What is surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction where a woman (i.e., the surrogate) agrees to bear a child for another person or persons (i.e., intended parents), who will become the child’s parent(s) after birth.


In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is the biological mother of the child and in gestational surrogacy, the surrogate is not the biological mother of the child.


Gestational surrogacy is far more common than traditional surrogacy in the USA nowadays.
