Surrogacy offers the possibility of the child's birth, gestation outside the body of which the genetic mother.This method - a real salvation for those who for various reasons are not able to self-nurturing, or has serious contraindications to it.
Unfortunately, this situation often leads various gynecological diseases or their complications.Thus, by virtue of tumor pathology surgery to remove the uterus Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) - a terrible need sometimes becomes inevitable.Infertility Causes - heredity and lifestyle can cause inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries.In addition, the absence of the uterus can be innate.Almost to the same disastrous consequences and causes severe pathology of the cardiovascular system, asthma renal and liver failure.And if earlier it was possible to remedy the situation only by means of adoption, today, patients may choose to program in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogate motherhood.

Where to find a surrogate mother and how to account for all possible situations?Among the candidates for surrogacy is the ideal next of kin.If this method is not suitable, you can choose to search either in their own city (not exactly an ideal way due to the difficulty to maintain confidentiality), or in other cities or even countries.A good option allows you to search through the Internet.But in any case, you must first become familiar with the legal framework governing all aspects of this complex issue and the opportunity to consult with experts.
