Understanding How Surrogacy Works
The Surrogacy Process
Surrogacy has allowed many loving parents to have a child of their own, even in situation where due to biologic reasons the couple or individual is not able to carry a baby to term. The surrogacy process is very similar to an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle, except that after fertilization has occurred in the laboratory, the healthy embryos will be transferred to a gestational carrier. This woman will carry the baby and give birth, at which point the child will be given to the intended parents.
Surrogacy is able to work around many different causes of infertility, providing hope to prospective parents who have been unable to start a family on their own. At Pacific Surrogacy & Egg Donation, our specialists carefully match potential surrogates with intended parents. We perform thorough background checks and various medical and psychological evaluations to ensure that we find the best possible candidate to carry your baby.
Choosing to become a gestational carrier for someone else's child offers hope to women and couples who have had difficulty conceiving on their own. If you are selected to become a surrogate, you can expect to undergo a series of medical examinations and screenings. These are designed to ensure you are a good match with the intended parents and that you are in excellent health.
