Lots of mothers choose to have their “tubes tied” or tubal ligation after they have delivered their last child. Many families choose this as their permanent form of birth control. Later in life, though, many women decide they want to start the journey of helping other couples become families and enter the amazing world of surrogacy.

However, many wonder, “Can I be a surrogate if my tubes are tied?”

The answer at Shared Conception is a resounding “yes!”

Our surrogacy agency, Shared Conception, only accepts gestational surrogates, so the intended parents’ egg and sperm are used and not the surrogate’s eggs. The surrogate is implanted with an embryo from the intended parents. Therefore, a gestational surrogate is not biologically related to the child she is carrying. A woman who has undergone tubal ligation is a wonderful candidate for our type of surrogacy.
