In 2019, an estimated 7,000 births took place by surrogate in the United States, as the market is steadily growing at 15% per year based on data from the Centers for Disease Control. And, in 2017, we know that 4.2% of all In Vitro Fertilization transfers occurred with a gestational carrier, which grew from just over 1% ten years prior.
