Gestational surrogacy in India is one of the most in-demand services by international tourists.
But how is it different from traditional surrogacy? Traditional surrogacy is when the surrogate mother’s egg is fertilized using the male parent’s sperm through IVF. Gestational surrogacy means that an embryo is formed from the in-vitro fertilization of an egg by a sperm, and then the embryo is implanted into the Indian surrogate’s uterus where the baby is carried throughout the pregnancy.
Traditional Surrogacy (also known as Natural Surrogacy) is legally not allowed in many countries, including India.
- The baby born from traditional surrogacy is g enetically linked to the surrogate mother.
- In gestational surrogacy baby’s genes are not linked to the surrogate mother’s genes.

Weighing the pros and cons of going to India for surrogacy, the positive points easily outweigh the negative ones. To achieve this level of understanding, it is advised for clients to constantly communicate with the surrogacy clinic even before the process starts regarding all their concerns and questions.
Perhaps one of the most important things to discuss is the surrogacy contract that is signed before starting the process, as related to Indian surrogacy laws. Individuals and couples, who want to opt for gestational surrogacy in India, must be very comfortable with the doctor and other medical staff they have to work with.
