1. Open and Honest Communication

We believe the foundation of a successful surrogacy journey lies in open and honest communication. When considering potential intended parents, our suggestion is to look for clues in their profile around their communication style and it being a match for you, as in-depth conversations that delve into beliefs, expectations, and hopes for the surrogacy process will serve your relationship as pregnancy is a vulnerable time for everyone.

2. Shared Values and Beliefs

Seeking intended parents who share in their profile, an alignment with your own values and beliefs, as they can significantly contribute to a positive surrogacy experience. Whether it’s cultural, religious, views on termination or questions around post-birth contact.  Finding common ground as you read the intended parents’ profile, and then as you get to know them, confirming for yourself those values.

3. Respect for Boundaries and Autonomy

Respecting boundaries and autonomy is paramount in the surrogacy journey. Looking for intended parents with a profound respect for your physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. A mindful, empathetic approach to your needs and preferences is indicative of a strong foundation for a healthy surrogacy partnership.

Selecting intended parents who prioritize legal and emotional support throughout the surrogacy process is essential. A genuine commitment to navigating the legal complexities of surrogacy, as well as offering emotional support during the highs and lows of the journey, reflects a deep understanding of the significance of this shared experience.

5. Compatibility in Expectations

Ensure that your expectations regarding the surrogacy process, involvement during and after the pregnancy, and the nature of the relationship with the child align with those of the intended parents. Establishing a clear understanding of roles, responsibilities, and future involvement is vital for a cohesive and fulfilling surrogacy partnership.
