What does it mean to be a Surrogate?
A Surrogate – or gestational carrier (GC) – is a woman who carries a child conceived through the process of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) where the child is not biologically related to the carrier. Eggs from the Intended Mother or an egg donor are used and are fertilized outside of the woman’s body; the resulting embryos are then placed in the uterus of a gestational carrier. This medical procedure – called the embryo transfer – will take place at an IVF facility selected by the intended parents. If a pregnancy results, the gestational carrier and intended parents will work together with our office to ensure a happy and healthy delivery. This differs from a traditional surrogacy arrangement where the surrogate mother supplies the egg and is the biological mother of the child she delivers.
Reproductive Possibilities, LLC locates gestational carriers and manages gestational carrier arrangements exclusively, though we use the more common term of surrogate mother elsewhere on our site. Our goal is to match you with intended parents for the journey ahead. You will have the opportunity to learn more about our potential parents and speak with them prior to matching.
