Considering a surrogacy agreement? You're not alone

101719699_s.jpgSurrogacy is not a new idea. If a Missouri woman is facing possible complications with conception or pregnancy, she may be considering a surrogacy agreement. The process of having a child carried and delivered by another woman can be traced back to the dawn of modern civilization, and examples can even be found in religious texts like the Christian Bible. For a long time, many people viewed surrogacy as something taboo, but in recent years, society is changing its attitude. 

This may be due in part to the positive testimonies being shared by popular celebrities. A few years ago, Kim Kardashian shared her intimate thoughts and experiences on the subject. Since then, more well-known figures have come forward to share their stories. Most recently, Kandi Burress, star on a popular reality television show, gave the world its first glimpses of her child born via surrogate. 

Burress explained to interviewers that, after years of heartache due to failed fertility treatments and medical complications, she and her husband decided to explore the option of a surrogacy agreement. Her OBGYN recommended someone she was familiar with herself, a healthy young woman with a background in the medical field. Burress said that, at first, she was hesitant to form a personal relationship with the surrogate because she was not sure if it was appropriate, but, by the time her beautiful baby was born, the two had formed a strong bond. 

If a Missouri woman is considering a surrogacy agreement, she will quickly realize that, beneath the joys, fears and excitement of welcoming a new baby, surrogacy agreements are a legal process. In addition to choosing the right surrogate, it may be a good idea to choose the right attorney. An attorney can help a client make sure all the legal aspects are properly completed, and parents can focus on preparing for the birth of a new baby without worry of legal troubles or confusion.
