Military Spouses make great surrogates. Why? Because military members and their families are service oriented, driven to help their community and make family a priority. Like members of the service and their spouses, our surrogates feel called to help others.
Over 450 surrogates in the military community have turned to ConceiveAbilities when they begin researching their surrogacy journey. Why? Because we understand the unique set of needs of the military community and can support you through every step of the way.
A surrogate mother is a woman who carries a child that she is not genetically related to for someone else. Becoming a surrogate allows women to help other families while earning income for their own. While some surrogates match with local families, many are long distance surrogates. From almost anywhere you are stationed in the United States, we can help you bring someone’s dream of a family come true.
Becoming a surrogate also allows you to contribute to your family’s financial health, while providing flexibility to be present for your own family. While not all careers are suited for the military lifestyle, surrogacy is uniquely a good fit. Surrogacy is a labor of love and our All-In Surrogate Care & Compensation Package ensures you and your family are protected and taken care of. Blue Star Families report that Military Families want to be together. Surrogacy can help you achieve your goals while prioritizing your time with your family.

After two fairly easy pregnancies, I was called to be a surrogate. I first discovered ConceiveAbilities when we moved to Illinois. While my husband was hesitant at first, after a phone interview we were both on board and ready to start the process! After witnessing the effects infertility had on friends and family members, I understand that being a surrogate was what God created me to do. I'm constantly reminded how blessed I've been to be able to help someone in such an amazing way!
I wanted to become a surrogate for as long as I can remember. After having two easy pregnancies, I felt it was time to share my super amazing ability as a woman to help a deserving family. At the time, my husband was stationed in Illinois on Recruiting Duty for the Marine Corps, so I took the opportunity to pursue my dream; he was supportive from the very beginning! Knowing that I could help create or grow a family was the most amazing feeling in the world. After the successful delivery of a baby girl, my heart was full and I knew my life had changed forever. I decided that surrogacy was something I was extremely passionate about, so I decided to pursue it in my career as well. Now, I work here at ConceiveAbilities as a Surrogate Engagement Coordinator, helping potential surrogates get started on their own surrogacy journeys. I can’t imagine a job more fulfilling and I am still able to help grow families every day.
