Can a gay couple in India go for surrogacy? If yes then how?

Surrogacy in India at Select IVF India for gay couples can be possible but they have to sign some legal agreements before they proceed with surrogacy procedure so that the fertility experts can run the process smooth and hassle-free.

The agreement which needs to be signed by gay couple and surrogate says that surrogate will carry the baby in her womb for nine months and hand-over the baby to gay couples. The gay couples are ready to bear all the expenses and surrogate mother charges until the baby deliver and also they have to take permission from the court to be a legal parent of the baby born. The court will order the Department of Vital Statistics to issue the birth certificate in the name of intended parents and surrogate has left no relationship with the baby born.

In India, the legal laws are strictly followed for the surrogacy procedure, especially for the international and same-sex couples because there are cases where the couples reject to accept the baby born through surrogacy if the child born with any disease or for some other arbitrary reason. This cause a massive outage for the surrogacy agencies and the government in India made legal restrictions for the international and same-sex couples.

Types of Surrogacy Procedures for Gay couples

The following are the types of surrogacy procedures available at Select IVF India:

a)    Traditional Surrogacy: In traditional surrogacy, the eggs of surrogate mother will be artificially inseminated with the sperm of one of the gay couple to facilitate fertilization. Once the fertilization takes place the resulted embryo will be transferred into the uterus of surrogate mother and she will carry the baby until the delivery.

b)    Independent Surrogacy: Most of the couples prefer to undergo for the independent surrogacy procedure as in this procedure the couples will bring their own surrogate mother which makes their treatment less expensive than traditional surrogacy.

How international or same-sex couples opt for surrogacy in India?

The couples from outside India or same-sex couples who are looking to have surrogacy in India for this we at Select IVF India ask them to identify some local guardian in India to take care of the surrogate mother during her pregnancy period as well as after her delivery, till the baby is handed over to the intended parents. However, the gay couple or international parents fail to take delivery of the baby born through surrogacy procedure within one month of the baby born. In such condition, the surrogate mother or the local guardian will be legally obliged to take the baby to their home or they can hand-over to an adoption agency.

To avoid such conditions we at Select IVF India ask both the parties to sign the mutual concern so that there the couples will have their baby and the surrogate mother will get her compensation for the services she provided to the couples.
