Finding A Surrogate In Kansas City: What Are My Options?Posted by Pathways to Parenthood | July 31, 2014
If you are considering using a gestational surrogate to build and grow your family, you are likely trying to decide where to start. The first place most people start is considering if they have a family member or close friend that would be a good candidate. If that is an option for you, and the candidate is healthy physically and mentally, then that is most likely going to be the best option from a financial standpoint. Most people that utilize a family member or close friend do not pay any compensation and therefore save $20,000-$40,000.
If a family member or close friend is not an option for you, then you are left with trying to find someone on your own, or working with an agency. There are not many benefits of finding your own surrogate rather than working with an agency. Although you will save money (maybe) by not working with any agency since you will not pay an agency fee, many people that do try to find a surrogate on their own spend thousands of dollars on candidates that ultimately do now work out to be a viable candidate. In addition the emotional burden of the process can be very difficult to manage.
