Types of Surrogates
There are two types of surrogates and it is a critical decision for you to make. Now that being said, there are times when the decision may be out of your hands. Which type will suit your needs?
- In what is referred to as a traditional surrogacy, the egg which is used is the surrogate’s own egg which is fertilized by the prospective father’s sperm.
- Gestational surrogacy is when the surrogate has no relationship to the child they are carrying. The embryo is created in a lab using your own egg or a donor egg. It is created by the use of your partner’s sperm or donor sperm and is then implanted into the proposed surrogate.
You may not know how it is that you find a surrogate but that can be done through a reputable agency. You and your chosen surrogate will enter into a legally binding contract.
The Contract(s) Are Signed
All the contracts are signed, sealed and delivered and it is time to start creating your child. If you are using your own eggs you will begin a course of hormone therapy to stimulate egg production and then undergo the egg retrieval procedure. Your surrogate will also receive fertility treatment prior to implantation and during the pregnancy. Once her pregnancy is confirmed, she will start receiving payment and you will be in for an exciting ride for the next 9 months.
