What Role Does a Surrogate Mother Play in Colorado Surrogacy?
If you intend to choose surrogacy, you can choose to be either a gestational surrogate or a traditional surrogate mother. The difference between these definitions depends on whether or not you choose to donate your eggs to the pregnancy or not. In addition, many women choose to become surrogate mothers for their own reasons, such as choosing to share the gift of life and family with intended parents who may not be able to biologically create a child of their own.
Who are the Intended Parents and Why Do They Choose Surrogacy?
Intended parents are the names given to the family for who the surrogate mother is carrying the baby. Intended parents may have donated biological material, such as sperm and eggs, to be made into an embryo to be implanted into the surrogate mother. If the intended mother’s egg was used, it would be known as gestational surrogacy, where the surrogate mother only carries the child to term, but the biological material that creates the embryo is not her own.
Types of Intended Parents In Colorado Surrogacy
Intended parents can be married or single, young or old, of any socioeconomic status, sexuality, or gender, but no matter who they are, they will love and care for the gift of a child you are giving them with such ferocity and joy. If you are a surrogate mother, you may have a preference for who you would like to help most. For instance, you may have been raised by a single mother and wish to help a single intended mother. If this is the case, you can speak with your caseworker at Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado and ask for preference in matching with a single intended mother over intended couples. You may wish to help a same-sex intended parent couple or an older intended parent couple. If so, your caseworker can help you to match with any of these families, so long as you let them know when helping to match you.
Choosing Surrogacy in Colorado
There are two types of surrogacy, gestational surrogacy, and traditional surrogacy, however, traditional surrogacy has been banned across the US. If you are considering gestational surrogacy, this means you will not be donating your eggs, and all biological materials making up the embryo are from the intended parents, the people intending to raise the child. You will be carrying and growing the baby, but you will not be one of the child’s biological parents.
