Single Parent Surrogacy

by Admin on December 29, 2018

As egg donation and surrogacy are becoming more common options for having children, many people are choosing to become single parents on their own. The stereotype has changed – women are not the only ones raising children on their own. Nowadays, “modern” men have become more interested in having children, even if they do not have a partner. Call this a type of paternal instinct.

Single parent surrogacy has become a possible option for intended fathers who are interested in having a biological connection to their child(ren).  The surrogacy process is the same for single parents as for any other intended parents. In general, surrogacy for a single man requires both an egg donor and a gestational surrogate. The man’s sperm is fused with the donor eggs resulting in a varying number of embryos. Those embryos are then implanted in the surrogate using in vitro fertilization (IVF). The remaining embryos can then be frozen to be used for subsequent pregnancies.

Surrogacy laws and circumstances vary from state to state, so consult an experienced attorney in your state who represents intended parents and surrogates. It is important to do your research, talk to others who have gone through the process, and get referrals to make sure this is the path for you.
