SURROGATES AND GESTATIONAL SURROGACY
Gestational surrogacy is when a woman carries a baby or babies (in the case of a twin surrogate pregnancy) that she is not biologically related to. As a gestational surrogate, you supply the “host uterus” or “oven,” as we like to say, for a couple or individual who could otherwise not become parents to their biological child! We work with intended parents and surrogates of all different backgrounds and help them on their surrogacy journey.
Becoming a surrogate for someone in need is a beautiful experience. When you become a surrogate with Creative Family Connections, you are helping a couple or single intended parent bring their baby or babies into the world through a surrogate pregnancy. Our intended parents create their own embryos in a medical laboratory via in vitro fertilization, or IVF, with their IVF clinic. A gestational surrogate is never biologically related to the baby or babies. The intended parent embryos are created with the eggs of another woman – either the intended mother, or an egg donor. Intended parents or an intended parent may also work with a sperm donor to help them on their journey.
As a gestational surrogate, your role is to carry your intended parents’ baby or babies safely to delivery. We’re here to fulfill someone’s dream to be a parent after all. But your decision to help someone is truly so much more. As a surrogate, you enable intended parents to experience the miracle of a pregnancy with you and your family, including sharing the incredible joy that comes when you see the baby with its biological parents upon birth. It is only through the generosity and compassion of someone like you that our intended parents remain hopeful in their ability to have a biological child. Our intended parents are extremely grateful for women like you who are willing to help them become parents!
Our gestational surrogates tell us that a surrogacy journey (or a few!) changes their lives too. They feel fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to change someone’s life in such a huge way. Many surrogates also tell us that they are able to lead by example in showing their children what giving back can look like in helping others build their family.
Creative Family Connections helps intended parents of all backgrounds, from all over the world, realize their dream of creating families by matching them with you – the gestational surrogate. But our role in the journey doesn’t end there. We provide you and your intended parents full support throughout the entire process – from matching through post-delivery. In fact, you will also be matched with your own dedicated case manager, who will be there to support you from beginning to end. Our Creative Family Connections team works together and is always rooting for everybody in their surrogacy journeys. It really takes an extraordinary superhero to be a surrogate. We hope to be able to show you how incredible gestational surrogacy can be in changing someone’s life forever. Become a part of our CFC family and take the first step.
