Surrogacy can be a mighty and life-altering path for those who want to have a family but cannot do so naturally. Unfortunately, for many couples surrogacy is not an option because of exorbitant costs or legal barriers. In the UK, for example, a surrogate cannot be compensated for services, causing fewer available surrogates. The law also favors the surrogate in terms of her choice to keep or relinquish the child at the end of the pregnancy. Couples in the US face similar barriers in terms of legal issues along with high costs for fertility treatments. Medical tourism can provide a way around these barriers.

When considering surrogacy abroad it is important to know what options are available. There are two types of surrogacy procedures that each aspiring surrogate, couple or individual must know about before approaching a medical tourism provider.

Types of Surrogacy

Gestational Surrogacy

Biologically, the Carrier has no genetic link to the child.

This can be done one of several ways : -

  • mother's egg, father's sperm - Example: this would be chosen if the biological mother was unable to carry for medical reasons.
  • donor egg, father's sperm - Example: if there was a question about egg quality of the mother, or there were no ovaries.
  • mother's egg, donor sperm - Example: this would be chosen if sperm quality was questioned.
  • donor egg, donor sperm - Example: this option would be chosen if the "parents" didn't want the Carrier to have any biological link to the child.

Traditional Surrogacy

The Carrier would be using her own egg, and therefore have a genetic link to the child. In this arrangement, the Surrogate agrees to be inseminated with the sperm of the Intended Father. After the birth, the surrogate agrees to terminate her parental rights, and the Intended Mother does a step-parent adoption.

While this is a very viable and more cost-effective option for many couples, We Care Health Services. cannot at this time assist you with this.

Gestational Surrogacy options explained with procedures used : -

There are actually five options available for couples looking to select a surrogate, and for women considering being in our program.

They are as follows : -
  • Artificial insemination (AI) : - The surrogate is artificially inseminated with the sperm from the husband of the couple. The child is genetically related to the surrogate. The wife of the couple adopts the child via a stepparent adoption.
  • In vitro fertilization/Embryo transfer (IVF/ET) : - An egg (or eggs) is retrieved from the wife of the couple, combined with her husband's sperm, and the resulting embryo(s) is implanted in the surrogate. The child is not genetically related to the surrogate, and the couple's names go on the original birth certificate.
  • IVF/ED : - In vitro fertilization with an egg donor. A donor's eggs are combined with the sperm from our client, and the resulting embryos are transferred to a surrogate. The child is not genetically related to the surrogate, and only the male's name goes on the birth certificate. If married, the wife of the couple then adopts the child, as with the AI procedure.
  • Artificial Insemination by Donor (AID) : - The surrogate is artificially inseminated with donor sperm, because both the husband and the wife of the couple are infertile. The child is genetically related to the surrogate, and both the husband and wife must adopt it.
  • Egg Donor (ED) : - The "surrogate" donates an egg (or eggs) which is fertilized with the husband's sperm, and the embryo is then transferred to his wife. The child is genetically related to the surrogate, but because the wife delivers the child, she does not need to adopt it. This is sort of a reverse surrogacy.
