A large number of women who become surrogate mothers do it because they want to help other couples have a family of their own. At first, it’s usually for very good and honorable reasons. However, there are people who will judge you for making that decision and in many cases you`ll find them criticizing your actions. There are many risks that you will face as a surrogate mother. However, the risks vary from one person to another and quite a large number of women end up having successful pregnancies.


Among the risks that you are more likely to face include health risks, financial and medical risks. This is very risky especially to someone who is already working because the journey may go up to a year or even two. Let us look at the potential risks of becoming a surrogate California mom.


1. Health risks. The agency will check whether your ovulation cycles matches the intended mother`s cycle. This is done by putting the surrogate mother on contraceptive and steroids. And before this is done, you will have to undergo blood tests to check the compatibility of the blood to the sperm and blood donors. All these processes involve medicines and you may be ruled out as a potential surrogate mother by failing to pass any of the above tests. Your body must be able to pass the test for the intended parents to choose you as the surrogate mom.
