What Is The Difference Between a Gestational Carrier And a Traditional Surrogate?

A gestational carrier has no genetic connection to the baby. Through ‘gestational surrogacy’, she carries a pregnancy via an embryo created through in vitro fertilization (IVF) using the intended parents’ egg and sperm or using donor egg or sperm. On the other hand, a traditional surrogate provides her own egg and carries a pregnancy using the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm. Therefore, she has a genetic link to the baby. As RESOLVE points out, “due to various legal reasons, this family building option is not as common or recommended as frequently as gestational surrogacy typically would be”. Many states even prohibit traditional surrogacy.

Here’s How the Surrogacy Process Works

1 Choosing your Surrogacy Agency

When you’re sure that surrogacy is the right path for you, it’s time to decide on a surrogacy agency to support you along the way. GoStork offers access to over 60 top surrogacy agencies in the US which you can compare side-by-side and point-by-point for all the factors that matter to you (including services, costs, the time it takes to match with a gestational carrier, number of babies born, etc.). After you’ve done all your research, you can book consultation calls with agencies you’re interested in and eventually sign a contract with the agency you feel is the right fit.

Timeline: 1-3 months
2 Embryo Creation

If you haven’t yet, at this stage you’ll create your embryos (using an egg from the intended mother or a donor and sperm from the intended father or a donor). You can choose to genetically test your embryos. Check out our article for a more detailed overview of the embryo creation process.

Timeline: A typical IVF cycle takes 4 weeks if you already have an egg/sperm donor.
3 Matching with a Gestational Carrier

You will be asked to complete an intended parent profile, including facts about you, your family, your story, and what you are looking for in a gestational carrier. This helps the agency get to know you and learn more about what you’re hoping for in a journey and in a surrogate match. The agency then helps find the most ideal match that meets your criteria and the gestational carrier’s requirements. (As a note, the gestational carrier undergoes a prescreening, a Social Work Consultation and a psychological exam with a licensed professional). Profiles are exchanged and both of you will determine if you’d like to move forward and work together.

Timeline: 3-7 months
4 Medical Screening

The gestational carrier undergoes a thorough medical screening including a physical exam, a sonohysterogram to evaluate the uterus and ovaries, and blood tests to check for undiagnosed medical conditions or infectious diseases. Her medical and surgical history, including family and pregnancy history is also reviewed.

Timeline: 1 month
5 Contracts

Once the gestational carrier is medically and psychologically cleared, you can move on to the contract stage. Both parties to the contract have their own independent lawyer. Check out our surrogacy agreements article for more in-depth information on what is included and why you need one.

Timeline: 1 month
6 Embryo Transfer

The fertility clinic provides the gestational carrier with her protocol and medication. When it’s time for the embryo transfer, you can either join in person or via a video call. Next up is the two week wait - the time between the embryo transfer and hCG level blood test. The gestational carrier visits a local clinic for beta tests until the heartbeat is confirmed.

Timeline: Up to 20 days
7 Pregnancy

During the early stages, the gestational carrier continues to be monitored by a fertility clinic close to her home until she’s released to an OBGYN of her choice. The gestational carrier updates you as the pregnancy progresses. Depending on the state, your attorney may be able to start the pre-birth order process around 16-20 weeks. At this stage, you start working on a birth plan, book any travel, choose a pediatrician, and start preparing for the baby!

Timeline: 9 - 10 months
8 Birth and Establishing Parental Rights

Congratulations! It’s time to welcome your little one. Court proceedings start before or after the birth, depending on state law. An order or judgment declares the intended parents as parents of the child. International parents stay in the country until a passport is issued.

Timeline: 1.5 - 3 months

We’re thrilled to have helped these amazing intended parents on their journey!

I wish we had found GoStork at the start of our search process for egg donors, surrogacy agencies and IVC clinics. We spent months of manually searching and vetting clinics and agencies on our own. All of the information we wanted to start our journey was already compiled in GoStork, which could have saved us so much time. Also so many agencies or clinics charged us hundreds of dollars each to introductory calls, and those would’ve been completely avoided with GoStork. I definitely recommend that Intended Parents at the start of their journey use GoStork.

I’d spent literally 60-80 hours searching for donor of my race. When I found GoStork in the middle of researching all night, I bolted up wide awake - I couldn’t believe my eyes. There were so many more options in one place than I found anywhere else.


Sara G

Before GoStork I had to maintain and manage 10+ intended parent accounts at various donor agencies to search for right donor. GoStork has made my searching and communicating with agencies so much easier with just one account to maintain. It’s brilliant!

I can’t thank you enough for your services as we never would have known about our egg donor had you not offered a website that shows donors from so many different agencies. You guys have an amazing thing going and are helping so many people connect with donors! Keep up the great work. I was also very impressed that when I emailed your “[email protected]” account, I heard back from your CEO directly.
