The Psychological State of the Intended Parents

In order for Shared Conception to  provide a successful surrogacy agreement, it is important that the Intended Parents be flexible, emphatic and ready to respond to this exciting  surrogacy situation with resilience, excitement and strength. This is why we will gently ask questions about how the intended parents make decisions, observe how they treat their surrogate mother and the staff of a surrogacy agency, as well as review their lifestyle history which usually helps to reveal personality traits.

For us, It is extremely important to find out and assess how the Intended Parents came to the choice of having a baby through surrogacy. The majority of Intended Parents prefer surrogacy because:

- They wish to have a child / children, who would be related to at least one of them genetically,

- They may also wish to take part in the pregnancy as well as in the delivery process,

- They desire to know and feel comfortable with the birth mother of their child / children;

- They need to avoid all possible fears regarding the possibility of returning the infant / infants to his or her surrogate family,

- There is lack of adoption opportunities in the state or country, in which the Intended Parents reside.


The next important part of getting to know the Intended Parents is their perception of the surrogate mother and their desire for the surrogacy contract. It is extremely important for the peace and resolution of all surrogacy agreement participants, if the Intended Parents will cordially interact with their surrogate mother as well as trust her, like her and be appreciative of her. The difficult and intense process of achieving conception, the long pregnancy term, as well as the future years of reflection will certainly be based on the Intended Parents being comfortable with their potential surrogate mother.

Here at Shared Conception we believe it's important to get to know more about the intended parents beliefs and plans for the future. What are they going to tell their child /children, and what will they tell other people? Answers such as these can help us see the couplesresolution and readiness for this amazing journey on which they are about to embark!
