Surrogate Mother!

When a woman is infertile or unable to carry a pregnancy to term, she (and her partner/husband) may choose to commission a surrogate motherto carry a child for her.

Even though stories of surrogacy date back thousands of years, it wasn’t until the mid seventies that formal contractual agreements were made between prospective parents and a third party carrier.

Surrogacy is still extremely controversial even though agencies abound and the process has become more successful. Better surrogate selection and improved legal contracts have made for happier outcomes for both carriers and parents.

While surrogate mothers in the U.S. earn about $20,000.00, for their services, international surrogates can expect to earn from $2,500 to $6,500 for acting as an artificially inseminated or gestational carrier.

Many U.S. and British couples are turning to other countries to find qualified surrogate mothers.
