Surrogacy is an exciting journey for both prospective surrogate mothers and intended parents. However, it is also a complex process that requires you to be familiar with surrogacy laws, the medical process, and the best ways to protect yourself. Now, if you’re new to all of this, it might seem a little daunting. Well you don’t have to do it by yourself, it is important to recognize that independent surrogacy is an option.
However, we find that the independent surrogacy path where surrogates proceed without the mediation of an established surrogate agency offers them little to no protection against fraud, scammers, and unscrupulous individuals. Here at Joy of Life®, we recommend surrogates work with a reputable surrogate agency for reasons we’re going to explore below.
A Surrogate Agency Handles Most Everything
As a surrogate, one of the comforts of working with a surrogate agency is knowing that they are experienced professionals who will handle everything from start to finish. Trusted agencies like Joy of Life® will guide you from the moment you present yourself at our offices as a prospective surrogate to the day you change the lives of a hopeful intended parent or parents – and beyond.
A Surrogate Center Helps Select the Right Parents
Finding and matching with the right parents takes time. Where do you find them and how do you connect with them? Fortunately, if you’re working with a surrogate agency, they do all the heavy lifting of screening intended parents to present you with those individuals that best match your own surrogacy goals and objectives.
Ensure Your Medical Needs Are Taken Care Of
The surrogacy journey is fraught with numerous trips to the doctors and the fertility clinic. Our teams at Joy of Life® really care for each and every surrogate who comes to us for help. As former surrogates and intended parents, we are all too familiar with the medical needs surrounding surrogacy. We’re attentive and ensure that you are well taken care of.
Using a Surrogate Agency CA Ensures You’re Ready
The more you learn about the surrogacy process, the more you may second guess your decision. Having a surrogate agency to intervene and mediate between you and the intended parents ensures that you are not pressured into something that you’re not ready for. We protect our surrogates and give them room to make their own decisions and choose the right time to start the process.
You Get Experienced Professionals Without Stress
There are a range of professionals you can refer to during your surrogacy journey – lawyers, doctors, and psychologists to mention a few. If you pursue an independent surrogacy, you’ll have to spend hours trying to find experienced professionals you can trust. If you choose a surrogate agency, you benefit from the agency’s connections. You’ll get to work with reputable professionals without all the hassles of having to find them and approve them yourself.
