Becoming a Parent

Sperm and EggFrom Person to Parent

Those who have struggled with fertility or who cannot conceive for other reasons often come to the table as relative experts on the subject of how to make a baby. They may know about fertility signs, nutrition, exercise, international adoption regulations, egg and sperm life and more. You may have spent years figuring out how to get from person to parent. When the day comes, however, many are completely unprepared for the actual job.

FeetThe good news is, nothing can really prepare you for parenthood. You will fall into it head-first, bleary-eyed and, frankly, a little lost. Don’t worry! You will learn on the job just like any other parent. The journey is the most amazing you will experience in your lifetime, with challenges of equal magnitude.

Having a child will give you a sense of permanence, or the realization that this life is connected to you forever. It can be overwhelming for some, as that degree of responsibility and love will make everything comparatively small. The most important thing you can do before and after a child is born is to communicate with your spouse, partner or other loved one about what you are feeling. You will need to manage your stress, and talking helps.

At Surro Connections our number one priority is the safety and health of our Gestational Carriers and Intended Parents.

With the recent news and ever-changing recommendations by the Center of Disease Control we are taking our role in continuing that priority very seriously. Because of the COVID-19 activity, our agency is making case-by-case decisions and taking very serious precautions to ensure the continued health and safety of our clients.

Due to the recent travel restrictions, we are ensuring that every Gestational Carrier who is due soon, and whose intended parents are unable to fly in for the birth, have extra support. Anyone with an upcoming delivery date will have a plan of action that includes on-call support to help should baby arrive before Parents. We are asking our Gestational Carriers to take extra precautions and to follow the CDC guidelines for their own health and safety.

Our team will continue to work around the clock providing extra support and updates as news develops.
