You can start by filling out our surrogate application form. We will contact you within 48 hours of receiving your signed form.
Our staff will conduct a phone or an on-screen interview to review your answers in the form. Based on our interaction, we will evaluate whether you are an ideal candidate for surrogacy.
Reviewing Records & Initial Screening
Our staff will review your medical records and relevant documents. We will conduct initial examinations, screenings, and home visits for the surrogate.
Once you’re determined a suitable candidate, you’ll meet our staff in person. We will run a background check, and address all your doubts.
Meeting Intended Parents
After our medical team approves a candidate’s initial screening, we arrange for them to meet with the intended parents. It is essential for both parties to develop a healthy rapport with each other.
Once the surrogate and the intended parents decide to proceed with the treatment, our staff begin the match process and officially start the processing period.
Additional Screenings & Contracts
Our staff will arrange further medical screenings and psychological evaluations to assess a surrogate’s overall well-being. Our legal team will coordinate all contractual agreements between the surrogate and intended parents. Should a surrogate require it, we could help apply for their health insurance.
Starting the Cycle
After obtaining legal clearance, our medical team begins the medication process. During this process, a surrogate is prepared for embryo transfer.
Pregnancy Test & Ultrasounds
Ten days after the embryo transfer, our medical team performs a simple laboratory test to determine the success of the transfer.
Upon confirmation of pregnancy, a surrogate undergoes further ultrasounds. They are required to regularly attend OB appointments through the 8-10 week gestation period.
Maternity & Obstetrics
After the 10-week period spent in our fertility medical center, a surrogate would frequently consult with the obstetrician chosen by intended parents.
