Your Guide to Becoming a Montana Surrogate

What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy refers to a form of third-party reproduction in which a woman acts as a gestational carrier for an individual or couple. Through IVF and an embryo created from the eggs and sperm of the intended parents (or donors, in some cases), a gestational surrogate carries the pregnancy to term and delivers the baby. It’s important to note that, in gestational surrogacy, the surrogate does not share a genetic relationship with the baby.

We want every prospective surrogate to feel confident in the decision to apply to our program. Information on each stage of the surrogacy process has been outlined for your review below:

Surrogacy in Montana

In Montana, gestational surrogacy is considered legal because there are no laws that prohibit it. To ensure the successful completion of a surrogacy contract while also protecting your rights as a surrogate, it’s always recommended that surrogates work with a reputable surrogacy agency.

Surrogate Requirements in Montana

Your health as a surrogate as well as the health of the child you’ll carry are our chief concern. Because of this, our program has several surrogate requirements in place. These requirements are based on what has been recommended by leading medical authorities within the fertility care community.

Here are our program’s surrogate requirements:

  • You must not use tobacco products, nor be exposed to secondhand smoke
  • Your BMI must fall between 18-33
  • You must be between age 21 and 44 years old; an exception may be granted for experienced surrogates
  • You must have given birth previously with no medical complications and no more than three cesarean sections

We will review your application and, if you meet our requirements, we will connect with you directly to continue to the next steps.

Surrogate Pay & Benefits in Montana

One of the most important aspects of a gestational surrogacy agreement is the compensation package. Every gestational surrogate within our program is compensated for her role in the family-building process. In Montana, surrogates can expect to earn from $55,000 to $60,000. Your base pay, expenses, and benefits are included. One fetus can earn a surrogate $35,000, while a birth consisting of multiples will include an additional $5,000. If you have already been a surrogate in the past, you may receive higher compensation.

How to Become a Surrogate in Montana, Step by Step

Step 1: Fill Out an Application

Within the surrogacy application, you’ll be asked questions about your personal, medical, and reproductive histories.

Step 2: Complete the Surrogate Screening

Our team reviews every application submitted to us with care. If your application meets our program criteria, we’ll reach out to you to schedule a couple of interviews with our team. We’ll want to get to know you better and discuss details from the application.

Step 3: Create a Surrogate Profile

If you gain acceptance to our surrogacy program, the next step is for our team to build your gestational surrogate profile. The profile will only detail information about you relevant to surrogacy, such as pregnancies and deliveries. No personal contact information or other private details are included here.

Step 4: Get Matched With Intended Parents

The matching process is an exciting time in your journey as a surrogate. To start, we will conduct two interviews: one with you and another with your prospective intended parents. Each party will be asked a series of questions to confirm whether you will be a good match for each other. If we feel things are progressing well, then we’ll hold a group interview. At this stage, we’ll want to see if an agreement can be made across topics such as communication preferences, support systems, and what will happen if the surrogate pregnancy involves multiple fetuses.

You are considered matched with your intended parents if everyone can agree on these topics. From here, the surrogacy process will start to transition into the next phases. Throughout this time, your coordinator at Reproductive Possibilities will continue to provide support and facilitate communication between you and your intended parents.
