Yes, you may opt for gender selection during the Surrogacy process if gender selection is permitted in the location to which you are entering your Surrogacy agreement.
In reference to a study by the International Federation of Fertility Societies Surveillance 2010, gender selection by either sperm sorting techniques and/or embryo biopsy is allowed by statute in only 15 countries, not permissible in 43 and not even mentioned in law in 15, but is adept by one or both methods in 26 countries out of the 105 countries surveyed.
Gender selection is obtainable through two methods for Intended Parents whose desire is to select the gender of the embryo enticed in their fertility treatment.
The sex chromosome originating in the sperm is the influential factor for gender. The first method is an experimental sperm-sorting technique, called Microsort. Unsuitably, methods to sort X (female) from Y (male) sperm are still imprecise due to limited parameters in current technology.
The second method is using IVF and PGD (Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis)
