Nationwide Egg Donation and Surrogacy in Meridian is seeing fewer women sign up to become surrogates, causing long waitlists for people hoping to become parents.
MERIDIAN, Idaho — Many people dream of becoming a parent, whether it’s a couple or an individual. Those who experience infertility, pregnancy loss, or cannot safely carry a baby to term, turn to surrogates to help them achieve that dream, but there aren’t enough surrogates to meet the current need.
“A surrogate is someone that is carrying somebody else’s biological child,” said Tiffany Valentine, president of Nationwide Egg Donation and Surrogacy. “So, the surrogate is not carrying a baby that does not have any genetic relation to her. She’s just the amazing person carrying it for a family.”
