Repeat Surrogacy: What to Know

Many women deeply value giving others the gift of childrearing so much that they wish to become a surrogate once again to help more intended parents fulfill their dreams of parenthood. However, you may wonder whether repeat surrogacy is a good idea and if there are any added benefits in doing so.

What Are the Benefits of Becoming a Repeat Surrogate?

  • A Smoother Setup Process
    For starters, your process will likely be much smoother because you’ve been through the process before and have proven that you’re up to the task.  As a result, there is a good chance things will go more quickly the second time. It saves an agency time as well, and that’s just one of the reasons we really appreciate repeat surrogates and will go the extra mile for them.
  • The Risk for Complications Tends to Drop
    You will also be less likely to have complications.  Although we know no two pregnancies are the same, if your first surrogacy went smoothly your second surrogacy journey will likely go smoothly as well.

How Much Time Should I Wait Before Becoming a Surrogate Again?

Typically, you need to wait at least six months after your last vaginal delivery before applying to become a surrogate again.

Is There a Limit on the Number of Pregnancies a Surrogate Can Have?

Yes. Although no law establishes a limit on the number of pregnancies a surrogate can have, the guidelines by medical professionals indicate that a surrogate candidate should not exceed a total of six pregnancies. This includes both surrogacy and non-surrogacy pregnancies.
