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 includes attending medical appointments and being reliable with communication.
