Birmingham Surrogacy FAQs

For Surrogates

Is Surrogacy Legal in Alabama?

Yes, current surrogacy laws in Alabama confirm the process is legal. While Alabama does not have a gestational surrogacy statute, it also does not have case law that prohibits it. Courts have commonly granted pre-birth orders, which are essential for establishing legal parentage, for married couples and single individuals regardless of their sexual orientation. That said, it is important to note that the results can vary by county. In counties where pre-birth orders are not allowed, post birth adoptions are available. With ConceiveAbilities’ long track record of navigating Alabama surrogacy laws and working successfully with surrogates in Alabama, you can be confident about the legal process and a successful surrogacy journey.

Is A Surrogate Related To The Baby?

No. A ConceiveAbilities surrogate does not share any genetics with the baby they are carrying for another family. Learn more about the difference between traditional and gestational surrogacy.

What Sets ConceiveAbilities Apart from Other Surrogacy Agencies in Alabama?

Pursuing fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) and surrogacy through an agency is critical for ample support; however, there are many agencies you can choose from and you shouldn’t take the selection process lightly.

How Do We Find Your Perfect Intended Parents in Alabama?

Our Matching Matters process sets us apart from other surrogacy agencies. We understand the significance of the right match, and we are proud of our Matching Matters process that focuses on the connection between a surrogate and the intended parent. Our experience has proven that matching does matter and our 97% initial acceptance rate proves it. The right match lays the foundation for the entire surrogacy process, resulting in a successful and rewarding experience. Often surrogates and intended parents, who start off as strangers to one another, become an extended part of one another’s families. For those who seek this depth of connection, and equally for those who don’t, ConceiveAbilities uses its Matching Matters to understand your goals and make matches that make sense.

Getting to know you Why do we ask?
Have you given birth before? A history of at least one full-term and uncomplicated pregnancy is essential to ensuring your surrogacy journey is healthy and successful.
Where do you live? Compensated surrogacy is legal in most, but not all, states. And, certain locations are highly valued by intended parents, which allows you to earn higher compensation.
Are you a long-term US resident? The surrogacy journey is lengthy and is accomplished only by working with a US-based IVF clinic.
How old are you? At the time you are matched with intended parents, you should be between 21 and 43 years of age.
Are you physically healthy? You must have an uncomplicated medical history, not be over- or under-weight, not currently smoke, and be free of certain chronic conditions.
Are you emotionally healthy? Your surrogacy journey is demanding and requires a stable foundation in your life without undue stress.
Why do you want to be a surrogate? Perhaps the most important requirement is your motivation for pursuing surrogacy. Surrogacy creates an exciting purpose and you can make a profound impact on helping others build their family, and get well-paid for doing so.
