Curious about what gestational surrogacy is and how it works? Let's break it down!⁠
⁠
First things first: Surrogates aren't giving up their own babies.⁠
⁠
Here's how it works: Intended Parents create embryos in a lab, which are then transferred into the uterus of the Gestational Surrogate. Nine months later, the baby is born and handed back to its parents!⁠
⁠
The Surrogate isn't genetically related to the child and simply acts as a carrier, giving the baby back to its rightful parents. That's the essence of gestational surrogacy!⁠

Matching with a Surrogate isn't like swiping left or right on Tinder. It's a thoughtful process that demands time and attention. At Golden, we understand the importance of taking it slow and getting it right.⁠
⁠
One of the top questions we often get is, "How long does it take to be matched?" It's a question that's been on our minds too!⁠
⁠
Let's break it down.⁠
⁠
Timing can vary greatly, from as little as 4 weeks to as long as a year.⁠
⁠
Why? Well, it depends on several factors: the number of Surrogates available, your preferences, and theirs too. And here's a little tip: there are usually more Intended Parents searching for Surrogates than there are Surrogates available.⁠
⁠⁠
But don't worry! Because unlike the world of Tinder, your surrogacy journey allows you to work with a dedicated team of experts (like us here at Golden) who will navigate the process with you every step of the way.⁠

If you're an Intended Parent looking for a fertility clinic to partner with, here are a couple of key factors to consider:⁠
⁠
💬 COMMUNICATION: Look for responsiveness. Do they prioritize prompt replies to emails and phone calls?⁠
⁠
💡 TRANSPARENCY: Ensure transparency in both process and pricing. Understanding what the clinic offers and its associated costs is crucial.⁠
⁠
These two "P's" are vital for your peace of mind and clarity in your fertility journey.⁠
⁠
But there's a third crucial aspect:⁠
⁠
🤝 COLLABORATION: It's essential that the fertility clinic works seamlessly with your surrogacy agency. After all, we're all part of the same team, dedicated to helping you realize your dream of starting a family.⁠
⁠
Remember, here at Golden, we're here to partner with you every step of the way towards building the family you've always wanted🧡⁠

"I'm interested in becoming a Surrogate but I am worried about the risks."⁠
⁠
Trust us, we get it. If you are considering becoming a Gestational Surrogate, it's essential to understand that a surrogacy pregnancy, like any other, comes with its own unique set of risks. ⁠
⁠
That's why choosing the right agency with a comprehensive pre-screening process is crucial. At Golden, we prioritize your health and safety throughout your surrogacy journey, starting with thorough prescreening.⁠
⁠
Our goal is to ensure the HEALTHIEST and SAFEST outcome possible for you and the Intended Parents. We encourage you to explore our website (🔗 in bio) to familiarize yourself with our requirements. Your health and well-being are paramount to us, and we want to empower you to embark on this journey with confidence.⁠
⁠
While the desire to help build a family is admirable, we emphasize that your health and best interests must always come first. Rest assured, our team is excited to support you every step of the way, prioritizing your well-being above all else. Your journey with Golden is about more than just building a family, it's about ensuring a positive and fulfilling experience for everyone involved🧡⁠

After the baby arrives there are a few things they don't always prepare you for. But you know what? None of that really matters because the most important thing is: Congratulations!⁠
⁠
You've just completed an incredible surrogacy journey and that is no small feat. Whether you're a traditional couple, a single Intended Parent, or part of a same-sex couple, you've gone through a journey that's both emotionally and physically demanding.⁠
⁠
But here's the beautiful part...you made it! You're officially a parent now🎉👶🏠🌈⁠
⁠
It's time to head home, settle into your new role, and take all the time you need to adjust. Most importantly, remember to do parenting your way. I talk about this more on Surrogacy Talk so I highly encourage you to check out the link in the bio for more insights and advice.⁠

Let's talk birth control.⁠
⁠
You've been asking us an important question: "Is it normal for the agency to request the removal of my IUD or other implanted birth control before being matched?" The answer is a resounding yes!⁠
⁠
Here's why...⁠
⁠
The reproductive endocrinologist at your Intended Parent’s clinic typically requires the removal of birth control to ensure you have a full menstrual cycle before granting full medical clearance. In some cases, they may even prefer two cycles, which can take 2 to 4 months.⁠
⁠
To prevent any delays in your surrogacy journey, we highly recommend removing your IUD or any other form of implanted birth control before your match.⁠
⁠
But that's not all! There are other important considerations as you prepare for your surrogacy journey, such as avoiding new tattoos or piercings.⁠
⁠
For a comprehensive list of requirements and to ensure you're fully prepared, head over to our website. We're here to support you every step of the way🤝⁠

