Navigating The Relationship Between Intended Parents, Surrogates, and Everyone Else

If you are going to become a parent through surrogacy, you will have to navigate your relationship with your Surrogate, your caseworker, and all of the doctors involved in your case. It is difficult to navigate everything and there are times when you may feel like you are overwhelmed. That’s normal!
The path to parenthood isn’t easy, no matter who you are or what path you take. 

Everything Starts With Communication

We will stress the importance of communication as often as we can. Good communication is key to any kind of relationship, but it is even more important during the surrogacy process. You need to be communicative with your caseworker above all else. You need to tell them what you need when you need it, and whatever you are feeling. If you are worried? Explain that to your caseworker. If you are feeling defeated at some point? Explain that as well. Of course, it is important with your Surrogate as well. While we encourage Surrogates and Intended Parents to talk to each other directly, we can help you clear up communication.

A little bit of communication can go a long way.

Everyone Needs To Know The System

We work as hard as we can to educate everyone about where they need to be, what they need to do, and how they need to do it. There is some leniency in certain situations and certain steps, but we’ve developed all the materials our Surrogates and Intended Parents get. 

At EDSI, we have gone through this process for over 1,500 babies. We’ve gotten it down to a science, but we also know that there needs to be room for the personal as well. 

It Means Working With The Best People

One thing we have noticed is that if you work with doctors and specialists that are willing to be communicative and talk to multiple parties, then you have a better experience. We work with doctors that are used to working with Surrogates and Intended Parents. This helps us to keep everything aligned and in order. 

It’s Not Always Going To Be Easy

Let’s be honest: this isn’t a situation that is always going to be the easiest. There are going to be times when you feel like you need more communication or times when you feel like you are getting too much communication.

It’s all about going back to communication and understanding what you need. We walk you through the entire process before you even sign a contract with us because we want you to feel comfortable with everything.
