Imagine you have agreed to use your womb to keep someone's embryo,how are you going to let go of the baby after you give birth and is it hard.My niece donated her womb to an old couple next door and after nine months of unbelievable groaning and massive eating she gave birth but was reluctant to give up the baby.But in the end she gave it up.Is it that hard giving up a baby as a surrogate mother?

I've always wanted to be a surrogate mom, to help someone that could never have a child of their own. From the beginning that person or couple should be involved in the pregnancy and you would see how this baby is theirs and not yours. In order to be a surrogate you have to have children of your own and then you wouldn't be so attached since you have your own already. It took me a while to realize that my baby girl was actually mine, so I think it would be really easy for me to give someone their baby.

i just couldnt give it up. it might not be my genes but i would fall in love with the bump even before seeing the little face. im way to soft to do anything like that. i love babys, and fall in love to fast.

I know for myself that I would give it up surely...it wouldnt be my child...I am just carrying this child for another couple. It is different when it is your own child. That is why I could never donate my egg...forget that.

In theory it sounds very doable! Knowing from the beginning that the child isn't yours seems like it would make it easier, but you do grow very attached to a child growing inside you... even if it isn't yours! It's a natural maternal instinct that pregnant woman develop. And it does make it very hard to give up the baby, even if you knew right along from the beginning that it's not yours!

i think if you go into it know that it isn't your baby and that you have to give it up, it shouldn't be that hard. its different when its your own flesh and blood. i've never done it but i think i could. if someone i knew needed me to help them i probably would.