Ever bought something without checking the price tag first? Yeah, not the smartest move. Turns out that the same rule applies to surrogacy journeys! Before you dive headfirst into this life-changing experience, let's talk cash.⁠
⁠
So, what's the deal? Typically you're looking at your journey being an investment of around $150,000. Yep, you heard that right. That covers all the basics: agency fees, compensation for your amazing Surrogate, legal, clinical, insurance... you name it. And let's not forget those extra escrow costs for any unexpected hurdles along the way.⁠
⁠
Now, $150,000 might sound like a lot (because it is) but trust me, there's more to it than meets the eye. That's why I'm here to guide you through every step of the process.⁠
⁠
Book a consultation with us at Golden and we'll break it all down for you!⁠

TRIGGER WARNING: "all-in compensation"⁠
⁠
You might be confused as to why "all-in compensation" needs a trigger warning. But here at Golden, we understand that all-in compensation can be TERRIFYING!⁠
⁠
What I mean by that is you might not know this, but some of the numbers being advertised by surrogacy agencies out there are purposely deceiving.⁠
⁠
Let me break it down for you.⁠
⁠
If your compensation package includes the phrase "up to," you're not guaranteed that full amount.⁠
⁠
As a Surrogate signing up for an "all-in" compensation plan, you may unexpectedly find yourself covering expenses like legal fees or lost wages.⁠
⁠
In fact, that the high-dollar compensation amount advertised actually includes expenses that, at most other agencies, are considered “in addition to.”⁠
⁠
As a Surrogate, you deserve transparency when it comes to your compensation.⁠
⁠
Visit us at goldensurrogacy.com (🔗 in bio) and schedule a consultation with our Surrogate intake specialists today to learn about what Golden has to offer and what you should look out for when considering a surrogacy agency.⁠

I have 40,000 reasons why you should book a consultation with us at Golden!⁠
⁠
Let me start by saying $40,000 of additional expenses may be the most important reason.⁠
⁠
And what I mean by that is other agencies oftentimes forget to go through key line items when presenting an estimate to you.⁠
⁠
Things like clinical expenses, your Surrogate's insurance, as well as newborn insurance. These are very important items for you to understand which help you formulate your entire journey budget.⁠
⁠
Book a consultation with us here at Golden so we can go line item by line item!⁠
⁠
Also, be sure to check out Surrogacy Talk. There's a link in the bio where I dive into this topic in great detail.⁠

"I'll take the blue one with leather interior and the ultra-premium sound system!"⁠
⁠
NO!⁠
⁠
Say it with me: your Surrogate is not a car.⁠
⁠
You are not walking onto a car lot and picking a Surrogate like you would a car.⁠
⁠
It is important to understand that matching works both ways. It is not only about what you want as an Intended Parent. Your Surrogate will also join the agency with her own matching preferences and criteria.⁠
⁠
So while surrogacy may be a two-way street, there are no cars.⁠
⁠

If you are trying to determine the weather or traffic patterns, crowdsourcing is great.⁠
⁠
But not when it comes to your surrogacy journey.⁠
⁠
Have you ever told someone, "don't believe everything you read on the internet"?⁠
⁠
Intended Parents and Surrogates, the same advice can be applied to your surrogacy journey.⁠
⁠
Yes, I'm talking social media.⁠
⁠
I know what you are thinking. "But Frank, the group admin on my surrogacy community page is experienced and knows what they are talking about."⁠
⁠
🤔🤔🤔⁠
⁠
Friends, the only place that you can get professional advice regarding a surrogacy journey is with a surrogacy professional (I.E. an agency).⁠
⁠
Talking to others who have gone through what you are going through is great but keep in mind that what worked for them may not be what works for you.⁠
⁠
If you want credible information you need to talk to a credible source. Plain and simple.⁠
⁠
Here at Golden, we offer complimentary consultations where we provide the most accurate and up-to-date information.⁠
⁠
So the next time you find yourself with questions regarding surrogacy, skip Facebook and reach out to us instead!⁠

"What is the role of a surrogacy agency during the legal phase of a journey?"⁠
⁠
While I can't speak for other agencies, let me tell you what we do here at Golden.⁠
⁠
We are committed to being as hands-on as possible during every step of your surrogacy journey.⁠
⁠
During the legal stage, we review the legal draft alongside the Intended Parents and Surrogates to ensure the language being agreed upon encompasses all of the industry standards as well as items that were agreed on in your match sheet. ⁠
⁠
Founded by former Intended Parents, we understand how crucial it is to have the best possible team advocating on your behalf during this time.⁠
⁠
While the legal phase can be overwhelming for Intended Parents and Surrogates, rest assured that if you are partnered with Golden, you will be provided world-class journey support and case management on every step of your journey (especially legal)!⁠

