There are many reasons that a couple might choose surrogacy as a means to expand or start their family. There are many couples who, for one reason or another, are unable to get pregnant on their own and for these couples, surrogate mothers are a Godsend. A surrogate is a woman who has a fertilized egg implanted into her uterus through a procedure called in vitro fertilization. She then carries the baby to term and delivers a child to the intended parents.


Infertility is one of the main reasons that couples choose to use a surrogate mother to bring their child into the world. By using a surrogate, the couple will still able to be biologically related to the child. Even if the intended mother is physically unable to carry a pregnancy to term, the fertility specialist can use one of her eggs. If her eggs are not healthy enough to be used then a donor can be selected. The egg can then be fertilized with the intended father’s sperm. If his sperm is not healthy enough, a donor can be selected. There are many issues that can cause a couple to be infertile such as cancer or cancer treatment, exposure to environmental toxins, removal of reproductive organs due to disease, or unhealthy reproductive organs.


Same-sex couples may also choose to start their family via a surrogate. One or both of the partners may choose to sperm donate or an egg to be used in the conception of their child. Adoption can still be difficult for same-sex couples in some cases and that may lead the couple to choose surrogacy. Surrogacy also allows at least one partner in the relationship to be biologically related to the child that is conceived.


Advanced maternal age is another reason that a couple may choose to use a surrogate. Many people are waiting longer to get married and start a family. In some cases that may mean that the intended mother is unable to carry a baby to term. Advanced maternal age is linked to a number of birth defects and the intended mother may not want to risk that.


Other couples choose to use a surrogate because they are either unable or unwilling to step back from their careers. Perhaps they run their own business that is really taking off, or they are climbing the corporate ladder and maternity leave would derail their career. It is not uncommon for white-collar couples to use a surrogate so that they can start their family without having to slow down professionally.

No matter what the reason is for using a surrogate, the most important thing is for the intended parents and the surrogate to be compatible. It is also important to make sure that all of the legal agreements are properly taken care of to protect both the intended parents and the surrogate. The best way to make sure all of these things are taken care of properly is to find a surrogacy agency that will help to match surrogates with intended parents.
