Would you be a surrogate Mother for a friend?

I was just wondering how many women would consider being a surrogate Mother for a friend ?

  • my friend was trying for years and i told her i would do it in a heartbeat, this was before i was married then i got married and my dh said no but after getting to know this friend what she meaned to me in my life along with her husband ( wonderful people) he understood and said if it came down to it i could and i would in an instant. but she did end up pregnant on her own after a while due to a fertility doctor well the 2nd doc lol and she has a wonderful lil girl now. we also dicussed that if i did she would always be mama but i would always be auntie and even said if we ever fought ( u just never know ) that my kids will never miss out on her and now with her dd its the same rule. she is always auntie as i am to her dd. besides the child could always be in ur life that was my rule ill do it but never take the baby away..we considerd it like family.

  • I couldn't do it. It would be to hard for to go carry that baby for 9 months, give birth and then just hand the baby right on over. Call be selfish but that would just kill me emotionally.

  • I dunno if I could. I hated being pregnant and I don't think I could carry a child and then give it up.

  • I hated being pregnant but I would definitely do it for a friend- imagine the joy I could bring into their lives =) And I think I'd have a very special bond with their child

  • I would do it for a stranger. I actually want to. I want to have another pregnancy/birth experience, but I definitely don't want another baby. So surrogacy seems like the logical answer. And after going through what I did when pregnant with and after giving birth to my daughter, I know I can handle it emotionally.

    As soon as my daughter weans, I plan to start down that path. :)
