Does my blood have to match for my baby to be carried in someone else?

I have had 3 miscarriages. I’m ready to become a mother. My Question is my friend has offered to carry for me.My heart breaks everytime my period is late or different. I would love to carry my baby myself but I can’t seem to carry to term and it’s killing me. I’m ready now for a baby.

Usually, the blood type of a surrogate mother does not need to match an intended mother in order for a surrogacy to occur.

Occasionally, an intended mother may have a medical condition which requires specific blood types, but these intended mothers are aware of this requirement based on their own fertility efforts.

Speak with your fertility specialist.

Best wishes!
