Surrogacy is the process whereby a woman will aid a couple in having a baby by carrying and giving birth to the child. Surrogacy can be classified as either straight surrogacy or host surrogacy with the difference lying in who are the child’s biological parents. It is important to note that regardless of which type of surrogacy is pursued the surrogate mother terminates her parental rights upon birth. People who consider surrogacy as a means to have a child may have experienced fertility problems or are in a same-sex relationship. It may also be the case that other fertility treatments have failed to aid the couple in having their own child. It is an inherently lengthy process and all medical, legal, financial and ethical considerations will have to be properly addressed before beginning the process.
