Types of Women Who become Surrogates in Colorado
Surrogates are a group of women who give back to their communities by carrying the children of intended parents who would not otherwise have been able to conceive. While each surrogate has their own life experience and path to surrogacy, all are providing an incredible gift to deserving, loving families.
Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado aids women of all types on their paths to surrogacy. Below, we offer an overview of the types of women who become surrogates.
- Women who are Selfless and Want to Help Others
To bring the joy of life to others, it takes a selfless woman. Pregnancy is a sacrifice of your body and your energies and choosing to carry someone else’s child is a big decision. Surrogates are an altruistic group of women who want to help others by helping intended parents bring a baby into this world so they can raise a baby from birth. Surrogacy is a wonderful opportunity for women to give back.
- Women who Witnessed the Joy Surrogacy Brings to Others
After witnessing surrogacy in action — either through friends, family, or hearing stories from others — some women decide to become surrogates themselves. They have seen a family grow, or an individual or couple have a child after not being able to conceive on their own. Observing the act of someone going through surrogacy and the aftermath of joy in the intended parents’ life can inspire women to become surrogates.
- Women who Understand the Pain of Infertility
Infertility is a leading reason why many intended parents come to surrogacy agencies in Colorado for help in building their families. Women sometimes become surrogates after seeing their friends and loved ones struggle with infertility.
Gestational surrogacy makes building a family possible for any intended parent, thanks to egg and sperm donor availability and the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Surrogates with gestational surrogacy are not related to the baby at all, so none of the parties involved need to worry about emotional attachment or legal battles.
Becoming a surrogate in Colorado for someone who cannot have a child of their own is an incredibly selfless act and one that is greatly appreciated. Women who see the fulfillment firsthand are especially likely to become surrogates.
- Women who Want to Help Their Loved Ones
Some women decide to become surrogates for a loved one, a friend, or someone in their community. When a surrogate decides to carry the child of someone they know, this is called identified surrogacy. These women give their loved ones an incredible gift out of the goodness of their hearts.
With identified surrogacy, it is important to speak with mental health counselors to ensure all parties are ready for the Colorado surrogacy process.
- Women who Enjoy Being Pregnant
Some women simply enjoy being pregnant and are happy to be pregnant to carry someone else’s child with the help of gestational surrogacy. Not only do these women have the altruism needed for surrogacy, but they also enjoy the experience of being pregnant.
Women who become surrogates through a surrogacy agency must meet certain physical and mental surrogacy requirements. One of the most important eligibility requirements is that the surrogates must have had uncomplicated pregnancies. While we know that no pregnancy is easy, you must not have experienced medical complications during your past pregnancies if you want to become a surrogate.
This is for the health of both the surrogate and the baby. Surrogates need to be healthy and to be able to create a safe environment for the baby to grow and develop. Fortunately, surrogates with a history of healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies enjoy being pregnant. If this is you, consider helping a family in need.
- Women who are Highly Organized
There are a few things that surrogates need to keep track of during the surrogacy process. Surrogates need to prepare for screenings, medical appointments, treatments, prenatal or hormonal supplements, and more. Many surrogates are already efficient with their time and keep track of each task with ease. If you are not naturally organized, Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado can help you prepare for everything you need to do throughout the surrogacy process.
- Women who Want to Join a Community of Selfless Women
Surrogates are a group of women who enjoy a special sisterhood. Within our surrogacy agency or local support groups, you can enjoy getting to know altruistic women with a similar drive to give back and help others. Joining this community is a good way to make lasting friendships over a common bond.
