My partner and I have been talking about possibly looking for a surrogate when we are ready to have a baby. I no longer have my uterus (adenomyosis) but I still have my ovaries and he is in good normal health.
Are there people who do carry babies for others? would a home birth be an insane long shot?
I actually know someone who is planning on being a surrogate and wants a homebirth and she was wondering the same thing "is my having a homebirth a possibility?"
So I would recommend doing some research online about resources in your area.

Also, i would start looking around at your options for surrogacy. I have been a gestational surrogate and I used to own an agency that matched surrogates with intented parents. I can give you very specific break downs of what costs are. I no longer work in this field, but it can be as expensive, or as cost effective as you need it to be, but it is not cheap.
With all of that said, my intention with my first surrogacy was to have a birthing center birth. I would have gone with a home birth if the mother had been ok with it, but we compromised on a birthing center. I ended up with probably the most medically treated pregnancy any woman will get, but that was because I was pg with 4 babies, not one.
However, I know quite a few surrogates who have had home births, and it was a wonderful experience for the parents and the surrogate.
If you do not want to take too much medication, there is Natural IVF that could work for you. It involves retrieving your 1 monthly egg and fertilizing it. The only issue with that is the risk that it might not be mature or might not fertilize or the pregnancy might not take and then you have to do it over. In a stimulated cycle, you would ideally produce many embryos and the excess could be frozen for future transfers if it does not work the first time.
The cost of Natural IVF is lower than stimulated so it might be a viable option if you are willing to try more than once.
I work at a clinic that pioneered many of the newer applications for nIVF including using it for egg donation so if you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
We are out there! Good Luck
I have homebirthed 5 kids,2 of which were twins,very successfully. I would be looking at becomming a surrogate in about a year or more. My question is does the surrogate pay for maternity insurance?
