Surrogacy can easily be defined as the process whereby another woman carries the child of infertile couple to term. Upon birth, the child is handed over to the couple, with the gestational carrier giving up any legal rights she may have to the child. There are a variety of reasons why a couple may choose to use a surrogate carrier. Women who have absent uterus, diseased uterus or surgically removed for any other cause are advised for surrogacy. Even the women with medical diseases like heart or renal disease or uncontrolled diabetes mellitus who are unable to take the load of pregnancy can go for surrogacy.
