Patience And The Surrogacy Process

You may be a generous, giving woman that has recently decided to become a surrogate.  Or you may be ready to be parents that decided to begin the surrogacy process to grow your family. Both starting points are filled with excitement and optimism of beginning something that leads to a dream come true for everyone involved.

The end of the surrogacy process for women who become surrogates and parents to be is truly a beautiful and special time.  The path to get to that special time is filled with many steps, processes, procedures, requirements, and potentially delays and setbacks.  That is where patience comes in.  Patience is not something that most of us are very good at unless we focus our efforts to be patient. Or be more patient.  In addition, most of us also do not like to hear that we need to be patient. Or be more patient.  But having patience with the surrogacy process will allow you to be able to persevere through all of the steps, processes, procedures, requirements and any delays or setbacks.  Because in the end, it will be worth it.

One important way to help yourself be more patient with the surrogacy process is to know what to expect during your journey.  A surrogacy agency will be able to explain the surrogacy process in detail which will ensure that your expectations are realistic.  Also, a surrogacy agency will be able to provide the framework for all steps in the surrogacy process, including delays and setbacks so that you have an expert working with you side by side helping you navigate as efficiently as possible.

Having a good support system will also help you be more patient during the surrogacy process. A surrogacy agency can offer you support throughout your journey; however it is important to find multiple areas of support. Take good care of yourself.  Get good sleep, eat a healthy diet, and exercise.  The better you feel physically and mentally, the better equipped you will be to manage the surrogacy process well by being patient with yourself and others.
