The Various Facets of Renting a Womb

The Various Facets of Renting a Womb

Renting a womb or surrogacy has been in the limelight for some years. India is a hot destination for renting womb due to many favourable factors. There are many other facets of renting a womb that we are still not aware of. Read on to get some insight into renting a womb.

There are a lot of social and psychological aspects that define the concept of renting a womb. The three most important ones are:

  1. The fact that the woman who has rented her womb relinquishes the child soon after giving birth
  1. The biological mother or the commissioning couple receives the commissioned baby
  1. The child itself

Renting a Womb is a Way of Creating Family

Renting a womb is very different from the manner in which couples create families

This is a motherhood concept that has always attracted the interest of people who are concerned with the theoretical, practical, and psychological and the clinical aspects of it. There are a lot of ethical and moral dilemmas in this concept as the commissioning couple wants the woman who has rented her womb to initiate, gestate and deliver a baby for them. They seek to obtain these services by compensating the woman financially.

The other side of the story is that the woman who is renting her womb voluntarily agrees to conceive, where she also agrees to a predetermined agreement to relinquish the child and let it grow as a part of her family. This gives rise to three prominent psycho-social concerns as well.

Social Circumstances and Psychological Traits -

There is a marked variability of the social circumstances and psychological traits in the women who wish to rent their womb. Every time it is not financial and even if it is financial the purpose can be very different depending on the economic and social strata of the woman and her family.

Thinking of Society the Woman Belongs To -

The population and the society that the woman who agrees to become a surrogate belongs to, also play a vital role. This is because it defines the acceptance of the condition and more so in a conservative setup. It inevitably renders a deep impact on the well being of the woman carrying the child.

Understanding Between Surrogate and Biological Mother -

The entire process does not end with just the nine months of pregnancy. The period before and after the nine months is equally important. This is for the simple reason that the surrogate mother and the offspring will get affected by it. The family of the woman who has rented her womb is her moral, social and emotional support in such a crucial decision. Any upheaval in this setup can result in chaotic representation that can spell legal and other emotion hassles for the surrogate and the biological mother.

The Parenthood Issue

There are several accepted laws and discourses on parenthood. In the process of renting of womb, some important biological facts have been left out. For instance –

  • Then, gestation and delivery of the child does not happen in the biological couple.

So under these discourses, the parents or the couple where the woman is renting her womb becomes the mother as her chromosomes are involved, even though her eggs are not.

This is considered to be a new reality under the social and medical terminology. This is a confusion clouding the chromosomal parenthood. A woman who rents out her womb is not considered to be the real mother as according to mutual agreement or on the basis of predetermined contract. But if one goes by the gestational, that is the biological and genetic terms, even the legal terms that define motherhood, she happens to be the real mother of the child.
