What is traditional surrogacy?
In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother’s egg is used as the foundation of the pregnancy. The surrogate in this scenario has a genetic and biological link to the pregnancy she might carry.
What is gestational surrogacy?
A gestational surrogate has absolutely no genetic link to the baby she is carrying. The intended parents’ fertilized egg is transferred into the surrogate mother’s uterus, which has been prepared hormonally to carry a pregnancy.
What are the chances of success with surrogacy?
Surrogacy success rates are influenced by the IVF clinic, the health and viability of the embryo, and the health and fertility history of the surrogate. Our fertility clinic can help you determine your best chances of achieving a successful pregnancy in your specific circumstances.
What are the benefits of being a surrogate mother?
Surrogate mothers provide a fantastic gift for couples and individuals experiencing infertility and dreaming of a family. The intended parents provide the compensation to surrogate mothers, and the details are shown in the section of Program Compensation.
How much contact will surrogate mothers have with the intended parents?
Every arrangement is different, but typically as much as the surrogate mother likes and what was agreed upon during the matching stage.
