How long after having a baby should I wait before becoming a surrogate?

Surrogacy-Quote-9by Elizabeth

I am currently pregnant with my own baby (my 4th actully) but I love being pregnant. I have been thinking about this for a long time. I hate the idea of people wanting to have a baby and not being able to. I really think i want to do this but I need to know how long after I have my baby I should wait before I start applying to agencies.

Hi Elizabeth,

You only need to wait as long as your doctor recommends. Once he “clears” you for your next pregnancy, you can apply to become a surrogate mother.

For me, my doctor cleared me for another pregnancy at my 6 week checkup after delivering twins. (We waited six months anyway.)

Most doctors will clear you between 6 weeks and 6 months, though if you experienced complications it might be a year.

Best wishes!
