Surrogacy Traditional vs Gestational

Surrogacy Traditional vs Gestational

Traditional Surrogacy and Gestational Surrogacy are two unparalleled versions of the surrogacy. Wondering WHY?

(1) Traditional Surrogacy Dimension

Let’s Glance “INSIDE” the Traditional Surrogacy Dimension 

Traditional Surrogacy is also termed as “partial surrogacy” or “genetic surrogacy” because the Surrogate Mother has the genetic link to the tiny one or tiny ones she carries. The genetic “blueprint” of the Surrogate Mother may complicate the Traditional Surrogacy both emotionally and legally but this version of the surrogacy is designed for single men, same–sex male couples, and intended mothers who cannot produce healthy oocytes. 

How can they create the tiny embryo if the Traditional Surrogacy is chosen? 

For the Traditional Surrogacy the tiny sparkling embryos may be created through intrauterine insemination (IUI) to artificially inseminate the surrogate mother using the intended father’s sperm or through in vitro insemination (IVF) to design the tiny sparkling embryos in the laboratory in two ways: standard insemination or insemination through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Intrauterine insemination is the most natural option designed by the specialist to achieve pregnancy. The tiny Embryo is designed as the blend of the Surrogate Mother’s oocyte and intended father’s spermatozoon. 

Wondering what is an ‘EMBRYO’? Here you GO… The assembly of a new life first depends on the union between a spermatozoon and an oocyte culminating in fertilization. If the fertilization occurs, the EMBRYO APPEARS. Fertilization is a mysterious phenomenon that turns two cells into a tiny embryo–dude or a tiny  embryo–lady, or if two oocytes are fertilized than…two tiny embryo–dudes! Or two tiny embryo–ladies! Or if three oocytes are fertilized than three tiny embryo–babies: two tiny Handsome Embryo–Dudes and one Tiny Sparkling Embryo–Lady! The Miracles Start Here… The Tiny Sparkles are here… Many versions can be inserted here…

How Does the Embryo Appear in a Natural Way?

Wondering how does Fertilization happen? Usually, a spermatozoon and an oocyte ‘meet’ in one of the two Fallopian tubes that connect the ovaries to the womb (uterus). Wondering how does the embryo–baby normally ‘appears’ and implants in the uterus? The tiny embryo–dude or the tiny embryo–lady (fertilized oocyte) then moves down the Fallopian tube by being wafted by fine hairs inside the tubes until it reaches the womb (uterus) two, three or four days later. Once there, this tiny embryo–bundle wonders where it should cuddle up itself in this new place. And it implants, attaching itself to the womb lining and that is where it usually continues to grow and develop.

The ability of the Fallopian tube to transfer the early embryo into the uterus is an excessive modality for a successful pregnancy. Apparently, structural abnormalities and functional abnormalities of the Fallopian tube will interfere with the embryo transfer process that can lead to tubal pregnancy.

In Vitro Fertilization for the Traditional Surrogacy. How Does the Embryo Appear in Case if it is IVF Treatment Cycle? 

In Vitro Fertilization Treatment Cycle is designed to create the Tiny Sparkling Embryos in the laboratory and after that to transfer them to the mother’s uterus. In other words, FERTILIZATION [or EMBRYO ‘CREATION’] happens in the laboratory.


The Embryos That Are Made Exclusively (DESIGNED) For You

Fertilization (making the embryos from your oocytes and your husband’s sperm) is possible even in difficult cases. Not always the standard insemination can be used for the oocyte fertilization.

Embryologists will ‘design’ half–authentic your tiny sparkling embryo–ladies and handsome embryo–dudes in the laboratory. Half–authentic as their Genetic Code will be designed from the Surrogate Mother’s Genetic Code and from intended father’s genetic code.

They will take the retrieved oocytes of the Surrogate Mother and toss them in a Petri dish with the intended father’s sperm and let them do their Mysterious Thing [YAY!]... Another option is called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), where the Embryologists manually fertilize the oocytes with the sperm individually, but it is for extreme cases only. The ICSI procedure is done with the aid of a microscope and fine instruments, one single, boutique–quality spermatozoon is taken and injected directly into every Surrogate Mother’s mature oocyte.

Indications for ICSI include such cases as the previous semen analysis demonstrating significant abnormalities, in situations where surgical aspiration of sperm from the vas deferens or testicle, or a previous IVF cycle with poor fertilization. You will know the next morning how many of the Surrogate Mother’s oocytes have been fertilized correctly. After that, you will be waiting three long days or…more.

The embryologist will tell you how many embryos Fair, Good, and Excellent quality are. Can you imagine that? Those ones glittering gorgeous tiny embryo–ladies and handsome embryo–dudes were designed especially for you. All of them are perfect. And all of them are anticipating the time when they will be transferred!

The Actual Embryo Transfer seems that the sparkling tiny ones are Launched!

