It is very important that a Surrogate live a healthy lifestyle (smoke free environment, no drinking alcohol or caffeine, and no drugs). Eating healthy, well balanced meals and a wide variety of food is essential to having a healthy pregnancy. Being in an emotionally well balanced life is needed as well. It is necessary for a Surrogate to be happy with her own life and willing to give. You must have had a healthy full term pregnancy/pregnancies yourself. A surrogate must be willing to take the responsibility of caring for the unborn child for the Intended Parents, this includes attending medical appointments and being reliable with communication.
