SURROGACY

Serving as a surrogate carrier is a challenging job, but you experience an enormous emotional reward through helping infertile couples fulfill their dream of having a baby. To be considered for surrogacy, you must be a healthy, drug-free woman between the ages of 21 and 40 who has already successfully carried at least one child of your own to term. It's also important to know that, if selected as a surrogate, you must be willing to undergo extensive medical testing and take fertility drugs as required for surrogacy process. And most importantly, you must be willing to have an extremely close relationship with the intended parents during the pregnancy.

Compensation for the time and effort of being a gestational surrogate carrier is negotiated between the surrogate and parents. NEEDS recommends compensation of $22,000 for a single birth and $27,000 for twins.
