In gestational surrogacy, the gestational carrier gets pregnant as in any woman does through IVF. Once we have viable embryos to be placed into the GC's womb, an embryo transfer (ET) is carried out. An ET involves placing an embryo or embryos into the GC's uterus. The goal is that they are able to attach and lead to an ongoing pregnancy.
