~~Thank you for having a heart big enough to want to be involved as a Surrogate Mother~~
This is not for everyone and the fact that you are looking, means that you could have what it takes. Here is a list of what our services will provide for your Intended Parents, which in turn will provide you with a high level of service and commitment during this journey. (Please contact us with any questions or comments that you might have.)
If an Egg Donor is chosen to work with you these services include:
We realize that you may have set your own fees, or have an idea of where your compensation needs to fall; however, we are providing an idea of approximately where industry standards are falling presently.Please feel free to discuss this topic with us.
Estimated Surrogate Base Compensation
Typically, Surrogates compensation will be distributed monthly on the 1st of the following month upon IVF Physician verification of 2nd fetal heartbeat with a balloon payment upon delivery.
The reason these fees are estimated is that the Surrogate may have a lower or higher than average compensation request. We will work to keep all fees as close to this estimation as possible.
Possible Additional Surrogate Compensation
Medical coverage for maternity: Intended parents are responsible for monthly premiums, deductibles, co-payments and any remaining balance due to the pregnancy regardless of insurance type. If you do not have health insurance, or if your health insurance has an exclusion to surrogacy, we will assist you in applying for insurance.
All fees listed are quoted in US Dollars and are reasonable estimations based on industry standards.
All of the fees listed are negotiable during the contract phase and can be subject to change at any time without notice prior to contract signing with the surrogate.
Before Intended Parents and Surrogates are sent to their attorneys for contract negotiations, the Agency will provide a worksheet to ensure the Intended Parents and Surrogates have similar views for the pregnancy and fee schedule.
Wombs of Hope is committed to serve the Intended Parents, Surrogate and Egg Donors throughout the term of our Agreement. Our goal is that all parties will be gratefully satisfied during the matching, contract and cycling phases, during the pregnancy and after the birth until all aspects of the journey are complete.
~~I have had a passion for surrogacy for many years. I became a surrogate in 2001 and by referrals started a small agency with my vast experience in the field. I am very much hands on and provide very personal attention. I have created more babies and families for others than I could ever have imagined. I make the process of surrogacy as affordable and simple a process as it can be. I know and have worked with most of the Bay Area doctors and lawyers. I pretty much take care of everything, including contracts, and attend most appointments so that you can sit back and enjoy the journey of creating your family. Look forward to speaking with you further.
