There's a mention that a Lord Holder (Raid?) objected to his chattels bearing dragon-seed, but that might just mean that the child would be either fostered at the Weyr or taken on Search later on, instead of working on the Lord's Hold. Taking the mother to the Weyr would be an economic burden.
Yes, they bring girls to the Weyr, but we haven't seen girls being Searched to be green riders yet. That'd be intriguing.
