Consideration #5 What requirements should a surrogate meet and why?

It is very important that a Surrogate lives a healthy lifestyle (smoke free environment, no drinking alcohol or caffeine, and no drugs). Eating healthy, well balanced meals and a wide variety of food is essential in order to have a healthy pregnancy. Being in an emotionally well balanced environment is needed as well. It is necessary for a Surrogate to be happy with her own life and willing to give. You must have had a healthy full term pregnancy/pregnancies yourself. A surrogate must be willing to take the responsibility of caring for the unborn child for the Intended Parents, this.

Consideration #3 Will it hurt physically or emotionally?

Being a surrogate is a rewarding experience. Since each woman’s pain tolerance is different, the level of discomfort can vary. Some IVF Centers require injectable medications while others do not. As you can suspect, the delivery of the baby is the pain and discomfort that you will experience. Every pregnancy is different so it may be that your surrogacy experience is different than what your own was (some for the better and some not). You may experience emotional ups and downs throughout the surrogacy such as a negative pregnancy result after an embryo transfer or the possibility of a miscarriage..

Consideration #2 What would be good reasons to become a surrogate?

Given that surrogacy is much more than a full time job, we believe that the three best reasons to decide to become a surrogate relate to this 3 reasons: Enjoyed being pregnant and think children are a great gift. Would love to help a couple or individual have the family they have longed for. Would be satisfied with the amount of money they would be getting in compensation for their efforts   Of course you are compensated for your help, but the mission of surrogacy is to be helpful to those that need a family but can’t give it to.

Consideration #1 How is surrogacy different from my own pregnancies?

There are many differences when you are a Surrogate, than what you may remember while having your own children. As a Surrogate, the IVF Physician will manipulate your natural fertility cycle to trick your body into the pregnancy. This is done with the use of hormones so that your body will accept an embryo even though it was not created by your body. Once you are pregnant, the pregnancy is monitored by the IVF Physician throughout the first trimester. The IVF Physician will monitor your hormone levels to make certain your body has enough to maintain the pregnancy as well.

Consideration #4 How will I face the fact of carrying a baby without keeping it?

As a surrogate you are never giving up anything: the baby is not biologically connected to the surrogate. You become s a super nanny for almost a year, but it is very clear that this is not your baby, it is the intended parent´s baby. Remembering this is very, very helpful when it does come the time of the delivery, because that´s really the moment that the surrogate gets in the surrogacy for. You wanted to be pregnant and this happened, but the goal of the pregnancy is the delivery, which is really what surrogacy is all about, and that.
