is a wonderful choice for many women who otherwise would
not get to experience the joys of motherhood. At SRMS,
both gestational and genetic surrogacy options are available.
Detailed descriptions of each are below.
In the gestational surrogacy
procedure, the gestational surrogate acts as an "incubator"
for the pregnancy. While she is the birth mother of
the child, she is not the genetic mother of the child.
The pregnancy, instead, was a result of combining
the husband's sperm and his wife's eggs in the laboratory
through the IVF process. A couple of embryos are then
transferred via a simple catheter into the gestational
surrogate's uterus and she carries the pregnancy to
Gestational surrogacy may be thought of as a logical
extension of the IVF process for a woman who has functioning
ovaries, but does not have a uterus. A woman who has
experienced multiple miscarriages, or one who has
been advised by her doctor not to become pregnant
because of other medical conditions may also request
Genetic surrogacy is the process in which a woman agrees
to become inseminated with sperm from the husband of
the intended couple. The surrogate contributes the egg
and the uterus. She carries the pregnancy and gives
birth to the baby. This type of surrogacy would be indicated
if the woman is without her uterus and is missing or
has poorly functioning ovaries, a genetic disease which
could be passed on to the baby or another medical condition
that precludes pregnancy.
