What is surrogacy?
It is a procedure in which a woman carries and gives birth to a child for another couple or intended parents. The woman who carries this child is called the surrogate mother. Broadly, we can categorize the surrogacy as two types:
Traditional surrogacy- In this type of surrogacy, the surrogate mothers donates the eggs and bears the child of the intended parents. The egg of the surrogate mother can be inseminated with the sperm of intended man or donated sperm. In this, the surrogate mother is genetically related to the child.
Gestational surrogacy- In this type, embryo is created through IVF. It is transferred to the uterus of surrogate mother. It is the common type of surrogacy and the surrogate mother is not related to the child genetically. In this technique, the egg and sperms are donated by intended parents.
Know about protecting your rights
It should be noted that a number of legal aspects of protecting your rights are involved. It is highly recommended that the parties involved in surrogacy should hire their own legal experts to avoid any issues later on. Before the embryo is transferred into the body of surrogate mother, there should be a legal agreement between the parties involved into it. It not only protects the intended parents but the surrogate mothers also.
Certain other key factors to be included are where the child is to be born, expectations after child birth, dietary concerns, legal steps to be followed to get the name of intended parents on the birth certificated and various others. If there is any problem, your agreement will be your best protection. It is highly recommended that it should be spelt out and explained well to both the parties.
