How is a Surrogacy Pregnancy Different from a Personal Pregnancy?
Whether as an intended parent or surrogate mother, the surrogacy process can seem complex at times. One part of the process that can seem this way is pregnancy. What’s the difference between a surrogacy pregnancy and a regular pregnancy? Does one need more preparation for the other? How safe is surrogacy pregnancy? Let’s go over the surrogacy process to understand better how surrogacy pregnancy works.
At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma, we aim to ease any stress or concerns you might have along your surrogacy journey. Our team is ready to help you with every step of our organized surrogacy plan.
What is Gestational Surrogacy?
One big difference between surrogacy pregnancy and personal pregnancy is the process of gestational surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy is when the surrogate mother carries the fertilized egg of the intended mother to term. This way, the surrogate mother is in no way biologically linked to the child. This form of surrogacy is done through in-vitro fertilization or IVF. This is when the intended mother’s egg is fertilized by the sperm of the intended father in a lab. Then the surrogate mother carries that egg. As the intended parent, if you need a donor, our team of licensed professionals can help you find the right fit.
Our agency provides gestational surrogacy because it is the safest option for everyone involved. The process protects the surrogate mother and intended parents emotionally, physically, and legally. Our team’s top priority is the well-being of the surrogate mother and her intended parents.
What is the Surrogacy Process?
Another aspect of surrogacy pregnancy that is different from a personal pregnancy is the OK surrogacy process.
