Between 2010 and 2014, surrogacy use rose 89 percent. Think about those numbers. Women clearly began to see the benefits of using such a service, and there is clearly a large client base ready to use it.

Some couples, rather than adopt, want a baby that is in some way related to them. If you are looking into surrogacy, there are a few things you should know. It’s a wonderful experience, but it’s also a complex one.
