Choosing surrogacy is a life changing decision. Although many are blessed with the love and support of their friends and families, couples often find themselves struggling without the presence of someone who has embarked on the same journey and truly understands the bumps and excitement that happens along the way. Sometimes, you just need to communicate with someone who has been in your shoes.
Although you may not have someone in your day to day life who has experienced surrogacy, you are not alone. Thanks to the Internet, you have countless networks and virtual communities right at your fingertips, full of other surrogate mothers and couples who have turned to surrogacy.
We know searching the web can be daunting, especially with matters of the heart – that’s why we’ve already done the research for you. If you find yourself needing or wanting to connect with others who have gone through or are going through surrogacy, we recommend the following communities:
