In the article I Gave Birth to Someone Else's Children"—What It's Like to Be a Surrogate, Circle surrogate Sara Chinn shares it all—from the anxiety of being matched with parents to the rush of emotions in the delivery room.
I’m not sure I could think of two words that pack more emotion than “you’re pregnant.” They can knock a grown man to his knees—or, in my case—two grown men.
Let's back up a little. I’m a 35-year-old woman from Kansas who’s had four children of my own, and I enjoyed every moment of being pregnant with them. After our youngest child was born, my husband and I knew we were done. But I missed physically being pregnant: I missed having my nails grow faster, feeling the baby kicking—heck, I even missed the cravings. So when my sister-in-law struggled with infertility, I knew instantly that I wanted to be a surrogate for her.
