WHY OUR SURROGATES ARE THE BEST
Your surrogate will be carrying, and caring for, your child through the pregnancy. It is essential that we make sure that each and every surrogate working with Delivering Dreams meets the strictest of requirements and receives the highest level of care and support. As with our donors, we want only the best of the best.
Our agency conducts an enormous amount of legwork ahead of time, making the surrogacy experience more successful, saving time and eliminating issues before they arise.
Our surrogates are not only young and healthy, but well educated. Ukraine has the 4th highest rate of education in the world. Most surrogates have university degrees and often advanced degrees.
Before a surrogate profile is even sent to you to consider, they have been carefully vetted. All our potential surrogates must be between 20-36 years of age and have had a successful, healthy, problem-free pregnancy. After meeting those requirements, only about 1 out of every 12 of applicants are accepted into our surrogacy programs.
Every surrogate must pass:
- Extensive interviews
- Medical screening
- Drug screening
- Psychological screening
- Criminal background check
- Home visit – we want them to have a stable, safe and healthy living environment
- Pregnancy and family health history - medical record review by a medical professional
Surrogate Compensation: To ensure we have the very best choice of surrogates for you, we compensate our surrogates well. Surrogates receive money each month for nutritious food and pregnancy clothing and they are paid approximately $15-16,000 after delivery. Although this may seem extremely low compared with the $30-80,000 surrogates in the US can receive, within the context of the Ukrainian economy, this equals many times the average annual salary.
Throughout the pregnancy, your surrogate will receive physiological and financial support. Our surrogates understand the importance of a healthy diet and life style and we monitor them to ensure they follow our guidelines. Surrogates are given a monthly stipend for food and clothing.
You will be able to meet your surrogate before beginning the process if you would like. Another important factor in matching you with a surrogate is the level and frequency of contact you would like. Every couple is different, some enjoy receiving our weekly updates, copies of all tests, information and photos; while others like to keep in touch through email or Skype.
