Illinois Surrogate Mothers

Becoming a mother is a wonderful experience indeed but some simply crave for the same till their last breath. Even, for gay couples who want to complete their family by having a child of their own, feels parenthood as bliss. If you desire to change the lives of such people, you are most welcome as nothing is nobler than bringing a child on this Earth.

In the state of Illinois, couples from all over the world come to fulfill their wish of a child as there are many reputed surrogacy agencies Illinois that facilitate the procedure. Alternative Reproductive Resources is one such Illinois surrogacy agency that encourages women to come forward and become Illinois surrogate mother willingly.

Generosity is a pre-requisite

Yes, it is true that for becoming a surrogate mother in Illinois, it is essential to have this quality as she can't claim any parentage rights on the child after delivery. It requires a lot of selfless love to go through the entire process happily and demands a certain level of maturity.

It is for this reason, we as a reputed gestational surrogacy Illinois agency put a lot of emphasis in understanding that the decision of becoming a surrogate mother is not taken under any pressure or in haste as it will directly have an everlasting effect on a childless couple craving to hold their bundle of joy in their lap with your help.

Must be mother of a child

We encourage women who willingly come forward to become Illinois surrogate mothers, but allow women only who have at least one child of their own and have an uncomplicated obstetrical history. This to ensure that after carrying the baby for a due time period, the surrogate mother does not feel it difficult to part her way from the baby which is to be done as per the Illinois surrogacy laws. If she is already a mother, there is always an increased possibility that she does the act willingly and could better understand the pain of childless couples.

Mandatory psychological screening

Age is also a factor as women between the age group of 21 to 38 years are only eligible to undergo a gestational surrogacy. Not only had this, at ARR, all intended women who want to become surrogate mothers are rigorously screened by a competent Obstetrician-Gynocologist so that the pregnancy can be initiated.

It is also mandatory of each intended surrogate mother and her significant other to undergo a complete psychological screening also by our team of physicians.

Apart from the above conditions, surrogate mothers also have medical coverage. We at ARR offer best compensation to intended surrogate mothers in Illinois and it is always anywhere in the range of $30,000 to $38,000.

In case of multiple pregnancies, the compensation also shoots up as in case of a cesarean section or any other unavoidable situation. If you are interested in becoming the one to bring smile on the face of a childless couple with your selfless act and you really enjoy pregnancy, please create a free account at https://www.arr1.com/application/online_form_login.php to fill our online questionnaire.

A Surrogate's Story:

I started working with Alternative Reproductive Resources in 2005. The process to become a surrogate was more complicated than I had expected and I'm not going to lie, at first it was stressful. Luckily, ARR held my hand through the entire process. You see, I was a surrogate twice. The first time, the embryo transfer didn't take, which was not only hard for me, but for the couple I was trying to help. Due to health issues, the couple had to focus on other needs. Nevertheless, that experience made me stronger and more motivated to help another couple. ARR introduced me to another couple. This experience was very different - not only was I working with new parents, but a different team of doctors. In May 2007, the embryos were transferred and took. I was pregnant with twins. The feeling was overwhelming. Throughout the pregnancy, the intended parents, ARR and my family were very supportive and I was able to give the couple two very precious gifts.
