Can I be a surrogate if I’m single? You can absolutely be a surrogate if you are single! Being in a relationship or married is not a requirement to be a surrogate.

We strongly recommend that this testing be completed before any physical contact.  The testing of any partners or even possible partners will be written in the contract that you will sign before embryo transfer happens.  This is so we can keep you, and the baby you will/are

Then 3 months later I find out I’m pregnant with my daughter who was born not only 1 year and 12days after her brother

This month we have a feature story sharing what being a surrogate means to them. What does surrogacy mean to you? —————————————- Welcome to the feature story that I always thought I wouldn’t do because my journey was so short and sweet.

It’s hard to organize my thoughts on the whole process and truly describe
