Canada also offers national health care service, which covers up all the charges in relation to the surrogate and the delivery process. This can help both the intended parents and the surrogate mother big time in saving lot of money for all those treatments during the pregnancy .However the same social security service doesn’t cover up the child of a foreign citizens, so every cost in relation to NICU care or an incubator (in case of a premature delivery) comes as the sole responsibility of the intended parents.
