Carrying a baby for someone else is one of the most profound gifts a woman can give. If you enjoy being pregnant and are healthy, being a surrogate for a couple who could not otherwise have a baby is likely to be a deeply rewarding experience for you.
As a gestational carrier, you are not genetically related to the child. Instead, an egg is removed from a mom-to-be or an egg donor and is fertilized with sperm to create an embryo. The embryo is placed inside the uterus of a gestational carrier. Your healthy body is a temporary space for the embryo to grow into a healthy baby.
Gestational carriers are compensated for the risks they take on and most surrogates find the emotional rewards to be much greater and deeper than they had ever imagined.
