Short Term Disability

Short Term Disability is designed to provide financial protection should there be physician ordered bedrest for the Gestational Carrier due to medical necessity.

  • If bed rest is ordered by physician, policy covers for lost wages, plus childcare and housekeeping.
  • Flexible coverage with short elimination period
  • Low premium cost
  • Financial protection for both the Intended Parent(s) and Gestational Carrier


Customarily, loss of wages for the Gestational Carrier due to bedrest is part of the Intended Parents’ contractual obligation. Loss of wages could range from $10K-$30K. This policy provides protection against exposure to a large financial risk.
