What is surrogacy?
Surrogate or surrogacy is an assisted reproduction technique that allows patients to fulfill their dream of forming a family with children. It is a treatment in which a woman altruistically bears a child for another couple or partner.
Surrogacy in Colombia
At Celagem we are respectful of the laws and the Political Constitution of Colombia, and therefore of the rights that it professes, in the same way we respect the rights of all people.
According to the National Political Constitution of Colombia “both men and women have the same rights and opportunities before the law, therefore there can be no discrimination” This covers children with the right to have a family and not be separated from it, as well as same-sex couples who wish to legally get married.
In Colombia, same-sex couples have the same rights and obligations as heterosexual couples, including the right to procreate, in this sense the surrogacy is possible for heterosexual, homoparental and single-parent couples.
In Colombia, surrogacy for heterosexual or same-sex couples is possible.
Who can be an intentional parent?
Most people who resort to surrogacy are usually: Women with no uterus or malformations of the same, same-sex couples and single men, it should be noted that all alternatives should be considered first and to take the one that best suits their needs.
This is one of the most common concerns of our patients, because they may think that by not participating in the gestation process the baby will have genetic material of the surrogate mother. The truth is that embryos are obtained from the eggs of the biological mother or donated eggs, along with sperm from the biological father. For this reason the baby, will only have genetic material from the person who contributes the gametes.
