Although traditional surrogacy goes back hundreds of years and is classified as an ancient act of love, it is more common that women choose gestational surrogacy. With the expertise of in vitro fertilization, gestational surrogacy is in full bloom and is known to bring many successful pregnancies around the world. Gestational surrogacy is achieved when a woman carries and nourishes a baby in her womb, with no genetic connection to her; at birth the surrogate places the baby in the intended parents' arms for their parenting journey to begin.
