Surrogacy in Charlotte, NC: Frequently Asked Questions

For Surrogates

Is Surrogacy in North Carolina Legal?

Yes. While North Carolina does not have a gestational surrogacy statute, it also does not have case law that prohibits it. Courts have commonly granted pre-birth orders for married heterosexual couples, unmarried heterosexual couples, married same-sex couples, and single individuals. That said, it is important to note that the results can vary by county and judge. With ConceiveAbilities’ long track record of working successfully with surrogacy laws and surrogates in North Carolina, you can feel confident about all the legal steps and get one step closer to a successful surrogacy journey.

What Sets ConceiveAbilities Apart from Other Surrogacy Agencies in North Carolina?

In addition to our staying power of twenty-four years as a surrogacy agency, ConceiveAbilities invests in building a large community of available surrogates because, simply, surrogates sit at the very heart of our program. Read more about our process, including how we find your perfect intended parents.

How Do We Find Your Perfect Intended Parents in North Carolina?

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.

How Much Does Being A Surrogate Mother in North Carolina Pay?

One of the most common questions we receive is, how much do surrogates get paid in Charlotte? At ConceiveAbilities, our surrogate compensation package is one of the most generous, and well-planned, in the field. As a first-time surrogate living in North Carolina, you will earn up to $72,000 in base pay, depending on your specific situation, and with payments starting well before your pregnancy. Factors that increase what you get paid in base compensation include whether you have prior experience as a gestational surrogate. Take the first step to become a surrogate in North Carolina now!

Who Can Become A Surrogate Mother in North Carolina?

Our surrogate requirements make sure your surrogacy journey is as healthy and successful as possible. Review these basic criteria to find out if you qualify as a surrogate candidate. Or, better yet, take our short personal assessment to see if you qualify to be a surrogate in North Carolina!

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.
