I want to become a mom

Becoming a single mother by choice is now possible. Neither age nor marriage are obstacles when planning motherhood. A male partner isn’t even necessary in order to become a mother.

Currently, the aspiration to become a mother is not limited to the traditional family structure. The new family frameworks and conceptions that have emerged in recent years have been accompanied by advances in Reproductive Medicine. Age is no longer an obstacle when planning motherhood, neither is marriage, nor is having a male partner necessary in order to become a mother.

Single mother by choice

At WeFIV, we support and help women who have made the decision to embark on motherhood on their own. These are courageous women who do not hesitate to achieve their goals. The project of having a single-parent family is a great challenge, which is why it is important to do so with the support of a multidisciplinary team specialized in Assisted Reproduction and the emotional support of close relationships.

Making the decision

There are several factors that can affect moving forward and making the decision to plan a single-parent family, such as: job stability, financial solvency, a postponed desire for motherhood, not having a partner with whom to build a family, and the pressure of knowing that there is an age limit to becoming a mother. Beyond these aspects that impact family planning, making the decision is not usually easy for women who are considering becoming single mothers, as the social pressure to follow traditional norms is still present.

The Process

During the decision-making process, common doubts and insecurities may arise, such as thinking that by moving forward with their single-mother project, they are giving up on finding their ideal partner and starting a traditional family. Likewise, there are women who plan to become mothers in the future. For them, it is important that they freeze their eggs now to maintain good morphology so they can undergo Assisted Reproduction treatment later without the need for egg donation.

The importance of relationships

It is important for the future mother to identify her closest circle, where she will find a positive attitude, support, and love for her future child. Being a single mother does not mean being alone. The closest relationships of the future mother will actively participate in child-rearing and will be

there to provide support and assistance, which is why it is important for the woman to communicate how she feels about motherhood and what she expects from them during the process. Many women often hesitate to move forward with their motherhood project because they fear 

the reaction and malicious comments from their social environment. Although some people may be surprised by this decision, it is important for the woman not to lose confidence in herself. She should rely on those who respect her choice.

What treatments do we offer?

Among the treatments we offer at WeFIV, those recommended for women who wish to become single mothers are Intrauterine Insemination or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) using a Sperm Bank, and if necessary, Egg Donation. The choice of treatment will depend on the medical evaluation. Our team of professionals conducts an analysis of each case and provides personalized and comprehensive care for each woman so she has access to the best treatment.

Intrauterine Insemination

This low-complexity treatment aims to increase the chances of pregnancy by introducing sperm, previously selected in the laboratory, into the woman’s uterine cavity a few minutes before ovulation.

In Vitro Fertilization

This high-complexity treatment involves fertilization taking place outside the woman’s body in the laboratory.

Egg Donation

This option allows women who have not been able to become pregnant in assisted reproduction treatments with their own eggs, or who, due to physiological conditions, cannot use their eggs for In Vitro Fertilization, to carry out a pregnancy with a high success rate.

Sperm Bank

WeFIV donor samples should come from men between the ages of 18 and 40, who have good overall physical and reproductive health, and have undergone a psychological evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

For those women who say “I want to be a mother” and are considering options, WeFIV offers the possibility of carrying out an artificial insemination treatment to achieve this desire. This procedure is of low complexity and seeks to increase the chances of pregnancy.

The process consists of introducing sperm, which have been previously selected in the laboratory, directly into the woman’s uterine cavity, just a few minutes before ovulation.

It is a technique that facilitates the encounter between the egg and the sperm, being an excellent option for those who wish to become a single mother by insemination.

Nowadays, the desire to be a mother is not exclusively linked to the traditional family structure. At WeFIV, we accompany and assist women who have decided to embark on the path of motherhood independently.

For these brave women who seek to achieve their goals of motherhood, we offer treatments such as Artificial Insemination or In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), using a Sperm Bank. If necessary, Egg Donation is also an option.

The choice of the appropriate treatment will depend on the medical indication, and WeFIV performs a detailed analysis of each situation to provide personalized attention.

There is no exact age limit for being a single mother. However, it is important to keep in mind that age can significantly influence a woman’s reproductive capacity.

As time goes by, the quality and quantity of the eggs may decrease, which could affect the chances of pregnancy. Generally, specialists advise that women who wish to have a child with their own eggs, whether vitrified or not, should consider it before the age of 35, since after that age the ovarian quality tends to diminish.

If this age is exceeded or if there are other factors that affect the quality of the eggs, the option of Egg Donation can be considered, allowing many women to carry on with a pregnancy as a single mother with a high success rate.
