Kaitlyn, a mother of two young boys working as a social worker for a school district, recounts her decision to become a surrogate. Her motivation stems from her enjoyment of pregnancy, her love for family, and the desire to help others build theirs. She discusses her close relationship with the intended parents (IPs) and the profound emotional experience of witnessing the baby’s mother catching her child during birth. Caitlyn reflects on how surrogacy transformed her perspective on self-esteem and body positivity. She chose to collaborate with an agency, All Families Surrogacy, for its local presence, emphasis on equity, supportive communication, and personalized matching process, which made her surrogacy journey feel more thoughtful than transactional.
