What is Surrogacy?
Gestational surrogacy is a form of third-party reproduction in which a surrogate carries a child for another person or couple. The surrogate is implanted with an embryo of which she has no biological connection. If implantation is successful, she will become pregnant.

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.
