.....To our future Intended Parents…
You’ve made some huge decisions – you want to be a parent, you’ve contracted with an Agency, met doctors, learned the IVF process, and made arrangements for travel. Now it’s time to match with your surrogate carrier.
Meeting with your Surrogacy Journeys representative will help you prepare for your match meeting with a potential surrogate. This is your opportunity to craft your personal profile. You will be asked about your family and the family you’re hoping to create, as well as questions about potential medical issues and legal preferences. These are questions you’ll want to review before your meeting, and it’s important to have an honest discussion with your partner and agency representative. The clearer you can be before your match is made, the easier and quicker your journey will be.
Another aspect of preparing for your surrogate match meeting is considering the qualities of your preferred surrogate match. You’ll be in each other’s lives for at least a year! We encourage you to think about psychological aspects, legal considerations, values and personal preferences. Your agency representative will offer suggestions about which items should be non-negotiable and which may require more flexibility. Doing this work will help you prepare the appropriate questions for your surrogate.
Potential questions the surrogate could ask will likely be similar to yours. She’ll want to know about you and perhaps why you are choosing surrogacy to build your family. She may ask about your expectations of her, and your hopes for communication during the process.
You’ve probably noticed that communication is a common theme in a surrogacy match. Knowing that our process takes this into account will make your match meeting as straightforward as possible.
Communication will lay the foundation for shared expectations. You have the option to decide the frequency and type of communication that you prefer. Every match is different, and our goal is to respect and uphold these individual needs.You and your surrogate will have a whole team of people who are here answer questions and offer support and guidance every step of the way.
Our mission at Surrogacy Journeys is providing exceptional services for families who acquire guidance to become parents. We thrive to make your journey to parenthood as smooth as possible with our experienced and compassionate on call team.
