The Top 3 Reasons Why Intended Parents Choose Gestational Surrogacy 

There are so many hopeful parents who want a family of their own. Some may try for years without success. Others may be part of the LGBT community. Yet, there is one thing all of these parents have in common. They aren’t able to have a family the way they want. They need extra help to make their dreams come true.

Asking for help can be very hard. Maybe you don’t want to reveal that you are struggling. Maybe you don’t want to seem bothersome to anybody. But, building a family is not an easy task, and there’s no shame in seeking help when you need it. Thanks to how society, medicine and science has evolved over the years, there are several available options when it comes to family planning. One of these options is gestational surrogacy.

If you are exploring the ways that you can have the family you’ve always wanted, Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada is here to help. Here are the top three  reasons why intended parents choose gestational surrogacy to grow their family. 

  • You have a Medical or Health Condition

Unfortunately, there are health or medical conditions that can make pregnancy challenging or impossible. Some of these may include, but are not limited to:

  • Endometriosis 
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Cancer
  • Infertility 
  • Autoimmune Diseases (i.e. Lupus, diabetes, etc.)

If you struggle with any of the above conditions, or one that is not listed, know that you are not alone. We understand and empathize with the disappointment of not being able to have a family naturally. Gestational surrogacy provides you with a way to have a child through using your eggs and sperm, respectively, through a process known as in vitro fertilization (IVF). If either of you are unable to use your eggs or sperm, you can use a donor or an egg or sperm bank.

  • You Chose Gestational Surrogacy for Personal Reasons

Choosing gestational surrogacy is a personal decision. Only the intended parents involved know about the loss, grief, and the hopelessness that may come after many tries to start a family. These experiences can be heart wrenching for many women who hoped to have a baby on their own.  But not all hope is lost.

Gestational surrogacy gives women the opportunity to grow a family, just in a different way. It provides both intended parents with the chance to share a genetic link with their baby. With the right surrogate, you’ll be able to walk alongside her and be involved every step of the way. Choosing a different way to start your family does not mean it is less than anyone else’s, and doesn’t make the child any less yours. 

  • You are a Same Sex Couple or Individual

Nowadays, we know love has no boundaries and we can freely love who we want to. We also know that families come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. The majority of the intended parents seeking to grow their family through gestational surrogacy are same sex couples and individuals. Not only does gestational surrogacy allow LGBT intended parents to have the family they wouldn’t otherwise be able to have, but it also allows them to share a genetic connection with their child.

What’s more, Nevada is a surrogacy-friendly state to same sex couples and individuals. The surrogacy process works the same for them as it would any other intended parent, and same sex intended parents are allowed to put their names on their baby’s birth certificate. So, if you are a prospective intended parent hoping to start your family, and you are a same sex couple or individual — gestational surrogacy is an option!

If you and your partner are ready to be parents there is nothing stopping you now. With the right match your dream of growing a family will become a reality.
