Which method of surrogacy is legal in Ghana?
There are two methods of surrogacy Traditional and gestational.
- Traditional method – In this surrogacy method, the egg or ovum is a surrogate combined with the intended father’s sperm through artificial insemination. Due to the use of her gamete or ovum, the surrogate shares the DNA with the child. As a result, the baby will have characteristics or some similar habits to the surrogate.
- Gestational method – In this surrogacy method, the gametes are of the intended parent(s) or donor if required. The gestational carrier doesn’t share her DNA with the baby as the ovum is not hers.
Out of both methods, an expert usually suggests the gestational method as it is safer than the traditional method, and the birth mother will not share any DNA with the baby. In the traditional method, the parents need to choose more consciously than the gestational method as the child will have some of the habits and characteristics of the birth mother.
