The joy of maternity and paternity is the highest manifestation of happiness, and AIST USA wants that each couple should have this happy moment. Alas, the birth of a child is not available to all couples, because, in the first place, it is a matter of physical health of a man and a woman. Even such a successful IVF procedure, which we already told you about, can be contraindicated based on health indications. And then surrogate maternity comes to the aid of a loving married couple.
In case of surrogate maternity, the embryo, which is obtained as a result of fertilization of the egg of the genetic mother with the sperm of the genetic father, is transferred to the surrogate mother’s body.
Available types of surrogate maternity:
- Complete (when the husband’s spermatozoon and the egg of his wife are implanted in the body of the surrogate mother)
- Partial (when the surrogate mother’s eggs are used)
The indications for surrogate maternity include the following cases:
Women without an uterus due to a birth defect or surgical removal
Women who have suffered many miscarriages or have passed many IVF with an unsuccessful result
Women with certain medical diagnoses, in which pregnancy is life-threatening