Let me tell you how we ensure that 98% of our Surrogates have uncomplicated vaginal deliveries.⁠
⁠
Our ✨ENHANCED SURROGATE CRITERIA✨⁠
⁠
I'll break it down for you...⁠
⁠
We cap the previous number of c-sections at ONE. This means that the majority of our Surrogate applicants have only had vaginal deliveries.⁠
⁠
Through our 10 years of experience we have found that the likelihood of a vaginal delivery is higher if the Surrogate has previously delivered vaginally.⁠
⁠
Combine that with the other stringent criteria built into our Enhanced Surrogate Criteria and what you have is ✨98% uncomplicated vaginal deliveries✨⁠
⁠
This is just one of the many reasons why Golden is the right agency for you!⁠
⁠

We get so many questions asking if we do egg donation here at Golden.⁠
⁠
So to answer that question: no, we don't do egg donation. And that's a GOOD thing!⁠
⁠
Let me tell you why…⁠
⁠
We feel Intended Parents should not be limited to what the data base is at one agency.⁠
⁠
After all, this is who you will be combining half your DNA with!⁠
⁠
We recommend you look at your clinic's in-house egg donation program (if they have one). Those candidates are often times pre-screened and approved by your physician.⁠
⁠
OR go to a specialty agency. This way you have unlimited options and you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for.⁠
⁠
You deserve nothing less than the best when you are creating the child and family that you envision.⁠
⁠
What are your thoughts on egg donation?⁠
⁠

There is nothing more stressful as an Intended Parent than trying to determine the logistics of coming home with your newborn.⁠
⁠
Trust me, I get it.⁠
⁠
That is why here at Golden, we try to curate a REGIONAL MATCH. This way Intended Parents have the opportunity to at least drive home and not board an airplane.⁠
⁠
If you are an Intended Parent living in California, you would not want to be matched with a Surrogate living in New York considering that is where she will give birth to your baby.⁠
⁠
Regional matching is just one example of the ways we look out for your best interest.⁠
⁠
I was once in your shoes and I understand your journey better than anyone else.⁠

This isn't your parent's 🐦s and the 🐝s talk…⁠

Here is how a Surrogate becomes pregnant in emojis:⁠

1. 💊👍👩⁠
2. 🩸✏️👨‍⚕️⁠
3. 🧪➡️👩⁠

TRUST, COMMUNICATION, and UNDERSTANDING.⁠
⁠
If you want a business transaction type of surrogacy journey, we are not the agency for you.⁠
⁠
Let me explain...⁠
⁠
Here at Golden, we believe that there are 3 essential pillars to having a great relationship between Surrogates and Intended Parents on a surrogacy journey. They are...⁠
⁠
1. Trust⁠
2. Communication⁠
3. Understanding⁠
⁠
As a former Intended Parent myself, I can testify that surrogacy journeys are served best when they are built on these three pillars. ⁠
⁠
If you are looking for a fulfilling surrogacy journey and not just a business transaction, reach out to us today! ⁠

"As a Surrogate, you can earn UP TO..."⁠
⁠
If you hear a surrogacy agency say this... RUN!⁠
⁠
Some surrogacy agencies use vague terms like 'up to $85,000' when discussing Surrogate compensation.⁠
⁠
But at Golden, we believe in honesty and clarity. We state the minimum amount you'll receive upfront, taking away any uncertainty.⁠
⁠
Visit our website (🔗 in bio) to discover the actual number. With us, your compensation is never a vague promise; it's a real and meaningful figure. Join our family where transparency and fair treatment are at the heart of everything we do!⁠

There might be somethings that your Intended Parents are not telling you... Let's talk about it.⁠
⁠
As a former Intended Parent myself, I can tell you that they have their fair share of worries and concerns. The one thing they rely on is YOU—their Surrogate—to provide them with essential pregnancy updates.⁠
⁠
To maintain a cohesive and harmonious relationship throughout the entire pregnancy, communication is key—communication, communication, communication! Stay connected through text messages or phone calls, establishing a rhythm that works for everyone involved. This open flow of information will make your surrogacy journey more successful and enjoyable for all.⁠
⁠
Remember, building trust and nurturing a strong bond is vital.⁠

So you're thinking about expanding your family through a sibling journey! CONGRATS! But do you pursue this second journey with the same Surrogate from your first journey? If you are considering using the same Surrogate, here are three important factors to consider before making your decision...⁠
⁠
1️⃣ Reflect on your previous surrogacy journey with that Surrogate. Did you have excellent communication, a solid relationship, and were expectations met? It's crucial to think about your compatibility.⁠
⁠
2️⃣ Consider your Surrogate's health and well-being. Was her previous pregnancy and delivery full-term and successful? Is she in good health and able to embark on another pregnancy in the healthiest and safest manner?⁠
⁠
3️⃣ Keep the timeline in mind. At Golden, we prioritize a full 12-month rest and recovery period for Surrogates before a subsequent embryo transfer. Planning ahead and allowing ample time for rest is crucial.⁠
⁠
When you're ready to embark on your sibling journey, we're here to support and guide you every step of the way!⁠

