I believe the reporters are honestly curious, but they seem to expect a one-size-fits-all answer. The truth is much more complex, interesting and dynamic. It is a fascinating, really cool group of women to be involved with.
Of course, all NWSC surrogates have passed the screening process. They must live in OR, WA, CA or CO. They’re all emotionally and financially stable, have had healthy pregnancies, have passed their home visits and psychological exams and are at least 5 feet tall (yes, that is a requirement of the fertility clinics!).
Women who consider becoming surrogates are a thoughtful and motivated group. They’re incredibly determined… the kind of women who get things done. Boss babes. They see surrogacy as a way to help another family while helping their own family.
I work hard to educate reporters on the deep pool of fascinating women we work with. These links take you to stories that have been published or aired. Check out these amazing NWSC surrogates.
