Advantages of Working With a Surrogacy Agency
We honor you for considering becoming a surrogate. Our mission is to create matches and journeys filled with warmth, love, and generosity of spirit. When you work with Advocates for Surrogacy, you will begin your journey with an agency that has committed clients who are motivated to begin, have their finances in order, and have been vetted by our agency. You will not find yourself wasting your time with Intended Parents who may not be ready to begin or fully commit to the surrogacy process. We will help you to understand the process, what will be expected, the time commitments necessary and provide support including from experienced surrogates. Take a minute to contact us and we can see if our agency is the right fit for you.
Exploring What is Important to You in Your Surrogacy Journey
Once you decide to become a surrogate, we explore issues that are important to you such as the kind of relationship that you seek with your Intended Parent(s), your compensation requirements, and your opinions about medical decisions that you may need to make. These are issues which we know to be important in finding the right match for you.
Guiding You Through the Process
Once you are matched, you will go through a screening process. We will be beside you every step of the way, guiding you, helping you with appointments and troubleshooting any problems that may arise.
Generous Surrogate Benefits
In addition to generous compensation, we make sure you have proper health insurance for your journey. If you don’t have insurance or your insurance has surrogacy exclusions we will arrange for you to be insured at no cost to you. If you are insured through a private policy, we have expert brokers who will review your insurance to determine whether there are surrogacy exclusions. You will also receive life insurance. You and your spouse/significant other will receive lost wages, child care, and housekeeping support during your journey. You will receive a generous maternity clothing allowance.
The Legal Process of Surrogacy
Once you complete your screening successfully, you and your Intended Parents are ready to enter into your contract. You will have an experienced attorney represent you at no cost to you. Your Intended Parents will have their own attorney. Before you begin the medical process, your compensation and reimbursements will be placed in an escrow account held by an independent escrow company so that you can move forward with peace of mind that you are financially protected during your journey.