I have a secret for you!⁠
⁠
There are countless women out there who simply adore the experience of pregnancy and that is what motivates them to become Surrogates.⁠
⁠
They love every moment, from the first kick to the glow of pregnancy. However, life has other plans, and they have decided that their family is complete.⁠
⁠
That's right, one of the prerequisites for becoming a Surrogate is that these remarkable women are finished building their own family.⁠
⁠
So, if you ever wondering about the driving force behind why a woman decides to become a Gestational Surrogate, now you have the answer. It's a bit of love for pregnancy and the selflessness to help others achieve their dreams of parenthood.⁠

"Who is related to the baby?"⁠
⁠
Have you ever heard someone ask this question? Or maybe you are a Gestational Surrogate and someone has asked you this question.⁠
⁠
Many wonder about the biological connection between a Gestational Surrogate and the babies they carry. And here's the truth. Are you ready for it?⁠
⁠
THERE ISN'T ONE.⁠
⁠
Yes, you read that right. The baby being carried by the Surrogate is composed of genetic material created outside the womb through an embryo. This embryo is then transferred into the Surrogate. At the end of the pregnancy, the Surrogate joyfully hands that precious bundle to its rightful parents. ⁠
⁠
Surrogates are not giving up their own children or babies they are related to. That's a HUGE myth out there, and it's time to put it to rest once and for all.⁠
⁠
Golden Surrogates--how would you respond if someone asked you this question? Let us know in the comments!⁠

ATTENTION SURROGATES: Empower yourself with Golden!⁠
⁠
Surrogates, it's important to prioritize your well-being and secure the best benefits for your journey. If you're not already with Golden, here's a crucial tip: ask your surrogacy agency about "all-inclusive compensation packages" and what that truly entails.⁠
⁠
An all-inclusive package means that your base compensation and incidentals are bundled together into one comprehensive number which is intended to cover various scenarios. However, here at Golden, we understand that surrogacy journeys can be unpredictable. That's why we go the extra mile to offer you a fantastic compensation package PLUS incidentals that are eligible for reimbursement.⁠
⁠
We believe in accounting for every possibility and looking out for your best interests. With Golden, you can rest assured that we've got your back every step of the way. Join our community and experience surrogacy with unwavering support and exceptional benefits!⁠
⁠
GO GOLDEN!🧡⁠

Avoid this common mistake, Intended Parents!⁠
⁠
Embarking on a surrogacy journey without a budget can lead to financial hurdles. Don't make this crucial error.⁠
⁠
Before diving in, ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of all potential costs involved. If you're not enrolled in an all-in-surrogacy package, it's essential to consider 'what if' scenarios. Take a close look at the cost breakdown and your contract to grasp fees in repeat occurrences—Surrogate's compensation, multiple embryo transfers, and more.⁠
⁠
There's so much to consider, but I'm here to guide you. Fill out our consultation form, and let's start your surrogacy journey on the right track! ⁠

Dear Reproductive Endocrinologists and fertility centers, stop doing this.⁠
⁠
Here's the advice: Please avoid issuing treatment protocols or med cycle calendars to the Surrogate and Intended Parents until after the legal process is completed and you've received the legal letter of clearance.⁠
⁠
By delaying these documents, we can prevent setting false expectations. ⁠
⁠
We want everyone involved, both Intended Parents and Surrogates, to feel excitement without rushing through the crucial legal process. Clear expectations are key!⁠
⁠
At Golden, we prioritize setting the right foundation for your surrogacy journey, ensuring everyone understands the process and begins with the right mindset.⁠
⁠
Let's work together to create a smooth and successful surrogacy journey from the very beginning!⁠

Speaking with your children about their origin story or the surrogacy journey that brought them into your arms is a crucial conversation.⁠
⁠
As a former Intended Parent, I understand the importance of this topic. For Adam and me, we embraced early and open communication as the foundation of our approach. We wanted complete transparency when discussing the surrogacy journey and how our children came to be a part of our lives.⁠
⁠
However, your approach may differ, and that's perfectly okay. There's no right or wrong way to handle it. What matters is doing what feels best for you and your family.⁠
⁠
If you'd like guidance or a friendly conversation about this, give me a call. We can explore various approaches and discuss your unique situation. Even if you're not a client of Golden, I'm here to help. I can provide information or direct you to experienced mental health professionals. Together, we'll find the resources that align with your needs.⁠
⁠
Let's nurture open dialogue, understanding, and love as we shape our children's beautiful origin stories.⁠

