Is Surrogacy Right For You?

Pregnancy and Health

In many ways, a surrogate pregnancy is no different from any traditional pregnancy. You will experience all of the joys and challenges that come with pregnancy and childbirth, and you will see and feel your body change as it would with any developing baby.

However, you will also need to go through a complex medical process to prepare your body for a surrogate pregnancy. There will be screening requirements and doctor’s appointments, fertility medications and an embryo transfer. Throughout every step of this process, your health and safety will be a top priority.
