The topic of surrogacy is very difficult psychologically. Surrogate mothers often need assistance and consultations, and so do the would-be genetic parents.
There are several rather widespread psychological problems that to some extent are experienced by many couples who are getting ready for the surrogate program. We will name some of the fears:
- the fear that a surrogate mother will not give the baby to its genetic parents after delivery;
- the assumption of the would-be parents that the child carried by another woman will look like her;
- the apprehension of the would-be parents that they will not be able to love the child with all their hearts because it was carried by a surrogate mother.
Although these and similar doubts are rather frequent, they have no solid foundation. A professional psychologist working with such cases can help you to overcome these negative thoughts.
Yet, it should be remembered that not all psychologists, even the most experienced, have worked with the surrogacy aspects. This means that not all of them can provide good advice and eliminate all concerns. However, the specialists working in our Agency can provide qualified support. They have extensive experience of counselling the future genetic parents.
When you come to the babyforyou Agency, you receive not only a complete range of purely medical services related to surrogacy, but also complete psychological assistance and support as well as consultations and explanation of legal aspects of the raised concerns. All financial questions as well as the cost of services provided by our Agency are also discussed with you during the initial consultation, and are included in the agreement.
