Usually Intended Parents perceive surrogacy quite positively as this is the only chance for them to become parents.  Still some problems can occur but they are minimal if both Intended Parents are biological parents of a future child.

With good psychological counselling provided Surrogates do not experience serious issues though some of them feel hard time to relinquish a child. There are a few exceptional cases when a Surrogate refused to give a child to Intended Parents. Thai is why it is important to engage a woman having at least one child already.

All participants are to be psychologically screened before the programme to clear out if they match for it and which discomfort and difficulties they may experience during the programme. In addition, all of them have opportunity to address to psychologist for appropriate correction at any stage of a programme.
