Gestational Surrogacy Attorneys in New York, New York
Gestational Surrogacy is the most common form of surrogacy in the United States. The embryo is placed in the uterus of the gestational surrogate, GS, (also known as gestational carrier, GC) who carries the baby until birth. Significantly, the GS does not share DNA with the baby and is not genetically related to the baby. The person or couple (Intended Parents) for whom the GS is carrying the fetus uses either her own eggs or donor eggs, but not the eggs of the surrogate. Gestational surrogacy was legalized in New York State on April 2, 2020 and the law will take effect February 15, 2021. Currently, New York Intended Parents must look outside the State of New York to find a surrogate.
