A Surrogate’s Experience

A Surrogate’s Experience

“I was a surrogate and the delivery was at home. Her mama and I cross nursed for a couple days  (so yeah the nursing photo is me nursing a baby that isn’t mine) and I now pump and donate (albeit not for my surrobaby).” ~Kristina

A surrogate home birth…

Bio Parents meeting their precious baby…

Still pumping to donate breastmilk…

An example of a giving and loving spirit.

  1. I love the last picture. “I’m just sitting here completely naked pumping milk.” I love that she wouldn’t mind a picture of that 🙂

    1. We were at a hotel, and I had just gotten out of the shower. I didn’t really see the point of clothes 😛

      1. Yeah, you’ve got a pretty awesome openness about your body, going for the bottom-in-the-air birth shot and the naked pumping shot. More of us (women) should be as relaxed about our bodies.

  2. Lovely.

    I talked to my husband about being a surrogate. He is convinced I would not be able to handle it emotionally. I cannot imagine how challenge it would be. Good for you, and congratulations to the family that you birthed.

  3. I have given serious thought to being a surro-mom one day. And I would only do it if the parents would be okay with a home birth. 🙂 You are a strong woman and gave an amazing gift!

  4. I wanted to be a surrogate, but was told that I was overweight and that made me a bad candidate… 🙁 Broke my heart. Congrats to you for giving the gift of life! I admire you!! Congrats to the new parents <3
