The not so old concept of Surrogacy Options has come about in the last few decades and there has been a major upheaval in its acceptance by the common couples of all societies. It might be surprising to the majority, however even in today’s advanced and accessible state of options the word surrogate itself comes with an eye-raising effect on the majority of couples. As a consequence, even those who suffer from the problem of being childless and along with it the associated discrimination within the society, are still reluctant to go ahead with surrogacy. To a certain extent illiteracy can be blamed as the major reason for the ignorance; however couples do still harbor a host of preconceived notions about the practice that resists them from taking its full advantage.

Surrogacy Options in Indiahttp://www.delhi-ivf.comThe not so old concept of Surrogacy Options has come about in the last few decades and therehas been a major upheaval in its acceptance by the common couples of all societies. It might besurprising to the majority, however even in today’s advanced and accessible state of optionsthe word surrogate itself comes with an eye-raising effect on the majority of couples. As aconsequence, even those who suffer from the problem of being childless and along with it theassociated discrimination within the society, are still reluctant to go ahead with surrogacy. To acertain extent illiteracy can be blamed as the major reason for the ignorance; however couplesdo still harbor a host of preconceived notions about the practice that resists them from takingits full advantage.In an increasingly open minded approach there is no dearth of ‘fertile mothers’ who are wellcontacted by the hospitals and healthcare organizations providing such services. As the socialawareness for such kind of Surrogacy Options is on the rise, women are increasingly interestedin providing their invaluable time and effort as a social cause. In advanced western societies, itis quite a norm to take the services of any interested surrogacy option for the entire tenure as aprofessional help. More than anything, the ‘other mother’ is also as interested and involvedwith the process where monetary compensation is secondary. The foremost need is that ofhelping a couple and understanding their predicament of going childless.Most women, who have volunteered for such an important role that is more centered to otherpeople most of whom are not even known to the concerned surrogate option, confess that theydo it more out of a feeling of being able to help. This is a genuine feeling of empathy towardsany fellow couple that may be going childless for a vast number of reasons. But to make thevarious Surrogacy Options possible for them and bring it to their homes is what makes all thedifference.The cause of Surrogacy Options available in the market today has already gone greatmetamorphosis within less than 50 years since its origin. Over these years, the process hasdefinitely become more convenient and organized. However a sense of chance and skepticismthat often adjoins these cases is something that can easily be done away with. After all bothstatistics and practical experience proves that they are as reassuring as the natural way toprocreate.In India, surrogacy as a medical process has matured to the point where some clinics specializein surrogacy (which generally means they have IVF-egg transfer facilities, help identifysurrogates, and assist in the legal/contractual process), generally giving them more experience

Unfortunately, for many couples surrogacy is not an option because ofexorbitant costs or legal barriers. In the UK, for example, a surrogate cannot be compensatedfor services, causing fewer available surrogates. The law also favors the surrogate in terms ofher choice to keep or relinquish the child at the end of the pregnancy. Couples in the US facesimilar barriers in terms of legal issues along with high costs for fertility treatments. Medicaltourism can provide a way around these barriers.When considering surrogacy abroad it is important to know what options are available. Thereare two types of surrogacy procedures that each aspiring surrogate, couple or individual mustknow about before approaching a medical tourism provider.
