For people struggling with infertility, the long journey of trying to have a baby can seem unbearable. Surrogacy is an opportunity that people may turn to when looking at alternative ways to create a baby.
Surrogacy is a great option for couples where the woman is unable to carry the baby, for same sex couples, or for single people where bearing a child is physically not an option.
Traditional Surrogacy is where the woman carrying the child is birthing a baby created using her own eggs and a man’s sperm. This is often used in cases where the father will become the legal guardian of the baby and is a great option for same sex male couples. Gestational Surrogacy occurs when the woman carrying and birthing the baby is not the natural mother of the child, but carries eggs from the intended mother or donor, as well as sperm from the intended father or donor.
Surrogacy provides an answer for those who dream of having children yet are physically unable to do this on their own. Surrogacy is an organized and formal arrangement with a distinct legal contract and timelines. Some people find this option more intriguing than adoption, as the contact with the surrogate is generally completed upon the birth of the baby. It is also the opportunity for couple’s to have a biological connection to the child.
Although Surrogacy can be extremely expensive in Canada and the United States, there are other more financially feasible options available. By traveling abroad for Surrogacy services, a person can have access to the highest standard of medical care, save upwards of $50,000, and have the same amazing result; a beautiful baby to love and cherish.
