Preparing for Surrogacy
Once the intended parent has decided to commit to surrogacy, they must then determine the goals and needs of the surrogacy and the type of surrogacy professional they want to work with.
Gestational Surrogacy – Indian surrogacy laws only allow gestational surrogacy. In gestational surrogacy, the child is not biologically related to the surrogate mother. The embryo is instead created using an egg from the intended mother or a donor and sperm from the intended father or a donor using in vitro fertilization. Once the egg is fertilized in the laboratory, the embryo is transferred to the surrogate mother.
The new surrogacy laws in India state that any woman who is willing to be a surrogate mother without taking any financial compensation can help you complete your family. However you need to buy insurance for the surrogate mother for 3 years.

Legal Process (According to Surrogacy Regulation Act 2021)
The Surrogacy (Regulation) Act 2021 states the following criteria for a couple to be eligible for surrogacy in India –
- Should be of Indian origin (OCI and NRI also included)
- Should be married for more than 5 years
- Should not have a living biological child (couple will be considered eligible if their living biological child has a life threatening disease or a physical diability)
- Should have gone through various failed IVF cycles
- Should have a proven medical indication due to which the female partner cannot carry the pregnancy.
If the couple is found eligible then the application is filed in the District Medical board which after thoroughly assessing the case issues a Medical Indication Certificate
Meanwhile the couple can start with the IVF program to save some time so that the embryos are ready by the time they shortlist the surrogate and start the documentation.
The intended mother or egg donor will be given medication to help her develop-eggs and she will undergo an egg retrieval procedure. The eggs are then fertilized in the laboratory to create an embryo, which will be transferred to the surrogate. The surrogate will also receive medication for uterine stimulation before embryo transfer.
The case in then assessed by the appropriate authorities and the Eligibility Certificate and Essentiality Certificate are issued for the intended parents.
The Intended parents and surrogate mother then undergo physical and psychological fitness before the case in taken to the district court for final proceedings.
The district court after assessment of all necessary documentation and proceedings will issue Order of Parentage and Custody which can also be presented at the time of issue of birth certificate for reference.
After you get the approval, the embryo transfer will be done into the surrogate mother.
