YOU CHOOSE THE DONOR, WE DO THE REST.
Surrogate mothers will take part in a journey that allows them to give one of the most special gifts a person can provide to intended parents who want to build a family. Surrogates instill hope in intended parents as they help them realize their dreams of parenthood. However, for women who may be wondering whether they qualify for surrogacy, there is a lot of information our surrogacy professionals can provide to ensure they feel confident moving forward with the process.
Elevate Baby is a surrogacy agency that helps women interested in becoming surrogates learn more about the process. Our agency can help potential surrogates understand what it takes to become a surrogate and how this journey will fit into their lives. It is our goal to make the experience as joyful as it should be for surrogates and the intended parents they are matched with. Before beginning the journey, our team is here to provide surrogates with more information regarding all that becoming a surrogate in Alabama entails.
Understanding the Two Types of Surrogacy
As a potential surrogate, it is important to understand what surrogacy is and what the difference between the two different types of surrogacy is. The two main types of surrogacy are traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy. At Elevate Baby, we only offer gestational surrogacy services. However, it is still beneficial to understand the difference between traditional and gestational surrogacy so that potential surrogates can have a better understanding of why we feel gestational surrogacy is the best route to take for an overall joyful surrogacy experience.
Gestational surrogacy is when the surrogate mother has no biological link to the child they will carry for the intended parents. On the other hand, traditional surrogacy does allow for the child to have a biological link to the surrogate mother. We don’t offer traditional surrogacy at Elevate Baby due to the fact that this biological link between the surrogate and child they carry can lead to issues down the road in regards to legal custody of the child.
When working with Elevate Baby, our surrogacy professionals will work to match surrogates with intended parents looking to use gestational surrogacy to help them build a family. If potential surrogates feel ready to take the next step in the surrogacy journey, our team can explain more about the qualifications needed to become a surrogate in Alabama.
