TYPES OF SURROGACY

Traditional Surrogacy

A traditional surrogate is a woman who gets artificially inseminated with either the intended father's sperm or donor sperm using her own eggs and is sometimes a route intended parents go down for there own personal reasons

Gestational Surrogacy

In gestational surrogacy, the child is not biologically related to the surrogate mother, who is often referred to as a gestational carrier. Instead, the embryo is created via in vitro fertilization (IVF), using the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors, and is then transferred to the surrogate.
