In surrogacy, a gestational surrogate plays a major role in the whole treatment procedure. A gestational surrogate is a woman who carries the embryo in her womb and delivers a baby after completing the whole gestational term. Therefore, surrogacy is a type of third-party reproduction process.
If female partner of a heterosexual couple unable to carry child or complete whole gestational terms for proper development of the embryo, then eggs are collected from the intended mother and sperm from the intended father artificially fertilized in the clinical laboratory. The created embryo is implanted in the gestational surrogate for further development and delivery of the child.
In such cases, the baby has 100% biological similarities with their intended parents. This is usually recommended for couples, where the female partner has a congenital uterine problem or the uterus is injured or damaged due to an accident or disease progression or removed by a hysterectomy. But she can produce healthy eggs.
Surrogacy is also an effective measure for individual or transgender people who want to be single parents.

Similarly, a single man can use his sperm and opt for a donor egg to create an embryo.
