Surrogacy is basically a type of pregnancy where a woman carries the baby of another woman who is unable to get pregnant. This can be due to several reasons such as age, fertility issues, etc. According to the data, recently many people are considering this process of experiencing parenthood.
Let's talk about how does it work? So, this process involves fertilizing the egg of a woman with the sperm of a sperm donor through laboratory or medical procedures to help form an embryo. The doctors then implant this fertilised egg in the uterus of the surrogate mother, who then carries the embryo for the next 9 months and then gives birth to the baby.
Surrogacy is a process wherein a woman legally says yes to bear a child for another person or people, who will become the child's parent after birth. It is a blessing for all those who don't want to get pregnant in order to have a child. Here are some of the famous Bollywood actors who opted for surrogacy.
