Once you have made the decision to pursue parenthood through surrogacy, the next step is to find the right surrogate to carry your baby. Although you and your partner will be the baby’s biological parents and the baby will be born with your DNA, the surrogate you choose will be the person actually giving birth to your baby. This is why it is so important for prospective parents to be matched with the right surrogate. If you have struggled with infertility, a pregnancy is too risky for you, or you are unable to carry a pregnancy to term, surrogacy may be a viable option for you. Surrogacy is also an excellent option for men in a same-sex relationship. Couples who want to have a child they are biologically related to. Also, for women in a same-sex relationship who are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy on their own.
Having a child via surrogate is an important choice. There are many factors that come into play in ensuring a happy and healthy surrogacy journey. That is where our team of professionals at Love & Kindness Surrogacy comes in. We are committed to making parenthood possible for you and your partner. We would be honored to help guide you through the process of finding a surrogate and having a child of your own.
Finding a Surrogate
Finding the right surrogate is extremely important, as this will be the person responsible for carrying your baby for the nine months leading up to his or her birth. Some couples who opt for surrogacy have a friend or loved one who offers to be their surrogate. Other couples try to find a surrogate on their own using social media or other online resources.
Unfortunately, finding a surrogate who meets the general requirements for surrogacy in this way can prove to be quite challenging and time-consuming. Imagine, for instance, that you post an ad for a surrogate online and you get 20 responses. You could spend weeks emailing or calling these potential surrogates. Only to find that half of them have never been pregnant before and the others smoke. Some have a history of drug use or end up being disqualified by your IVF doctor for other reasons. Now you are back at square one with nothing to show for your time.
The simplest and most efficient way to find a surrogate is through a legitimate surrogacy agency. At Love & Kindness Surrogacy, we provide prospective parents with candidates who are pre-screened and qualified for surrogacy. This means no waiting and no weeding through dozens of unqualified surrogates.
Why Choose Surrogacy?
Becoming a parent is something many people dream of their entire lives. However, not every person who wants to have a child is able to do so on their own. Fortunately, we have surrogacy. This is an arrangement in which a woman agrees to bear a child for someone else, carry the baby through pregnancy, and then return the baby to the intended parents after birth. There are many different circumstances under which a single person or couple may choose to have a child via surrogate. Infertility is one of the most common reasons, but it is certainly not the only one. Some potential candidates for surrogacy include the following:
- Women who are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy because of a serious health problem
- Single people who dream of raising a child of their own
- Couples for whom IVF has not delivered the intended results
- Same-sex couples who want to expand their family
Surrogacy may seem like a complicated arrangement and it can be in some cases. But when both parties enter into a surrogacy agreement with realistic expectations regarding how the process works and what rights and responsibilities they have at each stage of their surrogacy journey, surrogacy can be a beautiful thing.
