A surrogate carries a pregnancy and delivers a child created from the egg and sperm of the intended parents. A donor egg, donor sperm, or donated embryos may also be used. An important distinction in this type of surrogacy is that the gestational surrogate is not genetically related to the child and acts only as a gestation carrier for the pregnancy.
