Potential surrogate mothers are required to go through a series of medical tests and procedures to ensure that their bodies are fit to carry and give birth to a healthy child. The specific medical procedures used will vary from case to case, but will help confirm that the surrogate's reproductive system is in good functioning condition. It's important to keep in mind that many couples decide to use a surrogate mother because they have experienced the disappointment of losing a baby, or the frustration of not being able to conceive in the first place. Agencies that connect potential surrogates with couples who want to have children have a responsibility to both parties to ensure that the pregnant mother is healthy for the sake of all involved.
Yeah,man,thanks for your post,as we are seriously thinking right now over the possibility of having another kid-and this time with a help of a surrogate mother.Of course,there are some fears and cautions present,but aren't they present anytime you're talking about having a kid? :) We've found a right clinic for it,I think,but what we are afraid most of all-will our surrogate mother be a proper person to give all her best for our kid during a pregnancy?Will she behave the right way and won't drink,smoke,do some drugs or sleep with men?It's hard to know all that,because it's so impossible to follow her all the time,right?And you want to know if it's alright all the time-it will be truly your child this time,right?
As for me I want to add that surrogacy is much better than adoption, cause contrary to sensible logic there are many children in need of a home - so adoption should be easier, being allowed to adopt a child is difficult and takes a long time. The whole paperwork process along with psychological evaluations and waiting list etc. may take many years. Surrogacy is a means of attaining parenthood in the true sense of the term – and this in itself brings joy to such a couple. The advantage through it all is that in the end, no matter how long and tedious the process is, you will finally become parents. The only problem that this process needs a lot of money. When it comes to budget, most couples might find it too costly for their means. And not all medical insurance companies cover the fertilization or the delivery process.
Sometimes the surrogate mother supplies the egg to be fertilized, though some couples have their own genetic material implanted into the surrogate mother. About 40 weeks later, the surrogate mother delivers a healthy baby, which the couple can then take home with them without dealing with the physical issues that pregnancy can provide. Another benefit of surrogacy is the chance to form lifelong connections that benefit the family. Many surrogates stay involved in the lives of the children they helped to carry, creating a community aspect of family that provides a loving environment where a child can grow up. For many couples, the primary detriment to surrogacy is the overall cost
