This is fascinating! Thanks for sharing! Surrogacy is such a wonderful and selfless thing to do!

For most *agencies* it's usually 35 years old. And I don't think miscarriage would cause you to not be a candidate unless it was due to some blood disorder or clotting disorders, etc. Things that would make carrying a pregnancy hard.

The placenta filters all the nutrients that flow to the baby, so its still possible to say pass liquor, drugs, etc to the baby because it can pass through the placenta, but your blood doesn't directly flow to the baby. Placenta's are so amazing.

Awe, well it's totally exciting! & I'm so sorry to hear about your loss

I'm 100% done with having my own babies.. which is why I decided to be a gestational surrogate. It's exciting!

I've always wanted to be a surrogate but they said that it's not a good idea because it means 4 c-sections for me since I want 3 of my own kids.

So I plan to donate eggs when I'm done breastfeeding/not planning on ttc.

I have two friends who have been surrogates and 4 friends who have donated eggs in the past year. Such a wonderful gift.
