Luckily Surrogacy is Not a Job Requirement

The customer asked her, “Will you have my baby?” But it’s definitely not what you think.




Luckily Surrogacy is Not a Job Requirement

Last year, we had a long time patient come in, prop her elbows on the counter, and proceeded to tell me her eggs were getting old and she was worried if she would be able to have any more children. Then her face brightened, and she looked at me, and asked, “Have you ever considered being a surrogate? You would be great, you’re still so young and healthy.” Fortunately, our Employee Handbook does not list surrogacy under any of the job requirements. I politely declined the honor. — Jen Heller, Pend Oreille Vision Care, Sandpoint, ID
