What is Surrogacy?
Surrogacy is a family creating option where a woman (Surrogate) allows an embryo to be implanted into her uterus and she carries the baby to full term. When the baby is born, the baby is handed over to it's biological parents, allowing a couple to have a son or daughter who is genetically related to them. Surrogate Pregnancy vrs.
