Hi, my name is Carolina and I recently completed my first Surrogacy journey. I was looking through my Facebook feed one day and I saw that my sons babysitter wanted to become a gestational surrogate, and I immediately started to do some research to what that was!

At the time I was 2 months pregnant with my daughter. My husband and I talked about not wanting any more kids of our own but I loved being pregnant so I thought being a surrogate was a great option for me. I wanted to give the greatest gift and make a family. My most significant support person throughout my journey was my husband. He was the best!

What made me decide to choose my former intended parents was how amazing they sounded on paper and then we met through skype and I felt very comfortable and confident with them. We were all on the same page about everything I was looking for! We had such a laid back twin pregnancy, it was very nice to have a great pregnancy especially being twins!

The reason I chose FSC was because one of my friends was already in her journey with them, and they were amazing at pretty much everything!

The one thing about my journey that was most surprising to me was how much medication I had to take. I was definitely not prepared for that part, but it did go fast sense the embryo took the first time! Being pregnant as a surrogate was similar but different than my own pregnancies. Thankfully all my pregnancies were mild and uneventful. But as a surrogate I felt like I had to take care of myself a lot more than with my own, sense it wasn’t my babies I wanted to make sure I was doing all things right! I had such a beautiful and wonderful journey, that nothing went wrong!
