Surrogacy- A wish To Parenthood
Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction technique where intended parents (biological parents) seek surrogate gestational who will carry and care for their baby until birth.
Let’s find out how does surrogacy works?
Surrogacy treatment helps childless couples who are unable to have children or have faced multiple IVF failures or missing uterus and other complications medical issues. It’s a process that requires clinical, medical and legal expertise, as well as a strong support system throughout the journey.
Through IVF technique, embryos are created in a lab at a fertility clinic. Sometimes the intended parents use their own genetic samples like sperm or eggs. Sometimes, an egg donor is required or a sperm donor is required. At the fertility clinic, 1-2 embryos are implanted into a gestational carrier or surrogate mother who carries the baby for the next 9 months.
This is an important medical concept for all the biological parents to know that gestational carriers have no genetic relationship to the children they deliver.
Why choose surrogacy to grow your family?

Surrogacy is an option for whom?
Heterosexual couples who have struggled with infertility

What are the Benefits of Surrogacy?
Surrogacy allows infertile couples, single parents and members of the LGBT community to become parents when they may not be able to have children otherwise.
In most of the cases, gestational surrogacy allows one or both parents to be biologically related to their baby.
Surrogacy gives hopeful parents the opportunity to raise a child from birth.
Intended parents are involved throughout the long journey of pregnancy experience and are generally able to involve themselves for many key milestones, from the embryo transfer to their baby’s birth moments.
Intended parents may face fewer restrictions with surrogacy than with adoption; those who cannot adopt due to agency restrictions on factors like age can still pursue surrogacy.
Surrogates have successfully carried other pregnancies and have a proven uterus, increasing their chances of successfully carrying a surrogate pregnancy or intended parent’s baby.
