Florida is a surrogacy-friendly state for both surrogates and intended parents. Florida is one of a few states that has laws regarding surrogacy, which is a great benefit for all parties involved.
Surrogacy is when a woman carries a child for someone else. There are two types of surrogacy: gestational and traditional. Gestational surrogacy is when both eggs and sperm are provided by the intended parents and/or donors. Traditional surrogacy is when the surrogate provides the eggs, making her the biological mother. In Florida, both gestational and traditional surrogacy are legal and thoroughly regulated.
To ensure the health and safety of both the surrogate and baby, surrogates must meet certain
requirements. At Reproductive Possibilities, our requirements for Florida and all surrogates are
compensation than first-time surrogates. Once you’re accepted as a surrogate, your RP team will guide you through the surrogate compensation process.
Once you have filled out a surrogate application, completed the screening process, and have been accepted into our surrogacy program, the next step is to match you with your intended parents. Reproductive Possibilities works with intended parents from all over the country and beyond.
During the matching process, we ask both our surrogates and intended parents about their preferences to ensure we make a suitable match for everyone involved. For surrogates, you can specify the type of intended parents you hope to match with. We have many amazing intended parents, that would be so happy to match with a surrogate anywhere in the Sunshine State.
Once a potential match has been made, the Reproductive Possibilities team will organize a conference in which you and your prospective intended parents discuss various details, including:
If you and the intended parents agree to move forward, then you are considered matched! The surrogacy process will then begin in earnest and your coordinator at Reproductive Possibilities will initiate communication between you and your intended parents.
