What is surrogacy?
The surrogacy, is a process by which a woman lends her uterus so that one or more embryos from another couple are transferred to her, that contribute her own genetic material, and that due to fertility problems or Impossibility cannot do it by themselves. Therefore the surrogate mother does not have any genetic ties with the child and once she gives birth, she will renounce all rights and obligations on the newborn in favor of the person or persons who will be her legal parents.
People who opt for surrogacy are couples whose pregnancy for women may pose a high risk to their health, abnormalities exist in their uterus or have tried unsuccessfully several cycles of in vitro fertilization. The people of the LGBT and single group, with the contribution of a donor (ovaries or semen) with the surrogacy service can create a complete family and make possible their dream of being parents.

They may not be surrogate mothers, women with physical problems, with problems of social exclusion, drug addiction, or criminal records, having to pass a thorough medical check before starting the process.
