Welcome to JM ladies. I am not a surrogate but I do know a few mommies here on JM that have used a surrogate to create the family that they dream of. I commend you all whether you are just thinking about it or have already been through the process.

I myself could see myself doing this, but my DH is dead set against it. The gift of life is amazing.

Why did you decide to become a surrogate? Was it to help someone you know or for another reason?

I decided to become a surrogate because I myself have fertility issues. I have to use IVF to have children and if that didn't work I would need a surrogate or I would have to adopt.

I did it because it was something I felt I was born to do. My family is complete. But I have a perfect uterus and have no issues getting pregnant. I won't do it forever, and I am limited because of csections, but I just love being pregnant. And the best thing is, I am helping create life for someone. It is AMAZING!

I admire surrogate moms. Being pregnant is no joke, much more delivering a kid, and they have no qualms doing it for other people.

I did it b/c my child is the biggest blessing in my life and I couldn't imagine a day w/o his smile or laughter or "I love you mommy (s)" I do it free b/c I believe that what the agencies charge people is outrageous!!!

I decided to do it for a really good friend of mine who is gay and has tried surrogacy twice before, she miscarried both times. He and his partner deserves a baby and they both are two of the most amazing people I know. I think giving someone the gift of life is just awesome and I'm so grateful I'm able to do it!
