Last week was a rough one on the surrogate front. Everything is fine for me, no worries, but I can’t say the same for a few other ladies. I can’t talk about the specifics in two cases as no final decisions have been made, but my heart goes out to the IPs and surrogates who are struggling with a usually carefree time.
One surrogate in my California Surrogate Group went in for her 39-week checkup to find no heart beat. Later it was determined that the umbilical cord wrapped around the baby’s neck. Later, she delivered the beautiful little girl and shared a picture of the IM and the baby . . . a picture of their hands with matching bracelets. A perfect little hand. I could not even imagine what the surrogate or the intended mother and father must be going through. My thoughts go out to all of them.