Yes, you heard it right! At Golden Surrogacy, you have the option to bring your own Surrogate.⁠
⁠

Surrogates, we want you to prioritize your health and well-being above all else.⁠
⁠
While there are rare circumstances where doctors may recommend a double embryo transfer due to low embryo quality, in most cases, it comes down to Intended Parents wanting to save money by having twins.⁠
⁠
However, it's crucial to remember that your health and well-being are what is most important. Carrying twins significantly increases the chances of complications, such as C-sections, bed rest, and potential risks to the well-being of both you and your IP's babies.⁠
⁠
At Golden, we always prioritize your best interests. We're here to support you throughout your surrogacy journey.⁠

Introducing the Golden Surrogacy Compensation Package! Let's dive into the details.⁠
⁠
Firstly, it's essential to understand that becoming a Surrogate is driven by more than just financial motives. However, we acknowledge the significance of the financial component.⁠
⁠
At Golden, our Surrogates start with a generous base compensation of $50,000. But that's not all! We offer something unique: our Standard Golden Benefits of $20,000.⁠
⁠
This means that all of our Surrogates earn a minimum of $70,000, in addition to usual incidentals like lost wages. For a comprehensive list of potential expenses, please visit our website (🔗 in bio).⁠
⁠
If you're interested, we encourage you to check out our website! Our dedicated intake specialists are ready to answer all of your questions and guide you through the process. ⁠

Intended Parents, let's talk about the idea of having twins through a double embryo transfer🤔👶👶⁠
⁠
No, that's not the approach we recommend. While it may seem like a cost-saving strategy, there are important financial considerations to keep in mind.⁠
⁠
Surrogates often incur additional expenses such as C-section fees, bedrest, lost wages, and a hefty multiples fee. Additionally, there's an increased risk of health complications for both the Surrogate and the unborn children.⁠
⁠
We strongly advise partnering with a reputable medical provider to fully understand these risks and assess your willingness to take them. Additionally, working with a trusted surrogacy agency like Golden is crucial. We provide sage advice and support to ensure a healthy and safe surrogacy journey.⁠
⁠
Remember, informed decisions lead to the best outcomes.⁠

Intended Parents, it's time to get a little closer and understand the unspoken truth. Your amazing Surrogate is treating this pregnancy with utmost care, even more than her own.⁠
⁠
Through countless conversations with Surrogates, they express their deep desire to do a fantastic job for their Intended Parents. Their main concern? Your baby's health and ensuring your dreams of starting a family come true.⁠
⁠
It's important to know that the financial aspect is not their primary focus. What weighs on their hearts is witnessing you holding your little one, completing your family.⁠
⁠
Your Surrogate consistently demonstrates genuine care and compassion for you, the pregnancy, and your journey to parenthood. In the same spirit, remember to go the extra mile and show your sincere appreciation for her. ⁠
⁠
Golden Surrogates--what else did you wish your IPs knew during your journey?⁠

One of the questions we often hear is whether you should use the same egg donor for your sibling journey. Let's dive into it!⁠
⁠
For Adam and I, having both of our children genetically related through the same donor was incredibly important. But remember, it ultimately comes down to personal preference.⁠
⁠
At Golden, we highly recommend having a minimum of three PGT (genetically normal) embryos per match when starting your surrogacy journey. This is crucial. If you're considering a sibling journey in the future, having at least six PGT embryos genetically related to each other or from the same egg donor would be ideal. However, it all depends on what matters most to you.⁠
⁠
If you have any questions or want to bounce ideas off us, feel free to reach out. We're here to help and share our expertise.⁠
⁠
Your surrogacy journey is unique, and we're here to support you every step of the way!⁠

Have you ever wondered what your Intended Parents might not be sharing with you? Let's talk about it.⁠
⁠
As a former Intended Parent myself, I can tell you that they have their fair share of worries and concerns. The one thing they rely on is YOU—their Surrogate—to provide them with essential pregnancy updates.⁠
⁠
To maintain a cohesive and harmonious relationship throughout the entire pregnancy, communication is key—communication, communication, communication! Stay connected through text messages or phone calls, establishing a rhythm that works for everyone involved. This open flow of information will make your surrogacy journey more successful and enjoyable for all.⁠
⁠
Remember, building trust and nurturing a strong bond is vital.⁠

