COVID-19 Pandemic and Surrogacy – Frequently Asked Questions
Living through a pandemic like COVID-19 can be mentally and emotionally taxing, especially for those interested in becoming a surrogate mother. At Creative Love Egg Donor & Surrogacy Agency we have been receiving a lot of messages regarding the coronavirus pandemic and how that impacts surrogacy, the surrogacy process and ultimately becoming a surrogate mother.
In today’s blog we wanted to address some of the more common questions about the COVID-19 pandemic and surrogacy.
Is your Surrogacy Agency still open during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Yes, our surrogacy agency is still open and accepting new surrogate mother applications during the coronavirus pandemic. Similar to many businesses that can operate remote/virtually, Creative Love has been taking in new surrogate applications, screening surrogate mothers/intended parents, facilitating necessary medical visits (including remote visits) and starting the surrogacy process for many surrogate mothers.
In addition to applying to become a surrogate mother and completing the initial steps of the surrogacy process from the comfort of your home, we are also able to help match you with the intended parents via remote meetings.
Is it a good idea to start the surrogacy process during the coronavirus pandemic?
Deciding to become a surrogate mother now or later should be a decision you make on your own and should only be made after deciding if becoming a surrogate mother is right for you. With that said, if you are concerned about beginning the surrogacy journey now due to the coronavirus pandemic, rest assured that we have taken every step to ensure the health and safety of you throughout this time.
Will there still be in-person medical visits during the pandemic?
Yes and no, depending on the type of visit and the requirements for visiting in-person. At Creative Love we have been following the CDC guidelines, as well as those set forth by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, as it relates to social distancing and in-person visits.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic is already here, and cases in parts of Florida are on the decline, there is a chance that by the time certain medical visits are required the social distancing and in-person requirements may be lifted. If that is not the case, we may have to delay certain parts of the surrogacy process or resort to virtual visits where we are able to.
