Are you considering becoming a surrogate in California? It takes a very special kind of woman to undergo such a personal process on behalf of someone else and it makes a world of difference to the lives you’ll touch. But, you may find yourself wondering, is now the right time? Fall is a great time to become a surrogate in California for lots of reasons. A few are outlined below.
1) You’ll Have a Spring or Summer Baby
Typically characterized as September, October, and November, the autumnal months are great for conception because they herald a late spring or summer baby. This is great if you have other kids at home and want to spend the summer vacation months with them while you recover. It also means you’ll be able to get out more and enjoy the good weather after the baby is born if you want to walk off the baby weight.
2) The Baby May Be Healthier
Researchers have investigated all sorts of things that influence the health of babies. Interestingly, babies born in the late spring or early summer tend to be healthier. For example, those which come after July have a decreased risk of things like cleft palate, spina bifida, and Down syndrome. Late spring and early summer babies also tend to have thicker bones and are taller. The intended parents will likely be thrilled with a baby whenever he or she comes, but they may also appreciate being able to bring the wee one home when it’s easy to go out and enjoy the sun, as this is helpful for conditions like jaundice. There’s also something to be said for not being in a hospital or having a newborn in public during flu season.
3) Casual and Breezy Clothing is Expected
Being a surrogate in California, you pretty much always get to enjoy comfy beach attire. That said, from spring through summer the change in culture is even more pronounced. If you choose to live in your swimsuit and flip-flops, nobody’s going to look twice or judge. Of course, you’ll probably prefer better arch support!
4) You Get to Enjoy the Holidays Pregnant
The holiday season is already pretty magical, but as they roll around this time, they’ll be twice as magical. By this point, you’ll probably feel comfortable telling people you’re expecting as you’ll likely be at or around the second trimester. That also means your holiday photos will show the wonderful pregnancy glow and friends and family will likely be jumping in to help with everything from meal preparation to shopping.
5) You’re Ready
When you’re ready, you’re ready. You don’t need a special time to choose to be a surrogate in California. There are intended parents out there right now who are looking for someone like you and can’t wait to meet you. If it’s in your heart to help a family grow, anytime is the right time.
