Reimbursement for a Surrogate Mother

As per the AHRA, gestational surrogates in Canada cannot be compensated for a surrogacy, however they may be reimbursed for some expenses during her surrogate pregnancy.

Pregnancy-related expenses can be costs such as maternity clothes, travel for medical appointments, or lost wages due to bed rest.

As a Canadian citizen, all obstetrical and delivery costs will be covered by the surrogate mother’s health insurance (your health card). Any health related costs for the baby born will be covered by the Intending parents.

Your team of coordinators at Extraordinary Conceptions will ensure you are supported through the process of requesting reimbursements and that you fully understand what you are entitled to be reimbursed.
