What kind of surrogacy are there? Does the surrogate have any genetic connection to the baby? In this blog post, we’ll be discussing the key differences between traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy.
In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother uses her egg to create a baby for another couple or individual.
Traditional surrogacy involves one woman acting as a surrogate mother to another couple or individual, using her own egg to create a baby for them. The surrogate then carries the child through pregnancy and delivery, allowing the intended parents to be fully involved in the process. This kind of surrogacy is not legal in most countries, due to ethical and legal reasons. It differs from Gestational Surrogacy, as gestational surrogates do not use their own eggs but rather fertilized embryos created by some other method such as IVF or with the help of donor eggs.
Nowadays, Gestational surrogacy is preferred over traditional surrogacy, as it eliminates some of the legal issues associated with surrogacy.
A gestational surrogate is someone who carries a baby that has been created using in vitro fertilization (IVF), with the egg and sperm coming from the intended parents or donors.
A gestational surrogate (often referred to “surrogate mother”) is the only option to parenthood for many couples and individuals, who can not have a baby the natural way. This special woman agrees to carry a baby created using in vitro fertilization, or IVF, with the egg and sperm coming from either the intended parents or donors. She plays a vital role in this process, as her contribution helps families become complete. In comparison to a surrogate, a gestational carrier engages in pregnancy without providing any genetic material or legal rights to the child conceived.
Her involvement ends upon delivery, ensuring that the parent-child bond begins at birth with the intended parent(s). Thanks to modern medical advances, gestational carriers are an increasingly popular option for those seeking help on their fertility journeys.
The main difference between traditional surrogates and gestational surrogates is that traditional surrogates are also the biological mothers of the babies they carry, while gestational surrogates have no biological connection to the babies they carry.
To ensure surrogates are well-qualified for the process, intended parents should look for a reputable agency who can help them through this journey. Gestational surrogates need to go through the same rigorous screening process before being approved by their fertility specialist. A gestational surrogate must meet certain qualifications in order to be accepted into a program – including medical and psychological evaluations. This process helps to ensure the safety of both the gestational surrogate and the intended parents, as well as providing assurance that their reproductive journey is successful and stress-free.
This evaluation process helps to ensure surrogates are emotionally capable of carrying a baby for another person, which can be an emotional rollercoaster. It also serves as an assurance that they understand the full implications of the arrangement.
