Who Needs a Surrogate?
The women who become surrogates are remarkable moms, whom have likely seen infertility first hand within their circle of friends or family. Surrogacy is a wonderful option for those couples and individuals unable to conceive on their own.
Here are some reasons why a prospective parent may need a surrogate to build their family:
- loss of fertility due to hysterectomy or cancer.
- required medications that could prevent a healthy pregnancy or baby.
- reproductive conditions such as fibroids, absence of a uterus, endometriosis, PCOS, or other gynecological issues.
- sexual orientation; same-sex couples.
- gender identification (transgender).
- chronic pregnancy loss or unexplained infertility.
- age factors.
- relationship status.
- HIV+ risk factors.
- carriers of hereditary genetic diseases such as kidney disease, diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension that could prevent a healthy pregnancy or baby.
