Diversity of international surrogacy arrangements: considerations for cross-border reproductive care

Diversity of international surrogacy arrangements: considerations for cross-border reproductive care
As noted by Javda et al. in this issue of Fertility and Sterility, surrogacy is practiced in diverse ways (1). In gestational surrogacy, the woman who carries the pregnancy is solely a gestational carrier and has no genetic connection with the child. In contrast, with traditional surrogacy, a woman supplies her own eggs and also gestates the pregnancy, resulting in her and the resulting child having a genetic connection. Additionally, a surrogacy arrangement may be completely altruistic, in which the surrogate may be a friend or relative of the intended parents, or may be commercial, in which the surrogate is compensated for her services and may never meet the intended parents.
