Hi, Bella. Like hundreds of other infertile women I used to go for the surrogacy. I was unable to get pregnant for a long time. So, we had no choice. That’s why I completely understand you. People keep saying that it is not safe. But I don’t agree. Medicine is very developed nowadays. Doctors are doing their best to help infertile couples. My baby boy was born 3 years ago. It was pretty hard but I’m glad that we did it. I know that surrogacy is still illegal in most countries. You should be very attentive choosing the clinic. I recommend you to visit a couple of medical centers. Talk to doctors and choose the one you like. I’m sure you will make the right choice.
In common, the surrogacy process doesn’t take much time. It takes 1-2 months to finish all the preparations. After that you will wait for 9 months of the surrogate’s pregnancy. As for me it is much faster than adoption. As usual, adoption takes a couple of years.
Also, thanks to the surrogacy, we got our biological baby. Our son is genetically related to both my husband and me. It is really great! He looks exactly like my husband.
Well, don’t be afraid and you will get what you want. Hundreds of women around the world go for the surrogacy. It is absolutely safe nowadays. Hope your husband is supporting you. It is very important. I wish you good luck!

That’s not a reliable indication for surrogacy, although I understand why you want to pitch it as such. Surrogacy is very expensive and makes lots of money for your clinic.

It is legal in the USA, although more in some states than others. But I agree with you that one should be careful choosing an IVF clinic for surrogacy. One should avoid the Ukraine. Ukrainian clinics hire shills to post fake stories on these message boards, pretending to be patients with success stories under various sock accounts. It is actually very rare and a bit rude for a successful patient to come here bragging about success. Most often, those posters are advertisers, usually for Ukraine. They post obvious fabrications, such as that they have kids in one post but not in the next, or that they are 44 years old but then they are 33 in the next post. They claim Ukraine has 100% success rates, another lie.
Avoid any clinics that advertise so deceptively.
Avoid IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukrainian centers pay shills to post here under numerous sock accounts pretending to be patients in Ukraine. Centers using such deceptive advertising cannot be trusted and should be avoided.

But I have heard that surrogacy is extremely popular. being a member of a few surrogacy communities on FB I know for sure that a lot of women sign for it. not that many, it is only a small fraction of all of the women in the world. but still.
and a lot of them choose Ukraine. like thousands and thousands. and it is undeniable
