Use of Gestational Carriers
A Gestational Carrier is a woman that will carry and deliver a child for another couple or person.
For the gestational carrier to become pregnant, an embryo (or embryos) is placed into her uterus. These embryos result from IVF treatment, in which eggs and semen are combined. The eggs can be from the patient or an egg donor, but are not from the gestational carrier herself. This assures that the gestational carrier has no genetic tie to the child.
ACRM is partnered with several agencies that can help you find a gestational carrier and work through the legal contract required. We also provide any medical procedures associated with the use of a gestational carrier, such as screening, in vitro fertilization, and embryo transfer.
