Why do people use surrogate mothers?

Now days, with the help of strong women outside a couple, many parents are able to have the child they have always dreamed of.

Using surrogate mothers, either one or both of the future parents are able to be the biological parents of the child without carrying it for nine months.

These future parents must be economically and emotionally capable of carrying out the entire process which the chosen woman gestates and gives birth to the baby.

In this article we’ll provide some of the reasons why a couple or a single person takes this decision.

Infertility

This occurs when the ovum cannot be properly fertilized by a sperm.

Some of the causes of infertility can include obesity, low sperm content in semen (or poor quality of them), sexually transmitted infections, tumors in the uterus and premature menopause.

 

Involuntary Abortion

Women often lose a baby because they were born prematurely.

These women often are the ones that prefer to go to the egg donor agencies to rent bellies and avoid despair during pregnancy that involves thinking about the possible loss of the fetus.

Age

Some women, who have reached an age with higher gestational risk, such as in their mid-thirties and beyond, opt for surrogacy.

Pregnancy and the child’s health become a higher risk at this stage of their lives. They may also have difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term.

Same Sex Couples

Some gay and lesbian couples seek to rent bellies to fulfill their desire to have a baby on their own.

In this way, at least one of the future parents can have a biological connection with the child, providing the ovum or semen.

Single Parents or Mothers

In this case, people who have not found or have not wanted to form a conventional family can turn to a surrogate mother to have a biological child.

The rent of mothers or bellies can have different variants

The surrogate mothers can also be the donor of the ovule and can be inseminated with genetic material from the father or from a donor.

In this case the fertilization takes place inside the fallopian tubes of the mother and would be an insemination.

It can also be subjected to an implantation of the already fertilized ovum (embryo) whose genetic material can come from the two future parents, or from one of the future parents and from a donor. In this case the fertilized embryo “in vitro” is implanted.
