Difference between traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy

In traditional or partial surrogacy arrangements, the surrogate achieves pregnancy by means of intrauterine insemination (IUI), which means the eggs fertilized will be theirs, and subsequently she will be the biological mother of the baby.

Conversely, in the case of host, full or gestational surrogacy, the procedure is carried out by means of IVF with donor eggs. This means the gestational carrier is not genetically linked to the baby.
