Surro-Support For Surrogates

Growing Generations takes pride in providing comprehensive care and support to our surrogates during every phase of their journey. As part of our commitment to provide that support, surrogates receive monthly links to our “Surro-Support ™” survey.

The survey, completed online, is designed as a way to check in on all areas of the surrogate’s life as it relates to the surrogacy. She’s asked to rate the level of support she is receiving from family, friends, and her intended parents. We will touch base on her emotional health as well as her physical health and give her an open door to reach out to our staff with any concerns or stress she may be experiencing.

 

The survey is usually completed in a matter of minutes and submitted electronically. “Despite the brevity and ease of completion, the Surro-Support questionnaire can highlight changes the surrogate is experiencing that may be indicative of a larger problem.” By asking the surrogate to examine her emotions on a regularly scheduled basis we allow her to be in command of her own experience.

Even if there are no concerns to be noted, the survey provides a regularly scheduled window of communication that builds confidence and trust with the surrogate. A major goal of the program is giving the surrogate that open door to reach out with concerns without experiencing the nerves or anxiety many women feel when asking for help.

Surro-Support Emails generally start shortly after matching and continue through the entire journey. These are not the only opportunity for outreach available to the surrogate, but they are a no pressure option.

Surro-Support is just one of the many systems Growing Generations has in place in order to help with every step of the journey.
