How to choose surrogate mother? Surrogacy by Pons will try to answer at all common questions. Surrogacy is a reproductive option for couples and individuals who cannot conceive but want to become parents of their own biological children. A surrogate mother is someone who carries and delivers a baby for someone else. Pons Medical Research can find surrogate mothers through personal referrals, agencies and attorneys and choose someone who is screened and healthy. Traditional Surrogates It is a woman who gets artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm. She then carries the baby and delivers it for you and your partner. A traditional surrogate is the baby’s biological mother. That’s because it was her egg that was fertilized by the father’s sperm. Donor sperm can also be used. Gestational Surrogates A technique called “in vitro fertilization” (IVF) now makes it possible to gather eggs from the mother, fertilize them with sperm from the father, and place the embryo into the uterus of a gestational surrogate. The surrogate then carries the baby until birth. She doesn’t have any genetic ties to the child because it wasn’t her egg that was used. A gestational surrogate is called the “birth mother.” The biological mother, though, is still the woman whose egg was fertilized. In addition, with the process of traditional surrogacy, it is unlikely that the surrogate will need to take additional fertility medication. It is important to note, that with traditional surrogacy, the surrogate will be the child’s biological mother. With gestational surrogacy the sperm and the egg both come from the intended child’s biological parents, the surrogate will not be biologically related to the child and is only used for carrying purposes. This can be of extreme importance to many parents. Many women are capable of producing healthy eggs, yet are not able to become pregnant, they are ideal candidates to choose a gestational surrogate, also those who may be able to become pregnant but have a history of miscarriage. Finding a Surrogate There are several ways you can find a surrogate mother: Friends or family. Sometimes you can ask a friend or relative to be a surrogate for you. It’s somewhat controversial. But because of the high cost of surrogacy and the complex legal issues it raises about parental rights, a tried-and-tested family relationship can be simpler to manage. An agency helps you find a surrogate and make arrangements. It also collects any fees that get passed between you and the surrogate, such as paying for her medical expenses. How to Choose a Surrogate You should choose a surrogate who: -Is at least 21 years old -Has already given birth to at least one healthy baby so she understands firsthand the medical risks of pregnancy and childbirth and the emotional issues of bonding with a newborn. -Has passed a psychological screening by a mental health professional to uncover any issues with giving up the baby after birth. -Signs a contract about her role and responsibilities in the pregnancy, such as prenatal care and agreeing to give you the baby after birth. Using a Surrogate Surrogates should get a medical exam to check that she’s likely to have a healthy, full-term pregnancy. Pons Medical Research suggests she gets tests that check for infectious diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, cytomegalovirus, and hepatitis B and C. Surrogates should pass tests to make sure they have immunity to measles, rubella (German measles), and chickenpox. Also, you may want to ask that she get a medical procedure to visually “map” the uterus, which can help the doctor check her potential to carry a pregnancy. A surrogate mother should have her own doctor during pregnancy rather than use yours. What kind of relationship will your surrogate maintain with your baby after birth? You may feel comfortable finding a place for her as part of your child’s extended family. It is ethical and kind to give the surrogate a chance to at least say goodbye to the baby, and to see it welcomed into your loving home. Often, surrogates maintain a distant relationship during the first year, and then gradually become more detached over time. In many cases, though, intended parents and surrogates form a close bond that becomes a lifelong friendship. A contract between the intended parents and the surrogate is absolutely mandatory. Contracts exist to clearly set out the expectations of all parties in any relationship, business or personal. Will you have amniocentesis performed when your surrogate becomes pregnant? How will you be prepared to respond to the outcomes? If multiple pregnancies specifically, triplets or more result, will you choose to selectively reduce, and will she be willing to undergo this procedure? If there is a diagnosis of Down syndrome or another more severe condition, will you terminate the pregnancy, or proceed, and will your surrogate agree? There are a lot of questions you should answer.
