There are so many wonderful benefits when it comes to gestational surrogacy. We know how much of an exciting time this is, but we also know how overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed you might be feeling as well, especially if this is your first time. Not to fear! That’s why Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado created a list of some benefits you and the intended parents you are matched with may experience during the surrogacy process. We hope to remind you of how much of a hero you are and to remind you what you’re doing this all for.
Benefits of Doing Surrogacy in Colorado
Surrogacy is Legal
As we mentioned before, surrogacy is legal in Colorado! This means that the courts know what gestational surrogacy is and make sure everyone is protected by granting pre-birth parentage orders to the intended parents before the baby is even born. This means you all avoid a lengthy and complicated legal process and make sure everyone is on the same page in terms of roles and responsibilities.
Surrogate Mothers Are Protected
Again, we realize how much of a commitment it is to become a surrogate mother. We also know how much you may be sacrificing, such as your personal time, work, and other parts of your life. At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, we make sure to protect you at every level. That’s why the Colorado surrogacy agreement is important because it makes sure you are well taken care of. This ensures you have no parental rights or responsibilities to the baby you carry, so you don’t have to worry about what happens after the pregnancy.
Single Parents, Same-Sex, and LGBTQ+ Parents Are Protected
In both Colorado courts and at Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, single intended parents and same-sex intended parents benefit as well. We are here to make sure families grow, no matter their sexual orientation, sex, gender, or marital status. Colorado as well allows for any couple to be listed as legal parents, so long as at least one provides genetic material for the IVF process.
Since gestational surrogacy is legal in Colorado, that means you get the fair and adequate compensation you deserve. When choosing a surrogacy agency, we make sure to be upfront with you about the money you are owed. We don’t hide or try to be vague about how much you will get. We always make sure you know the truth about your compensation.
Depending on what you hope to get out of becoming a surrogate mother, chances are you will form a close bond with the intended parents you are matched with (if you want). At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, we make sure to match you based on compatibility factors like interviews and screenings. Throughout the process, you will be closely connected to the intended parents through the wellbeing of the child you carry.
This means one or both of them might come with you to appointments related to the surrogacy process. All of you are going through a life-changing journey and can form meaningful bonds that can last even after delivering the baby.
