Over the course of the past decade, surrogate pregnancies have become increasingly more common throughout the United States. Although it may not have been even a possibility in the past, the gift of becoming a parent is now a reality for all different families as a direct result of gestational surrogacy. Whether you are a traditional couple, a single man, a single woman, or a same sex couple, gestational surrogacy is a wonderful option and for many, the answer to fulfilling the dream of having a child.
At face value, the surrogacy journey may seem daunting; however, as surrogacy continues to rise in popularity, it also is becoming much more acceptable, both culturally and socially. With this substantial boost in acceptance also come benefits in other areas pertaining to surrogacy, such as heightened legal security, stronger screening and matching, and a greater variety of financial help and alternatives to best assist any intended parent or couple. Specific areas of help and acceptance for gestational surrogates and intended parents now include:
- Matching and screening process. All interested potential surrogates and intended parents working with an agency are first required to undergo substantial physical and psychological screenings. Once surrogates and intended parents are thoroughly vetted, their agency will work to find them their best match for values, lifestyle, and comfort levels to ensure the smoothest and happiest journey for all parties involved.
- Legal advice. Entering a surrogacy contract requires a great understanding of legalese in regards to medical bills, finances, and insurance coverage. Fortunately, thanks to the rise of surrogacy in the U.S., specialized surrogacy attorneys are available to help you make the best decisions for your family and thoroughly understand the contract you are entering into.
- Financial assistance. Today, several methods of financial help are available to intended parents looking to pursue surrogacy. Infertility loans, IVF grants, and agency payment schedules are all great options for helping finance surrogacy.
