WHAT IS SURROGACY ?
Surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple. Surrogacy involves the transfer of one or more fertilized embryos derived from the infertile woman’s eggs and her partner’s sperm into the uterus of a surrogate. In this case, the surrogate provides a host womb but does not contribute genetically to the baby.
WHO NEEDS SURROGACY ?
Surrogacy is intended for women with
- diseased uterus / absent uterus
- repeated implantation failure / abortions and
- medical inability to undergo stress of pregnancy and labour.
