WHAT IS SURROGACY

A surrogacy arrangement or surrogacy agreement is the carrying of a pregnancy for intended parents. There are two main types of surrogacy, gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. In gestational surrogacy, the pregnancy results from the transfer of an embryo created by in Vitro Fertilization (IVF), in a manner so the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate. Gestational surrogates are also referred to as gestational carriers. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is impregnated naturally or artificially, but the resulting child is genetically related to the surrogate.

Gestational surrogacy

A surrogate is implanted with an embryo created by IVF. The resulting child is genetically unrelated to the surrogate. There are several sub-types of gestational surrogacy as noted below.

Gestational surrogacy with embryo from both intended parents

A surrogate is implanted with an embryo created by IVF, using intended father’s sperm and intended mother’s eggs.

Gestational surrogacy and egg donation

A surrogate is implanted with an embryo created by IVF, using intended father’s sperm and a donor egg where the donor is not the surrogate. The resulting child is genetically related to intended father and genetically unrelated to the surrogate.

Gestational surrogacy and donor sperm

A donor embryo is implanted in a surrogate; such embryos may be available when others undergoing IVF have embryos left over, which they opt to donate to others. The resulting child is genetically unrelated to the intended parent(s) and genetically unrelated to the surrogate.

Traditional surrogacy

This involves naturally or artificially inseminating a surrogate with intended father’s sperm via IUI, this method, the resulting child is genetically related to intended father and genetically related to the surrogate.

Traditional surrogacy and donor sperm

A surrogate is artificially inseminated with donor sperm via IUI, IVF or home insemination. The resulting child is genetically unrelated to the intended parent(s) and genetically related to the surrogate.
