What is a Surrogate?
A surrogate is a woman who has a fertilized egg from another woman transferred into her uterus and carries and delivers the child on behalf of the intended parent(s).
The woman carrying the pregnancy is not biologically related to the child she is carrying; the eggs and sperm come from the intended parents (and in some instances, donor and/or sperm donor). Through the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF), the eggs are fertilized in the lab and then the embryo is transferred into the uterus of the surrogate.
