IN HER OWN WORDS

Share your reasons & motivations for pursuing surrogacy:

"I want to be a surrogate again because my first experience was such an amazing one and it felt so nice to be able to give the parents their dream of having a child that I wanted to do it again for another family who is in need of a surrogate to fulfill that dream."

What would you like prospective Intended Parents to know about you?

"I would like the prospective parents to know that I am very excited about the possibility of taking this incredible journey with them."

We believe that everyone deserves a family, tell us about yours:

"I have two girls, Malaya, 8 and Maddie, 2 1/2, they are both very awesome in their own unique ways! Malaya is in 3rd grade at a school that focuses on math and science, which are her two favorite subjects, she just got involved in the drama club there and so far is loving it. Maddie will be 3 in November and is really just developing this extremely funny, sweet personality."

Who will be your greatest source of support through this journey?

INSURANCE

An independent review of Ashlin's current plan with United resulted in a professional opinion that she will be able to use her policy for expenses related to surrogacy. However, this should not be seen as a guarantee of coverage.

Once you are closer to an embryo transfer, a consult with Art Risk will provide you with an updated analysis and opinion of coverage options, and also discuss possibilities which may arise that can impact the level of benefits obtained. Insurance plans can and often do change midway through pregnancy. When considering whether to procure a secondary policy for your GC it is important to keep these possibilities in mind. Please keep in mind that the below letter is not a guarantee of coverage. The analysis is intended only as a tool to be considered as you develop your plan for securing health insurance for your surrogate's journey.

"The truth is that maternity coverage for surrogacy is often a luxury. So I do everything possible to educate and prepare my clients in the matching matters process" —Alicia Denefe, ConceiveAbilities
