Shared Conception provides the opportunity for infertile couples and individuals to become a family via their genetics and/or any combination of egg or sperm donor.
Couples consider surrogacy when the woman has the following issues.
- Born without a uterus or has had her uterus removed for medical reasons.
- Several failed IVF transfers.
- Multiple miscarriages or has been diagnosed as not being able to carry a pregnancy to term.
Two Types of Surrogacy Arrangements
Traditional Surrogacy – In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother’s eggs are used. Due to the obvious legal and emotional aspects of traditional surrogacy, Shared Conception does not assist with traditional surrogacy arrangements.
Gestational Surrogacy – In gestational surrogacy, the surrogate carries a child conceived from the egg and sperm of two other individuals – the sperm of the intended father or sperm donor, and the egg from the intended Mother or an egg donor. The sperm and the egg are then fertilized and transferred, via in vitro fertilization, into the surrogate. The eggs of the surrogate mother are never used. The surrogate mother, as a result, has no biological ties to the child. Shared Conception only assists with gestational surrogacy arrangements.
Thank you for giving Shared Conception the opportunity to help you fulfill your very personal of dreams–having a baby. We commit to providing you with exceptional professionalism and compassion through our surrogacy program. First, we match you with the right surrogate mother to carry your little one and then we guide you directly to parenthood! This is one of the happiest times of your life and we sincerely hope that you savor it and enjoy every moment!
