Gestational Carrier (Surrogacy)
Gestational carrier fertility services
What is a gestational carrier?
Sometimes a woman will have viable eggs to fertilize, but cannot carry a pregnancy due to medical complications. Same sex couples may also require the use of a gestational carrier to achieve the goal of having a biological family.
A gestational carrier is a woman who carries a pregnancy for someone else’s embryo. The carrier is not biologically or genetically related to the child she agrees to carry. She provides her uterus for the fetus to grow, and after she delivers, the baby belongs to the biological or intended parents.

My husband and I have been patients of Carolina Conceptions since spring 2012 and now have a beautiful daughter born via a wonderful gestational carrier. Working with Carolina Conceptions has been a great experience – doctors at CC are not only highly skilled but also have empathy; staff at CC are helpful, warm, and prompt.”
