Your Surrogacy Team
Surrogacy is a unique way for healthy women to serve and provide for couples who cannot have children of their own. Although pregnancy isn’t always enjoyable or easy, choosing to become a surrogate mother has many benefits and is one of the most unique jobs that a woman can have. The key to having success as a surrogate mother is finding a great agency that will provide you with a helpful and supportive surrogacy team to guide you throughout the journey. Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado provides women with the resources they need to start the surrogacy process and connects surrogate mothers with intended parents. If you’re interested in becoming a surrogate mother, here is how to connect with a great surrogacy team and get started with the surrogacy process.
What is a Surrogacy Team?
When you contact Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, you will be connected with staff members from our surrogacy agency that will help answer any questions you have related to surrogacy and help you determine if you are eligible to apply. This consultation is completely free and is very helpful for women who aren’t sure about pursuing surrogacy or don’t know if they are physically able to become surrogate mothers. If you are able to move forward with surrogacy after the consultation, you will be able to meet the surrogacy team at Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado. This group of individuals will help you understand what the agency provides and will provide you with an agreement to sign. Additionally, your surrogacy team will help you find a set of intended parents to work for. Your surrogacy team exists to guide you through the surrogacy process and consists of different individuals who are capable of providing you with different expertise that will be helpful as you navigate each step.
What Happens During the Surrogacy Process?
You may be wondering what aspects of the surrogacy process you will need a surrogacy team to guide you through. Things can get a little complicated when it comes to surrogacy, so having a surrogacy team to guide you is the best way to navigate any complications with minimal confusion. One of the major steps in your surrogacy journey will be to draft and sign a surrogacy agreement with the intended parents. In this agreement, your compensation as a surrogate mother will be determined, and details surrounding the surrender of the child at the end of the process, specific requirements that the intended parents may want you to fulfill, and other important details are included in this agreement. Having a surrogacy team to help you figure out what is important to include as a surrogate mother will ensure minimal conflict or confusion between you and the intended parents in the future. Your surrogacy team will also be able to help explain the In Vitro Fertilization process and support you throughout your pregnancy.
What is In Vitro Fertilization?
You will undergo a process known as In Vitro Fertilization through gestational surrogacy. Through this method of impregnation, the intended parents will visit a fertility clinic where their sperm and egg will be collected. The clinic will fertilize the egg with the sperm, and the consequent embryo will be implanted into your uterus, and you will hopefully become pregnant. Oftentimes, many embryos are transferred into the surrogate mother’s uterus to ensure that at least one of them will cause pregnancy, but this also means that there is a higher chance of giving birth to more than one child at a time. Although this might deter some women, it is often not a huge concern for surrogate mothers because the ability to provide a family for a couple that is unable to start one on their own is such an amazing opportunity, and there is also compensation provided in most cases.
How Do I Begin the Surrogacy Process?
If you are interested in pursuing Colorado surrogacy, you will have to first determine if you are physically able to become a surrogate mother. On Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado’s website, there is a list of requirements that surrogate mothers must fulfill in order to apply to be a surrogate mother. If you fulfill those qualifications, you will be connected with the agency and undergo further assessment. If you pass the medical and psychological exam that the agency will conduct, you will be able to move forward with the surrogate process. If this is something that you are interested in doing, please contact Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, where our staff is ready and willing to answer your questions and help guide you through the surrogacy process.
