A baby carried by a gestational surrogate mother has no genetic relation to her. The biological parents eggs and sperm sample are used to create embryos that are later transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus. When the biological mother or father cannot provide their own material for the surrogacy program, an egg or sperm donor is used.* One of the Intended Parents must legally be genetically linked to the baby, therefore both an egg and sperm donor cannot be used when proceeding with surrogacy.
All the surrogate mothers approved for our program are healthy, do not drink, smoke or take drugs, are between 18 and 35 years old and have at least one healthy child of their own.
If the surrogate mother is married when she participates in the surrogacy program, her husband signs a written, notarized consent, where he agrees that his wife takes part in the surrogacy program. He acknowledges that she has his support and he will not have any claims for the paternity of the child delivered by the surrogate mother.
