Understanding the Two Types of Surrogacy
There are two types of surrogacy: traditional and gestational. In Massachusetts, gestational surrogacy is permitted as stated in Massachusetts published case law. On the other hand, there are no specific laws making traditional surrogacy either legal or illegal.
Gestational surrogacy occurs when a surrogate mother, sometimes referred to as a gestational carrier, will carry and deliver a child for intended parents but has no genetic connection to the baby. At Elevate Baby, our agency is proud to offer gestational surrogacy services and believes this is the type of surrogacy that provides the most straightforward path to parenthood for our clients.
Traditional surrogacy is when the surrogate mother has a genetic connection to the baby that they are carrying for intended parents. While there is no statute restricting this type of surrogacy arrangement in Massachusetts, this type of surrogacy is often treated as an adoption. Traditional surrogacy is not a common route that many intended parents pursue. Our surrogacy agency in Massachusetts does not offer traditional surrogacy services.
If intended parents in Massachusetts have any additional questions regarding the two types of surrogacy or why Elevate Baby only offers gestational surrogacy services, our surrogacy professionals can provide more information.

Gestational Surrogacy at Elevate Baby: How Does it Work?
At Elevate Baby, we are proud to advocate gestational surrogacy as a preferred family-building option for intended parents. For heterosexual couples, this allows them to contribute their own genetic material to the embryo. Once the intended parents have been paired with a surrogate, the eggs from the intended mother are fertilized using in vitro fertilization (IVF) with the intended father’s sperm by a doctor or fertility specialist. The gestational carrier then undergoes embryo implantation and carries the pregnancy to term.
The journey for individual intended parents or same-sex couples in Massachusetts incorporates additional steps. Female same-sex couples need to seek a sperm donor, while male same-sex couples require an egg donor to complete the surrogacy journey. Intended parents with no partner will similarly need a donor for either sperm or egg to create a viable embryo for implantation. Our experience at Elevate Baby is geared towards navigating these varied paths with professionalism and care, ensuring a joyful surrogacy experience for all involved.
