MULTIPLES BENEFIT PACKAGE
IARC’s “multiples” Benefit Package includes additional support in the second half of pregnancy to account for the additional physical commitment of a multiple pregnancy. Below is a list of the benefits specific to multiple pregnancies that are included in the benefit package.
Multiple Pregnancy Fee
An additional $8,000 is given for carrying a multiple pregnancy. This is in addition to the base compensation amount.
An amount of $200 is sent monthly to cover your day-to-day expenses that arise related to this journey. This will be increased to $250 starting the 1st of the month after 16 weeks post-transfer and continuing until birth to account for extra mileage and incidental expenses related to local appointments.
Included Expenses: Expenses related to local appointments (child care, parking, and mileage under 100 miles round trip), phone/mailing charges, prenatal vitamins/supplements, feminine hygiene products, and other miscellaneous expenses.
The Monthly Contribution will begin the date the Surrogacy Contract is signed and continue until 8 weeks post-delivery. This Monthly Contribution will pause for any months prior to pregnancy in which the program is inactive due to mutual agreement between both intended parents and surrogate, and no appointments are attended.
Maternity Clothing Allowance
IARC Surrogates receive a maternity clothing allowance in the amount of $500 paid at 13 weeks’ gestation. An additional $250 allowance is given at 20 weeks post-transfer in the event of a multiple pregnancy.
Late Pregnancy Support
For anyone carrying a multiple pregnancy, a bi-weekly housekeeping allowance of $100 will be provided to provide for housekeeping services starting at 20 weeks post-transfer through the birth.
