Surrogacy Services in Indiaby All India Event seo
Gestational or IVF surrogacy (also called the host or full surrogacy) is defined as an arrangement in which an embryo from the intended parents, or from a donated oocyte or sperm, is transferred to the surrogate’s uterus. In gestational surrogacy, the woman who carries the child (the gestational carrier) has no genetic connection to the child.
Surrogacy may be commercial (compensated) or altruistic, depending upon whether the surrogate receives a financial reward for her pregnancy. In commercial surrogacy, the surrogate is reimbursed for any medical costs and paid for her gestational services. With altruistic surrogacy, the surrogate is found through friends or acquaintances. She may be reimbursed for medical costs directly related to the pregnancy and for loss of income because of the pregnancy. Becoming a surrogate is a life-changing choice that can be tremendously rewarding, but it’s not without its challenges. The surrogate is required to commit to another family for a year or more as she undergoes medical and psychological evaluations and procedures, endure all of the challenges related to pregnancy and labour, and carry a baby that isn’t her own. But many women accept these challenges and believe the positives far outweigh the negatives. Surrogacy gives the surrogate the unique opportunity to give an incredible and selfless gift to another person or couple, but it also provides her with life-changing financial benefits and can create lasting, meaningful relationships between her and the family she helped to create.
Who needs surrogacy? The indications
Women may be unable to carry a child to term for the following reasons:
• Congenital or acquired absence of a functioning uterus. Congenital absence of the uterus such as Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster- Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is relatively rare, with an incidence of one per 4,000–5,000 new-born girls.
• Hysterectomy for various reasons. Obstetric complications during delivery or as a result of medical disease such as cervical cancer could also be a cause for hysterectomy and lead to uterine infertility in spite of healthy ovaries.
• Significant structural abnormalities or the presence of multiple fibroids.
• Persistently thin endometrium owing to endometrial TB.
• Asherman’s syndrome.
• Repeated miscarriages, repeated unexplained IVF failures despite retrieval of good-quality embryos.
• Repeated IVF failure owing to a non-receptive uterus.
• Certain medical conditions (eg, heart and renal disease), which might be life-threatening for a woman during pregnancy, are also considered as indications for surrogacy, provided that the intended mother is healthy enough to take care of a child after birth and that her life expectancy is reasonable.
• Biological inability to conceive or bear a child, which applies to same-sex male couples or single men, also approaches surrogacy.
