Surrogate Motherhood - The best surrogate mothers community

I am new to this site, and new to the whole process actually.

Im hoping I dont get to much retaliation for posting this but I just wanted to share my thoughts..


I first thought of becomming a GS after I heard about my cousins inability to conceive, and the loss of many pregnancies. This broke my heart for them..

I am a very lucky mother to a healthy happy baby boy. I could not imagine my life without him!


I started googling sites and companies etc for more info on becomming a GS.

I came across this site, which I think is great! It has answered a lot of my questions, and its great to hear other peoples stories and journeys, both surrogates and IP's.


However  I have to admit I am in shock over the amount of scams/scammers that are out there!!!

I find it rather disgusting of people.. How could anyone be so cruel?!

As if most, if not all, Ips havent been through enough heartbreak in their journey to conceive.. for "surrogates" to scam them out of precious time and money.. I had no idea anyone would be this wicked and sick to do that to someone.

My heart is broken by this.

When I first started this journey, I had no idea that surros even made money out of this process! Although I agree with surros not being out of pocket.. personally I find some of the pricings are a bit ridiculous!


Now dont get me wrong, I dont think every surro is like this! There are TONS of absolute angels who are amazing people.. bless all of you for being you!


I just wanted to say.. to anyone who has come across or been scammed.. I am so sorry.

I hope you can find your honest angel who will help complete your family.

Hi, I'm Shirley Zager, of Parenting Partners in Gurnee, IL. I'm a mom to a daughter through

surrogacy and run this agency. I have never stolen a dime from any client couple or surrogate

and I never would!  If I make a mistake running an escrow, I will fix it right away, even if it

is at my own expense. I would not dream of hurting a couple or surrogate. I don't understand

why anyone would take advantage of clients or each other trying to have a family through

surrogacy. It breaks my heart to read about the scams. There is no excuse for them. Keep

looking and hopefully, you will find honest people to work with.

everything I think is right. don't understand

how any IP, surrogate or agency could knowingly hurt/steal from clients.

There are scams in almost every area of life.  I can not tell you how many charity functions I have been a part of an stood there shaking my head at what others try to take from the system.  In this particular area though yes it is heartbreaking to read the negative stories and warnings.  But you have to overlook those negative stories or it will bring you down.  Be wise about your decision making, but dont get discouraged.  It is also a very joyful and happy experience.  I wish you all the best of luck in your decision to move forward.  There is nothing wrong with being honest about your fears or concerns. We have all been there with the same shock factor that you are feeling right now.

Thank you for your perspective- this is very true but there are good and bad people in every bushel.
