The Miracle of Your Child's DevelopmentOne of the most exciting moments of a surrogacy is the confirmation that the surrogate mom is pregnant. Within 5 days of the embryo transfer process, this new life begins to develop in a rigorous way. The hCG hormone is released into the surrogate's bloodstream, and the placenta begins to develop. Within 10 days of the embryo implantation, there are sufficient levels of hCG to register on a pregnancy test. For both the intended parents and the special woman chosen to carry their child, it is a joyful step toward the creation of a new family. From the moment the baby is tucked away safely inside the surrogate mother's womb, there is an amazing journey of fetal development in the womb for the next nine months.
