Most GCs I speak to about surrogacy, say that they would like to be one because they love to be pregnant and have completed their families. Other ones just want to help another family have their children.
For me, these reasons are true, but my story goes a little deeper. When I was 17 years old, my OBGYN told me he didn’t think I’d be able to have children. Without any valid reason or testing, this was a random thought that he blurted out to me during a visit. At a young age, for a moment, I was in the shoes of many of the couples GC’s help build their families. How can I not be able to have children? I wanted to get married and have kids one day. And then, I just couldn’t? That simple?
I got married young and did have my children. In fact, I prove that OBGYN wrong 3 times. All 3 of my children, were conceived, carried, and delivered without any sign of hiccup along the way. I believe his words helped me cherish pregnancy even more than I would have, had they never been said to me.
