During the course of treatment for fertility challenges, some couples come to face the difficult decision of whether or not to use a gestational carrier (also known as a surrogate) in order to achieve their dream of having a family. The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has a very explicit process for evaluating potential carriers and for counseling recipients. These conversations can be difficult, but they’re extremely important. Without fully exploring the emotional and social implications of the choice to become a surrogate or to use a gestational carrier to complete your family, you can find yourself blindsided by unexpected emotions and undue stress. Dr. Rosenquist follows the guidelines set forth by the ASRM in providing quality evaluation and counseling for couples facing this choice.
