Surrogacy in Minnesota: Frequently Asked Questions

Is Surrogacy in Minnesota Legal?

Yes! While Minnesota does not have a gestational surrogacy statute, it does not have case law that prohibits it. Some, but not all, courts allow pre-birth orders for married couples, unmarried couples and single individuals whether they are heterosexual or same-sex. At ConceiveAbilities, we have significant experience working in Minnesota to ensure that the intended parents secure parentage rights to their baby and to ensure that you, the surrogate, are properly compensated.

What Sets ConceiveAbilities Apart from Other Surrogacy Agencies in Minnesota?

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 Minnesota?

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 40 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.
