    Hi! Yay on considering being a surrogate for your friends!

    I am a independent surrogate on my first journey- although I did not know my intended parents prior. I have surrogacy friendly insurance (the first thing I would do is review your insurance booklet and look for any exclusions, then the intended parents can pay artrisk to run a review).

    The clinic is a huge help but mostly just doing tons of research, (medications required, what would you do if you needed long term bedrest, side effects, are you done with your family, ect.)

    Compensation wise there are a ton of spreadsheets out there if you search various agencies that should give you some ideas. But being you are carrying for your friends don’t feel pressured to ask for x amount, you need to come up with the “worth it” amount to you – that varies for everyone!

    Happy researching and planning – you already are in a great place!
