Can I go to my own OB once I am pregnant?

Yes, provided that your OB accepts the health insurance utilized for the pregnancy. Together, you and the Intended Parents will decide upon the physician that cares for you during pregnancy. Many Surrogates use the physician that delivered their own children.

Will I be taking injections?

Gestational Surrogates need to prepare their bodies for the embryo transfer.  You will require injections in order to help your uterus accept the embryo. The medical team will help you throughout your injectable period by providing a calendar with a clear timetable and dosages. Generally, you will have to take the injections through the first trimester.

I had my tubes tied. Can I still serve as a gestational surrogate?

Yes! You can still fulfill the qualifications for gestational surrogacy. The process does not use the fallopian tubes. Instead, the embryo(s) are placed directly into the Surrogate’s uterus during the embryo transfer phase.
