Surrogacy in Colorado

Colorado is regarded as a state that is friendly to surrogacy arrangements. Surrogates and intended parents should not expect any legal hurdles throughout the process, especially after the baby is born. Reproductive Possibilities has experience directly working with surrogates across the entire state.

What is Surrogacy?

It is important for potential surrogates to understand that, in gestational surrogacy, they are not the baby’s genetic mother. The baby’s genetic mother will be either the intended parent or an egg donor that has been selected. The surrogate’s role is to carry, gestate, and deliver the baby on behalf of the intended parent(s). For a surrogate’s pregnancy to be achieved, in vitro fertilization (IVF) is used to create an embryo from the provided egg and sperm. The embryo is later transferred into the surrogate’s wombs. If successful, the surrogate carries the baby to term and gives birth.

How does surrogacy work in Colorado?

Although Colorado does not currently have any laws that are specific to surrogacy, the state has historically been very welcoming of surrogacy arrangements. Furthermore, as of April 2021, Colorado lawmakers put into motion new pro-surrogacy legislation that will provide standardizations and protections for everyone involved in a surrogacy arrangement.

Outside of the official laws, the courts in the Centennial State have generally been very favorable to those seeking a surrogacy arrangement. Determining parentage is generally a simple process that often doesn’t require the surrogate to appear in court. As always, it’s important to work with an established, reputable surrogacy agency to ensure that all aspects of a surrogacy arrangement run smoothly.

Surrogate Requirements in Colorado

Prospective surrogates in our program are required to meet certain medical-related criteria in order to move forward with a surrogacy arrangement. We kindly ask that you please review the bulleted requirements below before submitting a surrogate application:

  • Must have given birth before
    • With no medical complications and less than three c-sections
  • No tobacco use
  • Be between ages 21-44, though exceptions may be made for experienced surrogates
  • Have a BMI between 18-33

Applications are reviewed on an individual basis. f you meet our requirements, then you will be accepted into the program and be on your way to becoming a surrogate.

Once accepted, Colorado surrogates are ready to be matched with their intended parents! This is a very exciting part of the process and the Reproductive Possibilities team will guide you toward a successful match.

Surrogate Pay in Colorado

Surrogate mothers typically earn between $55,000 and $60,000 per pregnancy. A single fetus typically earns a surrogate about $35,000. In the event that there are multiples, each additional fetus can earn $5,000. Experienced surrogates are offered higher compensation.

The above reflects the basic breakdown of surrogate compensation in Colorado, but we understand that prospective surrogates can have additional questions about compensation. Once you’re accepted into the surrogacy program, Reproductive Possibilities will be happy to address any questions you may have.

How Colorado Surrogates and Parents Are Matched

Matching surrogates with intended parents to create a successful surrogacy arrangement can be a bit of an art form, but Reproductive Possibilities has the knowledge and experience to make it happen time and time again. We interview surrogates closely to learn about the type of intended parents they most desire to work with and then we get to work finding a couple or individual who is the best possible fit.

Intended parents are also carefully interviewed during this stage. Once a possible match is made, the Reproductive Possibilities team sets up a conference between all parties to discuss the core elements of an ideal surrogacy journey. This discussion typically touches on the following factors:

  • Communication: What method is best? How often?
  • The surrogate’s support system: What is in place now re: family, friends, etc.?
  • Pregnancy: In the event of multiples, what is your preferred plan?

If the surrogate and intended parents are in agreement and are content to move forward together, then a match has been made! The Reproductive Possibilities team will continue to manage future conferences between both parties to ensure continued communication is taking place when needed.

For every medical aspect of the surrogacy process, surrogates have access to the state’s top-rated fertility clinics and hospitals.
