Gestational surrogates choose to travel the path of surrogacy for a variety of different reasons. Many women want to share the joy they have found in becoming a parent by helping other couples who cannot have a child on their own. Other women have simply enjoyed being pregnant and miss the experience despite their own families being complete. Regardless of the reasons that led them to become surrogates in the first place, one common theme tends to unite surrogates after their first experience: many wish to do it again.
The question of when to become a surrogate again after successfully completing a healthy surrogate pregnancy is by and large an individual decision. Some women know immediately that they want to continue and jump right back in while others prefer to wait for a period of time after delivery. If you have experienced a happy and healthy surrogacy and would like to become a surrogate again, you should begin by taking the following points into consideration:
- Consult a physician. You may be emotionally ready to begin another surrogacy journey, but it is important to make sure your body is also ready. Schedule a thorough physical examination with your doctor to confirm you are in good health, both physically and mentally.
- Talk to your spouse and family. While surrogacy is a selfless gift to another couple, it is a gift that also impacts your spouse as well as your children and family. Talk with them about their experience with your past surrogacy and make sure you are all on the same page and share the same excitement for beginning another surrogacy journey.
- Meet with your surrogacy agency. Your agency is a wealth of knowledge as well as your one-stop shop for all surrogacy information. Your agency will be able to share real-life experiences of other surrogates who have had multiple surrogate pregnancies and help you get the ball rolling to match with another couple and start your journey over again.
