While the month of May celebrates motherhood, it’s also a time where awareness and compassion should emerge for the many women diagnosed with infertility. For those unable to have children, a holiday like Mother’s Day can trigger tears. The commercials and advertisements leading up to Mother’s Day build up a vast amount of sadness.
It’s important to remind others to never lose hope. While being a compassionate listener is needed at this time, other women may decide to become a surrogate and help a woman in need.
By honoring the kindhearted surrogates who want to help other women attain motherhood, Extraordinary Conceptions, a well-respected California surrogacy and egg donor agency based in San Diego, made the unanimous executive decision to extend their new surrogate signing bonuses one more month.
During the month of May, the new surrogate signing bonus is a $1,500 Visa Gift Card. The agency also reminds everyone how it recently raised its compensation package another $5,000 in 31 states across the nation. Qualified surrogates can now receive a complete benefits package starting at $45,000 (and up) from now until May 31, 2017.
“The month of May is a powerful time when women can make an extraordinary difference in the lives of others who are struggling with their infertility. Women who step forward to become surrogates this month can make motherhood dreams come true so that another woman does not have to endure what it’s like not to experience the love of a child,” said Mario Caballero, chief executive officer at Extraordinary Conceptions. “Surrogates are offering so much of themselves, and their act of kindness is one of the most incredible ways to support a woman suffering from fertility issues.”
Last month exciting news from Washington DC lit the headlines. In the District of Columbia, surrogacy is deemed legal, enabling intending parents and potential surrogates to accept this reproductive assistance practice with more family building choices.
The thirty-one states where base compensation surged an additional $5,000 are the following:
- South Dakota
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- North Carolina
- New Hampshire
- Rhode Island
- Washington DC
“First-time surrogates in the above states mentioned who apply to be a surrogate between now and May 31, 2017, can qualify to receive a $40,000 base compensation. This is $5,000 more than the average base compensation,” Caballero said. “If you calculate this base compensation with complete benefits, surrogates are eligible for packages which can now total $45,000 to start and increase from there. Repeat surrogates may be entitled to receive a higher compensation depending on their experience.”
The magnitude of what surrogates do to help mothers and fathers achieve parenthood is immense. As an agency, it is an ongoing privilege to know these special surrogates who are changing one life at a time.
