Surrogacy involves a women, outside of the couple, carrying their baby in place of the mother to be.

There are two types of surrogacy: Host (gestational), is where an embryo is transferred to the surrogate mother through IVF, and Straight (traditional), where the surrogate donates one of their own eggs.
