I want to have your baby!

Wow, I bet that got your attention!       :)

Well it's true. However, unless you're familiar with surrogacy, it's not what you think. Yes I want to have your baby.... but not that way. (P.S. that's my new saying, so don't even think of stealing it!)

I am a "professional" surrogate. Although that would rub some people the wrong way for a few reasons which I will not go into. I'm experienced, but to some that doesn't sound good either.

I'm a gestational surrogate (their genetics, my uterus) and I've done this before. I know what I'm doing, I know how to handle a lot that goes along with surrogacy. I have had awesome experiences and I want you to have an awesome experience too.

Surrogacy should be a positive, wonderful experience for all involved. It's important to know what you're getting into and to have a good support system.

Lucky for you, I know what I'm getting into and I have an amazingly awesome support system. I started researching surrogacy in 2005 and I never stopped. I am constantly learning through my own experiences and others'.

I have been designing t-shirts and merchandise for surrogates and intended parents since 2005. I wrote a children's book about surrogacy in 2010. I am working on another one. Surrogacy will always be a part of my life and has opened many doors for me.

I have 3 children of my own.


 I also had a baby girl as a surrogate and twin boys.

I married my high school sweetheart and he is my #1 supporter! We have a great relationship.

I was a Navy wife for 10 years. Between that and being a surrogate, I can handle just about anything!







I enjoy pregnancy and I enjoy helping others.

I am healthy and have what the Fertility Dr's call a lovely uterus. LOL (but seriously, they all tell me that)

I have an awesome OB/GYN that I have been with since 1996!

I'm a low stress, no drama mama. I'm positive and happy and easy going. I am easy to talk to and easy to get along with.

I have a sense of humor.

I can be silly, but I am serious when I need to be.

I want you to be involved as much or as little as you feel comfortable. I do however, want to know that you're there if I need you. Same goes for me. There should be a happy balance for both sides with respect to our own lives and privacy outside of the surrogacy. I will keep you informed on all things important. I prefer to communicate via e-mail, but phone calls are fine too. You would be more than welcome to come to Dr. appointments and to be there at the birth.

I would like to stay in contact after the pregnancy. This could include e-mails, pictures and possibly visits here and there. It doesn't have to be that way, I'm good with whatever is comfortable for both sides.

I believe that respect is a two way street.

I'm done having my own babies, but I'm not done helping others have theirs.

Like I've said before... I'm not the mom. I'm just the stork. Maybe I could be your stork.

And I have the stretch marks to prove it. Not ashamed, I am a proud surrogate!

  1. As I have said this so many times before you are AMAZING! I seriously think about you all the time, I would totally have you for a surrogate- I still have not discussed this option with my husband: as you may remember I have SO many pregnancy issues, I just don't know enough about surrogacy.
