Who Are the Women Who Choose to Become Surrogates in Oklahoma?
Becoming a surrogate is a big choice, and not everyone is the right fit for surrogacy. However, there are some women who thrive in the role of a surrogate, and they would never change the experience they had. Many surrogates decide to act as a surrogate for selfless reasons, deciding to help couples who are unable to have a child on their own.
If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate, you might be wondering if it’s something you truly want to do. It can be tricky to figure out if you truly want to become a surrogate or if you just admire the act without it being a good fit for you personally. At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Oklahoma, potential surrogates go through a background check and screening process to determine if they’re a good candidate for surrogacy. And even if you do pass the background requirements (like being 21 or older and having carried at least one healthy pregnancy to term in the past) and you’re a good fit for surrogacy, it doesn’t mean that surrogacy is necessarily a good fit for you.
We want to ensure all of our surrogates are informed and wholeheartedly want to become a surrogate on their own, not because of any outside pressure. One of the best ways to decide if you want to become a surrogate is taking the time to reflect on your personality and motivations. A great way to do this is by comparing yourself to other women who choose to be Oklahoma surrogates.
3 Types of Women Who Choose to Be Oklahoma Surrogates
Women across the country have become surrogates for one reason or another. Every surrogate is unique, and they are motivated to become a surrogate for their own reasons. One thing all surrogates have in common, however, is that they are making a beautiful, selfless choice that allows others to grow their own family.
Women Who Enjoyed Being Pregnant but Don’t Want to Raise Another Child
We know it’s hard to believe, but there are women who enjoy the pregnancy process through and through. Pregnancy is more challenging for some women than it is for others, and there are women who choose to become surrogates because they want the experience of growing a baby without having to raise another child themselves. If you find yourself in this category, this could be a valid reason to become a surrogate.
Women Who Want to Give Back to Their Community
Doing something kind has the tendency to make us feel good. Human beings are social creatures, and the act of giving back to our community is a great way to help those around us. If you’ve donated to an organization in the past or spent time volunteering for a cause you’re passionate about, you know what we’re talking about. The way some women decide to give back is by becoming a surrogate for people who are unable to conceive a child themselves. If surrogacy seems like the perfect way to do something good, becoming a surrogate is definitely something for you to think about.
Women Who Have a Personal Connection with Infertility
Maybe you’ve watched your sister struggle with infertility for years, or you’ve read a book that made you realize infertility is an issue that’s close to your heart. Whatever the reason, many women decide to become surrogates because of a personal connection with infertility.
As human beings, many aspects of our personality and our motivations are inspired by events we’ve experienced personally. So it would make sense for women who’ve seen infertility first hand or who’ve been inspired by a surrogate to want to begin their own surrogacy journey.
