YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE!


The Biggest Ask forum will be carefully monitored by admin. Users may be asked to re phrase their comments or questions if it comes across as insensitive or harsh. You must be signed in to contribute. Click here to register.

There are two major rules enforced:

  1. Be respectful
    Our aim is to be a place where intended parents and surrogates can get unbiased information about surrogacy in peace. Please refrain from judging others or criticising their choices. Our admin will follow closely and delete any disrespectful comments.
  2. Respect each other's privacy
    Being part of this community requires mutual trust. Authentic and honest discussions will make this forum amazing, but many things said might be private and sensitive.

What's shared here should stay here.

How the Forum works:

  1. Users can earn points:
    • 5 points for starting a conversation that is relevant to surrogacy (limited to one question a day users can ask more questions but they just get 5 points for one)
    • Awarding 5 points for answering a question AND getting a "like". Every additional "like" the person gets earns them 1 additional point.
    • Every week, all users are awarded 5 likes to distribute as they choose. The likes don't roll over so it's just 5 likes a week that they can distribute.
  2. Once a user earns 100 points, we get notified and you'll receive a $100 amazon gift card.
  3. Getting a certain number of points will get you the rank of "experienced surrogate" or "experienced intended parent".

    What are some important questions you asked during your match call? I’m creating a list for my next match meeting and I don’t want to miss anything important!

    I think a big one (especially right now) is making sure you and the potential IPs are on the same page re: selective reduction, number of transfers, what happens in the event of an ectopic (or anything else that would cause the pregnancy to be nonviable). It’s not fun to talk about, but so important to discuss, especially now in specific states.

      I couldn’t agree more! That is definitely a big one on my list!

    I also want to mention you should ask how much communication they are wanting and the type of relationship they want. I almost just broke my match because it was going weeks without responses from my IP and I need more than that. I want to build a relationship. Not everyone is on the same page when it comes to that.

      Oh absolutely! Talking about communication expectations is one of my first and most important questions! I definitely want to make sure were on the same page with that! Thanks! 🙂
