Most important thing to do when matching?

by Ashley Lee

Whats the most important thing you need to remember when you are matching for a surrogacy? We are in our early 40’s, professionals, looking for a surrogate in our home state of California. It’s all becoming so overwhelming! And so exciting at the same time. I just want to make sure we get it all right and don’t make some huge mistake. What is most important?

Ashley, you sound very excited!

The best advice I can give you on matching with the perfect surrogate mother for you is to take your time and to be yourself.

As tempting as it is to rush things, especially when you are excited, take it slow and go over every issue that is important to you and your husband.

I assume you have already done all the research you need to do on surrogacy? If not, stop everything and do that now! Be well informed before you match.

And be yourself. Don’t try to be who you feel the potential surrogate mother wants you to be; totally be who you are.

Remember, its a lot like dating!

Best wishes on your matching and surrogacy journey!
