Is surrogacy right for you?
Are you a healthy woman who has carried at least one pregnancy to full term without any major complications?
Is your partner supportive of your desires to help another family in this way? This will mean occasional travel and sharing medical details as well as leading a conscientious lifestyle.
Do you connect with the idea of helping a family through the gift of carrying a child for them? Do your friends describe you as considerate, communicative, open-minded and generous?
Are you looking for opportunities to support the long-term financial goals of your family? Surrogate mothers make between $40,000-$60,000 with generous perks and benefits.

Agreements, Pregnancy and Birth
Once you’ve been matched with a family, you and the attorneys will communicate openly (YFA will facilitate this for you!) to come up with an agreement and contract that works happily for everyone involved. It’s not uncommon for these terms to include stipulations like compensation, medical bill responsibility, schedules for appointments, and pregnancy lifestyle agreements (for example, if you’re an adventurous spirit, the parents may ask that you kindly wait to go skydiving until after the baby is born!)
Next up is the BIG DAY, the doctor will transfer the parent’s embryo into your uterus, and then we all eagerly await the miraculous moment, nine months later, when the parents are able to meet their precious bundle of joy for the very first time!
