Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • Why would somebody want to become a surrogate?

    This is a very personal answer that is different to every woman who becomes a surrogate. A very common reason I hear: “It’s incredibly rewarding to give intended parents the gift of a family they cannot create on their own.”

    Speaking to my own experience, I feel that life is about helping others. If you can, you simply should. It was important for me to teach a valuable lesson to my children about giving back to others. I wanted to make an impact in someone else’s lives in the best way I knew how. Having babies was my gift. Why not use that gift to help others. Through the process I also saw the ripple effect of surrogacy. It never is just the parents of the baby that are changed – everyone around you and them see and begin to process your choice differently. It’s incredible to experience such beauty unfold.

  • How much does a surrogate get paid?

    Canadian Law does not allow for women to be compensated for being a surrogate, but she can be reimbursed for an array of expenses related to the pregnancy. Typically, we see reimbursements starting at a total of $20,000 – $30,000. During the pregnancy, we expect surrogates to be pampered by their Intended Parents.

    Some reimbursable expenses can include:

    • Internet bill & cell phone charges
    • Mileage for driving to surrogacy related locations
    • Maternity clothes, vitamins & supplements
    • Housekeeping and snow removal
    • Counselling expenses
    • Wellness expenses such as gym membership, massage, chiropractic care, foot care, & yoga
    • Hygiene products and pregnancy supports
    • Lost wages
    • Groceries
  • Are they using my egg?

    It’s important to know the difference between Gestational Surrogacy and Traditional Surrogacy. With gestational surrogacy, you have no biological relation to the baby. The Intended Parents are the biological relation or they have a third party donor and they create embryos that are transferred into their surrogate’s womb.

    Traditional surrogacy is when the surrogate uses their own eggs and they are biologically related to the child. For many reasons, we do not participate in traditional surrogacy through our programs.

  • Will surrogacy impact my job and or my lifestyle?

    Surrogacy comes with the same risks of normal pregnancy. With a previous pregnancy history of no complications, it is unlikely that anything would change during a surrogacy pregnancy. But there are always risks no matter what. We try and make all women well aware of the implications of the choice they make. There is always a bedrest clause in your contract to ensure all lost wages, daycare for your kids, and any help to support your lifestyle would be taken care of financially by your Intended Parents. Bedrest is very rare. Most of our surrogates have carried full-term without any complications.

  • Are there any financial obligations for me as the surrogate?

    No. Any pregnancy or surrogacy-related costs are reimbursed or paid directly by the intended parent(s).

  • Do I get to choose the intended parents?

    Of course! We believe that trust and respect is built through finding the right match for you. It is always your choice who you want to help. The intended parents we work with represent a wide range of races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religions, economic backgrounds, and ages. We are sure you’ll find a profile that speaks to you! You can preview Intended Parent profiles here.

    Once you have completed medical screening, you will get to review the full profiles for all couples and choose 3-5 couples that you want to get to know better. You get to meet them and truly figure out which couple is best for you.

  • What does the process look like after I submit an application?

    Great question! We deep dive into the process here.

Kate's Story

I had the great pleasure of being introduced to Angela and the Canadian Surrogacy Community though a dear friend. I had always been interested in being a surrogate but never knew how to go about it. I was blessed with two beautiful children of my own and was heartbroken to watch others struggle or be stripped of the ability to create a family of their own. Angela was wonderful and so supportive. She walked me though the whole process and provided ongoing support throughout the entire journey. Any questions I had she was there to help me answer. Anything from nausea remedies to explaining to me multiple times what each medication was for, she was there. The Canadian Surrogacy Community is such an imperative part of the surrogacy journey for both the surrogate and the intended parent. Without Angela and her team so many of us would not have found our perfect match. Thank you CSC for your tireless support, compassion and love you provide to this community. You truly make dreams come true.
