When a couple faces difficulties conceiving, it can be challenging to sit back and realize that it's impossible to conceive. When trying to conceive with their gametes, some couples can conceive, whereas others cannot do so. Fertility problems can occur in women who experience blocked fallopian tubes, scar tissue build-up after uterine ablation, ectopic pregnancy, or irregular ovulation cycles. On the other side, men who suffer from low sperm count may also have fertility issues. If a couple has been struggling with infertility issues over an extended period and has tried different treatments without success, they may decide to consider becoming parents through surrogacy.
When people ask about what services we provide, my go-to statement is 'We're here for all your surrogacy needs'. Most people think that one option will always be better than another for surrogacy. People don't consider that each couple is different and has their reasons for not wanting to carry their child. After reading this blog, you'll be able to discern whether or not surrogate pregnancy is an option for you and your spouse.
A surrogate can give a childless couple an experience that they would not be able to have without the aid of another woman's body:
For many couples, surrogacy offers them their first chance at parenthood. It is a good option for those who cannot conceive children through traditional methods, whether due to male or female infertility issues. Some parents even suffer from male and female infertility, making surrogacy even more appealing. Surrogacy also allows single people and same-sex couples to have children biologically related to one family unit member.
In most surrogacy situations, the baby is genetically related to at least one of the parents, either because the Intended Father (or an anonymous sperm donor with similar characteristics) provided the sperm or because the Intended Mother donated an egg to be fertilized by sperm from the Intended Father or another donor. This genetic connection can help ease some parents' fears about being raised by someone other than their biological mother.
There is no need for adoption:
Adopting a child is expensive, especially since you must go through an adoption agency. Sometimes, many couples apply for the same child, and the decision won't be in your hands. That is if you are fortunate enough to be successful in your quest.
Surrogacy is less expensive and gives you the chance to be involved in the entire process from start to finish. This means you get to choose who will carry your child and have a say in what kind of medical care she gets. You can even visit her every month throughout her pregnancy, something not possible with adoption, and where all communication is done via phone or email.
With surrogacy, there is no need for adoption:
A more affordable way to have a baby:
Surrogacy is one of the most effective and affordable ways to have a baby, feel like a family, and create an environment that lets you enjoy your child. With surrogate parenting, you have many options for choosing the woman who will carry your child. You can choose from women in relationships or married (traditional surrogacy), or you can choose from single women (gestational surrogacy).
A surrogate mother will help you overcome infertility problems and health issues that prevent having children independently. Once you find a surrogate mother, she will be screened for health and psychological issues. She will receive medical testing, counseling, and legal advice during the pregnancy.
Same-sex couples can finally conceive with the help of a surrogate:
With surrogacy, same-sex couples can finally conceive with the help of a surrogate. This is because surrogacy is about as close to biological parenting as you can get for men and women who cannot conceive children.
In traditional surrogacy, a surrogate mother will be artificially inseminated with the sperm of either the male partner or a donor. An embryo created by the partners or an egg donor will be implanted into the surrogate mother's womb during gestational surrogacy.
The process of creating embryos can take time. The couple may have to go through several cycles of trying before achieving a successful conception. It's also important to remember that commercial surrogacy is not permitted in all states; thus, the couple should consult with a local attorney before beginning this process.
While there are many reasons why surrogacy is the best option for some couples, it is always important to consider all options carefully before making any decisions.
