- When a woman agrees to carry and deliver a child for another person or couple, it is known as surrogacy. Typically, there are two types of surrogacy arrangements- gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. In a gestational arrangement, the gestational carrier has no genetic connection to the child.
- On the other hand, in a traditional surrogacy, a surrogate gets pregnant with the use of her own eggs. If the surrogate receives compensation for carrying and delivering a child, the arrangement is called a commercial surrogacy.
- At BLK Super Specialty Hospital, we offer a surrogacy program for intended parents. Female infertility, medical factors making pregnancy risky or impossible, intended parent is a single man or woman and same-sex couple who wish to become parents could be the various reasons for a couple to opt for a surrogate pregnancy.
