  3. Screenings: Successful candidates and their partners undergo criminal background checks, psychological screenings, and medical evaluations. We seek physically and mentally prepared individuals committed to the surrogacy journey.
  4. Meeting & Matching: Upon clearing screenings, your profile is shared with the intended parents. You’ll also review their profiles. A meeting is arranged, either in person or via video chat, to establish a strong connection.
  5. Medical Clearance: Obtain final medical clearance from the fertility clinic, complying with FDA and CDC regulations. Your partner may need screening too. We guide you through every step.
  6. Contract: A detailed surrogacy contract is developed, outlining responsibilities, insurance, and payments. Your case manager ensures clarity, and all parties sign and notarize the contract.
  7. IVF Cycle: Following legal clearance, the fertility clinic designs a personalized IVF plan with medical visits and medications. Your IVF nurse coordinator guides you through the process.
  8. Embryo Transfer: A painless procedure that takes about 5 minutes. Support from family and friends is welcome. Adhering to the medication schedule remains crucial post-transfer.
  9. Pregnancy Test: A β-hCG blood test detects early pregnancy about two weeks post-transfer. Further testing confirms the pregnancy. Regular prenatal care continues.

Some of Our Most Commonly Asked Questions

No, you don’t.

There are two types of surrogacy: traditional and gestational.

In a traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is the biological mother of the child she carries. Her egg is artificially inseminated. The child is thereby genetically related to both the surrogate mother, who provides the egg, and the intended father, or anonymous donor.

In gestational surrogacy, the intended parents use either their own eggs or donor eggs to create the embryos for transfer. So the child is not genetically or biologically related to the surrogate mother. We only work with gestational surrogates.

The legal surrogacy agreement is there to protect you if something were to go wrong during your pregnancy. The agreement is clear that you have no legal rights to the child, so the child would not become your responsibility. A designated guardian would take over the responsibility for the baby in the event that something happens to the intended parents.

Another protection is that all your compensation under the contract is placed in a third-party escrow account, which will ensure you are safe and secure financially during your pregnancy.

Like any traditional pregnancy, there are certain medical risks associated with being a surrogate. With gestational surrogacy, there are also some minor risks associated with IVF treatments and the embryo transfer process. Surrogates may experience some discomfort such as premenstrual syndrome, side effects from injectable medicine, or implantation bleeding. The risks of experiencing a multiple pregnancy (pregnancy with more than one baby) and preterm labor would increase if multiple embryos are transferred to the surrogate. You should be made aware of these surrogacy risks. These risks can be substantially minimized by strict medical and psychological screening. And as always, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions precisely, to take the proper medication, and to schedule an appointment as soon as possible if you have sudden onset of symptoms or something feels wrong about your pregnancy.

While it is rare, there are sometimes emotional challenges for potential surrogates to consider. You may be at risk for depression or anxiety. You may also experience some difficult feelings during or after the surrogate pregnancy. Building a solid support system that you can count on will help you get through the whole process smoothly and successfully. This includes not only friends and/or family members who can talk to you or encourage you, but also mental health professionals or therapists experienced in surrogacy issues. We’ll also guide you through every step of your surrogacy, making sure you have the practical and emotional support you need along the way.

Although we cannot give you an exact time because there are many factors that can contribute to this process, qualified surrogates can be matched within one week. Since our matches are based on the preferences of both parties involved, the matching process may take longer if either side has very particular needs.

The typical medications you will be prescribed are prenatal vitamins, birth control pills, Lupron, Progesterone, and Estrogen. Some medications are taken orally and others need self-injections. Laboratory testing includes a test for sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and other communicable diseases, a urine drug screening, and a test for certain viruses and infections such as hepatitis and HIV.
