Who are Intended Parents?
Intended Parents are those who seek to become parents through assisted reproductive technology such as surrogacy or egg/sperm donation. They may face infertility or medical challenges that prevent them from having a child through natural means. In this article, you will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be an Intended Parent and the journey involved.
Who are the Intended Parents and Why Do They Choose Surrogacy?
Intended Parents are individuals or couples who seek to start or grow their family through surrogacy They may face infertility or medical conditions that prevent them from having a child naturally. The bond between intended parents and their gestational carrier during the surrogacy journey can be strong and meaningful.
Today, surrogacy is becoming an increasingly popular option for beginning or expanding a family. Through surrogacy, parents can participate in the gestation and delivery of their child while having the option for a genetic connection to the child. The relationship between the intended parents and the gestational carrier often continues long after the pregnancy has ended. We know that the road to starting a family has been paved with many obstacles and setbacks. Throughout the entire surrogacy process, we at All Families Surrogacy will be there to answer your questions and provide you with updates.
