Learn more about the different types of Surrogacy
There are two types of surrogates, gestational and traditional. Both types of surrogacy are just as safe as traditional pregnancy but are very different.
Between the two types of surrogacy, this is the most common. A Gestational surrogacy is when a Surrogate carries a child that is not related to her in any way. The embryo is usually created through the intended mother’s egg and intended father’s sperm using in vitro fertilization or IVF. It is then transferred to the surrogate, who acts as a human incubator, carrying the parent’s baby through to birth. Sometimes the mother’s eggs or father’s sperm cannot be used. In this case, a donor’s egg or sperm is used, and this is called traditional surrogacy.
Acts as both egg donor and surrogate. Traditional Surrogates are impregnated by a process called intrauterine insemination or IUI. A doctor takes sperm from the intended father and transfers it into the uterus of the surrogate. Then after, natural fertilization of the egg takes place.

Each surrogate’s journey is unique and special. Here are some comments from our surrogate mothers describing their experience:
“In just seconds, you watch someone transform into a mom or dad when all they could do before was dream of being one. Nothing was more magical other than when I had my own children.” – Jaleesa
“Never in my life did I ever think I would be able to do something that would help someone in such a huge way. I will never forget the look on my IPs’ faces when they saw their daughter. I’m so happy to have helped them grow their family, and I am forever grateful to SPS for introducing us to the people we now call family.” – Mindy
