Our goal at CT Fertility is to make it as easy as possible for our patients to realize their dream of having a baby. As one of the nation’s leading infertility treatment practices, CT Fertility works with individuals using egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation, or surrogacy (gestational carrier) to build their family. As our patient, you’ll have access to our unique in-house egg donor program, with dozens of prescreened donor candidates exclusively for our patients. Our team of experts will walk you through the complexities of the donor and surrogacy treatment process from start to finish to ensure every detail is managed efficiently and with ease.
Using a Surrogate or Gestational Carrier
The woman who carries the baby is the gestational surrogate or gestational carrier. The parents-to-be are known as the “intended parents” and are involved in the pregnancy, are present at the birth, and become the child’s parents after the baby is born.
A surrogate mother is a woman who agrees to carry someone else’s baby. She becomes pregnant using some form of assisted reproductive technology, frequently IVF. The surrogate mother carries the baby to term, gives birth, and the baby is released from the hospital to the intended parents.
CT Fertility offers you comprehensive guidance and services for your surrogacy (gestational carrier) treatment. Surrogates are always known candidates. You may already have a surrogate (gestational carrier) in mind that you’d like to use for your treatment, or you can choose one with the help of a surrogacy agency. Our team of Connecticut and Manhattan infertility experts offer emotional, psychological, and financial counseling for your surrogacy treatment. We will provide you with thoughtful guidance and compassionate support throughout your journey to becoming a parent.
