A gestational carrier or gestational surrogate* is a woman who carries a child conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) using the egg (ovum) of the intended parent or an egg donor, and the sperm of the intended parent or sperm donor. This is different from a traditional surrogate, who carries a child using her own egg and is the genetic and biological mother of the child. With traditional surrogacy, pregnancy is usually achieved using artificial insemination.
These are medical procedures that use increasingly sophisticated and successful advanced technologies to achieve a pregnancy through in vitro fertilization (IVF) and the transfer of embryos. This may involve third-party reproduction. Collectively these procedures are known as ART.
This is a process that includes the use of any of the following: donor sperm, donor eggs, donor embryos, traditional surrogate mothers, and gestational surrogates.
