Can I be a Surrogate Mother if my tubes are tied?


Have you considered becoming a Surrogate Motherbut are unsure if you qualify due to the tubal ligation that you had, after your last child was born? Maybe you are done adding to your family, but still wondering and wanting to give something back to others. Maybe a friend or relative has approached you. Perhaps your sister is battling infertility.

Many women who inquire about Canadian Fertility Consultants‘s Surrogacy program seem to have this as one of their major concerns.

Gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy are facilitated through CFCs surrogacy program, however with a tubal ligation IVF is necessary, and so for most surrogates that means they will pursue gestational surrogacy.

A Gestational Surrogate is carrying a child that is not biologically connected to her. Instead of traditional surrogacy, where your eggs are used, the eggs of the intended mother (or an egg donor) are fertilized by the sperm of the intended father(or a sperm donor) and then implanted via an IVF treatment. Since the surrogate’s eggs aren’t being used, a woman who has had a tubal ligation is able to become a Gestational Surrogate.

For women interested in Surrogacy, and who have had their tubes tied, the best option would be Gestational Surrogacy. Women who have had their tubes tied are actually the preferred candidates to be a gestational surrogate by many fertility clinics. Why? Because there is no chance that she will become pregnant with her own child during the process.
