This thought came up after looking into becoming a surrogate. There are lots of regulations for the expectant mother; most of which I completely agree with and understand why they are in place. Others, however; are IMO questionable.
Would you "allow" bending of some rules if you could then negotiate a lower price for the surrogacy (or other variable)? Which would you overlook? Would you overlook some things depending on if the egg was implanted or if it was the surrogates?
Examples: (not necessarily mine)
-Maternal history of Gestational Diabetes (with no family history of diabetes and previous children born with normal glucose levels)
-Maternal history of /family history of chemical imbalance (such as depression or anxiety, no history of 'extreme' mental disturbance)
-Maternal smoking of cigerettes
-Maternal smoking of marijuana
This is a genuine question. Honest, non-bashing answers would be appriciated.
