Surrogacy in Kansas

At this time, there are no specific laws relating to gestational surrogacy in the state of Kansas. While this means that there are no laws that prohibit the practice of surrogacy, it also means there are no state laws that enforce surrogacy contracts. As such, it is strongly recommended that all parties work with a reputable agency and attorneys to maintain and navigate all legal needs associated with surrogacy.

Surrogate Requirements in Kansas

Before a gestational surrogate is accepted into our program, she must meet our list of requirements. These requirements help to establish safety measures for every surrogate and baby she carries.

A gestational surrogate must:

  • Have a BMI (body mass index) between 18 and 33
  • Be between ages 21 and 44 years old (exceptions are sometimes possible for experienced surrogates)

How to Become a Surrogate in Kansas, Step by Step

Step 1: Fill Out an Application

The gestational surrogate application will ask questions about your medical and personal history, especially regarding previous pregnancies and deliveries.

Step 2: Complete the Surrogate Screening

We review every application that is submitted. If your application meets our program requirements, we’ll schedule a series of interviews with you so we can get to know you better and talk through the application details.

Step 3: Create a Surrogate Profile

After these interviews take place and our team is ready to move ahead, we’ll create your surrogate profile using information about your medical history and personality. The purpose of the profile is to be shared with intended parents so they can get a feel for whether you’d be a good fit for them as a surrogate. The profile doesn’t contain any private information, such as your full name or contact information.

Step 4: Get Matched With Intended Parents

Our team connects with surrogates and intended parents separately to help ensure a suitable potential match can be made. If we feel confident in a potential match, we’ll organize a group conference so all parties can discuss the core details of the surrogacy arrangement, such as communication preferences, what is the agreed plan in the event of multiples, personal support systems, etc.

If both you and the prospective intended parents decide to work together, then a match has been made and the surrogacy journey can begin! To learn more, please visit our Surrogacy Process for Surrogates page.
