4 Interesting Facts about Gestational Surrogacy
Are you interested in becoming a gestational carrier in OK? Has a friend or family member asked you to help them expand their family through gestational surrogacy? If your answer to either question is “yes”, you’ve probably begun to research everything you can find on the subject of gestational surrogacy. There are many great resources on the internet that can tell you everything you need to know, but there are just as many that can make you doubt yourself and the benefits of the surrogacy journey.
You’re in good hands! Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma is a surrogacy-friendly agency that specializes in gestational surrogacy and can help guide you in the right direction. We offer assistance to intended parents who want to have children through gestational surrogacy and to women – just like you – who want to become gestational carriers.
To help you get started, here are some interesting facts about gestational surrogacy.
- Gestational Surrogacy is Common and Effective
There are two different types of surrogacy: traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy is the most common and the most accessible type of surrogacy. It is more effective than most fertility treatments, partially because intended parents and surrogacy agencies (like Adoption Choices of New York) take the gestational carrier selection process seriously. Ninety-five percent of the time, gestational surrogacy ends with the birth of a healthy baby (or babies).
- Not Any Woman Can Become a Gestational Carrier
Becoming a gestational carrier is like applying for a normal job; it isn’t a quick and simple process. As previously stated, Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma takes the gestational carrier selection process very seriously, so there are criteria you must meet before being selected. Before hiring you, the intended parents and our agency will consider your age, your fertility and your health – both physical and mental.
If you are young and healthy, your gestational surrogacy is more likely to be successful. If you have previously given birth to healthy children, then your reproductive system is considered to be in prime condition, meaning you’re less likely to miscarry. Before beginning the surrogacy process, the intended parents and our agency will evaluate your mental wellbeing. We want to make sure you understand what you’re getting into; we want to make sure you’re mentally and emotionally capable of giving up the child after birth.
- A Gestational Carrier can go Through the Process More than Once
Some may assume that gestational surrogacy is a one-time thing for both the gestational carrier and the intended parents, but that isn’t the case. If your gestational surrogacy was successful and you wish to go through the process again, you certainly can. If the intended parents want to expand their family following the birth of their first child, they certainly can.
If the intended parents decide to go through the gestational surrogacy process a second time, they don’t have to start from scratch. They can use the same gestational carrier more than once, provided they have formed a strong bond with the gestational carrier while going through the process the first time.
- Sometimes the Gestational Carrier Knows the Indented Parents Prior
Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma is available to help intended parents find an ideal gestational carrier. However, if the intended parents don’t want a stranger to carry their baby for them, they can seek help from friends or relatives. If they have a female friend or relative who meets all the physical and mental requirements, she can become their gestational carrier.
If you have been approached by friends or family members, you can certainly become their gestational carrier. We’ll evaluate you, and then we’ll help you through the gestational surrogacy process.
There’s a lot of information to unpack when it comes to the gestational surrogacy process. Women need to understand how to become a gestational carrier, and intended parents need to understand how to find a gestational carrier. Adoption Choices of New York is here to provide all the information you’ll need to know before starting the gestational surrogacy process.
