Benefits of Surrogacy

Fathers With Kids on Their Shoulders

There are many amazing aspects to surrogacy, both for the surrogate and the intended parents. Surrogacy is a beautiful way to bring families together and create new life.

For the surrogate, it can be an incredibly rewarding experience to help another family achieve their dreams of becoming parents. You have the unique opportunity to give them that gift. In addition, surrogates often form strong bonds with the parents and develop lasting relationships. 

The intended parents also benefit greatly from surrogacy, as they are able to have a child that they may not have been able to have otherwise. Additionally, it provides an amazing medical opportunity for those with fertility issues. If you are considering surrogacy, be sure to learn about all the great perks of this life-changing journey.

Here are some of the major benefits of surrogacy:

For Surrogates

Imagine being able to help someone have a family. For many intended parents, this is a dream come true. Surrogacy offers amazing women the chance to have a pregnancy while helping another person achieve their goal of becoming a parent as well.

Surrogates are amazing people who help others bring a child into the world. By carrying and giving birth to a baby for another person or couple, surrogates provide the gift of parenthood to those who may not be able to build their family by themselves.

In addition to the satisfaction of helping someone realize their dream of becoming a parent, surrogates also benefit financially from their act of altruism. In most cases, surrogates are compensated for their time, effort, and expenses related to the pregnancy and delivery. As a result, surrogates are able to help create families while also improve their own financial well-being. It is truly a win-win situation for all involved.

If you're considering becoming a gestational carrier, it's important to understand all the different benefits of surrogacy.

Helping Others

When you help hopeful parents have a baby, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you've greatly contributed to creating a family and given someone the greatest gift they could ever receive. Surrogacy is a great way for many women to give back, and it's an incredibly selfless act.

One of the biggest benefits of carrying a child for intended parents is the feeling of helping someone grow their family. It can be a very powerful and rewarding experience to be able to give another person or couple the gift of a baby that they may not have been able to have on their own. Being a surrogate is an emotionally rewarding experience for this reason.

Lasting Relationships

You'll develop a close bond with the intended parents, and they'll be forever grateful to you. Many surrogates form strong and lasting relationships with the intended parents. The bond you'll share is a special one, and it can open up many opportunities for you to fulfill your own dreams or goals beyond the surrogacy experience.

Also, depending on your relationship with the family, it can be a wonderful opportunity to watch the child you helped bring into the world grow up.

Experience Pregnancy

You get to experience pregnancy and childbirth, even if you don't plan on having any more children of your own. You will receive all the support you need throughout the process from both the intended parents and medical professionals.

Financial Compensation

For women who decide on surrogacy, you will have financial compensation for your services. Surrogacy is a great way to meet financial goals while doing something that is meaningful and altruistic.

At Vermont Surrogacy Network, all legal fees and the consultation for the carrier agreement is paid for by the hopeful parents.

For Intended Parents

Being unable to have biological children is a reality for many people who are trying to build their own families. Thankfully, surrogacy is an option for those who want to have a biological child. It is a way for families to have the children they've always wanted.

When you're trying to have a baby, every option is on the table. Each year, more and more couples are choosing to become parents through surrogacy. If you want to choose surrogacy for you and your family members, here are some of the benefits of surrogacy that you should know about.

Have Your Own Child

Surrogacy can be an option for non-traditional families such as same-sex couples or singles who would be otherwise unable to have a genetically related child. One of the major benefits of surrogacy is the special experience of being able to raise your own child from birth.

With gestational surrogacy, your baby will be biologically related to one or both parents.

Be Involved in the Pregnancy Journey

When you choose a surrogate to build your family, you can have a say in the pregnancy journey and what happens during labor and delivery. Surrogacy parents get to experience the joys of pregnancy and childbirth alongside the surrogate.

You will have the opportunity to choose your surrogate, who will be a healthy woman. The prospective surrogate undergoes extensive medical and psychological screening.

If you want to use an egg donor, you can choose whichever one you like best from a list provided by the agency or clinic you are working with. This gives you more control over your child’s genetics and increases your chances for a healthy baby.

Financial Benefits

Infertility treatments can be expensive, but with surrogacy all those costs are eliminated. The overall cost of the process is significantly lower than a traditional fertility clinic. Also, the surrogacy process is less expensive than traditional adoption fees.

Better Chance of Success

For many couples, traditional methods of trying to conceive do not work. Through surrogacy, you have a higher chance of getting pregnant and having a baby. The surrogate will be the one who is pregnant and giving birth, so there are no health risks of that kind for you.

Less Stress

Tensions can run high when trying to conceive naturally, but with surrogacy all that stress is eliminated. The surrogate will carry the baby for you, taking away any worry or stress you may have had about conceiving.

Bring Life into the World

Surrogacy is an amazing way to help another family while also forming a lasting bond.
