In gestational surrogacy, a surrogate is not related to the child that she carries. Instead, a previously created embryo will be transferred into her uterus. If an egg or sperm donor is required, the fertility clinic will handle much of this surrogacy process while we oversee it. If the intended mother’s eggs will be used to produce an embryo, she will be administered a course of drugs to stimulate the production of multiple eggs. On the other hand, many of our intended parents have remaining embryos from previous IVF cycles. Usually, these can also be used for the embryo transfer process. Once all conditions have been satisfied, the embryo will be transferred to your surrogate. A few months later, once a healthy pregnancy is confirmed, base compensation of monthly payments will begin. Supporting the surrogate is a very important part of the overall surrogacy process, especially at this stage. Her surrogacy specialist will be available for her during every step of the pregnancy, and we educate and encourage intended parents to be there for her as well in any way they can.
