Most people new to commercial surrogacy would probably view surrogate motherhood as a decision one woman makes to help another family. This is partially untrue. There are many family requirements when it comes to surrogacy. It is important that the surrogate’s entire family is supportive of her during the process. Surrogacy does not just affect the woman who is pregnant. It affects her partner, her children, and to a lesser degree, her extended family. All of these issues will have an effect on your partner and children. Who need to be your main surrogacy support group. They will have to go through the pangs of a pregnancy with you. Without the additional family member coming home at the end of the journey. I hope with time your mother in law will finally accept your decision and decided otherwise. For the time being do not stress about it.
