Many people have questions about surrogacy, especially when they’re first getting involved with the process. Surrogacy is a wonderful gift and an exciting experience for both surrogate mothers and parents. Here are 3 common questions surrogates often get asked, and what steps to take if you’re interested in becoming a surrogate mother or if you have questions about how surrogacy can help you grow your family.
1. What If You Want to Keep the Baby Afterwards?
This is often the biggest, and most sensitive, questions that surrogates are asked. While many people think that the person giving birth to the baby is the “mother,” this is not the case with surrogacy. Surrogate mothers know that the baby is not biologically their own and have prepared themselves for the reality of only carrying the baby for a short while.
2. Isn’t It Hard Being a Surrogate?
Like any pregnancy, a surrogate pregnancy can be difficult in many ways. However, many surrogate mothers see the value of being able to provide a wonderful service for a couple who has experienced difficulty with conception. These mothers understand that surrogacy is indeed difficult, but they are uniquely qualified to give a gift to a couple in need. For those women who desire to be a surrogate, they accept the challenges of the pregnancy and feel that the benefits outweigh them by far.
3. What If the Body Rejects the Baby?
Many people think that a surrogate’s body will reject the growing baby because it is not biologically her own. This isn’t actually true. In fact, the body doesn’t recognize that there’s a DNA difference and simply grows and nurtures the baby as it is designed to. With in-vitro fertilization, once the fertilized embryo is implanted into the uterus successfully, the pregnancy typically proceeds as normal.
