If you’re interested in connecting with a fellow surrogate, all you need to do is go online. There are plenty of surrogacy support groups for you to join and learn from, no matter where you are in your surrogacy journey.
However, it’s important to contact a surrogacy agency and talk to a surrogacy professional to get accurate information. While these groups can help you connect with other surrogates, not all the information posted online may be applicable to your surrogacy situation.
Here are some places to look to learn more about surrogacy from those who have taken the journey.
This online forum of surrogates, intended parents and egg donors provides a wide range of views about every part of the surrogacy process. You’ll find forums where you can ask questions and read responses from those who have been through the process, and informative articles about surrogacy.
This is another online resource where you can connect with former and current surrogates to learn more about the process. In addition to listing classifieds and holding conversations in the message boards, the site also provides examples of surrogate contracts and informational Q&A articles from surrogacy experts.
The website provides prospective surrogates and intended parents a chance to find each other and to connect with surrogacy professionals. Prospective and former surrogates can share their stories through blog posts, as well.
With over 4,000 members, the closed group is the largest community of surrogates and intended parents on the social media platform. Join the group to read others’ stories about surrogacy and ask any questions you may have.
The closed group is another way to connect with surrogates and intended parents in a confidential, direct way.
This group is designed to match intended parents and prospective surrogates.
Like the group above, this closed group allows its members to match with potential surrogates and intended parents.
While these are all virtual groups, many surrogates say having this sense of community is instrumental in knowing what to expect from their surrogate pregnancy. Knowing there is someone who understands what you’re going through will also help make your surrogacy as stress-free as possible.
Once you find a surrogacy professional to work with, it’s a good idea to ask your social worker to connect you with former surrogates. That way, you can ask whatever questions you’d like and learn more about what you can expect from your upcoming surrogacy process.
Remember, surrogacy is not a journey you should take alone. Don’t be afraid to reach out for support from your friends, family and professional whenever you feel like you need it.
