If you are a single or a couple and opting for surrogacy as the option for you to have a child and wish to avoid the emotional disturbance that can come with a “negative result” in the first attempt, then hiring two surrogates together in the first attempt might be your choice.
This option comes with its own pressure that if both the surrogates get pregnant, then more than likely you will have more babies than one. Only if you are emotionally and financially prepared for the same, that you may choose this option.
For couple who have had many failed IVF’s and for couples and singles who have tried a lot and their emotional quotient for more tries is depleting, it may be the right one.
The success rate of having at least one positive pregnancy is more with hiring two surrogates. The success rate of a positive pregnancy with one surrogate is almost 80% in the first attempt while hiring two surrogates.
The cost of hiring the second surrogate is almost similar to hiring the fist surrogate. IVF charges are reduced as the IVF is done in one attempt only with the eggs of female intended parent or the egg donor and usually the surrogacy clinics should be able to have enough mature embryos for transfer in two surrogates together.
