Benefits of Gestational Surrogacy for Intended Parents

You’re a hopeful intended parent who’s struggled to start a family. You’re scouring the internet, searching for hope and answers. You’ve learned that gestational surrogacy is a popular option for those who can’t have children conventionally, and now you think it might be the solution to your problem. Here are some of the benefits of gestational surrogacy.

1) Anyone can Have Biological Children through Gestational Surrogacy

Women and men across the country struggle to start a family for a varying reasons. Different people face different obstacles. Fortunately, gestational surrogacy can make anyone’s dream of parenthood a reality regardless of circumstance.

Gestational surrogacy is popular among members of the LGBT community. Gay men, lesbians, and transgender individuals often struggle to start a family because they can’t reproduce conventionally. Two gay men, for example, can’t have biological children without the use of a surrogate and an egg donor. Gestational surrogacy opens a door for LGBT couples who want to become parents.

Sometimes single or unmarried individuals pursue gestational surrogacy. Some men dream of fatherhood but don’t have a female partner to conceive a child with. These men are able to have children through gestational surrogacy.

Married couples who struggle with infertility also pursue gestational surrogacy. Some are unable to conceive, and some have had miscarriages. Gestational surrogacy allows them to have biological children when it wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

2) Gestational Surrogacy has a High Efficiency Rate

Gestational surrogacy has a high efficiency rate. Over 90 percent of all surrogacy result in the birth of a child or children. This is because agencies, like Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma, carefully select their surrogates.

Young women (between the ages 21 and 39) are selected to become surrogate mothers. Agencies conduct physical and psychological evaluations to ensure that the women are healthy and mentally prepared for the surrogacy journey. They also analyze the surrogate’s reproduction history:

  • How many pregnancies has she had?
  • Were those pregnancies easy?
  • How were the deliveries?
  • Were the children born healthy?
  • Were there any miscarriages?

The intended parents also undergo psychological evaluations.

3) Gestational Surrogacy is Simple and Accessible Compared to Other Options

Gestational surrogacy is more accessible and less challenging (legally) than traditional surrogacy. With traditional surrogacy, the surrogate is the child’s biological mother. Because of this relation, she is more likely to become attached, change her mind, and fight to keep the child for herself. For this reason, traditional surrogacy has been banned across the U.S. and is no longer a recognized type of surrogacy.

With gestational surrogacy, the surrogate has no relation to the child. Everyone involved understands how the surrogacy process works, so there’s less of a risk for the intended parents losing the child to the surrogate.
