There are two types of surrogacy arrangements, traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy.
In a traditional surrogacy arrangement, the surrogate is impregnated with the sperm of the Intended Father, or a donor sperm, and uses her own eggs. This type of surrogacy is not common.
In a gestational surrogacy arrangement, the surrogate, also called gestational carrier, carries a child to term that is not biologically related to her. The gestational carrier is impregnated with an embryo created from the union of the Intended Mother’s egg, or an egg donor, and the Intended Father’s sperm, or a sperm donor.
