Surrogacy has been around for centuries and has slowly made its way into mainstream culture. Because surrogacy has been a relatively recent method of producing children through assisted reproductive technology, it is often common for intended mothers who aren’t sure about the procedure to wonder, if they’re not able to carry their own babies, is the child really her own? The answer is that the child is the surrogate mother’s child.
Before a gestational surrogate mother begins the process of surrogacy, she will have medical tests completed to determine her ability to carry a baby. These tests will look at the mother’s body mass index (BMI), her height, her weight, and the size and shape of her fallopian tubes.
It will also look to see if there are any genetic issues that could affect the ability to carry a baby, including the possibility that she might have endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome. After these tests have been conducted, the gestational surrogate mother will meet with a doctor to discuss the procedures that will be used in surrogacy.
Surrogacy will involve two people, both of whom are often already in a relationship
Although there are many couples who have had surrogacy before, the majority of surrogacy attempts are done by single women who are looking to conceive with a man they already know. Once the gestational surrogate mother has had her medical tests completed and meets with a doctor to discuss the process of surrogacy, she can then move on to the actual process of surrogacy.
The gestational surrogate mother will meet with a doctor who will administer the anaesthesia while removing the uterus of the surrogate mother. Surrogates who have chosen this method of surrogacy will often share the decision with their partners, as the choice is usually one that is more emotional than logical.
Once the uterus is removed, the surrogate mum will then have the ovaries removed and an egg harvested from her body for fertilization
As soon as she is finished with surgery, the surrogate mother will then return home with her baby and the ovaries of the surrogate mother. The gestational surrogate will then be left to go home with the baby after the surrogate mother carries the baby.
In the United States, the law is somewhat different in that in some cases, if a surrogate mother is not a US citizen, she will have to leave her baby in an orphanage and come back to have the child legally adopted. In other countries, a surrogate mother is allowed to return home with her child but is not allowed to carry the child to term and the law requires her to wait until she is a US citizen.
In many cases, once the surrogate mother has returned home, she will have to wait until her natural mother is able to have a child again. If her surrogate mother has no biological children of her own, she may find that she has no choice but to work with a surrogate mother who does have a child and adopt the child after her surrogate mother.
Sometimes the surrogate mother may also end up working as a nanny to another family’s child
Surrogacy involves several different parties, but it is important to remember that everyone involved is a legal parent. When the surrogacy process has been completed, both parents will be legally bound to raise the child jointly. Even though this may sound complicated, in reality this is a simple legal process where all parties have equal rights.
Surrogacy can be a highly complex and expensive process. Often surrogates have to wait for months or even years to be able to be pregnant and once they do they must be monitored for the rest of their lives. This can be extremely expensive for a couple who does not wish to rely on government programs, which can sometimes cost a few thousand dollars each month.
Because of these costs, some couples choose to turn to a surrogate mother who is able to carry a child after her own surrogate mothers. This way, both parents are financially able to continue to provide for the child’s needs and can save money by allowing themselves to concentrate on their careers.
It should be noted that there are a number of surrogate mums out there who are working as independent contractors. These surrogate mums can be very helpful to those who need their help, whether it be for financial reasons or medical reasons. Many people who do not qualify for Medicaid benefits or other types of health insurance may find that having a surrogate mum on their team can be the answer for them.
