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 means giving, not giving up, but giving the dream, to the family whose parents have wanted for, as long as they can remember.

So, when they see the baby, and you, as the surrogate, see what you have done for them, it´s an overwhelming moment of joy and satisfaction and it´s like “I did it, I did it”, look there they are, they are holding their baby, and honestly the parents…

We have never seen a parent not come back to the surrogate and just say: “Thank you, thank you, thank you, oh my gosh, I can´t thank you enough” It´s just…

it´s so warming and rewarding and this feeling is, truly, for a surrogate, the payoff, to be able to give that gift, and knowing how long they have waited for it and you are the one, and only person in all of the world that could give that, that did give that to them…
