  • I think its okay. You are offering a valuable service to someone who other wise would not be able to have a child.

  • Good god pregnancy is such a big job I think getting paid to do it is fine. I think you would be nuts to do it free, lol. I think it is your decision and you are going to make some people very happy good for you. You deserve compensation for carrying a child for 9 months, keeping it safe, etc.

  • I think you are about to give some lucky couple the best gift there is!
    Don't worry about what others think...I have offered to be a surrogate for a friend who can't carry to term.
    As far as the financial compensation, between lost wages, possible PPD, and health risks ~ you'll earn it!
    Good Luck to you!

  • Do you have children? Is this going to be your egg? If it is how are you going to feel giving your child away? I don't think it is wrong however I do know you need to explore all of the avenues. It really does not matter what others think, what do you think. Are you married? How does your spouse feel about it.

  • I think what your doing is absolutely beautiful and a tough job. You are providing a service for a very lucky couple so why shouldn't you be getting paid for it. I just hope that you keep in mind that at the end of the pregnancy you must give that child to the parenting couple which I would find hard because with pregnancy comes the closeness and attachment to that baby. Otherwise, what your doing is great:)

  • I think it's a beautiful thing to carry a child for someone else. Don't worry what others think. The gift you give these people doesn't have a price.

  • As long as you do not charge too much, and really take care of the baby in your womb, it's a great gift.
