If you are considering attempting a surrogacy arrangement independently, there are many issues to consider. Often times, when trying to cut financial corners and when desperation and vulnerability are a part of the picture, some may find themselves in a courtroom fighting for their baby just because one (or more) of these top 10 mistakes were made! I will explain each one in upcoming posts however I would love to hear from you especially if you have something to add!
 
Top 10 Don'ts When Planning a Surrogacy Arrangement
 
10) Don't work with a woman under the age of 21
 
9) Don't work with a woman who has never given birth to a child of her own
 
8) Don't use a contract downloaded from the Internet with no legal guidance
 
7) Don't use the sperm from an ex boyfriend
 
6) Don't work with a Surrogate who lives in a state that makes "commercial surrogacy contracts" unenforceable
 
5) Don't 'do' in home inseminations
 
4) Don't have the compensation payments to your surrogate come directly from you-use an escrow agent
 
3) Don't forget to pay all the bills regarding the surrogacy and pregnancy in a timely manner
 
2) Don't have your surrogate stay with you for more then a week if at all possible
 
1) Don't forget the Psychological Evaluation
 
I would love to hear what you have to add or your own surrogacy story!
