Starting the Surrogacy Process

Dr. Carol Wheeler, at the Women& Infants Center for Reproduction and Infertility explains the surrogacy process. First, have to decide who the carrier is going to be, and whether you also need an egg donor or a sperm donor. Having a family member who is willing to carry a pregnancy is often time a very good option. Another option is to hire a carrier through an agency. Most programs request that the carrier have had a child before. Then, you need to get a contract in place, covering all the legal issues, costs, and potential risks involved.
