What Makes us
What is Gestational Surrogacy?
Gestational Surrogacy is a term used to describe the process of when a woman, referred to as a Surrogate or Carrier, stands in or substitutes for the biological mother. She does this by carrying a pregnancy and delivering a baby for a couple or individual (Intended Parent(s)) who otherwise couldn’t become pregnant.
The Surrogate has no genetic link to the baby because her egg is not used. Instead, the egg and sperm from the Intended Parent(s) or donors are used to create an embryo which is transferred to the Surrogate’s uterus. This is accomplished through a medical procedure called in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and is performed in a fertility doctor's office.
Once the pregnancy is confirmed, the Surrogate provides a healthy and nurturing environment for the baby throughout the pregnancy, then delivers the baby to the Intended Parent(s)' care.
Financial compensation consists of monthly payments made to a surrogate as part of the base compensation for pre-birth child support. Compensation is clearly outlined in the Gestational Carrier Agreement (contract) and is agreed upon by the surrogate and the Intended Parent(s) prior to the embryo transfer.
Every state has laws which specifically allow financial compensation, disallow compensation, or stay silent on the issue. California and Nevada have surrogacy laws written to specifically allow financial compensation to surrogates while other states such as Arizona and Utah stays silent.
The amount of compensation changes from case to case. On average, our surrogates are compensated between $45,000 - $55,000 plus expenses. It works out to around $4,000 per month.
Why the big gap in compensation? There are several reasons for this. An experienced surrogate can receive upwards of $10,000 more than a first time carrier. Surrogates who agree to carry twins are paid more to carry two babies. A surrogate whose pregnancy requires specialized care or a C-section will receive higher financial compensation, etc.
Genesis Rising will work with you and your attorney to create a benefit package. It spells out the flat monthly rate, when the payments start, how long they last, and under what conditions you will receive additional compensation, etc.
Your benefit package is entered into your Gestational Carrier Agreement (contract). You review, agree to, and sign your agreement with your attorney once a match is made with the Intended Parent(s) and before the embryo transfer.
Becoming a surrogate is a great way to supplement your income as well as bring a life into this world to make a family at the same time.

I wanted to become a surrogate after the birth of my daughter. I know many people struggle with infertility and I wanted to help a family experience the joy of being a parent. My first journey was amazing, I carried a little boy for an international couple. They struggled with infertility for many years and were over the moon when he was born. I love getting updates on my belly buddy. I am starting my second journey for close friends of the parents from my first journey. I love Surrogacy and can't believe I get to help build families every day.
