Medical Conditions for Surrogates
There are some women who would benefit from gestational care. Carol Wheeler M.D., a fertility doctor at the Women& Infants Center for Reproduction and Infertility discusses the medical conditions that would necessitate using a surrogate. The largest group of women, are those who have not been able to get pregnant and it's believed that the uterus is the cause. Also, women who lack a uterus or have a medical condition that would make it unsafe for them to carry a pregnancy would make good candidates for gestational care.
