Diana and Andreas

Our Story

Namaste everyone! My husband and I are based in Seattle and have been trying for a baby for the past several years. I’ve had 4 back-to-back miscarriages in the past 2 years, all from natural pregnancies. After 6 IVFs and 2 IUIs, we were finally able to get two PGS normal embryos! They are a miracles to us – our love and light. I am 44 years old and was told it would never happen due to my age but here we are! Unfortunately, I have endometriosis/adenomyosis as well as some autoimmune issues that have caused my miscarriages. Now that we finally got to this point, we do not want to take a chance with our precious embryos and are looking for a gestational surrogate, preferably in Canada or the US. Kindness, openness, and honesty are super important to us. We are looking to find someone who wants us to be part of the journey (in a non-up-your-bum kind of way of course, lol). We cannot wait to meet our precious rainbow baby. If you are a GC and our story resonates with you, please reach out. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration.

The Biggest Ask Says

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine provides the following recommendations for evaluation of gestational carriers (i.e., many fertility clinics will require the following for their gestational carriers) :

  • Carried at least 1 child without complications
  • Fewer than 3 deliveries via c-section 
  • Body mass index in between 19 and 32
  • No smoking, abusing drugs, alcohol or prescription medications

No one likes to talk about surrogate compensation, but it is an important factor in any surrogacy agreement. The following is how we classify high, medium and low compensation (excluding the value of any benefits). Many factors affect surrogate compensation including surrogate experience (e.g., has the woman been a surrogate before?), whether the surrogate is signed up with an agency and surrogate preferences.

  • Low = surrogate compensation less than $20,000
  • Medium = surrogate compensation between $20,000 and $40,000
  • High = surrogate compensation greater than $40,000
