3 Reasons to Become a Surrogate

Surrogates have reported dozens of unique reasons why becoming a surrogate was the best thing in their situation. These three were the most common and, for many, the most important:

Reason 1: To Give the Greatest Gift

You know how important family is, and becoming a surrogate is a way to give this gift to someone who could never have it without you. Surrogates make the impossible, possible.

Intended parents have often taken a long, painful road to reach this place. When you become a surrogate, you carry their hopes and dreams into the world. It is not an overstatement to say there is no more meaningful thing any person could do for another, and this is one of the biggest reasons to become a surrogate.

Reason 2: To Improve Your Family’s Life

As a mother, we know there’s nothing more important than your family. By becoming a surrogate, you can improve your family’s life.


Surrogates have used their compensation for things like starting a college fund, taking the family to Disneyland and becoming debt-free.

Surrogate compensation, which ranges from $50,000 – $90,000 for first-time surrogates, can be a significant boost to your financial situation. Plus, becoming a surrogate sets a great example for your kids.

Reason 3: To Accomplish Something Incredible

Surrogates are life-changers. Difference-makers. According to some intended parents, real-life superheroes.

Anyone who becomes a surrogate can take pride in knowing they’ve done something very few people will ever do. Not only can this give you a personal sense of accomplishment, but it also sets an example for your children and others in your life.

When given the opportunity to do something challenging, you embraced it because you knew how important it was. This life lesson can shape your children, helping them become the type of people who also jump at the opportunity to do something truly incredible.