The Actual Embryo Transfer Occurs in This Way…The Miracle for Your Tiny Sparkling Embryo (or More Than One Tiny Sparkle…) Starts from being taken out from the Petri Dish and Placed in the Private, Premium–Level “Shuttle” (Catheter)! Three, two, one… GO! Imagine! Drive Through! Launch!

The embryo will appear inside Surrogate Mother’s uterus via a tiny catheter. Your tiny scared embryo–lady or embryo–dude is taken out of the Petri–dish and waits for a ‘BIG TRANSFER’. If it is the time to replace this small embryo–bundle from the tube inside Surrogate Mother’s uterus, it is placed inside a flexible catheter. The procedure of Embryo Transfer takes only several minutes. It takes all of three minutes to insert a weird kind of catheter, get it to where it needs to be, accurately place your little embryo inside your uterus, and that is all. YES, and it has to ‘LEARN’ so many things inside. It wonders: ‘Where am I?’ ‘What has happened?’ ‘Everything is pulsating around me…’ ‘Should I curl up here or there?’ ‘Oh, it is better on the left side?’ ‘I am scared. I will just cuddle up to that warm place and sleep there.’

Are There the Miracles to Happen After That? Yes, Be Sure!

If you can see those tiny heartbeats on the ultrasound screen, your tiny embryo or fetus is alive! You will go through many things before this UNIQUE MOMENT. They will perform the first external ultrasound to determine how does your little one spend its time inside Surrogate Mother. It’ll be terrifying, but you will keep your focus on the black and white screen by your side. And if you can see those tiny heartbeats (that glittering red spot or several spots) on the ultrasound screen, your tiny embryo or fetus is with you, inside Surrogate Mother. Amused? Just curl a smile!

What Happens After this Mysterious Heartbeat Visualization? 

From this moment, the Surrogate Mother will carry the tiny one as if it were any other pregnancy. When your Tiny Bundle is born, the Surrogate Mother will be the biological mother and will have the parental rights. Therefore, the newborn bundle should be legally adopted by the intended parents.


Traditional Surrogacy Laws

Most of the laws are so complicated. You are trying to understand them but there are so many nuances hidden behind every sentence, every word, and even every letter! It turns you into the bundle of nerves because of the embarrassing interpretations. They may interpret one law in so many versions! Or even blend one law with the other. No one will understand completely what is going on except attorneys! Lack of transparency and inclusiveness in the law may lead to misinterpretation and the adverse consequences in the future. And we all know about that.

Surrogacy laws can be extremely confusing — especially because not every country has transparent laws regulating surrogacy. Not every country has the surrogacy laws that don’t have dual interpretations. And not every country has completely formulated and inclusively represented surrogacy laws that “shape” the legal surrogacy process for both parties (for intended parent/parents and surrogate mothers).

Traditional Surrogacy involves additional legal complications and processes, such as termination of maternal parental rights (as the Surrogate mother is the baby’s mother) and step–parent adoption of the baby by the intended parent/parents. For these reasons, it is very important to consult with an excessively experienced attorney in Surrogacy Dimension through every stage of the traditional surrogacy process.

Traditional Surrogacy and Gestational Surrogacy are regulated by the country/state laws. In some countries/states surrogacy is not legal at all. Traditional surrogacy may be illegal even in some countries/states where gestational surrogacy is legal. In this case, it is possible to choose the donor oocyte and make the surrogacy gestational as the Surrogate Mother will be not the mother for the baby she carries. The Surrogate Mother will be the Gestational carrier for the tiny bundle she carries because the genetic content will be yours and the oocyte–donor’s. There won’t be the genetic link between your baby and Surrogate Mother.

(2) Gestational Surrogacy Dimension

Let’s Glance “INSIDE” the Gestational Surrogacy Dimension 

Gestational Surrogacy is the most favorable and preferable type of surrogacy nowadays. Gestational Surrogate Mother sometimes is called as “Gestational Carrier” because the Surrogate Mother doesn’t have the genetic link to the tiny one or tiny ones she carries. The baby has the genetic “blueprint” of the intended parents (intended mother’s and intended father’s) or intended parent and donor’s (intended mother’s and sperm donor’s; oocyte donor’s and intended father’s or oocyte donor’s and sperm donor’s).

Gestational Surrogacy is designed for couples:

(1) intended mothers who can produce healthy oocytes and intended fathers who can produce healthy sperm),

(2) for couples who would like to use the donor’s oocyte and intended father’s sperm or,

(3) for couples when the intended mother cannot carry the pregnancy but may produce the healthy oocytes and the father cannot produce healthy sperm, therefore, the sperm donor is needed),

(4) for the couples who cannot produce healthy oocytes and sperm but do want to have the tiny one or ones (both donors are needed: donor oocyte and donor sperm).

