Surrogacy

Surrogacy

When a woman is unable to carry a child, whether due to to medical, genetic or social reasons, the couple or single woman may choose to find a surrogate mother who can carry the baby.

Medical circumstances that may prevent a woman from carrying a child:

  • Recurrent abortion or premature labor
  • Dangers to the life of the Intended Mother - for example, severe heart, kidney or respiratory disease, unstable diabetes, or severe high blood pressure.

Genetic diseases in which there is a significant risk of an abnormal gene being passed on to the fetus can be avoided either by surrogacy or by IVF using a donor egg .

When the genetic disease needs to be carried by both partners in order to be of significant risk, AID - artificial insemination using donor sperm can also be an option.

The baby born by surrogacy may be the biological child of:

Both parents - the egg is retrieved from the IM - intended mother and joined with sperm from the IF - intended father. This is known as Gestational Surrogacy (the surrogate mother has no genetic connection to the child).

Mother & sperm donor - the egg is retrieved from the IM - intended mother and joined with donor sperm. This is another type of Gestational Surrogacy.

Surrogate mother & IF (intended father) - the surrogate mother goes through a process of AI (artificial insemination) using the IF's sperm. This is known as Traditional Surrogacy (the surrogate mother is biologically the mother of the baby).

Neither parent - often also referred to as embryo adoption. The surrogate mother may or may not be a biological parent in this case.

The biological background of the child, and not its surrogate mother, determine the baby's genetics -- the way the baby will look, its blood type, height, and all other physical traits.

Additional Issues

Payment is frequently given to the surrogate mother. Fees are intended to cover all medical costs incurred throughout the pregnancy and for payment to the surrogate mother. This is known as surrogacy compensation.

In all surrogacy situations, legal issues are an important issue to consider. Make sure any arrangement is as safe as possible for both sides.

There are many agencies worldwide that specialize in surrogacy arrangements. Investigate the agency you choose and make sure to get recommendations from other couples who have used it.
