Be a Surrogate Mother

Surrogacy Compensation

As surrogate mothers go on with their surrogacy journey they come to the point where they are asked what their “fee” is. They may be asked this by and agency, a potential intended parent or even just a friend or family member. This question sounds simple enough but it is not. The compensation a surrogate mother receives may or may not include some or all of the many expenses the surrogate pregnancy will create for the surrogate and her family. For this reason there is no flat answer unless the proposed contract specifically allows for reimbursement for each and every surrogacy induced cost which before you has a contract you will not know if this applies to you. This means that while one surrogate may say she is asking for only $5,000 for her acting as a surrogate mother she may be receiving more than another woman who says she is receiving $20,000. Whether you are working with an agency or not may greatly change how much money you and your family require in order to do the surrogacy arrangement.

Figuring out exactly how much money you will need in order to do a surrogacy is can be complicated because you must imagine how much money you will need in each and every possible scenario to assure XXXXX. The best way to do this is to sit down with your partner, close friend or other family member and list some guesstimations on a pad of paper. The easiest way to begin this daunting task is too consider the costs in the order they would come up.

It should be noted that in some states it is illegal for a surrogate to receive a fee. In these situations the surrogacy is looked at as an adoption so the fee is disguised as living expenses. In these contracts a surrogate mother calculates costs of rent, car insurance, utility bills, childcare, etc. and the IPs agree to pay them.

Becoming a Surrogate Mother
If you want to become a surrogate mother you require preparing and educating yourself. For women considering the option of surrogacy, understanding the process involved in approval for surrogacy, the emotional and psychological implication as well as the physical implications will provide for a more educated decision process. You must read articles, books, internet for detailed information about all the process and legal issues. Take time to think about the effects of a pregnancy on your life. Contact surrogate agencies and independent surrogate so you can decide which option is good for you.

The main reason for becoming a surrogate mother should not be financial, but one made out of the deep desire to help another couple. There are two means to become a surrogate mother. One is through an agency. The other is to be an independent surrogate.

Now Playing: Types Of Surrogacy

Traditional Surrogacy
An arrangement between the intended parents of the child and a woman who agrees to donate her egg to be artificially inseminated with the sperm of the intended father. In most states the intended mother does a step-parent adoption after the birth in order to establish her parental rights and so that the surrogate will relinquish her rights regarding the child.

Gestational Surrogacy
An arrangement between the intended parents of the child and a woman who agrees to carry the embryo made from the egg and sperm of the intended parents. The child of gestational surrogacy is the genetic child of the intended parents, and the surrogate carries the embryo/fetus to term in the role of host uterus.

Donor Egg
Arrangement between the intended parents of the child and a woman who agrees to carry the embryo made from the egg of a third party donor and sperm of the intended father. The surrogate carries the embryo/fetus to term as a host uterus since there is no biological tie between the surrogate and the embryo/fetus. In this form of surrogacy, the surrogate may also be called the "gestational carrier".
