One of our amazing GCs shares her experiences about being a repeat carrier. This is good information to know for anyone who is considering another journey! Check out her story:
Hi, I’m an experienced surrogate on the beginning of my second journey. I chose to become a surrogate mainly because of my pure joy in being pregnant. I also feel a sense of satisfaction in fulfilling another’s dream of having a family.
Our family is from southern Wisconsin. We both work full time with 2 young children. Our family is complete at 6, which includes our dog and cat. We enjoy the outdoors, whether it’s fishing, hiking, hunting, or just simply being outside. We are extremely lucky to have been matched with wonderful couples that have very similar personalities to my husband and myself.
Surrogacy can be a complicated process. So, working with the right match makes the process go a lot smoother. Both of my journeys took 2 rounds of IVF to get a successful pregnancy. Perseverance and patience aided in my journeys more than anything. There are some ups and downs, but the outcome makes everything worth it. Knowing you are playing a key role in someone’s life, while being mindful of one’s own health, is an important mindset to have.
This journey is one I would take many more times if possible. Happy incubating!
