Choosing Surrogacy to build your family isn’t an easy choice. And rarely is it the first choice. When a couple learns that a surrogate is their best option to complete their family, rarely are they jumping for joy.
If you’re just starting your research on surrogacy, you may find that there are a lot of misconceptions.
How do you know Surrogacy is the right choice for you?
Whether you are a same-sex couple or have been through multiple fertility treatments, determining if surrogacy is the next step depends on how you see your life looking like in the future.
As a couple, we were in the exact same boat - not sure if we were ready to take the next step in this journey. In our Why We Chose Surrogacy post, I go into more detail about how we made the decision to move forward.
Where do I even begin?
There are a lot of overwhelming emotions that pull and tug at your heart when moving forward with Surrogacy. One of the hardest parts is understanding where to even begin in the process. Depending upon how many resources you have at your fingertips, you will need your own personal gps for the journey. Wether you navigate independently or consult an agency for direction, there are pretty standard milestones along the way that we outlined in our How To Get Started With Surrogacy post.
Can we can afford this?
With surrogacy gaining popularity thanks to the spotlight of the Kardashians and other famous Hollywood stars, some couples are under the misconception that they can’t afford surrogacy to grow their family. Admittedly, it seems daunting when you hear price ranges, but we simplify the timing and costs for you in our How Much Does Surrogacy Cost post.
Trusting Your Gut
If you see your future filled with continuing family traditions, events, and school activities, then surrogacy could be fright for you.
