THIS SURVEY IS ONLY DEALING WITH A SURROGATE THAT HAS NO BLOOD TIE TO THE CHILD.
Surrogacy is illegal in most European countries, so many couples travel to Asia to avail of this service.

Gestational surrogacy (also known as host or full surrogacy) takes place when an embryo created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology is implanted in a surrogate, sometimes called a gestational carrier.

The embryo is created using the intended father's sperm and the intended mother's eggs. The resulting child is genetically related to both intended parents.
