Surrogacy is increasing in popularity as a way to start a family when a couple is unable to conceive on their own. This includes a surge of surrogacy with young professionals. As surrogacy becomes increasingly popular and understood, the stigma that previously surrounded the practice is disappearing. Couples turn to surrogacy for a number of reasons that vary from couple to couple.
A woman’s biological clock is real. There is a natural instinct to start a family while a woman’s eggs are at their healthiest. This time frame is from a woman’s teenage years until age 35. For many women, this period of time is also when they are focused on building their career. It’s important to understand that while the quality of a woman’s eggs decreases, women are fully capable of successfully carrying a pregnancy after this age. Freezing her eggs when they are at their healthiest allows a woman to preserve her fertility. This way, she can focus on growing her career without worrying that she is sacrificing her ability to start a family.
Trying to conceive and having difficulty can be very stressful, especially if you have been trying for a while without success. It is important to take care of yourself and to reduce your stress levels in order to stay healthy and increase your chances of becoming pregnant.
