When starting a family, there are many options for those who have attempted countless times to start one. Fortunately, in the year 2021, there are so many options for those individuals who struggle. Gestational Surrogacy is a great option for those who want to have a genetic link to the baby.

But what is gestational surrogacy? Luckily at Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada, we have answers for the most frequent questions many may have starting this journey. 

  • What is Gestational Surrogacy?

Gestational surrogacy is an agreement made between a surrogate and a couple or individual, known as the intended parents. When both parties have decided to work together, the intended parents’ egg and sperm are then collected and fertilized in a lab setting. When the embryo is ready, it is transferred into your womb through a procedure called in vitro fertilization (IVF). 

Gestational surrogacy is most appealing to intended parents who want to have a child who is genetically related to them. 

  • Who are the Intended Parents Who Choose Gestational Surrogacy?

Anyone can choose gestational surrogacy as a method to start a family. Couples or individuals who are ready to take the next step can be: single, married, transracial or LGBT.  The majority of intended parents who choose gestational surrogacy are those who have struggled with infertility and are unable to conceive and carry a baby on their own.

Gestational surrogacy is also a great option for same sex couples and individuals who want to have a genetic link to the baby. In surrogacy-friendly states, both parents’ names are able to be placed on the baby’s birth certificate. 

  • Who are the Women Who Become Surrogates?

Surrogates are women who want to help deserving intended parents have a family they wouldn’t otherwise be able to have. They are very selfless, brave and loving women who understand the importance of family, and who want to give back to their communities. In fact, many surrogate mothers have already started their own family and are raising at least one child.

Surrogates come from all walks of life, and must meet certain requirements before officially starting the surrogacy journey with prospective intended parents.
