Surrogacy in Canada

Has anyone here either been a surrogate or used a surrogate in Canada? I have some friends that are looking in to the process, and I would love to help them out any way I can.

Thanks!

Hi Andi! I'm sorry no one has responded yet. I am bumping your post up for more attention. I know we have lots of Canadians in the community. I hope one can share some knowledge.

I'll hand up @shelley4 . She's doing surrogacy for her cousin and I think she's in Canada. Maybe she will see this and help you out.

Thanks! I guess it would be a little different, as you likely did a private arrangement, but I'm wondering about agencies and legal stuff. My friends are having a hell of a time finding someone to carry their babe, so I'd like to provide them with a few options if I can.

That is very exciting that you carrying a surro-babe It's something that I've been interested in for a long time, but due to life stresses and family I just cannot commit.

Thanks again!

yes, my situation may be a bit different, since i'm carrying for a cousin. we didn't need to get an agency involved. but i still had to do all the lawyer stuff.

it is really hard to find a surrogate.. i'd suggest to first explore all family options.. you never know who might be willing to do it. also, there's a great website with forums called surrogate mothers online (smo), and they have tons of info. lots of the surros are in the US, but it's possible to find some in canada, or at least give information about being in canada and working with an agency.

Hi everyone! @ecstaticmama24 as far as I know gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy are both legal in Canada, although it is illegal for a surrogate to be compensated for her service. My brother who is a Gay had her surrogate in Georgia. He was helped by this company named PlacidWay, and about the cost of surrogacy in Georgia he spent 29,000 USD for the said package. If you want I can ask him more about it.
