Surrogacy referred to as ‘assisted reproduction’ also benefits women who have no uterus or have a damaged one. Surrogacy is a good choice to parent a child for couples who agree to put an end to ineffective infertility treatment, It’s the nearest to having a biological child of your own when all other choices fail, with the added advantages of letting you participate closely in your baby’s birth and gestation.
What is Surrogacy?
The process in which other women help you to carry your child if you are unable to carry or conceive a child of your own.
For the ‘Intended Parents.’ The surrogate mother is agreeable to be impregnated by InVitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure and then carries the resulting baby. After the birth of the child, the surrogate mother relinquishes all her parental rights to the child.
Why is surrogacy safe?
Surrogacy is sometimes considered a safe option for people who want to have babies as there are cases when the original mother faces health problems that may get elevated during the time of pregnancy and/or childbirth or are physically unable to do so. Surrogacy allows couples to have children who are not in any danger of health issues.
There are two basic types of surrogacy options- Full surrogacy (also known as Host or Gestational surrogacy) and Partial surrogacy (also known Straight or Traditional surrogacy).
Gestational surrogacy – It is the most common of type of surrogacy. In this type of arrangements are involved the intended parents of the child and the surrogate mother who agrees to carry the embryo(s) made either from:
1. The egg(s) and sperm of the intended parents.
2. A donated egg fertilized with sperm from the intended father prior to implantation, via a process called in vitro fertilization or IVF.
3. An embryo created using donor eggs and donor sperm selected by the intended parents.
In this form of surrogacy, the surrogate mother is not biologically or genetically related in any way to the unborn child.
Traditional Surrogacy – With this type of arrangement, a surrogate woman acts as both egg donor and surrogate. In this surrogacy arrangement, a traditional surrogate agrees to donate her egg(s) to be artificially inseminated with the sperm of either the intended father or a sperm donor.
In traditional surrogacy process, the surrogate woman is impregnated by artificial insemination or intrauterine insemination (IUI) and is genetically linked to the child she carries because her own eggs are used in the process.
Despite the significant financial burden, and the long drawn out processes, surrogacy is a satisfying option for many couples. However finding a suitable surrogate is not easy and the whole process of surrogacy itself is an emotionally-draining one. The necessary psychological assessment and detailed explanation about expectations is vital for a positive outcome of the process.
