Reasons for Intended Parents to Choose Gestational Surrogacy in 2021
We can all agree that 2020 was a year of...let’s just call it, uncertainty. That said, there’s no doubt that we’re all hoping (and perhaps expecting) 2021 to be better. This is especially true for those who have been aching to grow their families. Because of the coronavirus epidemic, scheduling appointments while also feeling safe has been much more difficult than anyone could have guessed. It’s totally understandable if you chose to wait to begin the process of growing your family due to this unfortunate reality.
As we settle into the new year, we can expect to welcome in new opportunities and life changes, as we do with the beginning of every year. It is easy to feel a bit hesitant to begin your gestational surrogacy journey. Not to worry, though! Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Reno is here with top 4 reasons that you should continue pursuing gestational surrogacy in 2021.
1. Past Issues with Conceiving
This may be a bit of a low note to start on, depending on your situation. Many intended parents seek out gestational surrogacy because they are unable to have children on their own. In fact, the majority of intended parents who seek gestational surrogacy have had a past history of trouble conceiving. For some intended mothers, they’re unable to safely carry a pregnancy to term. This could be for a myriad of reasons, from ectopic pregnancies to multiple miscarriages to challenging health conditions. For other intended parents, they’re unable to conceive at all for reasons unknown.
It’s an intense and heart-wrenching experience for any hopeful intended parent, whether they’re a single parent or a couple.
2. Bonding with Your Match
As soon as you’ve found the gestational surrogate you’d most like to be your match, you’ll be working very closely with them. Not only will you be getting to know them at a basic level, but you also could very well become close friends. It isn’t unheard of for matches to share a lifelong bond! After all, you’ll be in the metaphorical trenches with them for at least one year, and your surrogate will be the only one who understands exactly what you’re experiencing throughout your surrogacy journey.
3. Bonding with Other Intended Parents
While you may have bonded with your surrogate, there is an aspect to the surrogacy journey that they won’t ever truly understand -- what it’s like to be in the shoes of an intended parent. There will be good days and bad, and there could be moments where you feel completely isolated from everyone around you. Being an awaiting intended parent is a strange and unparalleled experience on its own. You will find that you may need to chat with someone who has been where you are, and can offer you some much-needed advice and experience as to how you can maneuver in this field.
At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Reno, we highly suggest you look to surrogacy support groups, for both intended parents and gestational surrogates. Ask your doctor or fertility specialist if they have any suggestions on where you can find a group of fellow intended parents. It may be tricky to find any in-person group session due to the current global pandemic, but it’s not impossible. There are also surrogacy support groups you can find through social media platforms, Facebook or MeetUp.
4. Growing Your Family through Gestational Surrogacy
The first thing that will most likely come to mind, of course, is that you’ll be growing your family into what you’ve always dreamed it could be. This isn’t anything to brush under the rug -- you deserve to have your home filled with the laughter and love you’ve always imagined. If you’re still feeling uneasy about whether or not 2021 is the year to pursue gestational surrogacy, we covered how you can navigate your gestational journey during the pandemic here.