When should you throw in the towel and end your surrogacy journey? The answer is simple: NEVER.⁠
⁠
To those who have endured numerous IVF cycles, multiple embryo transfers, and have yet to achieve success, know that you are not alone. At Golden, we are here to provide unwavering support and guidance throughout your journey.⁠
⁠
I have experienced the trials and tribulations of my own family building journey. With seven embryo transfers spanning five years and multiple egg retrievals, I never gave up. And now, I have my family. Just like you, you can have yours.⁠
⁠
Remember, we are by your side every step of the way. Together, we can overcome any challenge and fulfill your dreams of building a family. Let perseverance and hope lead the way.⁠

Are you thinking about expanding your family through a sibling journey with the same surrogate? Here are three important factors to consider before making your decision...⁠
⁠
1️⃣ Reflect on your previous surrogacy journey with that Surrogate. Did you have excellent communication, a solid relationship, and were expectations met? It's crucial to think about your compatibility.⁠
⁠
2️⃣ Consider your Surrogate's health and well-being. Was her previous pregnancy and delivery full-term and successful? Is she in good health and able to embark on another pregnancy in the healthiest and safest manner?⁠
⁠
3️⃣ Keep the timeline in mind. At Golden, we prioritize a full 12-month rest and recovery period for Surrogates before a subsequent embryo transfer. Planning ahead and allowing ample time for rest is crucial.⁠
⁠
When you're ready to embark on your sibling journey, we're here to support and guide you every step of the way🤝✨⁠

If you hear a surrogacy agency say this... RUN!⁠
⁠
Some surrogacy agencies use vague terms like 'up to $85,000' when discussing Surrogate compensation.⁠
⁠
But at Golden, we believe in honesty and clarity. We state the minimum amount you'll receive upfront, taking away any uncertainty.⁠
⁠
Visit our website to discover the actual number. With us, your compensation is never a vague promise; it's a real and meaningful figure. Join our family where transparency and fair treatment are at the heart of everything we do!⁠

Let's clear up a common misconception about gestational surrogacy!⁠
⁠
Many wonder about the biological connection between a Gestational Surrogate and the babies they carry. Here's the truth: there isn't one. ⁠
⁠
The baby being carried by the Surrogate is composed of genetic material created outside the womb through an embryo. This embryo is then transferred into the Surrogate. At the end of the pregnancy, the Surrogate joyfully hands that precious bundle to its rightful parents. ⁠
⁠
Surrogates are not giving up their own children or babies they are related to. That's a huge myth floating around in cyberspace, and it's time to put it to rest once and for all.⁠
⁠
Golden Surrogates--what is your response when someone asks you this question?⁠
⁠

Let's address an important aspect of surrogacy: emotional well-being. ⁠
⁠
Intended Parents, it's crucial to approach this incredible journey with optimism and enthusiasm for your Surrogate. However, we understand that it can be challenging if you're still grappling with your own infertility struggles and holding onto resentment.⁠
⁠
That's why we recommend taking a pause and consulting with experienced mental health professionals. They can help you navigate the emotional implications and fully understand the impact of bringing someone else into this sacred headspace.⁠
⁠
Remember, every path is unique, but with the right support, you'll reach your ultimate goal. Prioritizing your emotional well-being is key to embarking on a surrogacy journey in the healthiest way possible.⁠
⁠
Together, we'll create miracles!✨⁠

Question: Can you be a Surrogate if your tubes are tied?🤔⁠
⁠
Answer: Absolutely, yes!🙌⁠
⁠
We hear this question a lot, and it's important to know that in a gestational surrogacy journey, the fallopian tubes aren't needed. The embryo is directly placed into the uterine cavity, bypassing the tubes, and that's how pregnancy is achieved. So, if you've had your tubes tied, don't worry! It doesn't hinder your ability to become an incredible Surrogate and make dreams come true.⁠
⁠
Your compassion knows no bounds, and your journey awaits!⁠

Curious about what happens if you're carrying twins? Let me spill a little secret. At Golden, we never ask our Surrogates to undergo a double embryo transfer. However, we always inform our applicants beforehand that there's a slight chance the embryo could split, resulting in a twin pregnancy. But here's the thing—it happens less than 1% of the time, like fractions.⁠
⁠
While it's incredibly rare, we're always prepared for every possible scenario. If you do find yourself blessed with twins, rest assured that at Golden, we will provide you with the best medical care and unwavering support throughout your entire journey. Your well-being and the health of your babies are our utmost priority.⁠
⁠
Double the joy, double the love! 💛✨⁠

Let's talk about what truly crosses the line into the realm of tackiness and shadiness. It's not marketing itself. It's marketing done in an unethical way.⁠
⁠
We're talking about those ads that claim you can "earn up to $80,000 as a Surrogate." But here's the catch—does it actually amount to $80,000? Or is it actually $50,000, with additional incidentals that may never even occur? That, my friends, is what we call tacky.⁠
⁠
Here's a fact: 15% of couples face infertility struggles, and the staggering number of over 700 babies are born each year through surrogacy. This tells us one thing—the need is enormous. These families need the support of Surrogates to help them fulfill their dreams.⁠
⁠
So trust me when I say that marketing plays a crucial role in our mission. If your business offers services, like ours, to help build families, responsible and ethical marketing is a must.⁠

