Surrogacy Services for Intended Parents
Becoming a parent can be a challenge for a great many people. Intended parents who explore a gestational surrogacy program as a means of having children of their own come from all backgrounds and live all over the world. Many are heterosexual couples where medical issues of either or both partners have made it difficult or impossible to successfully bear children. Others are LGBTQ people who want to have children of their very own. Whatever the reason, if you are reading this there’s a good chance you an intended parent who is ready to take a serious look at how gestational surrogacy works. Global Surrogacy Services is here to help you get started.
How Does Gestational Surrogacy Work?
In theory, the principle is quite simple. Through in vitro fertilization (IVF), an egg is fertilized by sperm in the lab. The genetic material may come from the intended parents or other sources, depending on the situation. Once fertilization is complete and one or more embryos have formed, they are implanted in the gestational surrogate’s uterus. From there on, the pregnancy continues as normal until one or more babies are born.
Of course, a surrogacy program is not merely a laboratory exercise. There are a number of important medical and legal steps that need to be taken on the road to becoming a parent. The most important of these is, of course, the selection of a surrogate.
How is a Gestational Surrogate Selected?
It takes a special kind of woman to be a gestational surrogate. It’s an act of true kindness and generosity, but pregnancy is never simple. Surrogates at Global surrogacy Services. go through a detailed and painstaking medical and psychological screening process to insure that they are both physically and psychologically able. To help ensure that the process goes smoothly, all gestational surrogates must be between 21 and 39 years of age, have given birth to a child or children without any complications, and have a child that they are currently raising.
When the time is right, intended parents will meet with a prospective surrogate. At the meeting, they will have a chance to ask the questions that will help them to decide whether or not the particular surrogate is an appropriate match for them. Global Surrogacy Services. knows that all intended parents have their own unique situation and preferences. For example, some parents may wish to have the opportunity to bond with the surrogate and to be in touch with her throughout the pregnancy and beyond. Others will want to keep the relationship more arm’s-length for a number of reasons.
