Become a Surrogate

When you choose to become a surrogate, you’re giving a gift unlike any other. You’re giving the gift of life and helping to create a family for those who are not able to have children on their own.

If giving to others comes second nature to you, consider becoming a surrogate.

You can help others experience the joy of parenthood.

Some women choose to become surrogates, so they can stay at home and spend more time with their families, while still supporting them. Surrogates receive compensation starting at $35,000 and have used it toward buying a home, paying off bills or student loans, even starting businesses!

Who We Work With

The path to parenthood is not always an easy one. There are many reasons why people choose surrogacy to have children, known as Intended Parents. Each of their stories is unique, yet we do find they share common struggles that led them to surrogacy.

Intended Parents may include:

  • Heterosexual couples who have struggled for years with infertility and IVF
  • Same sex partners who want a child with a genetic connection to them
  • Single men who have not found a life partner, but are ready to start a family
  • Single women who cannot safely carry a child due to health risks or infertility

When you become a surrogate, you are able to help make their dreams of having a child, a reality. It’s an incredibly rewarding experience!
