Research Essay About Surrogacy: What Surrogate Mothers KnowA surrogate mother or the surrogate herself can write a research essay for your survey about any topic that relates to her specific circumstances. When you set up a research study, it is important to narrow topics and survey focus areas to match what the surrogate is already familiar with.
The most successful research projects begin with an extensive planning phase, involving the researcher, the project leader, project participants, and project management. While a research study may have been planned and agreed upon for several months or even years in advance, it is advisable to make the timeline as tight as possible so that all project aspects are considered when finalizing the project. When participants are informed that the study is a research project rather than an educational one, this will increase their willingness to participate.
It is also essential to have a surrogacy research essay ready before the research-based interview. If the surrogate is unfamiliar with the questions asked during the interviews, she may feel uncomfortable discussing certain issues. A surrogate is very knowledgeable and trained about her body, and there is nothing inherently 'wrong' with asking questions about the health, mental, emotional, and financial effects of her involvement in a surrogate motherhood agreement. The outcome of the study may determine the nature of the health care service, and the research essay will help project participants prepare for the types of questions that they are likely to be asked.
The specific facts and circumstances that led to the surrogate's decision to become a surrogate parent must be documented. This is necessary because if the surrogate refuses to answer a question, the project director has little recourse but to withdraw his support and possibly terminate the study. Some of the more difficult questions to answer include the psychological effects on the surrogate mother, and the emotional trauma of knowing that an intended child has been abandoned. A surrogate mother may suffer from loss of self-esteem due to her decision to become a surrogate parent, but such issues are often dealt with through support groups and support from others.
A surrogate must be capable of focusing on her own emotions and coping mechanisms as well as those of her surrogate mother. A surrogate must be able to concentrate on her role as a surrogate mother for the birth of the intended child. By researching and then writing about the actual experience of surrogacy, a surrogate may be able to understand and share her feelings better.
The surrogate mother should write about the importance of helping others and be honest about her feelings of inadequacy and loss. She should include detail about how her health care provider handled her recovery from premature labor. Asking about the emotional impact of dealing with the loss of a pregnancy and her intended child is another important topic to research. She should be open and honest about sharing her experiences so that the other participants of the research study can feel comfortable sharing their own experiences as well.
To assist the surrogate mother in writing a thoughtful and well-written essay, it is suggested that a direct translator is assigned. The translation team can do everything from use language and sentence structure to re-phrase the surrogate's responses. The project manager or the project leader can read the translation and review the wording before the project takes off.
Communication between the surrogate mother and the project manager or the project leader is also a major component of a research project. If possible, it is imperative that the project manager or the project leader to send a note of encouragement to the surrogate in writing after the project has started.
