Single Father Surrogacy – Tips and Tricks
Many people dream of the day that they can start a family. Sometimes this dream does not involve having a partner or spouse. If you are a single father through surrogacy or thinking of using surrogacy to become a single father, here are are some tips and tricks to help you throughout your single father surrogacy journey.
A large part of being able to succeed as a single father is finding support. This support can come from many different places and people. Having individuals to lean on and learn from is a great way to not only succeed as a single father, but also grow as one. Family and friends are always a great support system to have. Before you embark on a single father surrogacy journey, you should talk to your family and friends. Are they supportive of your decision? Are you educated on what it truly means to become a single father through surrogacy? Supportive family members and friends can make a large difference in your experience along this journey. Simple Surrogacy has helped many single fathers become parents through surrogacy, and through our reference program, we can put you in contact with them to address any questions they may have.
If you find that your family and friends are not being as supportive as you would like, there are many different forums and groups available online. Simple Surrogacy also offers a parent-only facebook group where you can seek and give advice. These forums and groups can provide you with confidence, advice, and show you that you are not going through this journey of single father surrogacy alone.
Make Time for You
It is important to make time for yourself during this surrogacy journey. Although you may be busy and overwhelmed, carving out even very small pieces of time for yourself is extremely important to the success of this process. Joining a club or making time to grab coffee with friends can greatly help when starting on your journey as a single father through surrogacy.
Find a Work Schedule that Works
Work and raising a child as a single father can quickly become overwhelming. If you decide to become a single father through surrogacy, we suggest that you closely examine your work schedule. If you are able to adjust your work schedule it can relieve a lot of stress and provide you with more time to bond with your new baby.
Activities are important for you and for your child. Do you participate in any activities outside of one’s with your child? Sometimes relieving stress and finding personal joy can be as easy as joining a gym or a softball team and being active 3 times a week.
Activities are also important for your child. Not only do activities get them outside and active, they also allow them to interact and play with other children their own age. From soccer to baseball, bowling to skating, there are many different activities that your child can participate in.
If you’re not interested in separate activities, or would like to add more activity into your routine, a father-child sport activity may be the answer. There are many different leagues and clubs that you can join, or you can plan separate trips and outings in order to combine activity with quality bonding time!
Plan for the Future
The future may be hard to plan for, but it is important to try. From financial preparedness to childcare and education; there are many different elements of the future that you should be ready for. Being a single parent can be difficult, but planning for the future can help provide you with the confidence that you were lacking.
