It takes an extraordinary woman to become a gestational surrogate and as exciting as a surrogacy journey can be, it is made all the better by partnering with the right program, ideally one that can offer the best support gestational carriers. 

What is gestational surrogacy?

Gestational surrogacy is a process in which a woman carries and delivers a child for a couple or individual – commonly referred to as intended parents. It is the most common type of surrogacy today due to the fact that gestational surrogates are not genetically related to the baby they carry. In fact, the intended parents’ physician creates an embryo by fertilizing eggs from the intended mother or an egg donor with the sperm of the intended father or a sperm donor before they even meet their surrogate. The embryo is then placed in the surrogate’s uterus by way of in vitro fertilization (IVF)

Simply put, gestational surrogates help build families for those who cannot on their own. And for intended parents who dream of growing their family, women like you are their dream come true.

Best Illinois Surrogacy Programs

You know what they say – it all comes down to  “location, location, location”. When it comes to surrogacy, your location matters; and being in Windy City state has its perks. Chicago has cemented itself as the fertility leader in the midwest, connecting the east and west coasts. And with surrogacy organizations popping up all over the country, it pays to partner with a program who not only has your best interests at heart, but is also a leader in the industry.

KindEOS is Ideal For Chicago Based Surrogates 

KindEOS is headquartered in Chicago and has brought together the minds of highly skilled professionals from physicians to attorneys as well as Coordinators and Advocates. All of whom are there to guide you from the moment you apply. In fact, Illinois is one of the most surrogacy-friendly states, solidifying the midwest as a safe and supportive place for third-party. 

Technically speaking, you can work with a program that is headquartered anywhere in the United States and certainly, KindEOS accepts women from all over the USA but there is a special ease that comes with  working with a local program. In many instances, a local program  may have better understanding of the clinic protocols you will be asked to navigate, you will be able to attend any in-person events not to mention, you are in the same time zone and know that communication is that much easier. 

At KindEOS, we utilize every advantage the Chicagoland area has to offer in order to make your journey a positive and memorable experience. We go as far as to consider the convenient international airports, public transit, and established partnerships that allow local surrogates to have more free time and less disruptions to your family’s daily life. Other surrogacy programs may seem appealing at first, but we encourage you to dig a little deeper. Ask yourself, will they be able to coordinate logistics for me in a place they’re not familiar with? Do they have a relationship with the surrogacy professionals needed to carry a journey out in my location? And how much time will I have to take off from work or my family to partake in a program across the country?

Once you start to ask yourself questions and compare the pros and cons of each program, the inevitable topic of compensation is brought to the forefront. KindEOS offers gestational surrogates a generous and flexible compensation & benefits package that is tailor made to your specific needs. Why? Because you deserve it! And no two journeys are the same.

We’ve taken the experiences of our former surrogates, intended parents, and even egg donors and molded it into the foundation of our program – making it an ever evolving, cutting edge model that other agencies mirror to this day. 

You can expect to learn and be cared for throughout your entire journey at KindEOS, in turn, allowing for the best possible outcomes for you, your family, and the intended parents. And while there are numerous things to consider before taking the plunge into the surrogacy world, you can rest assured that our team is quick to handle any and all situations.
