About This Forum

Kathleen is a wonderful wife and doting mother via GS. Her miracle baby Grace was born via surrogate (and best friend) in March of 2006 and she is actively on her way to journey for a sibling.

My name is Shauna. I am happily married to my DH for 8 yrs, together for 11. We have 1 beautiful daughter that was born to us through Traditional surrogacy. She was born in March 2005, and is the absolute light of our lives. We live in the province Alberta in Canada. I have been involved in the Surrogacy community since 2001. I am now a retired Former Intended Mother, but love to offer support, my friendship, or try to answer any questions anyone may have regarding surrogacy from an IM POV.

Questions asked in this forum will not show up until they are answered by Kathleen or Shauna. If you want answers from several IP's, please post in another section.

I would like to get some advice on how things are usually done, we havent seen a lawyer yet, we are just talking with a lady online about being a surrogate mother. How does it usually go, before signing the contract you have to have all the money for compensation up front, like in a account or something? The lady I am talking with thinks that an all inclusive fee works best, not sure exactly what that means. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it.

Hi hope2bamomsoon and welcome to AAS!!

I suggest you find a lawyer experienced in surrogacy and do a consultation. Some issues do vary depending on the state your GS or TS is delivering in. It's best to have all the money you'll need for the journey ahead of time, you can either set it up in an escrow acct or you can handle it yourself.

If you read thru the "Surrogacy" forum and the "Insurance and Contracts" forum you'll find a ton of information. Feel free to ask questions in any of the forums to get some insight into the necessary steps and time involved in the process. Good luck in your journey and keep the faith!!!
