SURROGATE MOTHERS AND GESTATIONAL SURROGACY
Gestational surrogacy allows a woman to carry and deliver a child to whom she is not biologically related; this is a surrogate mother. As a Gestational Surrogate, you supply the “host uterus” for a couple or individual who could otherwise not become parents.
Becoming a surrogate mother is an extremely fulfilling experience. When you become a Gestational Surrogate with Creative Family Connections, you help a couple or intended parent bring their child into the world through our Gestational Surrogacy program. In Gestational Surrogacy, an embryo (created in a medical laboratory by the process of In Vitro Fertilization, or IVF is transferred to your uterus. You are not the genetic mother of the child because your eggs are not used. Rather, the embryo is created with the eggs of another woman – either the intended mother or a third party egg donor.
As a Gestational Surrogate, your primary role is to carry the baby safely to term. But your actual contribution is so much more. As a surrogate mother, you will enable the Intended Parents to experience the miracle of a pregnancy with you, including sharing the incredible joy that comes when you see the baby handed to the Intended Parents upon birth. It is only through the generosity of someone like you that the Intended Parents retain hope of fulfilling their dreams. Our Intended Parents truly understand and treasure this great gift.
Our Gestational Surrogates tell us that the experience changes their lives, too, that they feel fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to change someone’s life in such a fundamental way. Many also tell us that the experience provides an amazing “teaching” opportunity for their children, who witness and share in this family effort to help others build their family.
Creative Family Connections helps Intended Parents of all types, and from all over the world, realize their dream of creating families by matching them with you – the Gestational Surrogate. But our role does not end there. We remain involved and offer you and the Intended Parents personalized support throughout the entire process – from matching through delivery. In fact, you will also be matched with your own dedicated Creative Family Connections Case Manager, who will be there to support you from beginning to end, and our entire team will become connected with you and invest in your case. It takes an extraordinary person to be a Gestational Surrogate. We appreciate that, and hope that you will allow us to show you our appreciation by working with us in your gestational surrogacy journey. Become part of the CFC “family” and change someone’s life forever!
