Have you ever used a surrogate? Would you ever become a surrogate?

Surrogacy’s back in the news this week with the announcement that celeb couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are expecting twins with the help of a surrogate. There’s also the amazing story of my friend, Angela, who is serving as a gestational carrier (the term she prefers to “surrogate.”) for a couple and will deliver a baby girl this summer.

Personally, I think women who become surrogates are incredibly generous. Pregnancy is no easy task, even when things go smoothly. Changes to the body along with hormonally-induced emotional changes can definitely take their toll. I’ve never considered surrogacy (and I doubt I’d be a great candidate at the ripe ol’ age of 38 and having had two C-sections) but I’m glad that others do.

What do you think? Would you ever consider using a surrogate to have a child? Would you ever consider becoming a surrogate yourself?
