Surrogacy View is a community focused website that specializes in providing support and reliable information to men and women facing the challenges of surrogacy.

We provide a safe and nurturing environment to connect individuals with shared experiences. Our goal is to bring more public awareness to surrogacy and help our community members on their journey to parenthood.

Intro To Surrogacy

Currently, there are no regulations that state who is qualified to be a surrogate. But experts agree on a few criteria for selecting a surrogate mother. You should choose a surrogate who:

  • Is at least 21 years old.
  • Has already given birth to at least one healthy baby so she understands first-hand the medical risks of pregnancy and childbirth and the emotional issues of bonding with a newborn.
  • Has passed a psychological screening by a mental health professional to uncover any issues with giving up the baby after birth.
  • Willingly signs a contract agreeing to her role and responsibilities in the pregnancy, such as steps she’ll take to ensure prenatal care and to relinquish the baby after birth.
