Surrogate Mothers (Gestational Carriers) are women that carry an embryo (or donor embryo) to term and then legally relinquish any and all parental rights.
Possible Side Effects:
– Emotions related to not having control over the surrogate mother.
Fear that the surrogate mother may not fully relinquish parental rights.
– In the US it can range from $15,000 to $50,000 (with about $10,000 going to the surrogate mother and additional large amounts going to legal fees).
Rate of Success (Conception):
– Depends on the procedure used and the surrogate mother.
