Who Needs Surrogacy?

The Basics

If you are asking this question, then you are quite close to filling the vacuum that engulfs your life right now. In simple terms, surrogacy is opted for a when a female patient cannot carry a child to full term for medical reasons. Those who desire genetically related children but are not medically fit to deliver a baby can use the services of a surrogate.


India being a low cost destination for tertiary care treatment often sees single parents/gay or lesbian couples opting for surrogacy in India. Though, regulatory challenges are high in India for such couples and paperwork involved is high.


Surrogacy treatment is advisable for those who have had:


  • Abnormalities in the size of uterus
  • Adenomyosis
  • Blood clotting disorders
  • Chronic Diabetes mellitus
  • Damaged uterine lining
  • Genetical tuberculosis
  • Hypertension
  • Hysterectomy or uterus removal
  • Large uterine fibroids in uterus
  • Lupus
  • No uterus since birth
  • Recurrent miscarriages
  • Repeated IVF inspite of good quality embryo
  • Rokitansky Syndrome-women born without a womb


For single fathers: Even single men can choose to avail the services of surrogate mothers. Surrogacy in this case will be undertaken with the sperm of the intended father and a donor egg. The consequent certificate of birth will have the father’s name and the field requiring the mother’s name will be left blank.


For single mothers: The lady in question can be a single parent as well and can avail the help of a sperm donor who may be an acquaintance or an anonymous donor. The resulting embryo is then transferred to a surrogate. After the baby is delivered, the certificate of birth will have the mother’s name and the field requiring father’s name will be left blank.


We recommend the commissioning parents to avoid contact with the surrogate after the surrogacy procedure.
