Becoming a Surrogate Isn't Easy

People these days are taking an interest in surrogacy as an option for treating infertility. And it's not just the people who are suffering from fertility problems that are increasingly interested in this route. It's also women who want to help a couple have a baby. However, potential surrogate moms should know that there are a lot of requirements that you have to meet in order to qualify to be a surrogate. You can't just go in and say, "sure I'll carry a baby" and be done with it. You need to pass rigorous health and mental health screenings in order to prove that you are physically and emotionally capable of coping with the responsibility of bringing a life into this world for someone else to raise. That's good news for infertile couples who want to consider surrogacy but have been wary about just who would apply for the job. There are stable, intelligent, healthy women out there who are happy to serve as surrogates and a good screening process can help find them. Question of the Day: What regulations do you think should be in place to make sure that surrogate mothers are fit for the job?
