Who is a surrogate mother?
A Surrogate Mother is one who gets implanted with a fertilized egg from another woman by artificial insemination or surgical implantation of a fertilized egg. There are also cases where the surrogate mother helps couple by donating her own egg or being inseminated with the man's sperm and either donating the embryo for transfer to the woman's uterus or carrying it to term.
There are two types of surrogate mother:
- Gestational surrogate mother
- Traditional surrogate mother
