What is surrogacy?

Surrogacy is an assisted reproductive treatment (ART) in which a woman (surrogate) carries a child in her uterus on behalf of another person because they are unable to carry a pregnancy themselves.  For some women, using a surrogate is their only hope of having a child.

‘Gestational surrogacy’ is where an embryo created using an egg and sperm produced by the commissioning parent(s) or donors is transferred into the surrogate’s uterus. In these circumstances, the surrogate has no genetic link to the child.

Surrogacy is a highly complex process and there are many important steps in place to ensure all parties are well informed.

The surrogate’s eggs cannot be used to conceive the child.
