Preparing To Become A Surrogate Mother
Now that you’ve decided to become a surrogate mother, it’s time for you to prepare. One portion of learning how to become a surrogate mother is the preparation process.

Get A Surrogate’s Perspective
The first way to prepare in becoming a surrogate mother is to get the perspective of another surrogate. To make sure you are ready for this transition in your life, it’s important to talk to someone else who has gone through the process. Since you’ve never become a surrogate before, you should speak to someone who is going through the process or has completed it. There’s nothing better than first hand experience to help you figure out what to expect from your experience. In addition, even though you were pregnant previously, it’s a vastly different process and it’s good to be able to talk to someone about carrying another family’s child for nine months.
Talk To Your Doctor
Before you take these initial steps toward helping a family who has always wanted a child, speak to your general practitioner. In addition, you should have a full body examination to ensure your body is prepared to go through this. Consulting your doctor about this important medical decision will ensure that you are mentally and physically ready for this process. You don’t want to deal with serious side effects that can prohibit you from going about your normal activities. In addition, you’ll want to speak to your gynecologist and a therapist as well. A gynecologist will make sure your body is prepared and a therapist to ensure your mental capacity is ready.
Talk To Your Loved Ones
Lastly, make sure that this decision is okay with your loved ones. You’ll be carrying a baby inside of you for nine months and you’ll need some help getting to and from your doctor’s appointments. This decision doesn’t just apply to you. It also applies to your family as well. Make sure that your loved ones will help you and support you. You don’t want to go into the surrogate process without any support nor do you want to go in with the knowledge your loved ones disapprove. While you won’t get the approval you want from everyone, it’s important that your closest loved ones support you.
