How to Become a Surrogate in New Mexico, Step by Step

Step 1: Fill Out an Application

Completing a surrogate application is the first step towards becoming a surrogate. The applications are straightforward and ask for information about yourself including your medical history. Details about your past reproductive history will also be covered.

Step 2: Complete the Surrogate Screening

Once our team carefully reviews your application and identifies you as a potential candidate, the next step is to conduct the screening stage, where we get to know you better through a series of one-on-one interviews.

Step 3: Create a Surrogate Profile

If you are accepted into our surrogacy program, our team will next work on creating your surrogate profile. Every profile includes an overview of the surrogate’s medical history as well as details about your personality, hobbies, views, etc. While these profiles are personal in many respects, information such as your full name, address, and contact information will be completely confidential and not included.

Step 4: Get Matched With Intended Parents

When a prospective match is in progress, our staff will hold separate meetings with you as the surrogate and the potential intended parents to determine whether all parties can potentially agree on the core contract points. Once we feel that we have identified a solid potential match, we’ll arrange a conference where you and the prospective parents will meet to discuss communication goals, support systems, the plan for multiples, etc.

After the group conference, if all parties agree on the above points, then a match will have been made! Our team will continue to provide guidance and support as the surrogacy process begins to move forward.
