Chasing the dream of parenthood is not always easy – at least not for everyone. As the shadow of infertility looms large, people from all over the world look for treatments and answers to their plight. 

Surrogacy is one such answer that is a win-win situation for both the potential parents and the surrogates. This rising phenomena, which has become especially popular in the Indian subcontinent, has attracted many a wishful couple. These couples travel to India with the hope of finally realizing their dreams of becoming parents.

What Exactky is It?

Surrogacy is a medical process in which a woman chooses to bear the biological child of another couple, bringing the pregnancy to term in her own womb and giving birth to their child. While the gestational surrogate(as the surrogate mother is usually called), does give birth to the child, she has no biological or genetic ties to it.

The Legal Perspective 

Owing to the legal acceptance of this treatment,
surrogacy in India has become increasingly common. Apart from there being many healthy young women willing to be surrogates, it is also cost effective. Several IVF clinics specialize in surrogacy treatments, and provide health care and medical facilities, right from the collection of the eggs and sperms, to the in vitro fertilization, the identification and contractual hiring of a surrogate and the eventual transfer of the embryo.

A Seamless Process 

With the help of these clinics, patients can easily find healthy surrogates, who are willing to have their baby.  For a growing number of women from all over the world, for whom in vitro fertilization is no longer a viable infertility treatment option, surrogacy in India offers a real chance of having their own baby.
