Gestational Surrogacy at San Diego Fertility Center

The physicians of SDFC have years of shared experience helping patients become parents through gestational surrogacy. We will help you evaluate the benefits of gestational surrogacy and provide you with information about cost, legal issues, and treatment protocols.

In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is pregnant with her own biological child, but this child will be raised by others. In gestational surrogacy, the surrogate becomes pregnant via embryo transfer with a child that is not biologically her own. The gestational surrogate may be called the gestational carrier.

Once a suitable surrogate has been identified, and the screening process is complete, the cycle can begin. Timing depends on the surrogate's menstrual cycle and any scheduling conflicts among the surrogate, intended parents, or professional staff.
