How does it work
Types of surrogacy:
Surrogacy can be of two types, referred to as

Few Terms to understand:
- Intended Parents: The Parent who seeks to have a baby via surrogacy process.
- Surrogate Mother: The women who carries the baby to term, for the intended parents. Her identify and full personal/medical/and surgical history are disclosed to intended parents. Meetings are also arranged between her an the intended parents to get to know each other well.
- Donor: The man/ women who donate egg/sperm for usage in the different fertilization techniques. Their identifying details are usually not disclosed to the parents using their egg/sperm. These women do not carry the baby, merely donate the egg for the baby.
Genetic Makeup of
- IUI - Intra Uterine Insemination:
- The father's sperm is introduced in the surrogate/ intended mother's womb to allow for natural fertilization.
- The resulting embryo is then transferred to the surrogate mother uterus, and the child is then carried by her to full term for nine months.
- IVF - In Vitro Fertilization:
- The egg and sperm are fertilized outside the body of the surrogate mother, in a sterile environment
- Fertilized embryo is then planted in the surrogate mother's uterus for carrying the baby to full term.
