Indications for Surrogacy

What is the difference between traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogate?

Traditional Surrogacy

In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate’s own eggs are fertilized using artificial insemination, making her the biological mother of the baby.

Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries a pregnancy for another person or couple.


In gestational surrogacy, the surrogate becomes pregnant through in-vitro fertilization and has no biological connection to the baby. The Gestational Carrier undergoes the transfer of an embryo created through In-Vitro Fertilization using the eggs and sperm of the intended parent(s) and/or an egg/sperm donor.

Gestational Surrogates are carefully chosen and screened by American Fertility Services, in order to increase the chances of the surrogate becoming and having a successful pregnancy and live birth.


Reasons for Gestational Surrogacy include:


Gay couples who desire to have a child

using their sperm and donated eggs. Single males who desire children


Single males who desire children
