Gestational carrier cycles

A gestational carrier is a woman who carries a child for another couple. The intended parents provide the egg and sperm, and the gestational carrier provides the uterus/womb.

Gestational carrier cycles are used when patients are unable to carry a pregnancy themselves. This can be due to a number of factors, including:

  • Uterine factor infertility: This is a condition in which the uterus is unable to support a pregnancy or a patient does not have a uterus.
  • Medical conditions: Some medical conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes, can make it too risky to carry a pregnancy.
  • Psychological factors: Some patients may have a psychological condition that makes it difficult for them to carry a pregnancy.
  • Same sex male couples or single parents by choice: Gestational carriers carry the pregnancy when men build their families as a single parent or with a male partner.

Gestational carrier cycles are a successful way to achieve pregnancy for many people. The success rate of gestational carrier cycles is about 80-90% per cycle.

We work closely with gestational carrier agencies to ensure your carrier is a good fit, set up psychologic evaluations, and connect you with lawyers to ensure your parental rights.
