  • What are the different types of surrogacy?

    • Traditional: An individual who carries and delivers a baby for another person or couple and is biologically linked to the baby. This can also be known as a traditional surrogate. This term is often used interchangeably with "gestational carrier." 

    • Gestational: An individual who carries and delivers a baby for another person or couple and is not biologically linked to the baby. The industry standard is changing to accept gestational carrier as the proper term, replacing "surrogate" when appropriate.
