Gestational Carrier

Why use a gestational carrier (GC)?

Intended parents may seek a GC when pregnancy is medically impossible, pregnancy risks present an unacceptable danger to the mother's health, or is a same sex couple's preferred method of procreation. Monetary compensation may or may not be involved in these arrangements. The legality and costs of surrogacy vary widely, sometimes resulting in interstate or international surrogacy arrangements. In gestational carrier situations, the pregnancy results from the transfer of an embryo created by in vitro fertilization (IVF), in a manner so the resulting child is genetically unrelated to the GC.

Choosing a Gestational Carrier

There are two ways you can go about choosing a GC.  You can use a family member or a friend who would be willing to carry your pregnancy or you can choose a GC from a reputable agency.

In choosing a GC, please consider:

  • Recommended 39 years old or younger
  • Healthy BMI
  • At least 1 delivery; preferred no more than 4
  • Healthy pregnancies and deliveries; no complications