For the same sex–couples: 

(5) “Two–Mommies Program”, when it is impossible to carry a pregnancy but the intended mothers can produce healthy oocytes, the sperm donor is also needed;

(6) “Two–Mommies Program”, when it is impossible to carry a pregnancy and the intended mothers cannot produce healthy oocytes, both oocyte donor and sperm donor is needed;

(7) “Two–Daddies Program”, when the intended fathers can produce the healthy sperm, but Traditional Surrogacy is forbidden by the law, therefore, oocyte donor is needed and the Surrogate Mother will carry the baby without a genetic link, though won’t have the parental rights;

(8) “Two–Daddies Program”, when the intended fathers cannot produce healthy sperm, and Traditional Surrogacy is forbidden by the law, therefore, sperm donor and oocyte donor are needed. The Surrogate Mother will carry the baby without a genetic link, though won’t have the parental rights.

For single parents: 

(9) “One Mommy Program”, when it is impossible to carry a pregnancy but the intended mothers can produce healthy oocytes, the sperm donor is also needed;

(10) “One Mommy Program”, when it is impossible to carry a pregnancy and the intended mothers cannot produce healthy oocytes, both oocyte donor and sperm donor is needed;

(11) “One Daddy Program”, when the intended fathers cannot produce healthy sperm, and Traditional Surrogacy is forbidden by the law, therefore, sperm donor and oocyte donor are needed. The Surrogate Mother will carry the baby without a genetic link, though won’t have the parental rights.

(12) “One Daddy Program”, when the intended fathers cannot produce healthy sperm, and Traditional Surrogacy is forbidden by the law, therefore, sperm donor and oocyte donor are needed. The Surrogate Mother will carry the baby without a genetic link, though won’t have the parental rights.

How can they create the tiny embryo if the Gestational Surrogacy is chosen? 

The tiny Embryo will be designed as the blend of the Intended Mother’s oocyte/donor’s oocyte and intended father’s spermatozoon/donor’s spermatozoon. The Surrogate Mother won’t have the genetic link with the tiny one. She will only carry the small bundle and will give a birth to the tiny one or tiny ones.

For the Gestational Surrogacy the tiny sparkling embryos may be created through in vitro insemination (IVF) to artificially inseminate the intended mother’s oocytes using (1) the intended father’s sperm or (2) the donor’s sperm, or (3) using the donor’s oocytes and the intended father’s sperm, or (4) using the donor’s oocytes and the donor’s sperm.

To design the tiny sparkling embryos in the laboratory they will use two strategies: standard insemination or insemination through intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

In Vitro Fertilization for the Traditional Surrogacy. How Does the Embryo Appear in Case if it is IVF Treatment Cycle? 

In Vitro Fertilization Treatment Cycle is designed to create the Tiny Sparkling Embryos in the laboratory and after that to transfer them to the mother’s uterus. In other words, FERTILIZATION [or EMBRYO ‘CREATION’] happens in the laboratory.

The Tiny Perfect Embryos Are Made Exclusively [‘DESIGNED’] For You

Fertilization (making the embryos from your oocytes and your husband’s sperm) is possible even in difficult cases. Not always the standard insemination can be used for the oocyte fertilization.

Embryologists will ‘design’ absolutely–authentic your tiny sparkling embryo–ladies and handsome embryo–dudes in the laboratory. Absolutely authentic as their Genetic Code will be designed from the Intended Mother’s/donor oocyte Genetic Code and from intended father’s/donor sperm genetic code. The Surrogate Mother won’t have the genetic link with the tiny one. She will only carry the small bundle and will give a birth to the tiny one or tiny ones.

If you are Intended Mother, they will take your retrieved oocytes and toss them in a Petri dish with the intended father’s sperm and let them do their Mysterious Thing [YAY!]... If you cannot produce the oocytes, they will take the donor’s oocytes and the intended father’s sperm and let them do their Mysterious Thing [YAY!]... If your husband cannot produce the healthy sperm, they will take your retrieved oocytes and toss them in a Petri dish with the donor’s sperm and let them do their Mysterious Thing [YAY!]... If there is a serious complication and you both do want to have a tiny one, they can take both donor’s oocytes and donor’s sperm, toss them in a Petri dish with the intended father’s sperm and let them do their Mysterious Thing [YAY!]...

Another option is called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), where the Embryologists manually fertilize the oocytes with the sperm individually, but it is for extreme cases only. The ICSI procedure is done with the aid of a microscope and fine instruments, one single, boutique–quality spermatozoon is taken and injected directly into every mature oocyte.

From this moment, the Surrogate Mother will carry the tiny one as if it were any other pregnancy. When your Tiny Bundle is born, the Surrogate Mother WON’T BE the biological mother and WON’T have the parental rights. Therefore, the newborn bundle shouldn’t be legally adopted by the intended parents. The newborn bundle will be yours! No one else’s!

Gestational Surrogacy Laws

While surrogacy law can be extremely complicated, the legal process for Gestational Surrogacy is often less complex than for Traditional Surrogacy. In Gestational Surrogacy, at least one parent is usually genetically related to the baby, simplifying custody issues.
