There’s no doubt that we are all living in unprecedented times. Covid has impacted and changed our world forever. Although we’ve been dealing with the pandemic for the past seven months now, we are still learning about this virus. But one thing we do know is that it’s turned our world upside down. While it may seem like life as we know it will never be the same, things are starting to change as schools are now getting back to in-person sessions, more restaurants and businesses are opening up and we are gathering with smaller groups.
While we are all trying to stay safe and adjust to life in these uncertain times, becoming a surrogate might be the last thing on your mind. However, surrogacy (and pregnancy in general) during a pandemic isn’t as scary as it sounds. There are many precautions taken to keep everyone involved safe, with lots of adjustments during the process.
Yes, you can absolutely still apply to become a surrogate, according to Extraordinary Conceptions. As the leading surrogacy agency in Southern California, they’re still accepting applications for surrogates while helping international couples from across the globe start a family. However, they are making sure everything is done safer than ever because of the pandemic.
Extra precautions are being taken to help keep everyone involved safe – especially surrogate mothers. All medical screenings and embryo transfer procedures have continued since this summer despite many clinics being closed at the early onset of Covid. All clinics are taking the necessary precautions to minimize the spread of Covid-19. Many follow up appointments are now being done via Zoom, including the psychological assessments and the like. Surrogacy during COVID doesn’t have to be challenging, especially when you have support.
If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate, don’t let the pandemic stop you from providing the most amazing gift of all – a child to parents who can’t have any of their own. To begin your surrogate application process with Extraordinary Conceptions, please click here.
