Why do Women become Surrogates?

Surrogates in India

Surrogacy is one of the options for couples to have child while surrogates not only get compensation but they fulfil their own dreams for carrying the child to term. No one gets into the surrogate parenting business only for the money purposes. For one thing, surrogacy agencies in India won’t allow it. According to Seed Art, Delhi-based surrogacy agency, surrogacy is increasingly common for people who cannot have children on their own. That’s why surrogate mother plays an important role for intended parents to have children, genetically related to them. “I am very happy that I become a successful surrogate for a foreign couple with their sperm and eggs. I already have children and am proud another family was created because of me,” says a surrogate from rural India who was also associated with Seed ART.

No genetic relationship with Surrogate
Women who decide to become surrogates experience love being pregnant and have genuine interests to help a couple have a child. Surrogates readily come to help through agencies and using Assisted Reproductive Technology to create a family for childless couples. Many people have myths surrounding surrogacy services in India. However, in gestational surrogacy, which is more common, where the surrogate uses the intended mother’s eggs, or donor eggs, and the intended father’s sperm. With gestational surrogacy, an egg is fertilized and transferred to the surrogate mother’s uterus using IVF. In this case, the surrogate mother has no genetic link, and both intended parents can be named on the birth certificate.

Statistics on Surrogacy in India
While there are few statistics on the surrogacy industry here, India has become a hub for medical tourism because of the availability of advanced technology, the large number of medical professionals and the relatively cheap costs. A latest research estimates that around 1,000 surrogacy births occur every year in India, but there is no official record-keeping for surrogacy and the involvement of surrogates in the process.

Genetic Parents get Baby Birth Certificate
The Indian Council of Medical Research, a government body, introduced guidelines for accreditation, supervision and regulation of surrogacy and assisted-reproduction clinics in 2005. Intended Parents are the legal parents, for a baby born to a surrogate with all the rights and responsibilities. The name of the surrogate mother is not mentioned on the baby’s birth certificate. ICMR guidelines are clear about this. The birth certificate will only carry the name of the genetic parents or of the single genetic father. In most cases, the clients’ sperm and egg are implanted in the surrogate’s womb, with DNA tests done after the birth to prove the genetic links to the couple and ease the issuing of a foreign passport.

Surrogates in India only become a facilitator between agency and Intended Parents. Their role is limited to achieve pregnancy with using ART, everything else is the responsibility of agencies.
