Ovum extraction: the ovum is obtained from the intended other by a process called as ovum pick up.

Sperm: The male provides the sperm either by the process of masturbation or they are retrieved by surgical methods such as TESA/MESA/PESA.

Fertilisation: in vitro fertilization of these ovum and sperm takes place in a petri dish in the laboratory. If the sperm is not able to fertilise the ovum on its own, then process like intracytoplasmic sperm injection is helpful in facilitating the process of fertilisation and resulting in an embryo.

Implantation: the surrogate mother’s womb is prepared to receive the embryo, the embryo is then inserted and in the surrogate mother’s womb and with the help of medication implantation takes place in the womb of the surrogate mother.

Monitoring: the surrogate mother is regularly monitored by blood tests, regular sonographies and continuous monitoring to observe and ensure the growth of the baby.
