Becoming a Gestational Carrier

A Gestational Carrier - Family Formers | Surrogacy & Egg Donation Agency
Becoming a Gestational Carrier (GC)

A Gestational Carrier is a woman who agrees to carry a child for someone else. The GC is not genetically related to the child. The IPs will have an IVF cycle providing their own eggs and sperm (or donor egg or donor sperm) in order to create viable embryos to transfer to the gestational carrier.

Why be a Gestational Carrier (GC)?

Some women become gestational carriers because:
  • They have had enjoyable, uncomplicated pregnancies.
  • The financial freedom it gives, allowing some moms to stay at home with their children and contribute financially to the family.
  • The opportunity for paying it forward/blessing someone, regardless of race, religion, political views, or education level.

A Surrogates Story

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 on the shoes of many of the couples GC’s help build their families. How can I not be able to have children?
