    Default Surrogacy?

    I was wondering if anyone could give me some information about being a surrogate, I know a couple who are considering using one because of fertility trouble and failed ivf attempts. I've been thinking about offering as I've finished my family and would love to give the gift to someone else. I have no idea how it really works etc and legalities, is there anyone here who has done it that can help out? Tia

    The fact that you are considering this warms my heart and gives me happy fuzzy feelings.

    There is a pregnancy diary of a surrogate on here, headoverfeet is the member. She may be able to help you.

    Thought I would update this,
    I've been asked by this couple if I would donate eggs as they have discovered recently this may be the problem, I'm quite nervous about the procedure just waiting til October to be 12 months post pregnancy myself and I'll see their fertility specialist
