The match meeting is an important step in the surrogacy journey, and it’s essential to come prepared. Here are a few tips to help you make the most out of your match meeting:
1. Be open and honest: The match meeting is an opportunity to get to know each other better, so it’s important to be open and honest. This means sharing your personal experiences, your hopes, and your fears.
2. Ask questions: The match meeting is also an opportunity to ask questions. This includes asking about the surrogate mother’s experiences, her expectations, and any concerns she may have. It’s also an opportunity for the surrogate mother to ask questions about the intended parents, their motivations, and their expectations.
3. Listen actively: Listening actively is just as important as sharing your own experiences. This means actively engaging with the other party, asking follow-up questions, and showing empathy and understanding.
4. Take time to reflect: After the match meeting, take some time to reflect on the experience. This can help you determine whether you feel comfortable moving forward with the surrogacy journey, and whether the match feels right.
