As a surrogate mother, women have the opportunity to help someone else complete the family of their dreams.
While there’s no way to avoid the emotional and physical recovery a surrogate mother will face after the delivery — the EXIT (aka after the delivery
and giving the parents a beautiful child
) … is one of gracefulness and a sense of
accomplishment to be proud of.
A Surrogate Mother can truly find her voice at this stage of the Surrogacy Journey. Many individuals hold strong opinions about Surrogacy, and Surrogate Mothers, specifically, regardless of how knowledgeable of Surrogacy they might be. Justly, it is hard for an outsider to understand. Every Surrogate Mother approaches her Surrogacy Journey in a different way.
First things first, it's not the Surrogate's baby. Moreover, it's not about the Surrogate, it's about helping someone else to have a family; the very thing that is already the center of the Surrogates life. And most importantly Surrogate Mothers have had time to reflect and are educated within their own pregnancies.
A Surrogate Mother carries confidence in her decision to ultimately help someone’s dream come true and she understands the leaps she would bound to if she had been unable to have her own children.
Is It Hard?
Emotions are always involved but detachment is the unselfish and empathetic qualities of a Surrogate Mother to begin with.
Surrogate Mothers are intensely fulfilled by knowing that they gave a
beautiful gift to someone who wanted a child so badly, but they are still
tired, hormonal and adjusting to life post-pregnancy.
