California residents with fertility struggles have different options for having a family. Depending on the situation, some forms of fertility assistance might make more sense than others. Surrogacy is one of those options; these are some questions to ask when choosing a gestational carrier.

Her decision to become a surrogate

One question to ask when choosing someone to carry your child for you is why she decided to become a surrogate. All gestational carriers have interesting stories in response to this question. You want to ensure that the person you choose to help you bring your child into the world became a surrogate for all the right reasons.

Her values

Another question that can help you narrow down your search for a gestational carrier is about her values. When you know a prospective surrogate’s personal values, and if they mesh with yours, it helps you to narrow down your search. Choosing a surrogate who you can get along with is a good idea.

Her interests

All surrogates have their interests and hobbies. You might want to ask questions about them out of curiosity. It’s also a good way to understand her personality better. For example, if you both enjoy the arts, it could help you bond and make your decision easier.

Her family

Although gestational carriers don’t share genetics with the child they carry, asking them about their family might make help you decide whether she’s the right match for you. You want to choose someone who comes from a good family background. It also helps if their family is supportive of their surrogacy plans.

Surrogacy is a good option for some couples and individuals. When you find the right carrier, it could be the best thing for your family.
