A gestational carrier, also known as a surrogate, undergoes a screening process before being approved for the role. A psychological evaluation is a crucial part of this process. The purpose is to ensure that the gestational carrier is mentally and emotionally prepared for the responsibilities and potential challenges that come with carrying a child for the intended parents.
Here are some aspects commonly covered in a gestational carrier's psychological evaluation:
Mental Health Assessment
Motivation and Understanding
Expectations and Boundaries
The evaluation aims to select individuals who demonstrate a strong psychological readiness and commitment to undergo the surrogacy process in a healthy and responsible manner.
