What is surrogacy ?

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.

Is surrogacy for me ?

You can opt for surrogacy if you are having any following medical indication.

  • Not having a uterus as a result of a hysterectomy or being born without a functional uterus.
  • Significant uterine abnormalities, including uterine scarring (Asherman’s Syndrome) and inability to develop a thick, supportive uterine lining.
  • Significant medical conditions that make carrying a pregnancy risky for a woman’s health (such as hypertension).
  • Chronic reproductive loss.
  • Repeated IVF failure.

how the process of surrogacy starts?

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.

Gestational Surrogacy Age and the Success?

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.

Are there any legal issues?

Yes, there are legal issues in surrogacy.
