After several failed cycle of IVF treatment in Mumbai are you planning for surrogacy? If that is true then we are glad that you accepted the modern medical blessings to embrace parenthood in your life. But are you clear about the steps or associated processes of surrogacy? Before you visit surrogacy centers in Mumbai there are few things that you must know.
1What is surrogacy?
Surrogacy is the process in which another woman carries the intended couple’s biological child in her womb until delivery. Use of intended mother eggs and intended father’s sperm is used to make the embryo for transfer. In case of poor quality mother’s egg, the help of donor egg can be taken and vice versa for the father’s sperm also. The surrogate enters this process in lieu of monitory benefit.
Types of a surrogate:
There are 2 types or categories of surrogacy available. The first one is traditional in which surrogates egg is combined with sperm of intended father or donor’s sperm. The second one is gestational surrogacy in which the surrogate will give birth to the child developed using the intended mother’s egg or donor egg
2Who will be the biological mother of the unborn child through surrogacy?
This is one of the toughest questions to answer. The surrogate enters a legal contract with the intended parent’s to carry the child against monitory benefits. In the case of gestational surrogacy in India surrogate will not be the biological mother. But in the case of traditional surrogacy, she will be the biological mother but not the legal one. Traditional surrogacy is negligible in practice.
3Can the baby stay with the surrogate?
No, never as surrogate contracts strictly signed to ensure the protection of intended parents and surrogate. There are no legal rights of the surrogate on the baby.
Hope the above points gave you a brief idea about the important aspects of surrogacy.
