Chatima is a working mom of three children. She and her husband, based in Atlanta, enjoy traveling, spending time with family, eating out, watching football and baseball, and doing home projects.
I had always planned on being a surrogate for a dear friend of mine who is unable to carry a baby herself. When she decided she didn’t want to have kids anymore, I forgot about surrogacy until another friend completed her own surrogacy journey and I reached out to her for more info. Having my own fertility issues and knowing what that’s like, I wanted to help someone else achieve their dream of having kids of their own.
I looked around at a few different agencies websites, but I loved how CFC outlined the process for surrogates on their website. After reaching out and learning that a lot of the employees have been surrogates themselves, it made me feel like I was in good hands…and I was!
My surrogate pregnancy was like all of my other pregnancies, with the exception of the medications before transfer. I actually had less morning sickness this time around and got a lot more attention because everyone was so amazed that I was a surrogate. The journey was amazing mostly because of CFC. My case managers were very attentive before, during and even after the pregnancy. They always asked how I was doing and I never felt like an incubator.
Seeing my IP’s gush over their baby for the first time gave me all the feels. It reminded me why I went through this journey and why surrogacy is such an amazing gift.
