Gestational provider surrogacy
Gestational provider surrogacy is when a woman (known as a gestational carrier) turns into expecting soon after an embryo is transferred into her uterus. The embryo was produced from another woman’s eggs, and so the gestational carrier is not genetically associated to the child.


The gestational carrier surrogacy pathway is a feasible alternative for heterosexual partners, exact same-intercourse partners, and one parents unable to get pregnant or have kids of their personal.


As soon as the health care, psychological and legal factors are in place, the meant dad and mom go through ‘in-vitro fertilization‘ and the resulting embryo(s) are transferred into the carrier’s uterus. After start, the surrogate then presents the kid to the supposed mothers and fathers.


At Genesis, we pride ourselves in providing a comprehensive screening procedure, determination to safety, and total disclosure of the risks and successes of surrogacy. Supposed dad and mom call for a legal contract between themselves and the possible surrogate. This authorized contract is arranged privately. A counselling session is also necessary for the supposed mothers and fathers and the surrogate prior to starting up treatment. After these health-related, authorized and counselling components are comprehensive we can start the method.

Traditional surrogacy
Traditional surrogacy is not performed at Genesis, however for the purpose of understanding the two types of surrogacy, traditional surrogacy is when a woman (called a surrogate mother) carries and delivers a pregnancy conceived with her eggs for a couple. After the birth she gives the child to the intended parents with whom she has a contract.



Traditional surrogacy is an option for a woman who does not have functioning ovaries nor a functioning uterus. Examples of causes include:


After a after hysterectomy that includes removal of the ovaries
Previous radiation or other treatment that has damaged the uterus and ovaries


If a pregnancy is not achieved after 4-6 months of inseminations, fertility treatments like ‘IVF’ are often considered.


At Genesis, we do not perform traditional surrogacy for legal and emotional reasons. To date, the only surrogacy cases that have been challenged in court (e.g. where the surrogate is not willing to give the child to the intended parents) have been traditional surrogacy cases. Protection of the intended parents, fetus/child and the surrogate is at the heart of our program, therefore we do not engage in traditional surrogacy.


From Our Patients
The whole process start to finish was intense and emotional but the best decision I ever made. Dr. Kashyap and her staff made the process so much easier. They were always available to answer questions, if I left a message or sent an email, that same day I heard back. Not once did they seem rushed, they always took the time for me.
