9 Reasons Becoming a Surrogate Is So Rewarding

March 11, 2024

Are you thinking about becoming a surrogate? While it’s a big commitment, it’s also a life-changing and fantastic journey for YOU and everyone involved. When you apply to become a surrogate, you are committing to be “all in” to help intended parents achieve their dreams of parenthood. Are you ready to embrace the responsibility of transforming lives as a surrogate? We understand it’s a lot to take on … but here are 9 reasons becoming a surrogate is such a rewarding experience for women who choose to walk this path. 

1. Giving the gift of life.

As a surrogate, you get to give one of life's greatest gifts.  From the moment children come into our lives, our world changes for the better. Parents are suddenly filled with enormous love and devotion for their tiny new bundle. A baby’s first smile, giggle, steps, and words are just a few of the simple but extraordinary milestones that make parenthood a joyous experience. Helping someone else experience these treasures is one of the greatest gifts you can pass on to intended parents.

2. Forming lifelong bonds.

Through surrogacy, you’ll form unique, long-lasting connections. The surrogacy process forever binds the lives of surrogates, intended parents, and children. The relationship created through the surrogacy process is one that takes exceptional care to respect and maintain throughout the journey. Many surrogates and their chosen families remain in touch and share a meaningful connection long after the baby is born and the surrogacy process officially concludes.

3. Receiving financial compensation.

While financial compensation may not be your primary goal for becoming a surrogate, the money you receive can significantly benefit you and your family while helping another family fulfill their dreams. Our goal is to ensure that every surrogate is supported and cared for emotionally and financially throughout the surrogacy journey.

4. Having a say during each stage of your journey.

As a surrogate, we empower you to play an active role in the matching process. During the application process, we encourage you to share your specific preferences, including what your ideal IP relationship looks like. Being “on the same page” helps ensure you’re matched with a like-minded agency and family and sets the tone for a positive surrogacy experience. Throughout your journey, we’ll continue to prioritize your communication and feedback.

5. Gaining a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Becoming a surrogate is an amazing act of kindness to help intended parents fulfill their family-building dreams. The sense of accomplishment and pride you gain from this selfless act will stay with you forever!

6. Feeling supported 24/7.

Throughout each stage of your surrogacy journey—from the IVF process, pregnancy, delivery, and post-delivery—your comfort and care will be coordinated and monitored by your surrogacy support community. In addition to the support you receive from your intended parents and surrogacy agency, you can be sure we’ll have your back!

7. Creating all kinds of forever families.

The community supports families of all backgrounds, including heterosexual, LGBTQIA+ intended parents, and individuals and couples from all over the world. During the application and screening process, you’re encouraged to voice your honest preferences about who you’re comfortable matching with—with no judgment whatsoever.

8. Setting a good example. 

Your selfless act of surrogacy sets a shining example for others who may be unfamiliar with the surrogacy process. We provide you with tools and resources to communicate and share your experience with others, including your partner, children, friends, and neighbors.

9. Becoming part of an amazing community.

When you join our community, you’re connected with other compassionate, selfless women who make the dream of family-building possible for others. We’re a space for cultivating connections and communication and sharing the ups and downs of surrogacy. Many of the surrogates in our community form strong friendships and bonds that last well beyond their surrogacy journey.
