How is IVF surrogacy done?

By Andrea Rodrigo.
Last Update: 06/06/2018

Broadly speaking, from the technical viewpoint, it works like a classical IVF. First, egg retrieval; second, fertilization in the lab; third, embryo culture; and fourth, embryo transfer.

However, the difference lies in the fourth step: the resulting embryos are not transferred back to the intended mother's uterus, but to the womb of the gestational surrogate.
