The first piece of the surrogacy puzzle is whether intended parents (IPs) want a singleton or twins! Emotionally, I have twins and if I could I would have twins again, but we had a relatively stress-free pregnancy and birth. We were lucky as this is not always the case.

I interviewed Georges Sylvestre MD, a very well respected High-Risk Pregnancy obstetrician based in the US, about his opinions on singleton vs twins. Dr Sylvestre has 20+ years of experience in the field, and just happens to be a gay dad via surrogacy.

RW: Why do you think most IPs want twins?

GS: Having kids via surrogacy is SOOO expensive that it sounds logical to have a single journey with twins that costs less than two singleton journeys.
