Traditional surrogacy is a process in which a woman carries and gives birth to a baby for another couple or individual. In this type of surrogacy, the surrogate is impregnated using a process called intrauterine insemination (IUI). This is a procedure where a doctor takes sperm from the intended father and transfers it into the uterus of the surrogate.
The sperm used in the IUI process is typically collected from the intended father through masturbation. The sperm is then washed and prepared for the IUI procedure. This process is necessary to ensure that the sperm is healthy and viable for fertilization. The sperm is then placed into a catheter and inserted into the uterus of the surrogate.
Once the sperm is in the uterus, natural fertilization of the egg takes place. If the procedure is successful, the surrogate will become pregnant and carry the baby to term. After the baby is born, the intended parents will become the legal parents of the child.
Traditional surrogacy is a safe and effective way for intended parents to have a baby. It is important to note, however, that the surrogate must be carefully screened to ensure that she is physically and emotionally capable of carrying a baby to term. It is also important to have a legal agreement in place to ensure that the rights of all parties involved are respected.
