Surrogacy involves reproduction the process of giving birth as a surrogate mother. There are two kinds of surrogate mothers, traditional and gestational. A traditional surrogate is a woman who is artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm. The surrogate carries the baby and delivers it for the parents. The traditional surrogate is the baby’s biological mother; it was her egg fertilized by the father’s sperm. However, donor sperm may also be used for a traditional surrogacy. In the case of gestational surrogates, in vitro fertilization (IVF) allows the harvesting of eggs from the mother. The eggs are fertilized with sperm from the father, the embryo in placed into the uterus of the gestational surrogate or “birth mother.” The surrogate carries the baby until birth but does not have any genetic ties to the child.
