Meet Lauren!

“FSC has been absolutely wonderful to work with since the beginning throughout the entire journey. They have been extremely professional, caring, and very responsive to all my questions and concerns. “

Q: What led you to become a Surrogate?

After we had our 3rd child in 2018, I knew I wanted to help another family create a family of their own.

Q. Who was/is your greatest support person/s throughout your journey?

My husband, Brad.

Q. What made you decide to choose your Intended Parents?

They seemed like they would be such loving and caring Dads. We skyped and just clicked on a lot of the different things we discussed.

Q. What are some of the highlights of your journey?

We transferred two embryos hoping that at least one would stick. It was so wonderful to hear that we were pregnant and not with just one, but two beautiful baby girls!  Another highlight would be to get the news that our IPs would finally be able to travel to the US during this pandemic. We were really unsure if they would be able to come so hearing that they were able to was great news!

Q. Do you have advice for women who are interested in becoming a gestational surrogate?

My only advice is to make sure you do your research and that you ask lots of questions if you need to.

Q. What did you find was the biggest misconception people had about surrogacy?

A lot of people assume when you are a surrogate that you are carrying a child and it’s your egg. That was the biggest misconception that I ran into, but when people asked I was happy to explain the process to them so they understood better.
