Would IP consider someone like me?
I have wanted to be a surrogate ever since I was 18 years old, but wanted to wait until I was finished growing my own family and in a stable position in life. That time has come, and I’m looking to start my journey no earlier than one year from now. I’m certain I would be a great surrogate, as I am so passionate about pregnancy, birth, and babies. I am healthy, and have brought 4 incredible little girls into the world. But there is one problem that I am worried will inevitably keep intended parents from ever selecting me. My problem is, I had a complicated first pregnancy. My first pregnancy was identical twins. They shared a placenta, and one baby was IUGR due to the uneven split of the placenta. This caused them to be born early at 32 weeks. I did not go into labor, but delivered via c-section due to her growth restriction. In addition, the twin pregnancy also gave me preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes. That being said, I was given immediate medical clearance to continue growing my family as my medical team determined that the likelihood of those complications occurring again are no higher than they would be for any average woman. Additionally, both twins were and are typically developing and healthy after outgrowing their prematurity. And I did grow my family. I since have had two more babies, both born at 40 weeks or later via VBAC, with absolutely uncomplicated pregnancies and births. My question is, would this medical history keep all families from selecting me to be their surrogate?
Thank you for reading all of that and thank you in advance for your honest responses!
