Having children may sometimes be difficult for some couples, so in a situation whereby couples are finding it difficult to have their own children, science has made it easy for them to have their own children through surrogacy.
Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction, where intended parents work with a gestational surrogate, who will carry and care for their babies until birth. In gestational surrogacy, the child is not biologically related to the surrogate mother, who is often referred to as a gestational carrier. Instead, the embryo is created via in vitro fertilization (ivf), using the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors, and is then transferred to the surrogate.
