Surrogacy : Introduction & Myths

Dr Meenu Vashisht, Consultant, Birla Fertility & IVF discusses the basics of surrogacy as an effective alternative for want-to-be parents in this interview featured on The Mom Store. She answers a series of questions on the practice of surrogacy as per the Surrogacy Act 2021 and also sheds some misconceptions about the issue. 

Dr Vashisht says, “Surrogacy means a practice whereby one woman bears and gives birth to a child for an intending married couple or intending woman with the intention of handing over such child to the intending couple or woman after the birth.”
