How to Become a Surrogate Mother
Tuesday, September 22, 2015
It’s a sad fact in life that many couples are unable to conceive a child of their own due to health and fertility problems. Luckily, the innovation of modern medicine has provided an amazing option for those couples: surrogate mothers.
Becoming a surrogate mother
is an important decision and shouldn’t be made without fully understanding the process and how it will affect you. And though it can be an overwhelming decision, being a surrogate mother gives a tremendous gift to a struggling couple and, simply put, it can’t be done without you. If you feel surrogacy is right for you, we are here to help you through the process.
One of the first steps in determining if becoming a surrogate mother is right for you is to look at your current physical health. It’s no secret that pregnancy puts your body through a lot, which is why it’s important to get checked out and see if it’s something you’re physically able to handle. A clean bill of health is a vital prerequisite to becoming a surrogate mother.
Becoming a surrogate is an incredibly admirable act, so it’s no surprise that many women experience very intense emotions as they go through the process. A good thing to establish is a reliable support system. This could include family, friends, a therapist, and the intended parents.
Though there is a medical risk that comes with pregnancy for every woman, that risk has gotten less prominent over the years as modern medicine has evolved, which applies to the surrogacy process as well. We at CSP, Inc. work with the medical health professional to walk surrogates through every step, your safety and well-being is paramount. Keeping the surrogacy process as safe and comfortable as possible is best for everyone involved.
