    I want to share my surrogacy journey experience with Genesis, I feel like anyone interested in being a surrogate deserves to have the amazing experience that I did.

    When I first started my surrogacy journey, I didn’t know where to look or what to ask. I had a friend recommend a surrogacy agency to me. This was the one I ultimately decided to go with, and I’m so glad I did. However, I did do my own reading on surrogacy and wanted to make sure I was choosing the right agency! I called different agencies, and soon learned what I should be asking and what I needed to know to make sure the agency was right for me. The agency I chose has many great reviews, all my continuous questions were handled with complete transparency. I also think it is really awesome that the president of the agency is the co-founder and board member of The SEEDS Organization. From the beginning, I had a clear vision of each step that the surrogacy process entailed and I had immense support throughout my whole journey. Whenever I did feel like I was drowning with all the new information I was taking in as a first time surrogate, my case manager kept me afloat.

    I had my embryo transfer in the beginning of January 2020. I carried twins through the year of Covid, and though I delivered them a little early, everything was seamlessly arranged and handled with care & support. From having the support of my amazing case manager (and a whole team of dedicated intake coordinators, case managers, and agency owners, to my assigned case manager being there at my medical screening, at my embryo transfer, and when I neared delivery time – there she was waiting for my call to tell her that I was going into labor and continued to show care for me after I delivered. The twins did need NICU time since I delivered a bit early. I would go visit them, have skin to skin contact, and drop off my pumped milk to the nurses. The parent of the babies stayed in an Airbnb for an extended time close by, and my family would go visit with them and I would drop breastmilk off to them. Now, the twins are healthy, happy, and beautiful 3 year olds (almost 4) and I am thankful I receive updates to this day. The family even plans on visiting me later this year. I’ll forever be incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to be their surrogate. They will always have a special place in my heart.

    Like I said, I was a first time surrogate, and I feel incredibly blessed to have had the experience I did. I highly recommend if you are interested in surrogacy, do your due diligence and research different agencies to make sure you’re choosing the right one. Find what’s important to you. Some may advertise for very high compensation but most GC’s aren’t in this for the compensation alone. Surrogacy is beautiful when done right, compensation isn’t top priority when it comes to something so extraordinary as carrying someone else’s baby for them. Some agencies advertise super high compensation – not only is this unethical but it leave future GC’s with unrealistic expectations. There is more that goes into being a surrogate, and I’m really glad I had the best of the best by my side through my journey.
