Gestational surrogacy and the military community have long had close ties. Many career service members consider surrogacy when starting their families, as pregnancy can interfere with overseas deployments and the military lifestyle. On the other hand, it’s very common for military wives to become a surrogate themselves because of the wonderful opportunity it presents.
Why Do Military Wives Become Surrogates?
Every surrogate mother has her own reasons for becoming a surrogate, but many military wives enjoy the feelings of joy and fulfillment it brings.
Giving another loving family the gift of a child can be an invaluable and deeply satisfying experience. Other military spouses simply feel that it’s their own way of serving others, just as their partners do. No matter the reason, helping intended parents start a family is an honorable choice.
Are There Requirements for Becoming a Surrogate Mother?
Surrogate mother requirements are strict. Not just anyone can become a surrogate mother.
Generally speaking, surrogate candidates need to be in good physical and mental health, have never had pregnancy complications but have given birth at least once, and be currently living with healthy, happy children.
The criteria to become a surrogate are extensive for a reason: the better qualified the candidate, the less likely complications are to occur.
