Should I Stay In Touch With My Egg Donor Post Birth?

Victoria T. Ferrara of Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists discusses how common it is for new dads to keep in contact with their egg donor after the birth of their child.

Is it common to stay in contact with my egg donor post-birth?

Egg donors are young and they have their whole lives ahead of them and their lives will change over time. They will be getting into relationships and marriages and having their own children. So it's not as certain that they would like to keep in touch after the birth of your baby or children. If you're interested in that you should check in with the egg donor when you're in the egg donation matching process. If you think you would like to have a donor who's available to you or your child after the birth, then look for an egg donor who's willing to do that.

What if I have an emergency and need to contact them?

We always keep some provisions and contracts that say that people will be available for contact in case there's a medical issue but whether or not you have a close connection is more questionable. Your relationship with your surrogate can often be more intimate than your relationship to your egg donor. As always, planning can get you to the place where you want to be in connection with contact availability after the birth with your egg donor.
