In a simplified language, surrogacy means hiring healthy woman’s womb ( uterus ), for carrying pregnancy of a couple, who are unable to carry the pregnancy due to any valid medical reason.
The practice by which a woman (called a surrogate mother) becomes pregnant and gives birth to a baby in order to give it to someone who cannot have children.
You can opt for surrogacy if you are having any following medical indication.
Once the surrogate has been selected and surrogacy screening completed, a legal contract is made between surrogate mother and biological parents, then the cycles of the surrogate and intended parent will be synchronized. The intended mother or supplier of the eggs (egg donor) undergoes the treatment for a routine IVF cycle, while the surrogate’s uterus is being prepared to receive the embryos. The surrogate’s cycle normally includes Lupron injections, oral estrogen, and progesterone support.
Although the quality of the surrogate uterus is important to a successful gestational surrogacy cycle, most physicians feel that the critical factors are age and the quality of the eggs. Generally, the younger the age of the intended mother the better.
Clinical pregnancy rates achieved in large series are up to 40% per transfer and series have reported 60% of hosts achieving live births.
