What Is Traditional Surrogacy
Traditional surrogacy describes the practice where a surrogate mother carries and gives birth to her child with the intention of it being adopted by its intended parents once the child is born. A surrogate mother is often impregnated with either the sperm of the intended father or from an anonymous donor, and can be done so via either intercourse or artificial insemination.
What Is Gestational Surrogacy?
Gestational surrogacy is when a surrogate agrees to be a carrier for an embryo that is not related to her. The embryo often comes from the egg of the expecting mother and the sperm from the intended father, from an anonymous donor, or a combination of these. In any case, this scenario describes those circumstances where the surrogate is not genetically related to the embryo, and has agreed to carry out a pregnancy for someone who is unable to, or chooses not to.
What Is Commercial Surrogacy?
A commercial surrogacy arrangement is where a surrogate is compensated for carrying a pregnancy and giving birth on behalf of the intended parents. The intended parents also often cover all medical and other related expenses.
