What does it mean to have a Gestational Carrier?

A woman who carries a fetus and gives birth to a child for another woman or couple. For a woman to serve as a gestational carrier, an embryo (created by the process of in vitro fertilization) is implanted in her uterus. The gestational carrier has no biological relationship to the embryo she is carrying.

Watrous IVF Journey 2019 (1)How it all started??? Lindsey and I were attending a graduation dinner with some friends to celebrate Shawna. While our families have know each other since 2006, we never would have expected that Lindsey would hear my comments across the table about surrogacy being the next  stage in our IVF journey, and offer to have our baby. Moments later the whole table of ladies who were aware of my journey with IVF were in tears.

Here we are a year later, after several appointments with lawyers, counselors, doctors, and nurses, on this journey together.

It’s a big commitment to be a gestational carrier, requiring a ton of hormones that affect your mood and ability to care for your family. Words aren’t enough to express our gratitude for the Kent family and the sacrifices they have all made to be a part of bringing our Watrous Baby into this world.
