What Are the Benefits of Becoming a Surrogate?

Considering becoming a surrogate mother? It’s important to know how your life will change, and learn about the ways you can grow from the experience. As a surrogate mother for intended parents, many of whom have struggled for years to start their families, you are a hero. You are the key to making their dream come true.

Every surrogacy is different, so naturally, women’s experiences vary. Still, each surrogacy is life-changing, and there are challenges, rewards and benefits throughout every journey.

Benefits of becoming a surrogate

Here are some ways surrogacy can benefit you:

  • You may gain a sense of satisfaction and pride knowing you’re helping another family in such a life-altering way.
  • In sharing your pregnancy with the intended parents, you may develop a deep bond. Many surrogates enjoy lasting relationships with the families they help create.
  • If you enjoy being pregnant, but your family is complete, surrogacy is a way to experience pregnancy again.
  • You can feel a sense of community with other surrogates.
  • Many surrogates choose to include family members and friends in the process. Should you decide to do this, you can set an example of selflessness and generosity for those around you.
  • At the California Center for Reproductive Medicine, you will have access to a variety of services, including care and counseling from a world-renowned, dual-board certified physician and a caring, all-female staff.
  • You will receive a base compensation that can be applied to your financial goals, such as saving for a house or college education. Also, pregnancy-related expenses, such as insurance, are covered during your pregnancy.
