People explore surrogacy for several different reasons. Gestational surrogacy is a wonderful option for intended parents to have a child that is biologically connected to one or both parents for cases where they cannot carry themselves. Unlike traditional surrogacy, the baby is not biologically connected to the carrier in any way. The surrogate is the host for the embryo to grow and make it’s way into this world with a willing and healthy womb.
Many same-sex couples choose a surrogacy arrangement allowing them to be biologically connected to the child. Women who have a medical challenge that does not allow them to carry a child turn to gestational surrogacy as do women whose professions are limiting for a pregnancy. Whatever the reason for choosing a gestational surrogacy arrangement, one common thread is the altruistic spirit and warm hearts of willing candidates.
