Surrogacy and Baby Geneticsadmin
Babies born with this method carry the genetics of their mother and father. That is to say that they are the biological mother and father of the baby.
Therefore, the baby will look like his/her mother and father genetically, not like his/her surrogate mother. Such questions over genetics rank among the most common misconceptions of surrogacy and won’t be something that you need to worry over.
This child will be your own in every way.
There are many reasons when surrogacy will be considered. Some of the most common options include:
- Women who do not have a uterus by birth.
- Women who have their uterus removed as a requirement of a surgery (tumors, myomas, cancer etc.).
- To prevent repeated miscarriages.
- Women with Asherman’s syndrome (with a uterus but not suitable for pregnancy).
- In cases where pregnancy and birth pose a risk (women who have serious problems related to the heart and lungs, women with clotting disorders which can pose fatal risks).
- Women with natal anomalies.
