Understanding the Medical and Legal Aspects of Surrogacy - An Option in Infertility

Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction for people who are unable to conceive due to medical complications or other reasons. It is an agreement where a woman agrees to carry a pregnancy for a couple or a person, who will become the baby's parent after birth. Surrogacy has been a controversial issue around the world and involves a lot of complicated contracts that intended parents as well as surrogates need to abide by. We are discussing the medical and legal aspects of surrogacy with reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Aimee D. Eyvazzadeh, reproductive/fertility lawyer Greggory M Field, and Emily M Field who became a mother through surrogacy.

    Would like to learn about the cost involved in surrogacy. Does the cost for surrogacy remain same if I am able to use my own egg vs using a donor egg?
