Fertility Agency Sweetens Incentives to Gestational Surrogates; Finds Interest Up
Date:10/29/2008

CHICAGO, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A Chicago fertility solutions agency believes it has a win/win proposition for women of child-bearing age trying to cope with the effects of a free-falling economy: If you otherwise meet the requirements to serve as a gestational surrogate, are not on public aid, but don't have health insurance, we want to talk to you.

Alternative Reproductive Resources (ARR) matches infertile intended parents with both egg donors and the gestational surrogates who undertake the pregnancy on their behalf. Typically, the fetus is the biological child of one or both of the intended parents who can't bear it themselves.

The demand for gestational surrogates generally outpaces the supply. Still, a recent advertisement about its offer in the economically hard-hit city of Rockford, IL netted ARR more than 20 inquiries over two days. As with egg donors, the firm tends to see more inquiries during times of economic distress.

"Being a gestational surrogate requires a very special type of person," said Robin von Halle, president of ARR. "Many of our surrogates, for example, are in the health care field, which is all about caring for others. Others are stay-at-home mothers who have their families, but loved being pregnant. Getting paid to help others create their families is a great bonus."

She noted that several variables dictate the surrogate's compensation, but average fees range nationally from $20,000 to $27,000. Among other requirements: Women must be between 21 and 38, have given birth to at least one child and have a non-complicated obstetrical history.

"Typically, agencies like ours require the surrogate to have health insurance to cover related costs," said von Halle. "In the current economic environment, we know many otherwise great candidates have lost their health insurance. We will help them get coverage if they otherwise qualify."
