A surrogate helps enable the dream of a family to become a reality for couples or singles and sometimes it can feel like you’re going through it alone. Multiple decisions need to be made each step of the way, and if you don’t have a good girlfriend to lean on and ask for advice, you might not know where to start.
Finally, you have to have someone knowledgeable and experienced in your corner.
You need a place to go to help you learn about the process and make an informed decision that is best for you at the specific time in your journey, and that’s precisely what I can help with.
Find a deeper understanding of what being a surrogate entails, and learn about the processes that take place during the journey. I’ll give you an inside look at how a surrogate handles all kinds of situations from that first positive test to birth plans and everything in between. You’ll even get to follow along on a two-time proven surrogate’s journey to see what else happens behind the scenes.
Hi, I’m JoAn.
I’m the founder of Girlfriends’ Guide to Surrogacy, and I’m currently on my third on-going surrogacy journey.
I know it sounds wild, but becoming a surrogate is something that just sort of happened to me. One day I was talking about it with my husband Brad, and before I knew it, three months later I was pregnant with my first surrogate baby!
Pregnancy isn’t nearly as tough as the parenting gig, so I’m more than happy to help bring joy into the lives of new parents. I send them off with a thumbs up and hearty “Good Luck!”
Seeing the new parents with their baby (or babies!) for the first time is my ultimate favorite part of this experience. It’s incomparable to anything else. My second favorite part – bedrest after embryo transfer.
Having gone through this process multiple times, I have first-hand knowledge of what it takes to complete a surrogate journey and how to handle everything that comes with it. I have a clear understanding of the best way to communicate with intended parents from other countries and proven practices when it comes to the journey as a whole.
