Just like our intended parents we only work with surrogate mothers that share the same beliefs as us. All of the surrogate mothers that join our agency family have a full understanding of the commitment they are about to embark on. Most important to us is working with surrogate mothers that understand for any surrogate match to be ideal the surrogate has to be committed to the fact that they are walking in the shoes of the intended mother and must share the same values and beliefs for the journey to be ideal. It is our job at Creative Love to sit down with our intended parents and go over a list of many very important questions so we have a full understanding of their expectation and what they are exactly looking for in a surrogate mother.
