Indications for 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.
