When Jessica Allen signed up to become a surrogate, she thought it would be an easy way to help out someone in need. Allen, who was already a mother of two sons, knew the ins and outs of pregnancy. She followed the rules and the surrogacy seemed to go off without a hitch…until the delivery room when things got messy.
The months that followed led Allen to share her story with the world. She told People, “I’d never do it again. I’m not the only one with a nightmare story, but I am the only one with a story like this.” Read on to see what happened in the delivery room that changed everything.
Jessica Allen Thought The Couple She Was Helping Meant Well
Jessica Allen, a California mom of two, thought she was doing a nice thing by signing on to be the surrogate of a lovely Chinese couple. Since surrogacy is illegal in China, the couple came all the way to the U.S. in order to find a surrogate that would have their baby.
Anyone who has struggled to conceive is likely familiar with the emotional and physical trauma the Chinese couple must have gone through to resort to surrogacy. There’s no doubt that what Allen was doing for them was a wonderful thing.
