Could you be a surrogate?

Do you think you could carry a child and "give it away"? Could you be a surrogate?

  • If I was a surrogate that just carried a baby for some one else, but it was theirs, yes. I have considered it for my cousin and her DH. I couldn't carry a baby that was my egg & some one else's sperm. I wouldn't be able to give the baby up.

  • Don't know about the "give it away" thing, but never want to be pregnant so definately couldn't be a surrogate.

  • Yes. For someone I knew, and cared for. For someone I knew would be a good parent, I'd definitely do it. I've offered for my sister already.

  • No. I couldn't do it in any circumstances. If I carry it the baby is mine. I could never picture parting with him or her.

  • No way! There's only one way I'll ever be pregnant again: That is to have a little sister for my son (hopefully).

  • i could for my sisters or best friends but not for a complete stranger. I've already told my 2 besties and both my sisters that if in order for them to have a child someone else had to carry it for them I'd do it. They'd just have to be there with me every step of the way AND if I can't drink...neither can they!

  • I would do it in extreme circumstances (such to help my sister to have one) but is also the issue on my husband's opinion...Is a lot involved more than the pregnancy itself!

  • yes. provided the couple who needed an "oven" paid for all the pregnancy related medical expenses and some extra food :D i would have no problem doing that. :)

  • It depends on who it is and their situation.
