Genetic is the traditional form of surrogacy. In this, the surrogate mother is the genetic mother of the coming child, and the surrogate is inseminated with the male sperm, the father of the child. 

Gestational surrogacy: 

In gestational surrogacy the genetic mother of the child can be the own mother of the child as the eggs collected from the ovaries of the patient or the donor’s eggs can be used, mixed with male sperm in the lab (in vitro) the same process as in IVF. If the quality of sperm is not good, the donor’s eggs can be used. The fertilized egg (embryo) is transferred into the uterus of a surrogate mother.
