What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is the arrangement in which a woman carries and delivers a child, for a couple or individual, that is not genetically related to the surrogate (this is called “Gestational Surrogacy”). This process is done by using the intended father’s sperm (or a sperm donor’s sperm) and the intended mother’s egg(s) (or an egg donor’s egg(s)) to create an embryo or embryos that are then transferred into the surrogate.

What to Consider Before Starting Your Journey

If you’re thinking of becoming a surrogate there are a few things that you should take into consideration before moving forward. Most importantly, you will need to know how to begin your journey and how to select a couple or individual that you would like to help create their family.

Other aspects of surrogacy that you should consider are:

Time commitments. Being a surrogate is a commitment of least 1 year. Also, along with regular OB/GYN appointments during the pregnancy, you may also be required to travel to the fertility clinic if the intended parent’s chosen clinic is not local to you.

Medical appointments. As you probably know from your own pregnancy there are quite a few medical appointments that you need to attend; and being a surrogate requires a few more.

Self-Administration of Injections.  The fertility clinic will show you how to administer the hormone injections prior to your embryo transfer and you will need to ensure that you are able to do them on your own (or with the help of a friend or family member).

This list is not fully inclusive of all that you need to consider. Therefore, please contact Conceptual Options for more considerations pertaining to your individual situation.
