Surrogacy

Surrogacy

Best Surrogacy Centre Delhi, India

Surrogacy is a third-party reproduction method where a carrier mother (the surrogate) bears and delivers a child for another couple after they have agreed on a legal agreement. The pregnancy takes place through IVF or other methods, where the embryo is prepared in the lab and transferred to the carrier’s womb for gestation. 

There are two methods of Surrogacy.

Traditional Surrogacy (Partial, natural, or straight surrogacy): In this method, the surrogate’s egg is fertilised by the intended father’s or a donor’s sperm and the fetus is genetically or biologically related to the surrogate. It is not allowed in India.

Gestational Surrogacy (Host, or full surrogacy): In this method, an embryo formed by in vitro fertilization, is implanted into the uterus of the surrogate mother who carries and delivers the baby. The resultant baby is not genetically related to the surrogate.

The resultant embryo can be created by: 

  • Using the intended father’s sperm and the intended mother’s eggs
  • Using the intended father’s sperm and a donor egg
  • Using the intended mother’s egg and donor sperm
  • Using a donor egg and a donor sperm i.e donor embryo (in surrogate) not allowed in India

Type of Surrogacy

Depending upon whether the surrogate receives financial reward for her pregnancy, surrogacy is further divided into two parts:

Commercial surrogacy: If a surrogate receives money for the surrogacy arrangement, it is considered commercial surrogacy. It is banned in India under the Surrogacy (Regulation) Act, 2021.

Altruistic surrogacy: If the surrogate receives no compensation beyond reimbursement of her medical and other pregnancy-related expenses along with the insurance coverage for her, it is considered as altruistic surrogacy. Only this type of surrogacy is legal in India now under the Surrogacy (Regulation) Act, 2021.
