Surrogate Pregnancy Q & A

What is surrogate pregnancy?

CARE Fertility offers surrogate pregnancy through gestational carriers to help many couples struggling with infertility conceive a healthy baby. 

This type of fertility treatment implants a fertilized egg into the uterus of a healthy carrier, where the baby of another couple grows and develops until delivery. After delivery, the parents receive their new baby.

Is surrogate pregnancy right for me?

If you aren’t able to sustain a pregnancy due to medical problems or other reasons, surrogate pregnancy may be for you. Some women simply don’t want to carry a baby themselves, but still desire to expand their families. 

Gay couples also use surrogate pregnancy to have children. A gestational carrier doesn’t usually have a genetic link to their baby.

Your CARE Fertility provider reviews the costs involved in surrogate pregnancy so you know exactly what to expect.

What are the requirements for gestational carriers?

To be considered as a gestational carrier through CARE Fertility, candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • Under age 38
  • Non-smoker
  • Unremarkable medical history
  • Average body weight
  • Previous delivery of a term baby
  • No history of pregnancy complications

CARE Fertility offers tests to determine the suitability of each gestational carrier. As well, the skilled providers complete a comprehensive physical exam for potential candidates.


The CARE Fertility team provides a transvaginal pelvic ultrasound, a hysteroscopy to thoroughly evaluate the interior of the uterus (where the baby grows), and a hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to obtain information about the configuration of fallopian tubes and the inside of a carrier’s uterus

What should I expect during surrogate pregnancy?

After a gestational carrier is selected, a CARE Fertility provider obtains a fertilized egg (embryo) and implants it into the uterus of the carrier, where it grows and develops into a baby. The gestational carrier and the baby’s parents communicate with each other regularly during the course of the pregnancy.

When it’s time to deliver the baby vaginally or via cesarean section (C-section), the baby’s parents are often present, help care for the baby while in the hospital, and take the baby home after the release from the hospital.
