Surrogacy is an arrangement by a fertile woman to carry the child of a heterosexual couple, a gay couple, or a single person (straight or gay). The surrogate acts as a rented womb and none of her genetics transfers to the child. PlanetHospital pioneered affordable surrogacy in India and Panama and now offers it in Mexico and Thailand as well.
Used as a form of fertility treatment in cases where either the man or woman is infertile or would prefer not to carry a child. It is also an affordable option for gays who want children.
