What is a Gestational Carrier? Is a woman who undergoes an embryo transfer consisting of an embryo produced by another couple with the intention to give the resulting baby back to the genetic parents.
Do I have to pay anything if I decided to become a Gestional Carrier? For the most part the answer is no. If you currently have insurance than you will continue to pay your insurance as you normally would. You may have to pick up a prescription but will be reimbursed immediately. The intended parents for all medical testing, fertility procedures, and out of pocket costs pertaining to the surrogacy pregnancy.
Will I have to take shots if I decide to be a Gestational Carrier? Unfortunately yes. But- they are not as bad as you may think. Each fertility clinic has different medical protocols so one clinic may require three different shots while another may just require one. After a few weeks of injecting yourself you will get used to it and it will become more annoying than anything else. At approximately 9 weeks pregnant you will be able to stop taking these medications.

What if I do not believe in termination or reduction? We believe everyone has the right to choose. If you do not feel comfortable terminating then we will match you with a couple that feels the same way. It is not an easy choice to make and if the time comes when one of our carriers has to go through that procedure it will be checked and double checked to make sure that is the only option.