⚠️PSA⚠️⁠
⁠
This message is for all my fellow industry professionals. As we navigate the surrogacy journey, let's remember the importance of compassion and understanding. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, but we need to recognize that those on the other end of our calls and emails may be facing their own challenges.⁠
⁠
They're involved in this emotional journey, and stress is likely a constant companion. That's why we must prioritize good bedside manner and consistently be kind, caring, and compassionate.⁠
⁠
After all, building families is what we do, and it's crucial to provide the best service with empathy.⁠
⁠

People often wonder what motivates these incredible women to become Surrogates. Well, let me share a little secret with you: there are countless women out there who simply adore the experience of pregnancy. They love every moment, from the first kick to the glow of pregnancy. However, life has other plans, and they have decided that their family is complete.⁠
⁠
That's right, one of the prerequisites for becoming a Surrogate is that these remarkable women are finished building their own family.⁠
⁠
So, if you ever wondering about the driving force behind surrogacy, now you have the answer. It's a beautiful blend of love for pregnancy and the selflessness to help others achieve their dreams of parenthood.⁠
⁠
Stay tuned for more surrogacy stories and incredible journeys!⁠

To all the military families, we extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering service, dedication, and commitment to our country. ⁠
⁠
At Golden, we cherish the opportunity to work with you once you transition out of the military. We often get asked if active duty personnel or those whose spouses are serving are able to become a Surrogate. Unfortunately, the answer is always no.⁠
⁠
Our Gestational Surrogacy Agreements are meticulously designed to align with the surrogacy-friendly laws and statutes of your current residence. However, even the slightest risk of deployment throughout your journey creates a level of instability and potential legal challenges for both you and your Intended Parents.⁠
⁠
We can only embark on this incredible journey with you once the risk of deployment is diminished, typically by the time you retire from the military. Your well-being and the smoothness of the surrogacy process are our utmost priorities.⁠
⁠
Thank you for your sacrifice and dedication. When the time is right, we'll be here, ready to support you on your surrogacy journey🤝⁠

ATTENTION SURROGATES: Empower yourself with Golden!⁠
⁠
Surrogates, it's important to prioritize your well-being and secure the best benefits for your journey. If you're not already with Golden, here's a crucial tip: ask your surrogacy agency about "all-inclusive compensation packages" and what that truly entails.⁠
⁠
An all-inclusive package means that your base compensation and incidentals are bundled together into one comprehensive number which is intended to cover various scenarios. However, here at Golden, we understand that surrogacy journeys can be unpredictable. That's why we go the extra mile to offer you a fantastic compensation package PLUS incidentals that are eligible for reimbursement.⁠
⁠
We believe in accounting for every possibility and looking out for your best interests. With Golden, you can rest assured that we've got your back every step of the way. Join our community and experience surrogacy with unwavering support and exceptional benefits!⁠
⁠
GO GOLDEN!🧡⁠

Your long-awaited moment is almost here, and we've got you covered with two GOLDEN tips that often get overlooked by Intended Parents✨⁠
⁠
Tip #1: Show your Surrogate some love🧡⁠
⁠
Bring something special to express your gratitude. It could be a bouquet of flowers, a heartfelt memento, or a thoughtful gift. Let this token symbolize the incredible journey you've shared with your Surrogate.⁠
⁠
Tip #2: Be prepared for that skin-to-skin bonding moment!👶💕⁠
⁠
Wear an outfit with buttons, a zipper, or easy access to create a seamless experience when you hold your baby against your skin for the first time. Prioritize comfort and convenience for this unforgettable connection.⁠
⁠
These are two tips that are often overlooked when preparing for delivery. What other advice do you have for IPs to help make delivery day extra special?⁠

"Why does it take so long to be matched?" -every Surrogate ever.⁠
⁠
We hear you.⁠
⁠
Here's the thing…⁠
⁠
The Surrogate Screening Process can take up to 90 days or longer AND IT IS FOR YOUR BENEFIT.⁠
⁠
Read that again: Surrogates, it is for your benefit!🧡⁠
⁠
We need to make sure we request all of your previous medical records, comb through your entire history, and make sure you are very healthy.⁠
⁠
We do this because we want your pregnancy to be healthy and complication-free.⁠
⁠
We care about you!⁠
⁠
Having a beautiful surrogacy journey starts with the pre-screening process.⁠
⁠
So while 90 days feels like a long time, trust that we are going the extra mile to build the foundation for a successful journey.⁠

