When I was first approached by magic Journeys about being a surrogate mother, I’ll admit that I was hesitant. I had a lot of questions and concerns. Was this something that was safe? Would the baby be healthy? How would this affect my own health? After doing some research and talking to my doctor, I decided that surrogacy was something that I could do and that I wanted to do. Here’s why.
When you become a surrogate mother, you have the opportunity to help create a family. For many couples who are unable to conceive, surrogacy is their only option for becoming parents. And as a surrogate, you get to play a very special role in making their dream come true. For me, that was something that was very important.
Another reason why I decided to become a surrogate is because of the amazing advances in medical technology. Thanks to modern medicine, we now know so much more about fertility and pregnancy than ever before. We can screen both the eggs and sperm for genetic abnormalities before fertilization even takes place. And during the pregnancy itself, we can monitor the baby’s health very closely. So while there are certainly risks involved with any pregnancy, surrogacy today is much safer than it has ever been before. I believe that every child deserves a chance at life—no matter how they are conceived.
Finally, I chose to become a surrogate because Magic Journeys provide exceptional services and while surrogacy isn’t right for everyone, I am grateful that it was an option for me and that I am able to give this incredible gift to someone else.
