Families That Choose Surrogacy in Oklahoma
By Molly Allington
If you are interested in becoming a surrogate mother, you may be curious about who you may be carrying a child for. There are a few different types of intended parents in Oklahoma be wanting to have a child through gestational surrogacy. In addition, these intended parents are of different genders, ethnicities, ages, and marital statuses. We are one of the surrogacy agencies in Oklahoma that specialize in the care of both surrogacy mothers and intended parents. We have surrogacy specialists who can help you decide whether becoming a surrogate mother is right for you. You can ask them what the process for each type of intended parent is like. That way you can feel more comfortable before you are matched with the families that choose surrogacy in Oklahoma.
The first type of intended parents is heterosexual couples. This type of couple could want to have a baby through surrogacy for various reasons. For example, they may be unable to have children themselves due to infertility, or the woman may not be able to have a safe pregnancy. They may also just want to choose surrogacy, so they don’t have to change their lifestyle until the baby is born. No matter the reason, heterosexual couples out there need your services. Just because they may be able to have a baby traditionally doesn’t mean they have to. They can choose whatever journey they want to have a child of their own, and you may be able to help them.
Another kind of intended parents is same-sex couples. They both may want to choose surrogacy for the same reason. As a same-sex couple, they cannot have a child traditionally, so surrogacy may be one of their only ways of having children of their own. They may want to have children related to one of them, which is when surrogacy comes in. Surrogacy for same-sex couples can include one of them as the egg or sperm donor while choosing an outside egg or sperm donor to make a baby.
Single parents can choose to get a gestational surrogate mother to carry their baby. We have worked with countless single parents who use an egg or sperm donor to create a baby. Many single parents are just as interested in becoming a parent as the couples I’ve mentioned above are. Single fathers may solely depend on surrogate mothers to have a baby of their biology. At the same time, single mothers could potentially carry a baby with help from a sperm donor. If they cannot safely be pregnant, they can choose surrogacy. Surrogacy for single parents will always include getting an outside egg or sperm donor.
Women Who Are Unable to Carry a Baby Safely
As a surrogate mother, you must meet specific requirements. One of those requirements is to have at least one successful pregnancy to term before starting your surrogacy journey. Some women can not do this safely, so as a surrogate mother, you are giving them the hope of having a child, whether on their own or with a partner. As a surrogate mother, you carry a baby for someone else, which could mean a lot to them.
Some women’s bodies do not allow them to have a safe pregnancy, and their OB/GYN may refer them to do surrogacy. These women may be single, married, dating, but they all have one thing in common: they cannot have a safe pregnancy. This can make them feel discouraged, especially when they are fertile and are ready to have a child of their own. You can help them feel at ease and give them that child they dream of.
