The Biggest Ask forum will be carefully monitored by admin. Users may be asked to re phrase their comments or questions if it comes across as insensitive or harsh. You must be signed in to contribute. Click here to register.

There are two major rules enforced:

  1. Be respectful
    Our aim is to be a place where intended parents and surrogates can get unbiased information about surrogacy in peace. Please refrain from judging others or criticising their choices. Our admin will follow closely and delete any disrespectful comments.
  2. Respect each other's privacy
    Being part of this community requires mutual trust. Authentic and honest discussions will make this forum amazing, but many things said might be private and sensitive.

What's shared here should stay here.

How the Forum works:

  1. Users can earn points:
    • 5 points for starting a conversation that is relevant to surrogacy (limited to one question a day users can ask more questions but they just get 5 points for one)
    • Awarding 5 points for answering a question AND getting a "like". Every additional "like" the person gets earns them 1 additional point.
    • Every week, all users are awarded 5 likes to distribute as they choose. The likes don't roll over so it's just 5 likes a week that they can distribute.
  2. Once a user earns 100 points, we get notified and you'll receive a $100 amazon gift card.
  3. Getting a certain number of points will get you the rank of "experienced surrogate" or "experienced intended parent".

    Art Risk is offering a new insurance plan in case your surrogate has to take bed rest during the pregnancy. Has anyone decided to purchase this plan? Thoughts?

    I reviewed several of the Art Risk plans and also reached out to my personal insurance agent who was able to provide me with much cheaper and more expansive life insurance and short term disability for my surrogate. My experience found that anything labeled with “surrogacy” had a 500% mark up so it was beneficial to spend the time to do the research. I had full intention on purchasing these offerings through art risk if my agent couldn’t find anything so it didn’t hurt to ask.

      @Kelli just called Geico and got a quote for a life insurance plan that would be $26/month and I could cancel at any time. Thanks for the tip! Now just looking at the loss of reproductive organs rider :) Any advice on that?
