Being a Surrogate

Fast Facts

    • Not Genetically Related

      Our surrogates do NOT use their own eggs to create the babies they carry and are thus NOT genetically related to the baby.

    • Compensation

      Our surrogates are paid throughout the entirety of the process. Payments start after medical clearance and continue at regular intervals until delivery. Most surrogates take home $45,000-$70,000.

    • Who's Baby do You Carry

      Surrogates have the final say as to whom they are matched with, meaning you’ll never be carrying a pregnancy for someone you’re uncomfortable with.

      What Makes a Good Surrogate?

      Surrogate Requirements

      Surrogacy is a truly beautiful experience, but there is a lot at stake, so there are strict requirements to act as a gestational carrier with surrogate steps. Here are the requirements to become a surrogate:

      • Age

        You must be between the ages of 23 and 43. Maturity is key.

      • No Drug or Alcohol Abuse

        You must have no history of alcohol or illicit drug abuse.

      • No Tobacco and Marijuana Use

        You must be free of tobacco, marijuana, vaping, or any smoking for a minimum of 6 months.

      • Proven Birth Record

        You must have a minimum of one child who was born without pregnancy or delivery complications. Experienced surrogates get an extra 5K in compensation per previous successful surrogacy.

      • Good Health

        You must be in good health. You’ll need to obtain medical clearance for pregnancy from your OBGYN and pass a reproductive health exam by a fertility doctor. Don’t worry, we’ll help coordinate all of this.

      • Strong Support Network

        Surrogates must have support of their family. If married or in a long term relationship, the surrogate must have their partner’s support.

      • Willingness to Travel

        Surrogates must be willing to travel and be away from home for multiple days at a time without their children. On average, surrogates are away from home for 3-6 days.

      • Government Assistance

        Surrogates may not receive section 8 housing.

      • Surrogate Friendly State

        Gestational Carriers may not live in Nebraska, Louisiana, or Michigan.

      • Valid State ID or Drivers License

        All gestational carriers must have a current driver’s license or government ID.

      • No Criminal Record

        You cannot have any criminal history record.
