Traditional Surrogacy

What Is Fetal

Traditional Surrogacy?

Traditional surrogacy is an arrangement where a woman who carries a pregnancy for an individual or couple is also the genetic mother of the child. The surrogate’s egg is artificially inseminated (fertilized) with a sperm the intended father or a donor. This differs from gestational surrogacy where a surrogate carries an embryo that she is not genetically related to.

Traditional surrogacy mas also be referred to as partial surrogacy or genetic surrogacy.
