Being a surrogate.
So what’s it like to be a surrogate? Every surrogate pregnancy experience is unique, but most surrogates report joy in sharing their pregnancy with the intended parents. Additionally, they express happiness and fulfillment in helping their intended parents’ dream become a reality.
Why do women decide to become surrogates? Every surrogate has her own answer to this question and they are extremely varied! For some, it’s because they know someone affected by infertility. For others, it’s because they feel strongly about helping a same-sex couple build a family. But one reason we hear over and over again is a strong desire to help intended parents drop the “intended” and become actual parents.
