperm comes from the husband of the intended couple who plan to parent the child. This type of surrogacy is not practiced any more.

In IVF surrogacy, also called gestational surrogacy, a couple’s sperm and egg are fertilized and the embryo is transferred to the womb of the surrogate mother. The embryo is completed unrelated to the surrogate mother genetically because it is produced by the gametes of the commission couple.

Is surrogacy right for you?

There are several reasons why you may be advised to choose surrogacy. A doctor will advise surrogacy if you have had repeated IVF failures, have a medical or surgical condition that prevents you from carrying a pregnancy to full term, or a pregnancy might pose a risk to your health or life.

To have a baby through surrogacy is a very personal decision. You may want to make this important decision with the help of your family as well as a counselor who can help you fully understand all the issues and implications of this decision.

IVF and the surrogacy process

When the legal contracts have been signed, the IVF cycle can begin. After testing, fertility medications will be administered to you to make eggs which will be retrieved and medications will be given to the surrogate to prepare the lining of the uterus. The egg is then fertilized with the sperm of the intended father. In a Gestational Surrogacy both or at least one gamete (either egg or sperm) has to be from the commissioning couple. When the zygote reaches the blastocyst stage it can be transferred into the surrogate’s womb. If the transfer is successful, the surrogate will carry the baby to full term as a contractual service. Once the surrogate mother delivers the baby, the intended parents can take the baby home as part of their family.

We specialize in all types of fertility treatments for infertile couples and offer options that can make their dreams come true.

The surrogate usually comes from an agency or ART Bank service provider. It is permitted for the intended parents to bring their own surrogate if they so desire. The Indian government guidelines on IVF surrogacy make it a legal process and the names of the intending parents go into the birth certificate. All legalities must be completed correctly and a thorough agreement stating everything must be prepared.
