How Many Types Of Surrogacy Are There ?  

Surrogacy is a medical solution for infertile couples. Women or a couple, who cannot bear children on their own, can be blessed with a baby with the help of a surrogate mother. There are basically two types of surrogacy, namely gestational and genetic.

Gestational surrogacy is the more common of the two types of surrogacy. Here the egg of the mother and the sperm of the father are fertilized outside under laboratory conditions. The fertilization takes place through a process called in vitro fertilization. After the egg is fertilized, it is implanted into the uterus of the surrogate mother. A big advantage of this kind of surrogacy is that the legal complications are less in such procedures.

The other type of surrogacy is the traditional type known as the genetic surrogacy. It gets it name as the surrogate mother is genetically related to the baby she delivers. The surrogate mother is the egg donor. This option is chosen by women or couples when the mother has a genetic defect which might adversely affect the unborn baby or her egg is incapable of being fertilized or there is a problem with the functioning of the ovaries and/or uterus. 

Sometimes, surrogacy is classified depending on the monetary transaction involved in the procedure. These again can be classified into two types, namely commercial and altruistic. The commercial one is the type where all expenses are paid by the would-be parents along with the fees to the surrogate mother for her role and time. This could prove to be very expensive as the fees for her role can be just about anything and is never clearly stated.

In the altruistic method, there is no monetary transaction and only basic expenses such as medical and prenatal requirements are paid.

Whatever the type of surrogacy, it is best to have a lawyer present at all time of the transaction.
