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.
