A woman took to Twitter to announce she’s in search of a surrogate mum and Nigerians have a lot to say about the requirements and the payment.
The Twitter user said the surrogate mum will be paid 1.2 million Naira for the embryo transfer, carrying the baby to term, and giving birth.
She specified that birth must be through CS.
To apply, the woman must be above 160cm in height, must have been pregnant before and must be “good looking”. Other requirements include genotype and blood group.
Twitter users reacted saying the amount the surrogate mum will be paid is too small for what is required of her.
Some pointed out that the embryo transfer process is painful, tasking, and sometimes lengthy as they may have to try multiple times before success is recorded. They also pointed out the changes to the woman’s body for 9 months and how she will be unable to live a normal life during that period.
To make matters worse, she has to suffer the pain of the incision scars and may take too long to heal from the CS surgery.
