Can you be considered a canidate to be a surrogate mother if you have had a miscarriage?

by Rachel M.

My sister has had many miscarriages and one successful pregnancy. She is just about to turn 40 and she has been trying to have another baby for years now with no success. I am 28 years old and I have a child and have had one miscarriage. I wanted to extend the offer to be a surrogate mother for her but I’m wondering if, because of my miscarriage, I would be considered a viable option.
Thank you,
Rachel M.

Having one miscarriage and going on to have subsequent children is very common. Personally, I lost my first pregnancy at 8 weeks. I went on to have two full-term, healthy children, and my two surrogacy pregnancies, a full-term set of twins as well as a full-term singleton.

If you have only had one miscarriage, this will not affect your ability to become a surrogate mother for your sister. Its when you have had 3-4 miscarriages that it would become a problem.

Best wishes!
