Types of Surrogacy
If you are considering surrogacy, there are two main types of surrogacy:
Traditional Surrogacy–Artificial Insemination
In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is artificially inseminated with sperm from the husband of the couple, or a single man. She is genetically related to the child.
If the man is married, his wife or husband adopts the child after birth and a new birth certificate issues with their names on it. Oftentimes, our surrogates do self-inseminations, although this is entirely up to you and her.
While traditional surrogacy may still be applicable in some cases, it is utilized far less often than gestational surrogacy.
Gestational Surrogacy (either with or without an egg donor)–In Vitro Fertilization / Embryo Transfer
In a gestational surrogacy, the surrogate does not supply the egg. The biological mother may provide the egg, or the egg may come from a donor.
Gestational surrogacy is considered by families for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to:
- Same-sex partnerships. Often, same-sex couples will choose surrogacy as a way to grow their family. Male same-sex couples frequently choose surrogacy so one of the male partners can be a biological father to the child; however, female same-sex couples may also choose surrogacy if neither partner wishes to or is able to carry the child.
- Infertility. Infertility among females is common, and many women find themselves unable to become pregnant through natural means or unable to carry a baby to term.
- Medical problems. There are many medical issues that can prevent a woman from carrying a baby to term that are apart from infertility. Women who have certain medical issues may choose to have a surrogate carry a child instead.
- Single parenting. Many single fathers have chosen to take control over growing their family by choosing surrogacy. Surrogacy can allow a single man to become the biological father of a child without the need for a relationship with a woman.
Who Can Become a Surrogate?
For a woman to become a surrogate mother, she must first and foremost be healthy and stable. The other fundamental requirements are that:
1) she has previously had a child.
2) she is 18-35.
3) she is a non-smoker.
4) she is a U.S. citizen, and not living in MI.
5) she is <200 lbs.
How Is Surrogate Candidacy Determined?
Before becoming a surrogate mother, a woman will undergo a variety of testing procedures in order to confirm that she is indeed healthy and able to carry a baby to term.
These tests may include:
- Medical history screening
- Psychological testing and/or counseling
- Criminal background check
- A physical examination
- Blood testing
If the results of these tests are satisfactory to medical professionals and the family considering surrogacy, the process of beginning the surrogacy can continue.
Why Do Women Become Surrogate Mothers?
Becoming a surrogate mother takes an exceptional amount of work. Not only is pregnancy physically and emotionally taxing for a woman, it is 24/7 job with no breaks. A surrogate cannot simply “walk away” from the task a few months in.
Women who choose to become surrogate mothers for other families honestly love children and have a deep desire to help people who are unable to have children of their own.
Surrogate mothers come from all demographic backgrounds, all races, all sexual orientations, and all belief systems.
