Types of Surrogacy

Now there are three different types of surrogacies that are chosen by different couples based on their situation or scenarios. Types of surrogacy include:

  1. Gestational: With the help of IVF, it is possible to retrieve eggs from the mother or an egg donor, fertilize them with sperm from the father or donor in the lab and transfer the embryo into the uterus of a gestational surrogate. The gestational surrogate includes the egg and the sperm of the couple. The eggs used in this surrogacy are not of the surrogate mother. After placing the embryo in the uterus, a surrogate mother carries the baby until birth. She doesn’t have any genetic ties or rights on the child because it wasn’t her egg that was used in the fertilization. The Legal Rights of the child lie with the parents.

Now, gestational surrogacy includes two following types:

    • Commercial Surrogacy: In this type of surrogacy, the surrogate mother will receive monetary compensation for carrying a child by the original parent.
    • Altruistic (non-commercial) surrogacy: In this surrogacy, the surrogate mother doesn’t receive any payment for the process.
  1. Traditional: In traditional surrogacy, a father’s sperm is artificially inseminated in the uterus of the surrogate mother. This surrogacy involves the sperm of the father but not the egg of the actual mother or the lady. So, the sperm that is inseminated, fertilizes an egg of the surrogate mother in her uterus. She carries the baby and delivers it for the couple to raise. The traditional surrogate is the baby’s biological mother which is why she has various rights over the baby. Hence, it is a very complex process and not is recommended.

Who needs surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a pregnancy option that is chosen by 12-15% of couples facing infertility issues. Apart from infertility issues, there are other reasons one may choose surrogacy are:

  • Serious health conditions like heart diseases, kidney disorders, etc prevent a woman to carry a baby.

  • Single parent or person who wishes to have his or her own biological child.
  • Couples of same-sex that wish to have a child can choose surrogacy.
  • Some busy women can’t take out time for pregnancy due to their career.

How to find a surrogate?

Finding a surrogate mother is not difficult. In most cases, any family that wishes to serve as a surrogate mother can come forward and decide to be one. In this situation, it’s always good for her to take all her time and decide after knowing the whole process.

In other cases, a couple who choose surrogacy to have a child can take the help of a surrogacy agency. A surrogacy agency finds a suitable surrogate mother by matching the criteria of both the couple and the surrogate.

We started the treatment with Dr. Gunjan in the year 2018 when my wife had an ectopic pregnancy. The key thing in this relationship was that we trusted the doctor blindly and the doctor also put their best efforts to help us in getting the good news. Hope everything will go positively. Thank you, doctor. Last but not least, Mr. Gaurav, the COO of Dr. Gunjan Hospital, is the biggest reason to have this long association with the doctor and the treatment. Always got positive thoughts and suggestions from him and they helped a lot. Thank you, Gaurav Ji.
