Gestational Surrogacy can be the Right Path Forward To Build Your Dream Family

Surrogacy vs Gestational Surrogacy

A surrogate mother, who traditionally uses her own egg while the intended father’s sperm is artificially inseminated. In gestational surrogacy, both the sperm and egg are provided by the intended parents (or donors). The intended mother or egg donor goes through an IVF cycle and her eggs are retrieved.

What Is IVF Surrogacy?

IVF surrogacy uses a third-party “gestational surrogate” to carry the pregnancy when a patient is unable to carry a baby to term herself. The gestational surrogate signs a contract with the intended parent or parents to undergo an embryo transfer procedure using embryos created through IVF. In all cases, the gestational surrogate has no genetic ties to the baby.

Why Choose Gestational Surrogacy?

IVF surrogacy provides the ability to have a child who shares the genetics of both the mother and father, even when pregnancy is not possible for the woman. Some women are medically unable to carry a child to term but are still able to produce healthy eggs, making surrogacy a great option.

start your surrogacy journey to parenthood

Dr. Cohen and his staff were a complete blessing to our family. We just welcomed our identical twin girls this past month, and we owe it all to Dr. Cohen and the staff at IHR.


After being devastated from 2 miscarriages at a previous clinic I switched to Dr. TK. I became pregnant on my first round of IVF with him and have 6 frozen embryos.


I am so glad my OB doctor recommended IHR to anyone with infertility issues or concerns.


At IHR, the nurses and ultrasounds techs and lab techs all knew me by name... I just felt like everyone there was really rooting for me.


After more than two years of trying without success, we pursued fertility treatment with Dr. Cohen.


I'm writing this review as my infant daughter naps nearby, which would not have been possible without Dr. Tur-Kaspa and the team at IHR.


I immediately felt like he was addressing ME and MY needs, as opposed to having a protocol that may have worked for the massess.


From the very beginning, we felt strongly supported and received the very best personalized care.


It can be overwhelming but I never felt any discomfort from any procedure I had done there and I knew each was getting us closer to our goal of becoming parents.


After having no luck on our own, a friend highly recommended that we go to IHR. I am happy to say that I am currently pregnant with my first child! I do not have enough kind words to say. Everyone at IHR was wonderful.
