Starting a family can be a wonderful time in one’s life. However, while there are many who very much long to have children, for one reason or another. They are unable to conceive. There is a solution, though, in the process of surrogacy. Surrogacy involves the carrying of an embryo and the subsequent birthing of a baby by one woman. Referred to as the surrogate, for another individual or couple. There are two primary types of surrogacy traditional and gestational. There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of surrogacy. So the best option will depend upon each specific situation. One of the advantages of traditional surrogacy is that it typically involves a lower cost that gestational surrogacy. This is because there is no donation fee, and if the first effort at insemination does not work, it can be attempted again in a matter of weeks rather than several month.
