i have shared my story already.
briefly: i've done hysterectomy and don't have children. my option is either to use the service of surrogate mother or adopt a child.
Wanted to start this thread to know your opinion, opinion of people who has tried surrogacy and those who would like to try!
what are pluses and minuses of surrogacy? is it better to try trough clinic or try to find the mother by yourself?
and if try through clinic what to do when this procedure is illegal where you live?
will you go abroad?
I am a surrogate so I can't speak exactly from where you are coming from but I have done a lot of research prior to becoming a surrogate. I think the plus of surrogacy is that the child is biologically yours, is that important to you? I personally would not try to do independent surrogacy because if something goes wrong legally you may be in big trouble as far as getting custody of your own child. Like I said I am a surrogate not an intended parents but I would never try it without an agency. As far as it being illegal where you live I think it has to do with the state the surrogate delivers in because I am from California and it doesn't seem to matter where the IP's are from just where I have the baby. Anyhow if you are looking for a gestational carrier message me and I will give you the name of the agency I work with they've been amazing.
