Once you submit your online application, we will send you a qualification questionnaire, to ensure you meet all of our requirements to become a surrogate. If your application is approved, we will contact you to set up an interview.
During the interview we will discuss with you how the surrogacy process works, talk about your background, why you want to become a surrogate, ask some questions about your surrogate application and answer any questions you may have about surrogacy.
3. Medical Records
You will be required to send us the medical records from all of your previous pregnancies.
4. Matching with Intended Parents
Your surrogate profile will be sent to intended parents. If intended parents are interested in your profile we will introduce you to the intended parents. Assuming both parties want to work together, we then have a successful match.
You will be required to undergo a psychological evaluation, background check for you and your partner (if applicable) and a medical exam at the fertility clinic to determine if you're suitable for surrogacy.
6. Legal Contract
When you are cleared, we will refer you to a lawyer that specializes in fertility law who will draft the surrogacy contract between you and the intended parents.
7. Fertility Clinic
Once we have received legal clearance we will make an appointment for you at the fertility clinic. At the fertility clinic the doctor will give you medication to prepare you for the embryo transfer to your uterus. The doctor will notify you when the embryo transfer is ready. You will return to the clinic for the embryo transfer which is typically a quick painless procedure. After the embryo transfer is complete you will follow the instructions by the doctor regarding bed rest and medications.
Around two weeks later you will take a blood test to determine if the embryo transfer was successful. If the blood tests, indicate pregnancy, at a later date you will confirm the pregnancy heartbeat through ultrasound. During this time we and intended parents will be in regular contact with you.
When you are due to deliver the baby you will go to the hospital. The intended parents will be there to meet you and you can allow them to be in the room with you as you deliver the baby.
