Becoming a surrogate through our practice can help hopeful parents realize their dreams. It has many requirements, including having at least one child of your own. We want our surrogates to understand that they are giving hopeful parents an invaluable gift.
What you could expect as a surrogate is, for your initial visit, you come in, you meet the doctor. He interviews you, he asks medical questions you've had. He needs to review your OB records from previous pregnancies. We also require that all surrogates need to have at least one child of their own.
The other thing that's very important for surrogates to understand is that they're giving . . . this is such a precious gift that they're giving intended parents or women who are not able to carry a pregnancy on their own. And it's such a special connection and a special gift that they're able to give somebody. And that is so special in itself that they really need to understand that they're doing such a great job and they're doing something wonderful for an intended parent.
