Surrogates and Their New Relationships

When a woman becomes a surrogate to enable others to have a baby, new relationships are formed. Here at Shared Conception, we enjoy cultivating these relationships! Research carried out by the Centre of Family Research, University of Cambridge, suggests that many of these relationships do actually flourish.
“Our research shows that in the majority of cases, relationships formed as a result of surrogacy are valued and enjoyed by surrogates and sustained over time,” said Dr Jadva. The study found that surrogates stayed in touch with the majority of the surrogacy children (77 percent) and with most of the parents (85 percent of mothers, 76 percent of fathers). Of the surrogates who had chosen to maintain contact with the surrogacy families, most would meet in person once or twice a year.

Most of the surrogates’ own children (86 percent) had a positive view of their mothers’ involvement in surrogacy. Almost half (47 percent) were in contact with the surrogacy child all of whom reported a good relationship with him or her.


It is clear that the children of surrogate mothers do not experience any negative consequences as a result of their mother’s decision to be a surrogate. In fact, most of the children in the study were supportive of their mother being a surrogate and were proud of what she had achieved.

As the surrogacy process is rewarding, it can also be tedious or stressful. Thus, surrogacy agencies like Shared Conception, are adept at ensuring that the surrogate is receiving the right support at home and that any spouses and kids are on-board with her surrogacy plans. These success stories are not only reflected on paper, they are also depicted in real-life Shared Conception success stories. Give us a call and we will share them with you. Let’s talk soon!
