Whether couples pursue surrogacy as a way to combat infertility or because of a preexisting condition (or two men seek to have a child together), surrogacy can be fraught with anxiety, concern, and fear of the unknown and it's easy to see why-how can anyone trust a virtual stranger to carry their baby for them?
Couples wonder if it's awkward to watch another woman pregnant with their child. And what would possess someone to be a surrogate mother in the first place? Successful Surrogacy: An Intended Parents' Guide to a Rewarding Relationship With Their Surrogate Mother
is the only book of its kind in the world of infertility resources. It provides intended parents a first-hand look at the gestational surrogacy process from start to finish from a surrogate mother's perspective and addresses their concerns and questions every step of the way. Written by Susan MZ Fuller, a seven-time gestational surrogate mother for six different couples, Successful Surrogacy
is an essential resource for couples considering or currently using a surrogate mother to build their families. While it's is true that surrogacy is one of life's most emotionally intense events to go through, it can also be one the most uniquely rewarding and joyous experiences for couples and surrogates alike. Successful Surrogacy
helps couples select a surrogate who is the best match for them and then candidly walks them through the surrogacy process from the surrogate mother's point of view, from deciding to work together through the birth of their baby and beyond. The book explains each phase of surrogacy in detail, starting with initial medical evaluations and undertaking a medicated cycle leading to the embryo transfer and elaborates on what a surrogate mother is going through physically, emotionally, and socially so intended parents can better understand and relate to their surrogate mother. The surrogate's perspective on the phases of pregnancy as well as the birth and afterward is also detailed in chronological order as the surrogacy journey unfolds. Formatted as a series of probing questions and discussion items for couples to explore together, Successful Surrogacy
gives parents-to-be a unique guidebook for exploring their own thoughts and feelings on the various aspects of surrogacy. The book also gives a surrogate's perspective on the same topics so parents can consider the issues from both sides and if necessary, broach individual topics with their own surrogate mother, allowing them to more easily develop and strengthen their relationship with her. Successful Surrogacy: An Intended Parents' Guide to a Rewarding Relationship With Their Surrogate Mother
is a quick yet detailed read that is designed to be a handy step-by-step resource and discussion toolkit that couples can consult throughout the phases of their own surrogate pregnancy experience. It's also a wealth of information for loved ones, friends, and family members supporting any couple embarking on the surrogacy process. You are not alone on this journey.
