Surrogacy for Infertile Couples
Having a baby by taking help of surrogacy is an exciting way by which couples can enhance their family. Today childless couples realize the importance and significance of surrogacy with the aid of which they can realize their dreams. Procreation is a basic desire of all individuals. However, there are many individuals who are denied the joys of parenthood for various biological and other reasons. Technology is helping people worldwide to overcome the difficulties and become proud parents. With the passage of time, it has been observed that surrogacy is fast becoming a preferred method by many childless couples.
Having a baby by taking help of surrogacy is an amazing opportunity for couples, which helps them to enhance their family. With the changing times, many childless couples now realize the importance and significance of surrogacy with the aid of which they can realize their dreams.
The process of surrogacy is done in a manner where a couple who has been trying to have a child goes into an agreement with a lady. As per the contract this lady would sign a contract to gestate a baby on the behalf of the infertile couple. Post delivery she would give them the child. This type of surrogacy parenting is also termed as contract parenting.
There are two types of surrogate parenting: traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy. In case of a traditional surrogacy, insemination is done in the surrogate with the male sperm who is the child’s rearing parent. Here the surrogate mother is the genetic as well as the gestational mother and hence has to enter a contract whereby she will have no legitimate rights over the child.
Gestational surrogacy would be different. In this case there are chances that both the intended rearing mother and father will have a genetic connection with the baby. In this process the eggs are taken out from the intended rearing mother and are fertilized along with the rearing father’s sperm. This is done outside the womb or in vitro. Post this the embryo will be transplanted in the surrogate mother’s womb, who will have a gestational role in this case.
Commercial Surrogacy: In this procedure of surrogacy, there is a gestational baby carrier who takes money and delivers a child to a matured stage in her womb. Affluent couples who can afford for this surrogacy chose this option. It has been legalized and practiced in many counties. Commercial surrogacy is also referred as ‘wombs for rent’, outsourced pregnancies’ or even ‘baby farms’

Effect of the Surrogate Mother to child
A woman who carries a baby for someone else contributes very little DNA or rather hardly any to the child. This is due to the fact that the child already has DNA from its mother and father. However, there are chances that some DNA may be passed from the woman to the fetus that she is carrying. At the same time it can also be transferred from the child to the mother.
This exchanged DNA will have no effect at all. It will be a few cells hiding amongst trillions of original cells of the child.
Very less cells are exchanged between the surrogate mother and the child to influence any of her characteristics or impact the child in any manner.
