I've always wanted to be a surrogate mother.
My biggest fear in life is not being able to have children - pregnancy and childbirth has always been so fascinating to me, and to not be able to experience that must be devastating. I'm "just a kid" right now, but I would love to give the gift of life to someone who isn't able to experience it first hand. I don't know when or where I'll be in five, ten, twenty years, but surrogacy is something I'm very interested in.
I am not a surrogate but I am an "intended parent" with an incredible surrogate partner. The experience has been life-changing for me and my husband. Our surrogate "H" is a truly wonderful human being, and I've learned so much from being exposed to her generosity, life philosophy and intelligence. She has told me that wanted to be a surrogate since she first learned about it in high school, and now being a nursing student, finds it an incredible learning experience as well.
As a woman has just started to look into the idea of using a surrogate due me and my partners own problems conceiving...can I just say it is incredible and amazing to see how selfless all you women are it truly is inspiring.
Hi, I see this is an older thread but me and my husband are seriously thinking about trying to find a host surrogate with ivf so the baby would genetically be ours. I have had 4 miscarriages in a year with no cause found (age 30 and 31 so I think still relatively young). Our third loss was a 'normal' fetus and all my losses have had heartbeats which have just stopped at around 8 weeks. It seems pretty hard to find a surrogate in the uk but I have found some success stories!
i would love to be a surrogate, i dont think i could use my eggs though but i could do GS, i have 2 beautiful children and to be able to give somebody a child is fantastic i have no idea how to go about it though as i cannot seem to find somewhere to find IPs to talk to, im 21 now and have no partner though (we split up before my daughter was born, had sex when my daughter was 6 months old, hence my sons conception and are still no longer together) but in the future i may want other children so i am in two minds whether to wait a while as i wouldnt want to not be able to have more kids myself in the future if something where to go wrong. x
