A gay dad is born

May 27, 2015

For a member of the gay community, becoming a parent involves many factors, yet it’s a wonderful and emotional journey.
The dream to become a parent through gay surrogacy process (gay or straight parent) connects us immediately to our parents, they serve as an example of good parenting and also an example of them not doing a great job raising us (in our view). It also connects us to our desire to be better parents for our children.
While gay surrogacy process of becoming parents is a positive and exciting
experience, it can also be very stressful, tense and nerve wrecking. Many who go through the process of gay surrogacy worry about the well being of the embryo, the success of the process, and the safe return home when going through the surrogacy process abroad.
It is well known that many parents (men / women) develop depression and anxiety during the gay surrogacy process and the pregnancy, some times before the baby is born, or after the birth. This happens to both men and women. It is also known that planning ahead can actually assist and decrease the chance to develop symptoms of depression and anxiety before and after the baby is born.
As you (gay or straight dad) prepare for your journey, it is recommended to get as much support as possible during the gay surrogacy process. It’s significant to talk, to share the difficulties with others, perhaps other gay parents who have been through the same process of gay surrogacy or willing to start their journey through gay surrogacy. It is important to seek mental support or financial help if needed, in order to assure a smooth ride. A few sessions with a psychologist could be of assistance when dealing with stress.
To recap, it is important to remember that the best you can be for your children is a GOOD ENOUGH FATHER, and let’s keep in mind – that’s not bad at all.

Dedicated to all gay dads who have gone through gay surrogacy and now are fortunate to be parents and to all the ones who are expecting / have a baby on the way.
