I really want to become a surrogate. How can I find intended parents?
Start by talking to VitaNova – we’d love to hear from you, and it’s our mission to focus on you as the potential surrogate (or egg donor), and provide information as well as multiple agency options, around the United States.
Once you’ve completed our questionnaire, we’ll put your profile to carefully selected, top-rated agencies, on your behalf. This will save you having to apply to multiple agencies, filling in similar paperwork multiple times, get blood work multiple times, provide multiple health records – we do all the logistics work for you.
Can I become a surrogate for a friend or family member?
Absolutely, but it’s still important to have legal documents in place. It will save a lot of heartache and issues later on – I always say that luck favors the prepared.
What happens if I don’t become pregnant?
This is a common situation, and often heartbreaking for both the surrogate as well as the IPs. Again, it depends on the contract, and often the IPs would like to try again, because connecting with a surrogate can be so difficult.
For the surrogate, I would try to reduce stress for the week immediately following the implantation. Take a week off, kick up your feet, sleep lots, etc. Your body’s doing an amazing job, regardless of the outcome, and stress is never helpful.
If, after a few tries, you’re still not pregnant then the contract may be terminated – again this depends on the contract and what the surrogate and IP decide. This is why at VitaNova we really encourage that the potential surrogate and IPs discuss all the potential difficult situations which could arise. That way, the agreement is drawn up when both parties are able to think clearly, and discuss options that work for both of them.
Growing a child for other people is an incredible gift, but surrogates should ensure that every detail – however granular, or difficult – is discussed and factored into the contract, prior to moving forward.
