definition of gestational carrier
a woman who gives birth to a baby for another woman who cannot have children. A gestational carrier is different from a surrogate because a surrogate provides the egg as well as giving birth, while a gestational carrier uses a fertilized egg that is placed inside her.
Choosing to use a gestational carrier is a big decision, but for some women, it’s the only way they’ll ever have a biological child.
