To find a surrogate, the woman who will lend her womb to you and your spouse, to create the family you’re longing for can be a challenge. You have to consider what you’re comfortable with and want out of the relationship with the surrogate, too.
Every surrogate will be different. Every surrogate is going to want specific things out of her journey both emotionally and logistically. Finding the perfect fit is key to making a challenging process a smooth, seamless, and special journey full of love.
Here’s a few steps to help you find your surrogate match:
1. Ask For Referrals
If you know anyone who has gone through the IVF process with a surrogate, ask them for recommendations. If they had a positive experience, it’s possible you will too by using the same team they did.
Ask your friends about what they liked and did not like about their surrogacy process. Get the details about what they think would make for a smooth journey with a surrogate.
2. Do Your Research
Not all surrogacy programs are created equally. When it comes to how to find a surrogate, you need to do some research. Read all the reviews you can about an agency or program before you sign any contracts.
There are many programs to choose from online, but if you want to find a surrogate that is tested, tried, and true- then stick the programs with great reputations and a big selection of experienced surrogates.
Also make sure you’ve considered the best IVF clinics to schedule a consult for your chosen surrogate.
3. Follow Your Heart
There are aspects of this process that are bigger than all of us. We truly believe that you will find the surrogate of your dreams that you were meant to be matched with. Many surrogates remain part of the intended parent’s lives for years to come.
If you have a good feeling or inkling about a certain surrogate or program, then move swiftly in that direction. Having a child through IVF doesn’t have to be completely clinical, you can extend your wings of love and include family, friends, and your surrogate in this process.
