What is a Surrogate and Surrogate Mother?

Surrogacy is when another woman agrees to carry your baby for you. This can be either a single baby or twins at no extra cost. Embryos from the Intended Parents are implanted at an IVF Clinic in the surrogate mother. She then hopefully will get pregnant from the embryos and deliver a beautiful baby in nine months. Typically, surrogate mothers don’t carry more then two babies or twins. Intended Parents usually only opt for surrogacy and using a surrogate mother when they cannot have a baby on their own. The causes can be many including infertility, age of the Intended Mother, cancer and fibroids among others.
