Why A Lesbian Couple Would Choose Surrogacy

Surrogacy is used by all combinations of couples and single people. Just because a couple has two uteruses between them, doesn’t mean they won’t use surrogacy as a way to grow their family. Both women might be unable to carry a child or they might just feel this is the best way to grow their family.

5 reasons why lesbian couples might choose surrogacy

  1. Infertility: Infertility effects about 10% of women between the ages 15-44. Both women could potentially struggle with infertility and decide surrogacy is the route for them.

  2. Age: People in general are waiting longer to have children. They might be focusing on a career or waiting to be financially stable. By the time they get around to growing their family, they might have passed the age where they can carry a child themselves.

  3. Medication: There are certain medications that are not conducive with pregnancy and yet might be necessary for the health of the woman.

  4. Born without a uterus or have had to have a hysterectomy

  5. Other life threatening situations: There are some medical conditions that are life threatening to a woman if she tried to carry a child herself.

These are just some reasons a lesbian couple might choose surrogacy. No matter the reason, we at Montana Surrogacy are here to help you grow your family!
