Can I do a second journey if I had gestational diabetes during my first surrogacy pregnancy?

Where am I?

The answer would be: “maybe”

Gestational diabetes can very serious if severe and/or left untreated.  Most agencies and physicians will need to look at your official medical records to better assess.  However, gestational diabetes can usually be curbed by losing weight before becoming pregnant (BMI of under 30) and maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine during pregnancy.  At Elevate we offer at-home workout and nutrition plans to our of all surrogates free of charge.  If you’d like to speak so someone more in-depth regarding this issue, please let me know!
