Who Are Intended Parents in Oklahoma?
Are you interested in the surrogacy process in Oklahoma? Do you want to know more about the process, your role as gestational surrogacy, or who the intended parents are? Surrogacy is a complex and rewarding process intended to help start families. Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma is a professional surrogacy agency designed to help match surrogates and intended parents together, provide counseling, referrals, and medical assistance to ensure a smooth and safe process for all parties involved.
What is Gestational Surrogacy in Oklahoma?
Whether you are considering becoming a surrogate mother or an intended parent, then it’s important to know the basics of surrogacy and what it is. If you are a surrogate mother, you are a woman who carries and delivers a child for a couple or an individual. Insemination happens through IVF, meaning that the intended parents’ egg and sperm are used. However, it is also possible to use a donor’s egg or sperm for an intended parent. As a result, surrogates are not biologically related to the child they carry.
What Does it Mean to Become Intended Parents in Oklahoma?
Intended parents refer to a couple or an individual that is looking to have a child of their own. There are a variety of reasons why pregnancy may not be an option, such as, but not limited to:
- Same-sex male couples.
- Same-sex female couples cannot carry a child themselves, possibly due to health risks or infertility.
- Single men looking to have a child of their own.
- Single women who cannot carry a child themselves, possibly due to health risks or infertility.
These are only a few examples of what intended parent(s) can look like. At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma, we are here to support you as a gestational carrier and help match you to the best intended parent or couple suited for your surrogacy journey. Through this process, you will have the chance to form a strong bond with the intended parents you are matched with and go through a beautiful shared experience together.
Every story is different for an intended parent or parents. Surrogacy is a life-changing decision to make for all parties involved. As a result, Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma understand the importance of gestational surrogacy and works to make sure that both carriers and intended parent(s) are happy and healthy.
What Are the Requirements For Intended Parents in Oklahoma?
If you are interested in gestational surrogacy, you should know the intended parent’s steps during the OK surrogacy process. But, first, they have to make sure they fulfill the requirements beforehand. This ensures that everyone involved is best suited for the surrogacy process legally, medically, and financially.
To be a successful intended parent or couple, they first must be emotionally and financially capable of raising a child. This means they are excited at the prospect of becoming a parent, financially secure, and having a stable living environment suited for raising a child. They also must have the support of their partner or close friends and family that can attest they are ready to become a parent. They must also not have a criminal record and be prepared to have open and honest conversations. They should also have a working sense of what gestational surrogacy is and understand the Oklahoma surrogacy process they will embark on.
If they fulfill these prerequisites, the intended parents must complete a psychological evaluation and background check to ensure they are emotionally equipped to raise a child. They also need to complete and submit paperwork in a timely manner to make sure the process runs smoothly. Lastly, they must show respect to the surrogate mother they are matched with and be mindful of your time and the process you are going through.
