Know About Gestational Surrogacy!

Surrogacy is an agreement between a couple who cannot have their babies through IVF, IUI, or any other advanced medical interventions and the individual who is ready to nurture and deliver the baby for the childless couple to raise. Sometimes, the intended couple uses their sperm and eggs to create the embryo. Otherwise, an egg donor is required to serve this purpose. Usually, the gestational carriers (individuals who carry the baby) have no genetic relationship to the babies they deliver.

Who considers surrogacy to achieve their dreams of parenthood?

There is no ‘one size fits all’ regarding surrogacy. The different types of people who choose surrogacy are:

• Couples with untreatable infertility

• Intended ladies who are unable to carry a child due to certain medical conditions

• Parents with a genetic defect or health conditions that may pass on to the baby

Surrogacy is just one way for people to grow their families who can’t do so independently, alongside adoption and foster care.

Critical factors for a successful surrogacy process

Here are some of the crucial factors that contribute to a successful surrogacy arrangement:

• Good physical and mental health of the surrogate and the intended couple

• Transparent communication and understanding between both the parties

• Possessing a sound understanding of all the medical procedures involved

• Being prepared for the financial costs involved

Why gestational surrogacy over other options?

• Surrogacy creates a platform where the intended parents can have a genetic link to their baby by biologically contributing (with their eggs or sperm).

• Surrogacy enables the engaged couples to be completely involved during the pregnancy and the birth of their child throughout the surrogacy process.

• Surrogates don’t have any genetic relationship with the baby, and the expectant couple can be assured of the same.

• Surrogacy helps people who tried but couldn't get pregnant with various assisted reproduction techniques, such as IVF.

Common factors to consider while choosing a surrogate

Age - Surrogates must be between the ages of 21 and 45 years old. Again, the range of the surrogate’s age differs by location.

Reproductive background - They also have to have carried at least one pregnancy — without complications —to minimize the possibilities of potential pregnancy risks.

Lifestyle - A supportive environment must surround surrogates to ensure their physical and psychological well-being, directly impacting the baby’s development.

Tests - Surrogates must undergo potential mental and physical screening before initiating the process.
