What Is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a cooperative process in which healthy woman with a suitable reproductive system carries a child for another woman who is unable to conceive or to carry out a full term pregnancy due to reasons of age, uterine conditions or on-going treatments for other conditions.

Are There Different Types Of Surrogacy?

Yes. There are two separate forms of surrogacy. They are:

Partial Surrogacy -The sperm of the intended father is used to fertilize an embryo with the surrogate mother’s womb by Artificial Insemination or Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI). After fertilization the embryo is transferred to the intended mother’s uterus for gestation.

Gestational (Full) surrogacy -The embryo gestates in the surrogate mother’s womb instead of the patient’s.

Should I Consider Surrogacy As An Option?

Surrogacy is quite a common and useful options for intended parents who are beset with certain reproductive system failures due to no fault of their own, such as-

  • Malformed or surgically removed uterus due to certain medical treatments.
  • Repeated miscarriages of pregnancies.
  • Recurrent IVF failure.

How Is A Surrogate Chosen?

According to the laws laid down by the government of India, here, at the clinics run by Dr. Nandita Palshetkar , the leading Ivf and infertility specialist in India, we routinely follow these guidelines.

  • Preference is given to a healthy female relative of the patient, preferably of the same generation as the patient.
  • The surrogate mother must be HIV negative and free of other STD’s.
  • No woman may be a surrogate more than thrice in her natural lifespan.
