Thank you for your interest in becoming an Alabama surrogate, and we encourage you to learn about the process below.
Surrogacy is one of the most remarkable acts a person can complete. Helping loving couples and individuals become parents, when in many cases they might not otherwise be able to, is a rare and admirable gift. If you’d like to learn about how surrogacy in Alabama works, the Reproductive Possibilities team has organized a guide for you:
The state of Alabama does not currently have laws in place regarding surrogacy contracts. However, even without existing laws, surrogacy contracts can proceed in the state without issue.
A gestational surrogate is someone who carries and gives birth to a baby for someone who is not able to conceive and/or give birth on their own. This includes individuals and couples who are dealing with infertility or other medical issues that make pregnancy impossible or dangerous. Same-sex male couples and single fathers also sometimes use a surrogate. Although the phrase “surrogate mother” is sometimes used, the surrogate is not the child’s mother in any sense. She shares no genetic connection with the child, nor will she raise the child. The surrogate becomes pregnant through IVF using an embryo that was created with eggs and sperm from the intended parents and/or donors.
Alabama does not have laws that specifically regulate surrogacy. This may change in the future, but for now, it does not negatively impact anyone wishing to embark on a surrogacy journey in the Yellowhammer State. Surrogacy contracts can proceed normally in the state, though it is always advised that all parties work with a reputable surrogacy agency that will assist every step of the way.
Like all surrogacy programs, Reproductive Possibilities has a list of requirements in place to protect everyone’s health and safety. To be accepted into our program, please review the following conditions:
Reproductive Possibilities has years of experience finding the right intended parents for each and every surrogate within our program.
To kick things off, we first conduct a conference with the surrogate where we ask prepared questions that will help determine her preferences. A separate conference is held with prospective intended parents where we ask similar questions. If after these meetings our teams feel that a potential match is in progress, we’ll schedule a group conference.
During the group conference, we will discuss the following topics:
If agreements are made across all areas, then our team will consider you matched.To learn more, visit our surrogacy process page for surrogate mothers.
