Why Receipts Are Important

closeupofpregnantwomanlookingtowindow

Receipts are a huge part of your Surrogacy journey. Making sure to keep tidy and clean records of spending can ensure safety with the reimbursement process for both you and your Intended Parents. In Canada, surrogacy is completely altruistic, which means Surrogates are not compensated anyway for their participation. They are simply reimbursed for pregnancy related expenses, as defined in a legal contract. CFC has a full department committed to our clients safety and receipt …

Now before I start going into all the wonderful things you may be subject to take during your journey, let me just state, that it will sound like A LOT, but it really isn’t when you get your schedule.

Why I Chose To Be A Surrogate With Jessica Green

jess4

I feel as though throughout this blog I should tackle different topics, coming from a surrogates point of view. Rather than a printed article, which normally is written by someone who has not gone through what we do. So let’s start right from the beginning. Why choose to be a surrogate? I decided to bring this to the women within my company, because I believe it is important to not just talk about me, but …

Sometimes beginning conversations can be difficult, but the smallest things can be conversation starters.

Let me start by telling you a little about me. My name is Jess, I am 26 (which I realize is young on some …
