Every surrogacy is different, and each surrogate may walk away from her experience with different benefits and rewards. However, each surrogacy is life-changing, and there is something to be gained from every journey.
Here are some of the main ways surrogacy can benefit these amazing women and their families. Surrogates enjoy a deep sense of personal satisfaction and pride knowing they have helped another family in such an incredible and life-altering way. Women who choose surrogacy are able to share their pregnancy journey with the intended parents and develop a strong bond throughout the process. Many surrogates develop lasting relationships with the families they help create. Surrogates allow women who enjoy being pregnant to experience pregnancy again, even if their own families are complete. Surrogates often enjoy a strong sense of community with other women who have been in their shoes. Surrogates involve their family members, friends, and other supportive people in the process and are able to set a wonderful example of selflessness and generosity for those around them. All of the surrogate’s expenses are paid for and reimbursed throughout the pregnancy, and she will enjoy a variety of services throughout the process, including top notch healthcare and counseling services. In compensated surrogacy, the surrogate also receives base compensation that can be applied to her financial goals, such as saving for a house or college education.
