Why Use a Surrogate Mother?

For families who are having difficulty conceiving, those suffering from infertility issues, or families who are unable to go through a healthy pregnancy, labor, or delivery, all hope is not lost.

Through surrogacy, and with the assistance of an empathetic surrogate mother, you still have the opportunity to make your dream of having a baby of your own come true. Read on to learn more about why families choose surrogacy, why you might use a surrogate mother, and which type of surrogacy might be best for you.

Reasons Families Choose Surrogacy

There are many reasons why families turn to surrogacy to fulfill their dreams. In most cases, couples who are infertile will seek alternative reproduction options.

However, same-sex couples and parents who lost a child during childbirth or gave birth to a stillborn baby are also a large percentage of those who are interested in surrogacy. The point of surrogacy is to help couples and individuals go home at the end of the day to the baby they have been longing for.

The Right Type of Surrogacy Plan For You

No matter what your reason for choosing to work with a surrogate mother, once you have made this choice, you will also need to decide which surrogacy path is the right one for you. You can choose between a gestational surrogacy arrangement or a traditional one.

Gestational surrogacy means that the surrogate mother will become pregnant through in vitro fertilization (IVF). Here, you have the opportunity to be biologically related to your baby. In a traditional surrogacy plan, the surrogate mother will become pregnant with her own eggs, making her the biological mother of the child.

All couples on a surrogacy journey are thankful to have a baby. Some are willing to pay the extra costs associated with complex IVF procedures so that they can be genetic parents of their baby. In any case, Baby Steps Surrogacy Center, Inc. can help you make an educated decision about how you wish to move forward when choosing surrogacy.
