What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is the procedure in which another lady (surrogate) is taken into consideration to bear the child of a couple who cannot produce an offspring in a natural way. Surrogacy is also known as the womb renting. The embryo is planted successfully into the uterus of the surrogate under the guidance of a qualified Reproductive Endocrinologist. The embryo then grows and the surrogate mother carries the fetus until the time of the delivery.

A surrogate mother should get a very good care. Although we pay her for her services, she is also doing a noble cause. She is carrying your baby in her womb for this, she should get all the best-required treatments.

A surrogate mother should remain positive and eat healthy for a successful delivery. She should also sleep well and remain hydrated.
