    Hi everyone! I hope you all are good. I went with surrogacy to get my first child. A daughter. It was a clinic in Europe and I had a great experience with it. It didn’t drain me financially. It even provided some really good services alongside the treatment. There was free food, transport, and accommodation for my stay! However, now I’m thinking of another baby. I’m unable to conceive myself so surrogacy is my only option again. I’m wondering if its worth it? Getting another child? It’s something I’m talking to my husband about. The expense, although reasonable compared to many clinics, is still there. I want to know your thoughts on this. Would you suggest me to go for it?

    Hey, Victoria. What a coincidence! You have the same problem as mine. I had my first baby through surrogacy from the same place. I, too, am thinking of having another baby. Actually, my husband has been dropping hints that he wants another child. So I started considering it. Our previous surrogacy didn’t cost us much. We can easily afford it. What surrogacy gave me was the most precious gift of all time. No money can be equal to that. I think you should go for it. They are so affordable I’m sure you won’t have to worry about the expenses at all. I feel so good after reading this post. I feel like I have a buddy in this. Thank you for this. Good luck with whatever you decide. Do let us know what you are going for though.

    The expense factor is there. It’s all your decision. Whatever you want to do. It’s going to be your thing. I don’t think you should worry about the money. This is only when you have the money. You don’t have to worry about anything my friend. Everything is going to be alright my friend. You shouldn’t worry about anything. I wish you’ll always be happy. Thanks a lot.

    There are a few surrogates that have completed the process a second and sometimes a third time. If somebody has a good experience and they enjoy the process, it’s not uncommon that they will do it again – sometimes it will be for another family, or it could be a sibling project for the same family. If the intended parent had one child and they would like to have another baby, it’s not uncommon that a surrogate will be willing to do this again for them, to have a sibling. If the first family feels that they are complete, if a surrogate wants to do it again, they will just do it for another family. The agency also has surrogates that do it one time – they do something they’ve always wanted to do – helping someone have a child. As long as the OB clears the surrogate, they are medically OK to have another pregnancy. Many surrogates keep in touch with the family. Although it depends on the location – it might be different states or even countries. Between the Skype and email and internet, the intended parents are definitely in communication throughout the process, they are involved as much as the surrogate will allow them to be, they want to go through this as a team. The intended parents want to share the experience as much as possible – things like the baby’s first kick, seeing the ultrasounds, being included as much as possible. They will want to be there for the birth. The vast majority of surrogates and intended parents stay in touch, and a lot of people become very good friends, and still stay in touch.
