How to Know You Picked The Right Surrogacy Agency
You want to have a baby, but maybe you aren’t ready to raise a child. Perhaps you want to help other families realize their dream of raising a child. Regardless, you have decided to be a surrogate, and now you’ve chosen an agency. But is it the right one? At Joy of Life, we want you to make the best decision for your life and pregnancy. Here are a few things to consider.
When considering a surrogate agency, the first thing you need to look for is experience. After all, you are putting your reproductive health into the hands of this agency. You have every right to ensure that you work with a company that has successfully helped other surrogates and families. At Joy of Life, we have helped over 200 surrogates complete the pregnancy journey, creating hundreds of families.
Before you sign with any agency, you need to know who you are dealing with and how they will treat you after signing the contract. At Joy of Life, we offer a completely transparent contract experience. By the time you decide, you will know exactly what to expect. You will learn how much you will be paid and when. You will know what’s reimbursable and how to request those funds. We help you track your monthly compensation and receipts and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
When considering an agency, you need to look at who they see as their client. Of course, the parents are paying for the service. But it is the surrogate that provides that service. The agency must show that the surrogate is at least as much a client as the parents. At Joy of Life, we liaison between surrogates and expectant families. We help them schedule meetings and progress reports in ways that meet the needs of both parties before and after birth.
You are bringing new life into the world. No one should do it alone. It’s vital you choose a surrogate agency that supports you as a woman. The best way to find out how much support an agency gives is to talk to other surrogates. When you listen to their stories, you will clearly understand the agency’s level of support. Many Joy of Life surrogates are happy to share their journeys. Our relationship with our surrogates doesn’t end at birth. We make friendships that last a lifetime.
