In Surrogacy a woman carries and delivers a child for another couple or person. This woman (the surrogate mother) may be the child’s genetic mother (called traditional surrogacy), or she may be genetically unrelated to the child (called gestational surrogacy).

In a traditional surrogacy, the child may be conceived via home artificial insemination using fresh or frozen sperm or impregnated via IUI (intrauterine insemination), or ICI (intracervical insemination) performed at a health clinic.

A gestational surrogacy requires the implantation of a previously created embryo, and for this reason the process always takes place in a clinical setting.
