Surrogate Mother Requirements


There are several requirements you need to meet in order to be a surrogate mother in our program

Becoming a surrogate is one of the most life affirming things that you can do with your life. We happen to believe that surrogates are very special people indeed, and we’re happy that you’re considering joining the ranks.

That said, not just anyone can become a surrogate. It’s a long process with many components. Understandably, we need to consider multiple aspects of your life to decide if you’re well qualified for this unique role.

Many of the guidelines established for qualifying surrogates are managed by fertility clinics and organizations that help keep surrogacy ethical. You’ll find that many of these requirements are the same from agency-to-agency. Others will vary slightly.
