Hi, I’m Lorraine.
Here’s the brutal truth about surrogacy/infertility:
The average intended parents wait 8 painful years to find a surrogate.
Could it be next week? Could it be tomorrow? Imagine waiting in limbo for years, not knowing when you’ll find your match so you can finally start your family.
On the other side, thousands of Canadian mothers could be a perfect fit, but you’re just not sure if you can do it…
“…isn’t being a surrogate expensive?”
“…will I get attached to the baby?”
“…can I give birth in my own town?”
I had the same thoughts when I started my surrogacy journey in 2005. A close friend of mine was struggling with infertility, and I couldn’t stop thinking “What if that were me?”.
I wanted to help, but I couldn’t afford to pay for everything on my own. In fact, I wasn’t going to be able to pay for almost anything on my own – all I had was my blood and sweat and tears to offer (and more practically my uterus 😂).
It’s illegal to get paid (ie. make a profit) for being a surrogate in Canada, so I felt stuck. But then I found out that surrogate mothers’ expenses are reimbursed, 100%.
From living expenses to post-birth recovery! It turns out I wouldn’t need to pay for anything at all.
It wasn’t about money for me though. It was about the heartbreak of imagining those parents not able to give love for the better part of a decade.
Remember when your child farted on you? I do, and I wanted to help someone else experience those precious, hilarious, gross moments too.
If you’re serious about seeing if you’d be a good surrogate, I’d love to have a comfortable chat and see whether surrogacy is a good fit for you. You’ll get all the info you need to make the best decision for you and your family (and hopefully for the new parents too!)
Before you’re ready for that, you need to know how much you’ll be reimbursed throughout the process. So let’s start there.