They say patience is a virtue. I don't know who "they" are but they clearly were not an Intended Parent.⁠
⁠
Fellow Intended Parents, let me know if you agree in the comments.⁠
⁠
The hardest part of my surrogacy journey as an Intended Parent was WAITING.⁠
⁠
Whether it is waiting for your attorney to reach out or waiting to hear from your clinic about an egg yield. Whatever phase of your journey you are in, there is waiting involved.⁠
⁠
Since I know how hard that can be, here at Golden we are committed to a 30 minute or less response time.⁠
⁠
We do this because we know there is someone on the other end depending on us.⁠
⁠
This is one example of the way Golden is different from other agencies. ⁠
⁠

If you want a business transaction type of surrogacy journey, we are not the agency for you.⁠
⁠
Here at Golden, we believe that there are three essential pillars to having a great relationship between Surrogates and Intended Parents on a surrogacy journey.⁠
⁠
TRUST, COMMUNICATION, and UNDERSTANDING.⁠
⁠
As a former Intended Parent myself, I can testify that surrogacy journeys are served best when they are built on these three pillars. ⁠
⁠
If you are looking for a fulfilling surrogacy journey and not just a business transaction, reach out to us today! ⁠

Trust me, I know what I'm talking about. That is because I was once an Intended Parent.⁠

⁠
Welcome to Golden Surrogacy, based in the Chicagoland suburbs!⁠
⁠
Yup, we are located in a real office where we meet in-person to manage your journey.⁠
⁠
This is rare for a surrogacy agency as many have their teams work remote.⁠
⁠
Not here at Golden! When you work with Golden, rest assured you are being provided the absolute best service.⁠
⁠
You deserve nothing but the best!⁠

The answer to the question, "Can the Surrogate keep my baby?" is found in knowing the difference between a TRADITIONAL and GESTATIONAL Surrogate.⁠
⁠
TRADITIONAL SURROGATE: When the Surrogate is biologically related to the baby she is carrying.⁠
⁠
GESTATIONAL SURROGATE: When the Surrogate is NOT biologically related to the baby she is carrying.⁠
⁠
When the Surrogate has no genetic relation to the child she has no legal rights to "keep the baby."⁠
⁠
Here at Golden, we only recruit Gestational Surrogates and manage Gestational Surrogacy arrangements.⁠
⁠
If you are looking for an agency to work with make sure you understand the difference between these two arrangements.⁠

MONNNEYYYYYY!!! No. That's not the reason.⁠
⁠
Believe it or not, women have an altruistic purpose and intent.⁠
⁠
Being a Surrogate is a tough job that not everyone can do.⁠
⁠
It is not something a woman would decide to do on a whim in order to make some money.⁠
⁠
Often times becoming a Surrogate is something a woman was set on doing before she even had her own kids.⁠
⁠
It is fundamental to who they are and it is in their good nature.⁠
⁠
SURROGATES-- comment below the reason you decided to become a Surrogate⬇️⁠
⁠

We know pregnancies are unpredictable.⁠
⁠
For that reason, a requirement to become a Golden Surrogate is that you must have previously given birth.⁠
⁠
We do this because we need to establish a history of healthy, uncomplicated pregnancies so that we know you are embarking upon this journey in the healthiest and safest way possible.⁠
⁠
This is one of the ways we mitigate risks to your health and safety as well as the health and safety of the Intended Parent's unborn baby.⁠
⁠
Trust us when we say we got your back🧡 We go above and beyond to ensure that your surrogacy journey goes as smoothly as possible.⁠

No, as a Golden Surrogate you will not need to schedule your own doctor appointments. However, there may be times you want to.⁠
⁠
Let's talk about it!⁠
⁠
Appointments your care team will schedule for you:⁠
➡️ Clinical phase appointments⁠
➡️ Screening appointments⁠
➡️ Any appointments leading up to your embryo transfer⁠
⁠
Appointments you may want to schedule on your own:⁠
➡️ Prenatal appointments after you are confirmed pregnant⁠
⁠
The reason you may want to schedule your own prenatal appointments is because you know your availability best.⁠
⁠
That being said, your care team is more than happy to assist you if/when you need it. They exist to support you during every step of your journey!⁠

Do you love to travel? Or maybe you have never been out of the state you live in. Either way, this video is for you!⁠
⁠
Whether you are a travel expert or have never boarded a plane before, you will be happy to know that Surrogates typically only have to travel twice!⁠
⁠
Here they are:⁠
⁠
1. Pre-screening at your fertility center⁠
⁠
2. Embryo transfer⁠
⁠
All other appointments can be completed locally🧡⁠
⁠
