Melissa Teeter has given birth four times – three of which were for strangers. Teeter, 35, is a surrogate or more accurately a gestational carrier (GC).
“I loved doing it for the other people,” she said. “I liked to see how happy and excited they are when they get their baby. I don’t feel the attachment to the baby. I don’t feel sad or heartbroken.”
Teeter first heard about surrogacy when she was 22 years old, while watching a television program. She thought, “I could do that.”
She didn’t act on that thought for a few years. She gave birth to her daughters, twins, when she was 26 years old. When they were two years old, she began researching surrogacy. She filled out three or four online applications and by the end of the week, there were two women interested in her services.
