What Is Surrogacy?

What Is Surrogacy?

Gestational surrogacy is when you choose another person to carry your baby. Working with a fertility center, a healthy woman will carry and then give birth to your baby. If you have infertility and are struggling to get pregnant, gestational surrogacy may be an option.

During gestational surrogacy, doctors use your eggs—along with your partner’s sperm—to implant your embryo in the surrogate mother. This embryo is implanted in the surrogate mother by using in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Since gestational surrogacy uses your eggs, the surrogate mother is the “gestational carrier.” This means that the baby she gives birth to is not biologically her own.

Surrogacy became legal in the state of Utah in 2005. Our first surrogacy cycle was in November 2005.

We will help you evaluate the benefits of gestational surrogacy and provide you with information about cost, legal issues, and treatment protocols. Our goal is to help you achieve the best pregnancy outcomes that are right for you.
