Marital Status Doesn’t Matter When Seeking Surrogacy
Many single individuals struggle with their desire to become parents. They try to go through adoption agencies only to find that couples get priority for available children. Whether you've been down that road unsuccessfully or would like to become a parent to a child that shares your DNA, surrogacy can be the answer for you. Single mothers and fathers are finding success through surrogacy in the following ways.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 6.7 million women who struggle to get pregnant and carry a baby to full term. Some of these women are married and some of them are not. Just because these women can't get pregnant doesn't mean that they shouldn't get the chance to have their own child. And just because single women don't have a husband's sperm to use doesn't mean that they have to give up on their chances.
Women who choose to use their own eggs can synchronize their cycle with the surrogate. Then the intended mother’s egg is extracted and put into the surrogate mother with the sperm of a donor. The surrogate can carry the baby for you and help you start a family on your own.
It's not only women who are struggling to start a family. There are single men who find themselves with the desire to be a father. Despite their single status, these men look for opportunities to start a family. Surrogacy can give them the opportunity to do this by using the sperm of the father or a donor and donor eggs. Then, the surrogate can carry the child on behalf of the father.
There are many men and women who struggle with their desire to become parents. Whether you're married or single, gay or straight, or a man or woman, you can have the chance to become a parent through the use of a surrogate parent.
