Parenthood Pointers for Intended Parents Parents-in-the-making have plenty to think with each and every pregnancy. Adding the complicated medical, legal, social and financial feats of surrogacy, it can be natural for intended parents to be so absorbed in the process that they forget about their most important journey: parenthood. It’s easy to get caught up in the world of surrogacy, but as an intended parent, it is extremely important to think about your plans for the arrival of your baby. Below are some tips to help you: 1. Read, read, read.

2. Take parenting courses. Call your pediatrician, hospital, county family services office or your local school district and inquire about parenting classes and other resources that may be useful to you. They can provide advice on preparing for your baby’s arrival, and on services that come in handy when that time comes. 3. Be ready for change. At least for the first few months or even years after your baby’s arrival, your life may only circle around your little one. Get ready for middle-of-the-night feedings and a conservative social schedule, and talk to household members about childcare responsibilities, roles and expectations ahead of time. 4. Start gathering baby essentials. While waiting for your baby to be born, start shopping for essential items, such as a crib, extra pillows, a stroller, mittens, etc. This step is a must in as far as physically providing for your new child is concerned, but at the same time, it is also a good way to get into the parent mindset. 5. Have a support network. Parenthood can be feat, but friends and family often know that. Be happy to accept help; in fact, accept a support system for when your baby finally arrives. 6. Relax. You probably have an idea of how you want to be as a parent, but be flexible enough to go with the flow. There are times when some things don’t go as intended, even if we only intended for the best for our child, and that is okay. Learn to let go. 7. Enjoy your journey! Even though you don’t really experience the pregnancy firsthand, you have an entire nine-month period (or so) to spend mentally, emotionally and even physically preparing yourself for your baby’s arrival. Be as involved as possible through the course of your surrogate’s pregnancy, enroll in registries and by all means, have a baby shower – who says you can’t? The child is every inch yours.
