How gestational surrogacy works

Finding a gestational carrier
In gestational surrogacy, an intended parent or parents work with a person who carries a pregnancy for them
Creating embryos
Embryos are created using genetic material from the intended parent(s) or a donor and then transferred to a gestational carrier through an embryo transfer after in vitro fertilization (IVF)
Why gestational surrogacy
Surrogacy is an important option for people experiencing infertility, single parents by choice, same-sex couples, and others unable to carry a pregnancy
