Gestational Surrogates are individuals who carries a pregnancy for another party

The Laurel Fertility Care team has been growing dreams for over 15 years for families worldwide. Our Third-Party Treatment Coordinator specializes in assisting intended parents whose journey to parenthood includes the use of a Gestational Carrier (GC).

Gestational Carriers provide the option to those who are unable to carry a successful pregnancy the chance to grow their families.

There are two types of surrogacy: Gestational and Traditional. Gestational Surrogacy involves an individual who carries a pregnancy for another party and a gestational carrier has no genetic relation to the embryo, while a traditional surrogate provides the egg to achieve the pregnancy. Gestational surrogacy is offered as a service at Laurel Fertility Care.

The use of Gestational Carrier is a viable treatment option if:

You have had a hysterectomy

You cannot carry a pregnancy due to health issues

Your health would be at risk if a pregnancy was carried

You have experienced recurrent pregnancy loss

You are part of a heterosexual couple in need of a carrier
