You Are Selfless
Becoming a parent is one of the most life-changing occasions in a person’s life, and surrogate mothers play arguably the largest role in making that a reality. If you have always wanted to make this kind of impact in someone else’s life, you have the selflessness required to become a surrogate. From initial meetings to final delivery, surrogacy is an arduous process that can take more than a year to complete, and selfless surrogates understand that it isn’t about them going into the process.
You Are Here for the Right Reasons
Yes, one of the benefits of surrogacy is undoubtedly the compensation that surrogate mothers receive. However, if you only want to become a surrogate for the pay, surrogacy may not be best for you. Rather than view surrogacy as a form of income, our surrogate mothers at Lotus Eilte view surrogacy as an irreplicable gift that can quite literally change eternity. When you help intended parents accomplish their dreams of having a child, you are making a massive impact on the world.
You Enjoy Pregnancy
As odd as it may sound to some people, there are plenty of women out there who enjoyed their pregnancy. Every surrogate mother at Lotus Eilte has to have completed one successful live birth with no major complications before becoming a surrogate, and if you enjoyed the journey of your previous pregnancy, you would make a great surrogate mother. It’s a journey unlike anything else, and if you’re not in a place to grow your own family but want to play a part in helping others, becoming a surrogate may be the perfect solution.
You Have a Strong Support System
We don’t have to remind you that pregnancy can be difficult. However, that is even more so the case during surrogacy. Surrounding yourself with a surrogate support system is crucial to having a successful surrogacy. Having friends and family members available for guidance, assistance, or just soothing conversation can be invaluable for surrogate mothers. The team at Lotus Eilte is available as a support system, as are the intended parents, but having people you can turn to in your everyday life can make a huge difference.
You Are Organized
Surrogacy doesn’t just come together — it takes months of planning, interviews, meetings, and more before you even begin the pregnancy process. Throughout pregnancy, it’s imperative to track important pregnancy metrics, keep up with doctor’s visits, and maintain your everyday life at home, all the while planning for your impending delivery. Because of this, surrogate mothers must have strong organizational skills to be able to balance so many things at once.
You Communicate Often and Efficiently
At this point, you already know just how impactful surrogacy is for the lives of the intended parents. Imagine another woman carrying what will become your entire world in a matter of months — wouldn’t you want to know everything that’s happening along the way? Surrogate mothers must communicate with the intended parents, surrogate agency, and doctors throughout the entire process to ensure a sound delivery. From new baby kicks to growing baby bumps, make sure the intended parents are included in the process as much as possible.
You Maintain Good Health
While meeting certain health metrics are a requirement to become a surrogate at Lotus Eilte, it’s important that surrogate mothers maintain healthy habits before, during, and after the pregnancy — both for your sake and the baby’s. No matter how busy it can become, it’s important not to neglect your physical and mental health. Remember to rely on the intended parents, your support group, and our team at Lotus Eilte if you need help throughout the process. From receiving meals from family friends to discussing difficulties and successes in your pregnancy, use those around you for help.
