Hi, there!I feel myself trapped and in a great despair. My GP doesn’t let me get pregnantbecause of my diabetes. I can’t balance my glucose level. In addition, I have someproblems with my kidneys. My GP says that they won’t function properly duringmy pregnancy and may be a great risk both for me and my baby. I’ve visitedquite a lot of diabetes forums where ladies with diabetes share theirsuccessful stories. I would risk, but my DH is against it. He doesn’t want torisk my life. He says that we would better adopt or find a surrogate. Wedecided to start with the second variant. As we don’t have a close friend orrelative who would agree to carry and give birth to our child, we decided to gooverseas and find a respectable fertility clinic that would help us find asurrogate for our baby. We’ve got interested in two clinics. The first clinicseems to be very popular among European infertile couples. However, when wevisited the clinic, there were some things we disliked about it. Firstly, itturned to be very overcrowded. There were queues nearly everywhere. As thereweren’t vacant seats, we had to stand nearly an hour before the fertilityspecialist was ready to meet us. We quite liked the doctor in charge. Sheturned to be very attentive to every single detail. She asked us quite a lot ofquestions about both my husband’s and my health condition. These were thethings we really liked. We visited one more clinic, but I completely dislikedit. Firstly, it was very empty. There weren’t queues anywhere. The staff wasvery soothing and smiley, but I don’t know why I disliked them. Now we have tomake the choice: whether to choose the first clinic or continue searching. Whatdo you think about both these clinics? Should we deal with the first one???

P.S. Isthere anybody here who had to deal with surrogacy? Could you please share yourstories? I really need your help.

Hi, hun. I’m really sorry to hear about your struggles. I have a cousin. She was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 21. She tried to get pregnant several times and both pregnancies ended with miscarriages. However, she finally managed to get pregnant and give birth to a lovely son. She spent lots of time in the hospital while being pregnant. She had a very good gyny and, maybe, due to her professionalism she gave a birth to a child. I think if your diabetes is a tough one, it’s better not to risk. You may browse some fertility forums to find feedbacks about surrogacy. As for the clinics, I think you should choose the clinic that really suits you. You must feel comfortable and trust them. If you don’t like certain things, it’s better to quit. I know that there are some forums where you can find feedbacks about fertility clinics around the world. You may search such forum and try to find feedbacks about the clinic you’ve got interested there. At any rate, I wish you good luck in your surrogacy journey!
