Six Surrogacy Benefits By Michael Vermesh on September 15, 2017

In such cases, surrogacy provides couples a viable opportunity for completing their families. During surrogacy, an egg and sperm are combined as part of in vitro fertilization. Once the embryos are ready, they will be transferred into a gestational carrier, also known as a surrogate.

Dr. Michael Vermesh at The Center for Fertility and Gynecology in Los Angeles, CA works closely with the couple and surrogate. The intended parents enter into a signed contract with the surrogate and are able to be a part of the entire process, just as if they were carrying and delivering the child themselves. Upon delivery, the baby is placed into the hands of the parents. If you are considering this option for your family’s future, below are six surrogacy benefits to help you in making your decision.

Surrogacy Helps Couples Start a Family

Surrogacy provides infertile women unable to conceive the opportunity to become parents who may not otherwise be able to accomplish this dream. It is also beneficial for women who have medical conditions that make it unsafe for pregnancy. With egg and sperm donation now readily available, surrogacy also provides single women or LGBT couples the chance to start a family.

Surrogacy Helps Couples Maintain Biological Connections

Couples who desire to carry on their family’s genetics and maintain a biological connection with their children can successfully do so through surrogacy.

Surrogacy Has a High Success Rate

Women who are surrogates have successfully conceived and delivered children of their own. Before the procedure is completed, the woman will undergo extensive testing to make sure she and her uterus are healthy. This allows intended parents choosing surrogacy a higher success rate than if they were to undergo fertility treatments on their own.

Surrogacy Provides Peace of Mind

Prior to the embryo transfer, the surrogate and couple enter into a signed and legally binding contract that protects both parties. This contract will outline expectations for both parties to eliminate any surprises and provide peace of mind throughout the entire process.

Surrogacy Creates a Strong Bond

Intended parents often form a strong bond with the surrogate, developing lifelong relationships. Having this strong bond in place also makes it much easier to do surrogacy again in the future for parents who desire to expand their family.

Surrogacy Allows Parents to Be Involved

Because of the legally binding contract set in place, intended parents are able to attend doctor’s appointments and the delivery, allowing them the opportunity to feel involved throughout the entire pregnancy. Surrogacy also provides intended parents more control over their future family than if they were to seek adoption or undergo fertility treatment.
