Preparing to carry a child for intended parents can be a complex and emotional journey for surrogates. To begin the surrogacy journey with confidence, there are several tips surrogates should consider that can help ensure a healthy and successful pregnancy and after the child is born. One of the most important first steps to take is to set up a prenatal regimen for the surrogate mother.
Elevate Baby is a surrogacy agency that helps match intended parents with qualified surrogates. It is our goal to ensure that the qualified surrogates we work with have all the knowledge they need to feel comfortable taking the first step in this exciting journey. Setting up a prenatal regimen for surrogacy is a preliminary step that ensures peace of mind for the surrogate mother before they are with child.
What Are the Best Tips for Preparing a Prenatal Regimen for a Surrogate Mother?
Surrogacy is a wonderful opportunity for women to provide intended parents with one of the most treasured gifts as they help them build the family they have dreamed of. However, while the prospect of helping others by carrying their child can be exciting, pregnancy itself can sometimes be stressful. That is why we encourage the surrogate mothers we work with at Elevate Baby to determine a prenatal regimen before they are pregnant with the intended parent’s child. By doing this, the surrogate will have lower stress and have the best chance of a successful surrogacy journey.
Some of the best tips for preparing a prenatal regimen as a surrogate mother include:
Consider Your Current Birth Control
The use of birth control like the pill, Depo shot, and Nexplanon should be discontinued or the IUD should be removed. Typically, reproductive endocrinologists prefer women to have at least three normal menstrual cycles before they can even be evaluated to become a surrogate.
Surrogates should ensure their vaccinations are up to date. Hepatitis-B vaccines can take up to three months to complete. For this reason, you should consider getting a head start on any necessary vaccinations. This can be beneficial to your matching timeline.
Speak to you Obstetrician Physician
Most surrogates will require obstetrician, or OB, clearance, so it is helpful to get an idea if your OB thinks you would be a good candidate for gestational surrogacy.

As a surrogate, you will be carrying the intended parents’ child through to term. While the surrogacy journey should be one you are excited for as you look to be matched with intended parents, pregnancy can still involve some nerves as you carry out this incredible act of selflessness.
