City of Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Cucamonga derives its name from the Native American ‘Kukamonga’ which means ‘sandy place.’ That’s an accurate description of the city as Rancho Cucamonga is considered to be a beachy sort of city. Besides having some of the best schools in California, it also has one of the richest neighborhoods in the state.
Before it became a city, however, Rancho Cucamonga belonged to the missionaries of Spain. A lot of transferring between hands occurred before the governor of Mexico bought the land in the early 1800s. He would go on to sell some acres to Tubercio Tapia. This individual started the very first winery in the state.
The town would go on to develop and grow as irrigation was laid into the area. This allowed for the farming of olives, citrus, peaches, and many vineyards. Both Mexican and Chinese laborers are to be credited for their hard labor in allowing for the city to thrive as it did. To honor them, a few monuments exist today to recognize their efforts and sacrifice.
Currently, there is an estimated population of 177,751 people living in Rancho Cucamonga. There are also quite a few big manufacturers who have taken up residence in the city. Among them are Coca-Cola, Big Lots, and Frito-Lay.
Because of its incredible schooling system, many families have moved to Rancho Cucamonga with the desire to give their children the best future possible. However, some couples may find that they’re unable to have a child through traditional means. They require surrogacy in order to have a baby.
They need someone like you. If you have been interested in how to become a surrogate and whether or not it’s right for you, then read on!
Surrogacy in Rancho Cucamonga
California is known as a surrogate-friendly state. This means that it doesn’t have any laws or regulations prohibiting surrogacy. However, that doesn’t mean the process of surrogacy is easy. If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate, then the first step you need to take is to join a surrogate agency.
Attempting to go freelance or independent can lead you down a frustrating path. It can be difficult to find intended parents who want the best for yourself as well as themselves. It’s also difficult to find intended parents who are willing to pay the price for your services at a reasonable amount.
When you choose to go freelance, especially when you’re just starting out, you can be taken advantage of easily. You might not receive the compensation that you’re actually worth. You may also be doing the job unprotected legally and without health insurance.
Surrogate Agency Benefits
When you join a surrogacy agency in California, you’re able to utilize all of the resources that they offer. One of those is assistance with finding health insurance. The policy that you currently have likely doesn’t cover the costs that you’ll face as a surrogate. Our regulations require that the intended parents cover most, if not all, of the medical costs during the process of surrogacy.
To help them, we will find a surrogate health insurance policy that covers you the best. Carrying a baby and having a healthy pregnancy is already difficult enough. The last thing we want is to have you stressed because of medical finances.
Another benefit that you receive when you join our surrogacy agency in is a surrogate attorney. This is a vital step in the process after you have been matched with intended parents. Because you’re carrying someone else’s baby, we always require our surrogates and our intended parents to sign a surrogate agreement.
This agreement covers the legal parentship of the baby, the rights of the parents, your rights, and the birth plan. When you go into labor, everything seems to kick into high gear. It can be easy for panic to ensue and for everyone to start giving out solutions.
To help ease the panic, the birth plan essentially acts like guidelines. It will include what hospital you’re going to be taken to, what doctor you’ll see, and who will be allowed in the room with you when you’re giving birth. It may also cover what kind of birthing technique is expected–whether it be a C-section or a traditional birth.
One final resource that an agency can offer you is its support. We have many other surrogates who are part of our agency. They are always willing to give advice and support to their fellow surrogates. You may even find that you have some new friends.
Compensation for Surrogates in Rancho Cucamonga, California
For a lot of surrogate mothers, compensation is an important part of their choice of whether to become a surrogate or not. If you’re thinking about becoming one, then you can expect to make around $50,000 with our agency. This is broken up into monthly installments of $4,250.
Here is a general breakdown of what you can be paid for:
- Base compensation: $40,000
- Twins/multiples: $5,000
- Monthly allowance: $250
- Experienced Surrogate bonus: $5,000
- Maternity Clothes: $1,000
- Housekeeping: $2,000
Clearly, there are ways to grow your income with our agency. Once you’ve successfully given birth to a surrogate baby, you can become an experienced surrogate. That rewards you a bonus of $5,000 for every surrogate job that you take after.
Should the intended parents ask you to carry twins or multiple children for them, then you can also receive a bonus. This is something that you likely wouldn’t have if you chose to go freelance with your service. The intended parents likely wouldn’t offer additional pay. We ensure that they do since we understand that carrying twins and multiple children is more difficult.
Before you can join an agency or become a surrogate, it’s important to know if you qualify. These surrogacy qualifications are made to ensure that our surrogates are healthy enough for the job. A healthy pregnancy is vital for everyone included.
To see if you’re a good match for our agency, make sure you pass the following qualifications:
- You must have had a successful birth prior to applying with us.
- To ensure you’re at your peak chance of having a healthy pregnancy, you must also be between the ages of 23 and 38.
- Your BMI should be between 19 and 30.
- You must also be a nonsmoker and without any addictions to either alcohol or drugs.
- You must be a legal resident, citizen, or legal immigrant of the United States.
- You must be financially stable.
- Finally, you must pass a physical and mental evaluation.
IVF and Embryo Transfer
Surrogacy begins with a few visits to a fertility clinic of the intended parents choice. After you have been matched with intended parents and signed the surrogate agreement, you’re able to get started with the physical process.
That begins in a fertility clinic with the intended parents. The parents will be receiving treatments for IVF. In-vitro fertilization is the process that’s used to form an embryo. In order for it to be successful, the intended parents need to be as fertile as possible.
As for yourself, you’ll be taking treatments with fertility medications for the embryo transfer. Your treatments will be centered around making your body believe that it’s pregnant. Otherwise, when the embryo is inserted into your body, it will believe that it’s a foreign intruder and try to get rid of it.
After your fertility treatments are over, the embryo transfer will be conducted. If everything goes as it should, you’ll officially be pregnant.
This is the moment that you’ve been waiting for since you decided to become a surrogate. For the next nine months, you’ll have to watch your health and ensure that you’re providing a nurturing environment for the baby. Otherwise, you’re able to return to your life as normal.
You can expect a few extra visits to the doctor as well as a few visits to the intended parents. Otherwise, the pregnancy is just like the other one that you had. You’re even able to return to work if you choose to.
