How do I become a single father with surrogacy?
The beautiful thing about surrogacy is that it allows anyone the ability to start a family of their own, regardless of their unique situation. While surrogacy is very popular for those struggling to start a family due to infertility or being of the same sex, it can also be an option for single men looking to become a father.
In today’s blog we will be going over this topic, answering some of the more common questions and hopefully providing you with some insight to help you in your journey to becoming a Dad!
Surrogacy and Single Men
When people think of surrogacy, it is common that they are thinking of a couple, either infertile or of the same sex, looking to start a family of their own. Although this may seem like the most common reason to pursue surrogacy, it is not the only reason. Over the past few years, we have seen more and more single men, along with women, look to surrogacy as an option to start their own family, on their own terms. In fact, choosing on your own to become a dad is great decision as you are making this choice for you and your future child.
Can a single man start a family through surrogacy?
Absolutely! Just like any couple looking to start a family through surrogacy, single men can become fathers through surrogacy and the surrogacy process is very much the same with a single man as it is with a couple.
Why is surrogacy a good idea for single men?
One size does not fit all, and that could not be truer to starting a family. Traditionally, the only option for men to start a family would be through marriage or a long-term relationship. Although there is nothing wrong with either of those choices, there are many instances where becoming a father while still being a single man is a good choice. Ultimately, it will be up to you to decide if surrogacy is the right decision for you.
Will the baby have my genes?
Yes! When choosing to have a child through surrogacy, you can have your sperm used in the in vitro fertilization (IVF). By choosing this, your sperm will be used to fertilize the donor’s egg, passing your genes through to your child.
