A surrogacy arrangement, also known as a surrogacy agreement is the carrying of a pregnancy for intended couples who wish to become parents. Surrogacy is a process whereby a woman, (a substitute) agrees to go through pregnancy to carry a child for another person or persons, who will ultimately become the newborn child’s parents after birth. Intended parents usually seek a surrogacy arrangement when pregnancy is medically impossible, or the pregnancy risks present an unacceptable danger to the mother’s health, or a same sex couple wishes to have a child of their own. There are two main types of surrogacy arrangements;
Gestational Surrogacy occurs when a women acting as the surrogate mother carries a baby for the intended couple or for another person. The gestational surrogate has no genetic relationship with the child which she is carrying. The intended parents are named on the birth certificate of the child born via surrogacy.
The embryo is created by an egg which comes from the intended mother or that of a donor while the sperm comes from either the intended father or that of a donor. A procedure called in-vitro Fertilization (IVF) is used to create the embryo(s), which is then transferred into the surrogate’s mother uterus who ultimately carries the child to term. If at least one member of the intending parent is the genetic parent of the child, the intending parents or individuals are considered to be the natural parents of the child held by the surrogate on their behalf.
Traditional Surrogacy on the other hand, occurs when the substitute/surrogate mother uses her own eggs to create the child that she is carrying for the intended couple or the individual. Either the sperm of the intended father is used or that of a donor to create the child.
Although the surrogate mother has a genetic connection with the child, (as her egg is in use) all intentions are for her to contractually and legally relinquish and grant parental rights of the child upon birth to the intended parents or the individual who are patiently waiting for that child.
Upon birth, the child is handed over to the intended parent(s) who are free to raise the child as their own.
